Summary:

Belongs in a junk yard

Faults:

Let me first say I have had Chevy's all my life, new used and abused ones. I still have a 1966 Chevy in the family garage. But I will tell you this, I will NEVER buy a Chevy again. The newer ones are pure trouble. Wheel bearings, fuel gauge bad, handles on seats broke off. Now a turn signal relay is bad. Also intake manifold gasket had to be replaced for 600.00 dollars. And the list goes on and on.

The local garage told me if it were not for Chevy's, he would not have any work. Also, they put his son through college.

I forgot, the automatic light sensor on the dash must be bad; at night the lights flick off very fast, then back on. But I will say this; the gas MPG is great and it's a runner, and if you keep good winter tires on it, she always gets me over the river and through the snow to grandma's house.

Next time I am going to buy a HONDA.

General Comments:

Like I said, the old Chevy's quick and good MPG. Also, with the right tires, she always goes, but I just don't like the thought that as I drive it, I keep wondering what will go wrong next.

I don't blame you about GM products, they do suck. I always drove GM products. I had a 1999 Chevy Blazer, biggest POS on the road. I traded it for a 2009 Ford Explorer, best car I have ever owned. I now have a Ford Edge. I will never buy GM again. I am now a Ford Lover!!

Don't buy the Honda!!

Chevrolet vehicles have improved a lot in recent years. The Equinox and Traverse are HUGE improvements over the Blazer. I wouldn't touch one of the newer Fords with a 39 1/2 foot pole due to that awful My Ford Touch system.

I would probably go with a Honda.

Summary:

Money pit

Faults:

What hasn't gone wrong with this car?

The fuel pump left me stranded.

Fuel injectors needed to be replaced.

Leaking lower intake manifold gasket.

Various vacuum leaks.

3rd set of ball joints are toast.

2 alternators while I've owned it.

The thing is a vertical oil filter; I pour oil in, and it just comes right out of the bottom. Leaking oil from the front and rear main seals, timing chain cover, oil pan gasket, and valve cover gaskets.

Both the front axle seals are leaking.

Both front wheel bearings needed replacing.

Interior is absolute crap, it's falling apart.

General Comments:

Even when this car is running, it's way underpowered for the size of the engine, and the mileage is comparable to a V8, yet lacks the power.

My 1992 4Runner had over 300,000 kms, and nowhere near the issues this Blazer has had. There's a reason GM nearly collapsed, their products are garbage.

Summary:

Not bad

Faults:

The day I got the car, I had to replace the radiator.

This was my mom's car before. She had work done to the head gaskets.

She also had problems with the power steering and the fuel pump, but she got it fixed.

The rear window wipers don't work.

When the car first starts, it will not accelerate, but it does after a minute of driving. I don't know much about cars, but I think it has something to do with the fuel pump.

General Comments:

My mom has owned this car for about 8 years, and she took very good care of it.

All problems were fixed immediately, and it received regular maintenance. So the car is in very good shape; even the paint is still near perfect.

The power is decent, and it's pretty good for towing smaller things like our pop up camper.

It's a good looking little truck.

However I hate the steering; the wheel is difficult to turn, and I have to straighten it out myself.

It doesn't handle very well, it's a chore to drive, and I constantly have to re-adjust the wheel to keep the car straight.

Also, I constantly have to be on the gas to keep it up to speed.

I feel just about every bump in the road; it's not smooth at all.

It is terrible on gas; even worse than my Caprice.

The seats are not comfortable, and the back seat isn't very spacious.

The speakers suck.

All in all, it's not a bad vehicle though. But compared to my first car (an '86 Caprice) it sucks.

The only reason I bought the Blazer is because some stupid girl smashed every single one of my windows, and I needed four new tires and I didn't have the money to replace them. And my mom gave me the Blazer for basically nothing.

There is no doubt that my next car will be a Caprice. I love those cars to death.

Try injecting grease into the lower and upper ball joints (if it has uppers) and outer tie rod ends. It may end your steering blues. It also sounds like your engine needs a basic tune up.

I have a 2000 Blazer ZR2 and a 2005 Blazer 4x4 LS, and have had zero problems with either of them. I bought the 2000 used and the 2005 new. These cars must be lubed and oiled regularly per the manufacturer's recommendation. The drive train is incredible, the ride, when the manufacturer's tire pressure is adhered to, is very good. No complaints from me. I would buy another, if it was a one owner, in a minute.
