1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS 3.4 Vortec from North America


I hope all cars I buy perform this well!!!


When I first got the vehicle I had some problems with the rotors. They were very rusted out, but they replaced them under warranty.

I also had a problem with the CV joint so that was a couple hundred dollars out of the pocket.

It also only takes premium gas.

General Comments:

This car has been great. I have put 50,000 miles on it in a year and a half and it runs great. I have had so many problems in the past with pontiac's so I am very happy with this one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS 6.0 from North America


A good vehicle, but very expensive to maintain


I have replaced 2 front wheel barrings at a cost of $800.00.The metal door pins have rusted and the doors will not shut correctly. The back window cleaner will not work, and the back wiper blade does not even touch the glass. This vehicle has more creaks and groans then anything that I have ever driven in. The 2nd week that I owned it the seat adjuster handle on the driver's side came off right in my hand, and had to be adjusted with a pair of plier's.

General Comments:

This vehicle even though being a pain in the pocketbook, is pretty reliable and the 4 wheel drive runs great. I have other family who own a 1999 Blazer, 4 door and have had the same problems with the Wheel Barrings. If only GM would recall and take responsibility, then I and I'm sure a whole lot of other people would be much happier and more likely to keep their 99 Chevy Blazer's.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS V6 from North America


Never again!


In the summer of 2002, the transmission had to be repaired. A sun-shield had broken. The cost of the repair was $2,200. The seals around the doors seem old already, causing much wind noise at higher speeds. I've noticed water drops on the driver's side door next to the window controls from time to time. This could explain why not long after I had purchased the blazer the window controls on that side started to fail. At that time the car was under warranty so it was repaired without cost to me. The brakes squeak. I was told by the dealership that this was normal.

General Comments:

This was the first nice car I ever owned. I am very disappointed.

I never would have imaged having to face a repair that large on a newer vehicle. I am now seriously considering getting rid of the car. I'm concerned it will only have more problems.

This is an over sized Yugo


At 12 miles, after signing the papers, noticed spot weld dimples in the door.

Had to have hood insulator replaced at 6,000.

3rd brake light broke at 10,000.

New battery at 18,000 and 34,000.

Seat back handle on passenger seat broke off at 28,000 miles.

Replaced the alternator at 30,000 miles.

Had to have supplemental restraint system (Air Bag) repaired at 40,000 miles.

New water pump, heater core, and a/c compressor at 53,000.

General Comments:

I bought this truck because I thought it would be a good family vehicle. After the $29,000 sticker and the 2,500 in a/c and cooling system repairs, this truck just gets more and more expensive.

The latest happening to it now at 54,000 is a ticking noise from one of the output shafts.

I will dump this truck at the next chance I get. This is way to much for me to pay.

I think this truck was built with all the parts that the manufacturer did not want to put into the other trucks.

I also have a 1999 Blazer, and have had similar problems--alternator, a/c compressor, water pump, third brake light, stereo CD problem, ball joint replaced, instrument panel replaced, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

I also own a 1999 Blazer with very similar problems. The fuel gauge quit working at approx 25,000 miles. It was "certified" vehicle so the dealer fixed it, but it took 6 trips to the dealer and 3 rental cars (at their) expense to realize it was the sending unit. They also forgot to bolt the fuel tank straps tight and after 3 weeks of a rattle in the rear end I isolated the problem and tightened them myself. Now I have a sound in the front end that sounds like a bad CV joint or ball joint. Seat lever broke on passenger side just after purchase. Oil leaks on lines to what I suspect is an oil cooler. This vehicle has been nothing but problems from the start. I would like to purchase US made vehicles, but not if they are going to drain my wallet and sanity. Other problem with after market silencer alarm system always going off. I disabled it before one of my neighbors disabled me.
