2000 Chevrolet Blazer from North America


Consumer Reports lists this is a very expensive vehicle to own and I definitely agree


-3 sets of wheel bearings (1 set under warranty from bearing manufacturer.)

-ABS indicator malfunction (in hub, so that needed to be replaced)

-front joints replaced

-brake light problem (replaced hazard warning assembly.

-door hinges need constant greasing

-driver door does not sit correctly

-transmission replaced

-coolant leak (gaskets and lines replaced)

General Comments:

We purchased our 2000 Chevy Blazer off the lot and brand new. Since we've had this vehicle, we have had over $6,100.00 in repairs. I am the primary driver and do not "beat" my vehicle. My primary use for vehicle is to and from work (highway miles). The vehicle is properly maintained.

Problems began shortly after the warranty. They have included the following:

- 3 sets of wheel bearings. (one warranty)

- ABS indicator malfuncation (hub replaced)

- front joints replaced

- brake light problem (hazard assembly replaced.)

- door hinges need constant greasing

- driver door does not sit correctly

- transmission replaced

- coolant leak (gaskets and lines replaced).

This has been a very expensive car to own. I feel that based on the number of similar problems that many individuals are experiencing there are some definite flaws the manufacturer should be taking care of!

My past 4WD vehicle was a Rodeo. The only problem I had to deal with in that vehicle was a transmission. I know that I will not be purchasing another Blazer. Chevy has definitely lost me as a customer.

I am the owner of a 2000 Blazer and I am experiencing a lot of the same issues. This Friday I am having the front hub assembly replaced. My door needs greased... I had the hazard switch replaced (under recall)... Seems to me that Chevy definitely has an issue here that they should be resolving for us!

I just bought a 2000 Blazer from a friend and I also am hearing a grinding noise. I shift it into four wheel drive and it stops, but when I shift it back into 2 hi, it starts grinding again. I'm the third owner of this Blazer and my friend bought it from a friend of hers. Both previous owners were happy with the vehicle. I'm just frustrated trying to find out what the grinding problem is and getting it fixed. I would definitely buy a Chevy again (this is my second Chevy but my first Blazer), but I don't know if I would get another Blazer. I'll just wait a while and see how it does after I get it worked on.

I love it, but I hate it


At 36,200 miles my engine belt needed to be replaced.

All of my Engine cooling lines needed to be replaced.

I had a antifreeze leak and my gasket and intake manifold was replaced.

I had a serious oil leak at my transfer case and my rear shaft had to be replaced because of it.

At 46,600 miles I went to have my oil changed and the company I went to told me that all of the stuff I had done at 36,000 miles needed to be done again.

General Comments:

It is a good thing I have the GMPP Majorguard or it would have put a $1,000 dollar whole in my pocket.

I'm a Chevy and GM type of person, but will never buy from Lust Chevrolet Buick in Aberdeen, SD again.

With the engine cooling lines happening to most Blazer Owners there needs to be a recall on them.

2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America


Comfortable, but terrible quality


In Aug of 2003 I had both front hub and Bearing assemblies changed. $650.00 each.

June 2004 had all four ball joints replaced, I think about 65000 miles $800.00 at Pepboys.

Currently the Blazer is over at AAMCO having the transmission fixed. 70188 miles exactly, and this blazer has never towed anything. $2274.00.

Things still broken:

The ABS fires at random times when you press the brake at slow speeds, so I pulled the fuse to stop it. I have been told it could be extremely expensive to fix.

The rear hatch does not open.

The hood release is broken.

All four door fall a bit when opened. It has not effected performance yet, but the drivers door falls about and 1.5 inches when open. I am worried that it will soon be difficult to close. Mechanic said he would have to replace the hinges at a couple of hundred a door.

I am going to trade this vehicle in when I get it back from AAMCO.

I do not recommend ever buying a Chevy Blazer. I wish I had done more research before hand.

General Comments:

I am 6'3" and 210 pounds. The vehicle is very comfortable for me, but the build quality is just too poor.

Overall I loved the handling and driving.

It is just too expensive to keep with all of it problems.
