Chevrolet TrailBlazer Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr SUV 285-horsepower 4.2L I6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Have owned it for better than six months and nothing has had to be repaired.
2008 4dr SUV 285-horsepower 4.2L I6
4-speed automatic RWD
So far this truck gives me no reason to believe it will be any less reliable than my 2002. It tows just as well, and there seem to be many strides from GM to make it better in other areas. So far, so good.
2007 4dr SUV 291-horsepower 4.2L I6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
Our first was a 2003. We only experienced a taillight that was replaced under recall and foam baffles in the front fenders that slid out of place. And knock the playskool interior, but it stands up better than many more stylish competitors.
2006 4dr SUV 291-horsepower 4.2L I6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
A durable vehicle was an important factor in the purchase of this vehicle.
2003 4dr SUV 275-horsepower 4.2L I6
4-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
4 wheel drive gets me through most unplowed roads in winter. Not afraid to drive in one.

The powertrain will last much longer than the rest of the car. Interior wear and random parts failures will leave it undriveable before the engine & transmission quit.

With the hot tune i have over 100 more TQ from stock and over 40HP and boy can you feel that TQ! Great for towing my small RV and it runs up the hills now! 100 more TQ make it feel like a whole new vehicle and 18mpg towing a 5k trailer! Beat that!
2005 4dr SUV turbocharged 160hp 2.8L I4 Diesel

I have only had two things go bad under warranty. the ball joints were recalled and the EGR valve had to be replaced.

It has suffered several serious problems despite being just five years old and mostly driven on-road. Cracked radiator, broken driveshaft, now leaking power steering hoses. I have owned 10-year-old cars that never had so many problems.
2005 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6

No significant problems yet, but just waiting to see what happens due to past brand experiences.
2003 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6
4-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Catalytic converter failed after just 35k miles. Had a couple of transmission issues, although they were covered by the 7 years powertrain warranty.
2003 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6

The front ball joints had to be replaced. Air conditioning went out. Front brakes have a short life.
