2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer from North America
Very unreliable and a huge money pit.
Before warranty was up:
The backseat driver side window will no longer go up or down.
The right tail light has had to be replaced three times so far. (recall)
The dealership replaced the first tail light because of the recall, but refused to pay for the additional replacements.
The weather stripping is coming off the doors.
We had to have 4 large cracks fixed in the front windshield.
The fan that cools the engine had to be replaced.
After warranty was up:
The fan that cools the engine had to be replaced again.
The water pump had to be replaced.
The gear shifter pops up and off making it very hard to actually change gears safely.
The key has been stuck in the ignition twice.
This SUV is comfortable and roomy and makes for nice traveling. However, the chances of it getting you where you are going are not too good.
Our Trailblazer has been nothing but one big money pit and we are now looking at trading it in for something more reliable. Honestly, every other Trailblazer owner I have ever known has had multiple problems with their TB too and many of the same problems we had with ours.
I recommend you not waste your money on this vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I noticed you had an auto there... If the shifter is not all the way into park, it will not release the key, an annoying safety feature. And how can windshield cracks be a manufacturer defect? You just seem unlucky with stone chips! Don't blame your truck for your driving. I don't even have a Trail Blazer, or a chevy anything for that matter. Read "High and Mighty" by Keith Bradsher, it'll open your eyes to a lot of stuff about SUV's you should know. and another thing... Learn to spell, don't let your brain go to "WASTE"

Waste is spelled correctly.

Actually she said the gear shifter pops off; nothing about the key. TrailBlazers are junk period.
