1997 Chevrolet Blazer LS from North America
Junk on wheels
The fuel pump system just had to be replaced.
A complete set of front brakes just had to be replaced (pads, rotors, calipers, etc.).
There is no heat (heating core?).
The 4WD does not engage.
The windshield wiper system has to be replaced.
The whole front end (tie rods, etc.) needs to be replaced. The auto will not pass inspection because it is so bad.
The electric side mirrors do not work properly.
Plastic sections of interior and exterior are falling off.
The carpet on the driver's side has completely worn through.
$3,000 in repairs just in one month.
The same problems plague this model from vehicle to vehicle. Ask around.
General Motors will not respond to formal inquiries and complaints. General Motors does not stand behind their product. I kid you not... this is what a representative said to me... "So what do you want from us?" (This was in response to my informing her that I was facing $3,000 in repairs in one month.)
I will never purchase another GM product again. To me, GM = Gross Mistake.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree with this one, I have a 1998 Blazer and I also have no heat, now my transmission is leaking. I would like to know if the transmission and heat problems is as common as it seems. We have always driven Chevy, but this Blazer makes us think about looking else where.
