My father just bought a 2000 Blazer ZR2, and he loves it. It runs great and is really reliable. I am sure not everyone has the same experience as me, but if it makes my dad happy then I am sold on it. Jarod.

Most recent year of ownership2005
Engine and transmission Automatic
Distance when acquired40000 miles
Previous carChevrolet Century Buick

Summary:

The blazer has been my worst choice ever.

Faults:

Many things have gone bad with this SUV.

Within the first week, I had to take it back to the dealer because the front joints were bad.

After 4 months, my transmission blew out and I had it replaced.

Shortly after, my brake lights malfunctioned. Then after a couple of months it happened again after I had already fixed it.

The recliner levels broke on the both the driver and passengers side.

After a year I had to replace the front bearings.

The gas gage also went out.

The transmission broke down again after I had it fixed a 1 year 1/2 ago!

General Comments:

This car was my college graduation gift. But more than a gift it has become my nightmare.

My first choice was the Toyota Corolla sport, and I ended up choosing the Blazer over the Corolla. This has been my worst mistake ever.

I can't complain about how comfortable it is to drive the blazer when it does work. But this car has put a dent in my pocket ever since I got it.

Summary:

Aggressive, sharp, and eye catching

Faults:

Brakes all around at 85,000.

Water pump at 80,000.

General Comments:

I don't like the rear tire carrier. Combined with the rear buckets and the privacy tint, it is impossible to see behind you.

Vehicle handles great on and off road.

Very aggressive looking vehicle.

Decent mileage for having 31 inch tires.

Comfortable seating, easy to drive.

I would buy another in a heartbeat. Only change I would encourage is to put better brakes on the ZR2 model.

Previous carChevrolet Cavalier

Summary:

This Blazer is burning up my wallet!

Faults:

Don't get burned by the Blazer!

Since buying the Blazer, it has needed to have many repairs. Most of the repairs were required after the 3 year/36,000 mile warranty expired.

Repairs under warranty: Driver's side window would grind when opening and closing. This was repaired by the dealership twice. It is now malfunctioning it again.

Since expiration of warranty: I replaced the pitman and idler arms, ball joints, and replaced the fuel pump.

Current repairs needed at 70,000 miles: intake manifold gasket leaking, security system is failing (light in on intermittently and the Blazer sometimes will not start because of it. The check engine light also comes on intermittently. The Blazer needs a new alternator and oil cooling lines. The lever to recline the passenger seat snapped off, and the hinge on the driver's side door is broken. The CD player burned out at about 40,000 miles.

I really liked the Blazer when I first bought it. But now, I realize my 1991 Cavalier was much more reliable and less expensive to fix!

General Comments:

Comfortable and roomy.

Expensive repairs!

Summary:

Great!

Faults:

Not Much, I agree with some of the other reviews. If you take care of your Blazer It will take of you. Most people complain about regular maintenance issues. My only problems were very minor. First the real window latch squeaks. This is from wear on the latch bar. If your "window squeaks" put some tape around the latch bar to reduce friction. Problem solved. Two I replaced the battery. Again normal wear. Other than that I have not seen a problem arise.

General Comments:

I bought this SUV with 53,000 miles. I put another 40,000 miles on it in a year and a half. I tow a 4000 pound Boat and a Jet Ski occasionally, I commute through city traffic every day, and I've taken the Blazer off-road quite a few times. I also maintain my vehicle. Guess What? No problems, I love this truck and I am very pleased with my purchase.
