2000 Chevrolet Blazer from North America


Chevy is not built like a rock!!!


Replaced front wheel bearings 4 times.

Head gasket replaced due to leak.

Back tail gate window only button broken.

Heater core starting to fail.

Fuel pump replaced.

Had to add an attachment throttle body to help keep it idling right.

Major tune up with the fixing of throttle body, costing a total of over 1000.00 dollars.

Passenger seat handle broke off; can't recline the seat.

Fuel gauge stuck on full.

Heater fan failed twice. Dealer fixed and charged me for flushing the system.

Have replaced driver door hinges 4 times and the door still doesn't close properly!!

General Comments:

This truck has cost me more than the car is worth.

I will never buy or recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Chevy wonders why they are going down the tubes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

2000 Chevrolet Blazer from North America


Very disappointed, have always had good luck with GM in the past


My header gasket 80,000 miles has blown, just realized today. Purchased this truck Oct. of '07 from an personal owner, not a dealer. Mistake #1. Took it in for inspection. It passed. Had the oil changed while in there for that, also it was skipping so had a complete tune up done, all this 10 days after purchase.

Okay, thought things were good to go. Next complete rear brake job. One time out it will skip the nest it won't. Have had it back to garage about 6 more time because of the skipping, feels like you're riding a bucking bronco. Two times ago-put on the machine plugs 4 & 5 misfiring. He couldn't understand. Monkeyed with plug wires, back on machine running fine. Next day skipping again. Took it back told him seems to be worst when it was raining or damp. Left it there 2 days. He drove it and put back on machine all 6 plugs misfiring. Thought maybe defective distributor cap. No... He got it running good. Put some fuel injector cleaner in, said to drive and see what happens.

Picked it up last Friday at closing.. No skipping and also no heat.. I live in Fingerlakes NY and you need a heater this time of year!!! Blowing ice cold air, and temp gage going up, oh no!! Stopped and got anti-freeze filled overflow.. got heat okay. Went home. Next day. to store skipping a little.. no heat. Didn't drive yesterday.

Today went out started it.. let run few minutes checked heat. No Heat.. Pulled dip stick (had that feeling) nice milky looking oil... oh no!! Now I have this piece of _____, live on social security disablity and can't afford this big expense. So sorry I bought this vehicle. Oh yes back hatch won't open, passenger seat recline level broke off. outside mirror adjusted won't work. and no heat on the floor, just windshield and dash.. And now NO HEAT AT ALL!!!

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

2000 Chevrolet Blazer S-10 4.3L from North America


I like the car, but it will be the last Blazer I buy


I have a 2000 Chevy S-10 Blazer. I've owned the Blazer for about a year or two. These are my problems:

Bought the car with 58,000 miles.

Both front door hinges needed to be replaced on both sides, and the sensor for the auto headlights was bad.

The A/C also needed fixing, so the dealer took care of all the problems before I signed the papers.

Right after I got the Blazer, the fuel sending unit stopped working, which the dealer fixed free of charge to me.

Then around 62k miles, the intake gasket started leaking and needed to be replaced; this I fixed myself for around $100.

Around 70k-75k miles I had the transmission rebuilt; that cost me $1,800.

Around 83,000 miles I replaced the leaky heater core; that cost me $130 for the parts and 12 hours of my time to replace it; this was bad timing because the next day I was going to take it on a long trip.

Now at 88,000 miles, I have replaced both upper and lower ball joints on both the left and right side; this fix cost me around $200. Also at this mileage, I replaced the air pump, which was $130.

Other problems; my roof rack was peeling.

Last Blazer for me.

General Comments:

I love to drive the Blazer when I'm not fixing it, but lately doesn't seem like I'm driving it very much. It will be the last time I buy a Blazer, and trust me, I will look up more about the next car before I buy it.

All these problems; I had every one. Something keeps telling me that is a common problem with the Blazer.
