1997 Chevrolet Blazer LS from North America
More trouble than it's worth
Gas gauge quit working shortly after purchase.
Key would sometimes get stuck in ignition. Now it's stuck permanently.
Rear passenger window fails to roll up frequently.
Windshield wipers dysfunctional. Paid to have the problem repaired, later reimbursed by dealership when a "recall" notice was sent.
Rear window cleaner does not work at all.
Upper ball joints replaced when "recall" notice was sent. I had to beg and cry to get the dealership to replace the ball joints since they said I failed to perform proper maintenance on the vehicle.
When the headlights are on, they "flash" to the daytime running lamps.
Passenger side window broken, about ready to fall off.
Found out today that lower ball joints, idle arm, and pitman arm need replacing.
Heater quit working 3 winters ago, but has worked fine since then. It just started working one day, I didn't have any work done on it.
Air conditioner has a problem, but not sure what. During the summer I have to continuously add coolant. Afraid to find out the cost to repair this one.
I like the blazer itself, but it has so many problems and is quite a headache. It bothers me to see that my problems aren't isolated. I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone (I'd feel bad to even give mine away!) and I certainly have reservations about purchasing another Chevrolet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
