Trailblazer EXT

  • 85,000 miles
2002 Chevy trailblazer service engine soon light will come on along with the reduced engine power light and the vehicle will not go faster than 40 mph. Sometimes it will not go more than 20 and 10 mph. I've taken the vehicle to the dealer and they cleaned the throttle and changed some filters and 2 days later....the same lights come on and the engine power is reduced. The dealer doesn't know what the problem is so the vehicle continues to do this and has been doing this for the past 6 months. There was a recall on the control arms in 2001 that affected the 2002 Chevy trailblazer. I purchased my trailblazer in 2002 so I didn't receive any recall information. My control arms need to be replaced and I want to know why my vehicle isn't covered under the recall.

Trailblazer EXT 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles
Have been having major trouble with the front end. Had it checked multiple times at the dealer and at a local mechanics shop and the ball joints and bushings had to be replaced. Even the the warranty was finished, the dealer did not charge me for this, but unfortunately I thought that this would take care of the noise on the front end, but it is still there!! also yesterday, April 24, 2007, I had to have the fan clutch replaced. This vehicle only has 35,000 miles. I have also had the service engine soon light come on and stay on several times and after reading other complaints, I should check out the gas tank for any cracks. This is my first and last GM product!!!! it spends more time being fixed then on the road. I have also had trouble with the rear tail light burning out, but that has since been fixed!
