Print this page Notes: The Trailblazer emerged from an "upscale trim line" of the Blazer, but there's nothing upscale about its transmission problems or its wonky, unpredictable headlights.

2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 192004

Trailblazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles


I just had an alignment done on our 2002 Trailblazer and was told that the right front tie rod is going to need to be replaced. The mechanic showed me how much play was in the right front tire and wheel. It was atleast one half inch. There are no grease fittings on the 2002 Chevy Trailblazer because they are sealed. The mechanic said that for this to happen it would of not had enough grease put in at the factory. He also said that this is a major safety issue because the wheel can break at the tie rod and the front wheel will not be controllable.
