2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS V6 from North America


I love my car, but don't think it's safe!


I have had the seat handles break off 20,000miles.

The radiator replaced 20,000miles.

Now I am having front end problems at 60,000 miles.

I brought the car in to have the front end checked for vibrations and wobbling. The dealership informed me that I needed to have the ball joints replaced and with the ball joints going bad I also needed shocks and a front end allignment. This racked up a bill of $783.00. I then called around to other repair shops and discovered that it is very common in Chevy Blazers to have this problem, but that Chevy hasn't made it a recall.

General Comments:

I love many Chevy vehicles. I am very dissappointed that Chevy isn't recognizing this as a problem with the ball joints.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 2000 blazer and many problems.

For starter the power locks don't work. The power windows quit on me also. And my rear hatch doesn't even open. And the wind shield wiper in the rear doesn't even touch the window when you turn it on.

General Comments:

Like a lemon.

General Comments:

This truck has been nothing but a huge headache since I have bought it. It seems that every few thousand miles something else gives out and is several hundred dollars to repair. It is unacceptable that a manufacturer is able to put such a piece of junk on the market. This vehicle has been meticulously maintained and has not been abused! I know for sure that this is the last Chevy I will ever own!!!

Wow that sucks for you. I have had good luck with mine. 90k at the moment and only have replaced idler arm, and lower ball joints, brakes all arround.. my fuel pump is getting weak, but I'm nearing 100k that's to be expected.

My Blazer is a good runner. Not too many problems, beat up on it a lot, so damage and repairs are minor.

Upper and lower ball joints, tie rods, idler arm, but then again I do have 120k on mine. Repairs are expected; nothing lasts forever.

I have had an 88 Blazer 3 years and was really looking into getting a ZR2. I have done every bit of maintenance to my vehicle (grew in a family of mechanics). As far as brakes calipers and tires, you can never count that as a flaw to a vehicle. Factory brakes and tire are junk unless it is like a BMW or Mercedes, which is why they are 50000 dollar cars off the lot. But those are things that you would have to replace with any car or truck. I want to know about major problems such as valves, lifters, compression, tranny, transfer case, and rearend. If any one has any thing along those lines, that would be great.

A nightmare!!


Car was picked up with 8 miles. in Dec 1999, noticed two small dents visible when light hit after pick up.

Transmission fluid leak less than 100 miles in Jan 2000.

Within a few months, drivers side door doesn't seal properly, rain and snow get in.

During the first year, both seat adjustment levers broke off (two door).

Repaired a tire and replaced serpentine belt in June 2000 (22771 miles).

Paint has started to peel and rust from the luggage rack and spare tire arm.

Aug 2003 replaced pads, rotors etc. at 24401 miles. Mechanic advised wheel bearing was bad.

Aug 2003 24554mi-dealer replaced left front wheel bearing at no charge 'one time only'. Warranty had expired in Dec 2003. Replaced stop lamps/hazard lamps at this time per recall.

Squeal in left front tire has been present since brake work and bearing work, nobody can find the problem.

Alternator was replaced in Apr 04 28842 miles.

Blazer shakes at speed above 55 mph. Mechanic replaced pitman arm and idler arm in May 04...it still shakes.

One of the tires developed a bulge and mechanic surmised that because it was on the front it made the shake worse and rotated tires... it still shakes.

Today, 06jul04, the driver's side window is stuck in the closed position. Another $500 job at 31000 miles, what's next???

General Comments:

I didn't expect to have this many problems with a new car.

I was driving an 88 celebrity until 1999 and I'm starting to experience the same problems I was then, and this one isn't even paid for yet.

I have been a loyal chevy owner, after this one I'm not so sure.
