2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America


I'd buy another and another and another


So far I have had no problems with my new, used blazer. A black 2000 LS 4x4 with 96,600 miles, but strong as new out of the box. This is now my 6th blazer in a row and all, but for my last one, have been build like a rock. I go through a blazer about every two years for work purposes. These trucks take the daily torture I put them through. A lot of in town driving, start stopping, idle for an hour, etc. People that complain about issues with a blazer are ones that don't take the time to follow a normal maintenance schedule. If you grease all fittings at each oil change, change oil at least at every 4000 miles, and have a trusted mechanic at either a Chevy dealership or at a local mom and pop check the truck on a regular basis, meaning every 6,000 miles (cost you maybe 60 dollars) you shouldn't have any problems or surprises.

General Comments:

I have owned the following, 1996 4 door Jimmy, 2001 2 door Blazer, 1999 4 door Blazer, 2002 4 door Trailblazer, 1996 4 door Blazer and now just bought a 2000 4 door Blazer, all of which were 4x4's. Every vehicle got put through a minimum of 70,000 miles over 2 years with nothing more than simple oil changes, tire rotations, etc. The only one that gave me problems was the 1996 Blazer, but I believe it was a hurt car that was masked to look good now that I see the extent of her mechanical damage. She has an unheard of problem of the 4.3, her lower timing gear ate the engine.

Buy Chevy, they make a heck of a truck. I am self employed in the car business field, I see many other manufacturers as junk long before a GM product. To those that say they will go buy foreign, go buy foreign, you think you got sticker shock on a GM service bill, wait till you see theirs, 3 times the price.

I have a 2000 LS 4x4 loaded and it off roads like a bulldozer. Only complaints are the gas gauge stopped working and it is $600 + dollars to fix. Other than that, have had no problems now at 135000 miles. And I change oil every 4000 miles. 2000 Blazers Rock. N.C.

I have had my 2000 Chevy Blazer for going on 8 years now. Other than minor tune ups and the general tires and upkeep, this vehicle has been extremely reliable. 147,000 miles so far.

Drivers side seat recliner latch did break, but easily fixable.

General Comments:

I will never buy a Blazer or GM again.

They don't stick behind their products

This is a problem with pretty much all blazers, according to the Transmission guy.

I just bought a new 2004 Nissan Xterra.

My transmission went out on my 2001 Blazer. I was told it was the sun gear. I had lost 2,4 and reverse gears. I bought a new gear called the "beast" and replaced the defective part with it. All together it cost me less than a $150 and one weekend worth of time. The Blazer is still a good vehicle for me:)

Ready to blaze this Blazer


I have had so many problems with this lemon, but the worst have to be replacing an engine and now both front wheel bearings have to be replaced. It has taken almost 5 months to figure out the problem. Now the part, front wheel bearing hub assembly, note: 2WD is almost impossible to find.

While searching the web for the part I found a site with a message board where several Blazer owners complained about the sound from the bearings and how hard it is to locate the part.

Chevy Blazers are definitely a waste of money. I will never buy another Chevy or advise anyone to purchase one, unless they don't mind spending more money than the vehicle is worth.

General Comments:

The money I have spent on this SUV, I could have put a nice down payment on something really great and any problems would still be under warranty.

You got 130,000 miles of service! Seems like you got your money's worth. By the way, wheel bearings for this vehicle are available at at nearly all auto parts stores.
