2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazerSSTWebmaster - Raleigh, NC09/30/2010
Our 04 TrailBlazer has 44k miles and we've already spent over $1200 in repairs. It developed a mysterious grind/squeak in the front end that turned out to be both front hubs needing replacement, the wheel bearings are integrated into the hubs and cannot be removed to be repacked or replaced on their own, on an older car this would've been a $90 fix for wheel bearings.
There's another mystery noise that I'm afraid to look at because we can't afford another $1000 plus repair.
Secondly the instrument cluster doesn't work, this is a known issue with the base Silverado and Chevy issued a recall, they refuse to do the same (for the same issue with the same cluster) for the 04 TrailBlazer, the instrument cluster runs about $550 to replace.
I don't know if things improved with later models, because frankly I won't invest the money in another one.
This vehicle handles like a barge and is dangerously underpowered, the only way to pass another vehicle is to stand on the gas, there's no smooth acceleration...
Spend your money on another vehicle, the 04 TrailBlazer isn't worth the scrap value

This vehicles has a smooth, quiet ride. It has 4 wheel drive so I can go into the rockier part of the mountains. It gets excellent gas mileage...drove 272 miles and still had a 1/4 tank of gas going uphill. Drove back 272 miles going mostly downhill and still had a 1/2 tank of gas. The only complaint I have is there is no room to put my purse on the console while driving (very minor complaint!)
