2000 Chevrolet Blazer 4x4 4.3 from North America


Runs OK, but the little stuff makes me want to buy something else next time


Mirror motor bad.

Power window driver side fails at times.

Left side wheel bearing.

Oxygen sensor bad.

Fuel leveling sensor bad.

Universal joint bad.

Door bushings bad.

Required complete back brake rebuild at 80000.

Passenger seat doesn't lock in place, so when accelerating or braking, hang on.

General Comments:

Engine always runs good.

Brace yourself after 80000.

Door problem is a quality issue.

I had almost all of the most common problems.

Back windshield wiper doesn't even touch the window. Keeps the air in front of the wiper dry however.

Power mirrors only work in one direction, so I have to get out of the car and push them over manually, and then use the motor to adjust.

Annoying when trying to order fast food and the window does not roll down.

Because of the door bushings, the car leaks when it rains.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The passenger seat should be required to be fixed by the NHTSA. With seatbelts, they require manufacturers to fix sometimes even in circumstances beyond the normal warranty. A seat that could eject a passenger into the dash or even through the windshield during hard braking seems like Chevy would cover that. For the back window wiper, it sounds like the wrong sized wiper was installed on there.

It's been great


Battery at 80k miles.

Tuneup req'd at 80k miles.

Rear window makes awful squeaking and has since about 30k miles.

Interior rattles are annoying and have grown since about 50k miles.

Clutch at 120k miles.

Catalytic Converter at 125k miles and now another at 165k.

General Comments:

That's all that's gone wrong with it in 160k miles. With all of the awful reviews, I figured I'd post a good one.

Except for the noises of the rear window and the interior, it's been great. I'm having problems towing my 6,000 pound enclosed trailer -- I'm burning then up, I suspect the O2 sensor and that I'm running even more rich due to the large trailer load.

Not having an automatic transmission is probably why you have avoided the most expensive repair issues.

I just purchased a 2000 Chevy Blazer LS from a local car lot. So far I am happy. I was treated with respect and kindness. I was NEVER pressured AND all my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I have also owned a 1997 Blazer LS. Regarding O2 sensors... I have had to replace quite a few and in my experiance, it seems to happen in most (if not all) makes and models. Foreign & Domestic vehicles just the same. Again, I'm speaking only of my personal adventures with vehicles. I love my Blazer and look at replacing O2 sensor (s) as part of one of the routine repairs. IT COULD BE WORSE!

General Comments:

I wish that I had found this Web site before buying this car. Many of the things listed here have gone wrong and I now worry about what else will go wrong. Many of these problems have existed for years on this Model, but Chevy has chosen not to re-engineer things like the seat handles. This attitude by GM shows why they have lost market share. I have learned my lesson.

I have a 2000 2 Door Chevy Blazer. It has been GREAT! Granted the handles on the seats come off, Chevrolet replaced these at no cost to myself, the alternator went out at 98,000 miles. Heck, after that many miles, what would anyone expect. It was only thing to go out, since I bought this in February, 2000. I've kept up the maintenance on this and feel like my Blazer IS built like a ROCK, I've taken this to some of Colorado's off road high mountain - 4 X 4 trails. Hagerman Pass, Ophir Pass, Cinnamon Pass, I could list more, but you can see my point. This vehicle took me through those mountain passes with NO PROBLEM. She still runs like a champ. No problems and I have 108,000 plus miles on her at this writing 7/25/06.
