1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 V6 from North America
P.O.S. Never buy another one :- (
3 front wheel bearings.
2 complete break jobs (rear calipers, all disks, pads AND master cylinder once).
4 ball joints.
Torsion bar bolt broken off.
Torsion bar bushings replaced.
2 sets of shock absorbers.
4 sets of quality tires (Good Year Wranglers ATS and Bridgestone Duellers AT), eaten away like crazy.
MAJOR vibration above 50mph, never found what it was, although I think it's coming from the drive shaft angle to the differential, but Chevy dealer can't repair after 5 trips.
Both seat recliner handles broken off.
2 U-joints on the drive shaft.
A fuel pump.
3 oxygen sensors on the exhaust system.
Clunking noise if the engine compartment, never figured out what it was, either me or the dealer.
AND the odometer display blinking on/off (that was the last drop that told me"GET A NEW TRUCK AND STOP SPENDING MONEY ON THIS BOTTOMLESS MONEY PIT...)
I owned a Blazer LS 4x4, 2 door, 130K KM, bought brand new. I would rate it the worst piece of junk ever produced by GM and that I have ever been suckered into buying. The only thing it had was the looks, as it was the GFX 25th edition. Finally seen the light and bought a Canyon recently...
The only good thing about this P.O.S. might be the Vortec 4.3 engine which performed flawlessly, and is rated one of the best.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
