1998 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America
My 1998 LS Blazer needed a new OIL COOLANT LINE at about 40,000 miles. A couple of months later my driver side window motor failed on me while I had my window down and it was raining. The problem didn't stop when my wife was driving home from work, the HEATER CORE went out on her at 70,000 miles. The funny thing about it was I had to change the SEAT ADJUSTER on the passenger side because it broke on my brother while he was trying to adjust his seat. It was a very uncomfortable ride for my wife and little brother. I changed it right away when we arrived home in Michigan. At the time I had just recently bought the SUV. Right now I am experiencing some suspension problem on the driver side and the vehicle only has 80,000 miles on it. Recently, I also had to fix a leak on the wiper hose for the back because it was leaking all over the bottom of the carpet. I didn't realized this until I was vacuuming and saw a puddle of washer fluid coming from the bottom of the back seat. I took the interior apart and fixed the problem. I guessed there are too many minor problems with this vehicle when it hasn't even reached the 100,000 miles yet.
I have always liked and enjoyed GM products. At this point I owned two American made vehicles, one is a Ford Taurus and the other, a Blazer. The Blazer, I still have some faith in it, but it has cost too much to fix this and that. As an Asian American, I tried to support American products, but the quality is not there anymore. My wife and I have decided to switch to a Japanese vehicle after the Blazer goes down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
