Summary:

Sadly disappointed

Faults:

I too have fallen victim to the "like a Rock" promotion. The vehicle seemed as if it had a tire out of balance when I purchased it used at 38,000 miles. It turned out to be that both front wheel bearings were shot.

In addition, I had to replace the upper ball-joints, alternator, rear differential cover, rear brake calipers, intake manifold gasket, rear axle seal, front differential seal and the emergency brake line all before 52,000 miles. Since then numerous other components have failed.

This among others is the reason GM is in need of a government bailout.

General Comments:

The Blazer looks nice. It has sufficient power, however the cons out-way any pros.

Summary:

Satisfying

Faults:

2000 Blazer problems:

Crazy about those seat recline levers, they both broke (I have the 2 door model) within a week of each other, I'm stuck in a reclined position on the driver side, vise grips worked for a bit but that's out now.

Just had to replace fuel pump. Oh to all of you who are experiencing the fuel gage jumping or malfunctioning, it's because your fuel pump is going, when I replaced it the gage worked fine (got gouged on the repair though, 1,050$)

Diagnostic check revealed idler arm needs replacement, haven't done that yet.

Went through a lot of tires, probably due to an alignment problem (in all fairness I rear ended someone).

Currently leaking oil (@ 135,000 miles).

General Comments:

Purchased my 2000 Blazer in 02' with 50,000 miles on it.

I hadn't had any expensive repairs (& even rear ended someone) til recently getting gouged for $1050 to replace the fuel pump (didn't shop around 1st). While there they told me I should replace the idler arm.

To all who are experiencing gas gauge problems: It's your fuel pump about to go on you, once they replaced the fuel pump my gas gauge worked fine, when before it used to jump around, so if that's happening to you, get ready to replace the fuel pump.

Other than that it's been a joy to drive (I've beaten cars off the line at stoplights) & if you buy parts from junkyards or on eBay, then just have the labor done, you shouldn't have to spend all that much to keep this vehicle up.. I've taken it from Florida to NY & back twice & no problems. I've had the other small things like the seat levers breaking & door leaking rain in, & the paint on the luggage racks peeling, but that doesn't bother me.

Summary:

Sucks

Faults:

I had 85.000 miles and my transmission reverse went on this truck.

Front ball joints were changed twice.

Transmission switch that shifts from high low went. And the dealer could not even tell me that.

General Comments:

I had 85.000 miles and my transmission reverse went on this truck, and I was told by Chevy dealers that the truck is built tough. I don't think so. For a transmission's reverse to go, that's sad. I will never buy a Chevy again!!!

Summary:

Wonderful vehicle, love it and will own another

Faults:

Nothing but maintenance. Tires, brakes, oil changes.

General Comments:

Wonderful vehicle. They all are if taken care of.

People complain about vehicles, but they are the ones who probably go 10000 miles on an oil change.

Love driving my Blazer, very sporty for an SUV. Not too bulky, but will go through some crap if I want it to. Has never let me down, and I will own another some day.
