Print this page Notes: The 2002-2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer is known for many things, but perhaps it is most famous for its faulty fuel gauge.

This gauge flip-flops more than a politician during election season. Some report that the gauge says "empty" after a fill-up, while others report the gauge says "full" when they're running on fumes. Either way, there's one thing everyone seems to agree on: the darn thing is just wrong.

Following hundreds of complaints and a few accidents allegedly caused by the malfunction, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into the issue in May 2011. Unfortunately for frustrated owners, no recall has been announced.

Trailblazer 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles


At 45,000 miles I have had to have the tierods replaced and there is still something wrong with the passenger side wheel assembly, but they can't seem to figure out what the squeak is. It could be a bearing I have been told, but they don't know without tearing it all down. 2nd is the power window on the drivers side is getting slower to come up and I can smell wires burning at times (although I am not sure if the 2 are related) I have also had to replace the "idler pulley" at 42,000 miles.....this seems ridiculous as it keeps turning out to be one thing after another"???"

I bought this 2007 Chevy Trailblazer and baby it like there was no tomorrow. Now everything is breaking. First it was the racking pinion steering. Some how the seal busted. Second, the fuel gauge began to register empty even though it was full and joint ball went bad making some vibration and squealing sound. I got the fuel gauge fixed and joint ball, now the struts that lift rear window doesn't work. I was so eager to get this Trailblazer but it is costing me more money than what it is worth.
