Summary:

I would buy another one any day!

Faults:

The truck has held up amazing for the tremendous amount of beating I have put on it.

I have ran over trees just because it had the power to.

The only problems I have had are the power mirror on the driver side only rotates up and down, and the lever to tilt my seat back has broke off.

General Comments:

This truck handles amazing on the road and even better off-road.

The truck hasn't failed me once and has done everything I have asked it to better than I could have hoped.

The cabin is very comfortable and roomy.

The truck looks great, even stock.

I don't get all these bad comments about it, all I can think is they didn't look around and find a good buy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

I should have just thrown $30,000 out the window!

Faults:

Gosh, I really don't know where to start.

I think the first thing was the three brake light switches. Two were replaced under warranty. Paid $192.00 for the third. Two weeks later got a recall letter on the part and Chevy would only reimburse $150.00 of the cost. Said that if a Chevy dealer replaced it, it would have only been $150.00. I tried to get an appointment and they couldn't get me in.

We have had the wheel bearings replaced three time on the front and two on the back.

Brakes and rotors replaced twice all around.

Gas gauge stayed on full for two years. Stopped after having fuel pump replaced.

Radiator replaced.

Tires replaced four times.

Headlights have gone out for long periods of times. No one can find out what's wrong. Never know when they're going to go out. Had to put fog lights on for when they go out.

Both front seat levers have broken off and the whole rod broke, so it would cost $150.00 each to replace.

Air conditioner has never worked properly. Does not blow cold air when setting in traffic. Replaced thermostat, compressor, had it drained and refilled still doesn't work.

Rear window wash and wiper out. Front wipers broke off and replaced.

Engine light stays on and can't find anything wrong. Started losing power and it's the catalyic converter.

General Comments:

Vehicle is comfortable and attractive, but the mechanically it is a nightmare. We have spent about $8000.00 in repairs. Needless to say we just bought a 2007 Ford Mustang. Never another Chevy or GM vehicle for me. You think this might be why GM is about to lose the top spot as manufacturer to Toyota?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer. I have had to replace the front ball joints 3 times. I have replaced the tire rods, and now I was told that there is a leak around the intake manifold, and the antifreeze is leaking. I have replaced the thermostat twice, the fuel pump, and a new water pump. Is there any recourse?

I've got the 1999 Blazer 4x4, 4.3 L with 48,000 miles and will never own another GM product.

Recently had the right front wheel bearing replaced (wheel bearings should last for over 100,000 miles).

Bought the vehicle new, and from day 1 it pulled to the right -- wheel realignment didn't help.

Now have antifreeze leaks as well as antifreeze leaking into the engine oil --- not good! (think Dex-cool folks... GM put Dex-cool in it's vehicles before they had seals and gaskets strong enough to withstand the corrosive nature of this new GM antifreeze).

Am getting rid of this $30,000 lemon before all of the other problems mentioned on this website start kicking in.

Vehicle reliability and quality control are lost qualities in the American auto industry --- will go foreign import for my next vehicle. Incidentally, I had a 1984 Blazer S-10 and got over 100,000 miles on it with no issues... not the case anymore.

I have a 2000 Blazer with 130,000 miles. The rear brake shoes were never replaced until 95,000 miles when they went metal to metal. Then it was gaskets, coolant flush, new alternator. It soon needed a new Catalytic converter and new exhaust. In all, over 10 years of ownership, I've spent about $2000 in repairs since the day I bought it. The engine light has been on for 2 years, and it needs new rear shocks. The thing just keeps running, and it'll be on the road until it costs more to repair than to buy a new car. New cars are just too dang expensive, and insurance is out of this world; why settle for less and pay more? The Blazer is good for me.

Kinda funny, Chevy never made a Blazer in 'LX' trim...
