    I am looking into getting an 02-04 trailblazer preferably under 75000 miles as my new daily driver. I really dig SUV's lately, just fear the gas mileage. I still have the modding bug but no offroading for me. I'm coming from a Toyota Celica so big is new to me. Window tint, system, debadge...possibly wheels

    Are there any owners on here that can tell me about their experiences? Pros/Cons, what to look for, or even alternative suggestions.

    Get an Envoy instead of the TrailBlazer. Much better interior.

    The Atlas I6 is a great motor.

    The envoy does have a better interior...but they are the same truck.

    I had a 2004 Trailblazer and the only complaint from it, is from the back passengers feeling nauscious. I think its because of the location of the rear seats in relation to the rear axle.

    Nonetheless...lots of power, enough room, and a good size vehicle.

    My wife has an 04, and its a good vehicle, no major problem, and the gas millage is about 15-17 mpg, mixed driving...

    the inside is just OK, nothing bad, but nothing extra either...

    Overall I like it, and it drives nice (other than needing brakes and new tires...)

    be careful when looking at '02s.
    they are notorious for transmission failure. cost to replace is around $2500.

    i did alot of reasearch when i bought my 02 but didnt find that out until after i bought it. thankfully, mine is a 4x4with the limited slip rear end, and i think it was only the rear wheel drive models, but luckily it hasnt happened to me yet. trailvoy.com has alot of info and resources.
