2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS from North America


Love the car, but the construction is shoddy


I have had my 2000 Blazer LS since 2000. The car runs well and didn't have any issues (other than the speakers rattling) until about 45,000 miles.

At ~40,000/45,000 miles:

-the luggage rack paint started to peel

-the front brake pads needed to be replaced.

At ~50,000 miles:

- the driver's side door started to sag and the rubber lining came loose

- the driver's side seat adjuster broke

- the covers for the mirrors on the sunshade both broke.

Now at ~76,000 miles:

- the fuel sensor needs to be replaced ($530)

- the brakes needs to all be replaced ($900)

- need a brake flush ($120)

- the power steering pump has a leak ($530)

- new hub bearings ($900)

Let me not forget the keyless entry alarm ($130 for ONE) or the power windows that may or may not be.

76,000 miles in 8 years is not very heavy driving and I kept the car on its maintenance schedule. So a lot of these things seem like just poor construction. I was hoping to keep the car for at least one more year, but now I don't know if it is worth do all the repairs.

General Comments:

Blazer runs well and gets pretty good highway gas mileage (in the city forget about it)

Car seems to start nickle and diming you after 50,000 miles.

Great family vehicle


I bought the car used with high miles.

I have heard the noise coming from the front end, and didn't know what it was.

The only problem I have had so far was the car wouldn't start for no apparent reason. The battery was charged. Just wouldn't start. Found out it was a relay switch that was loose or something. Wiggled it around and everything came on and the car started.

Other than that, a great vehicle.

I love my truck, I just wish things would quit breaking!


My transmission blew at 160,000km.

My encoder motor for the 4X4 went at 120,000Km, which is an $800.00 dealership fix.

My heater core went at 100,000, which is $1000.00 fix.

My fuel gauge quit working around 110,000km.

Everyone and their brother has run into it! Every part of the body is new except for the front. None were my fault by the way.

General Comments:

This vehicle is very comfortable to drive and efficient on gas for an SUV.

Not sure what to think of it


The driver side door has started to squeak.

The gas gauge fluctuates.

It eats a lot of gas.

Now the Service 4wd light has come on. I had all the 4wd fluids filled and checked, but the light is still on.

General Comments:

Does any one have an idea on how to get this light to shut off?????

10 out of 10 on quality and performance!


The rear window wiper doesn't work.

General Comments:

It handles great and has really good acceleration and gas mileage.

It has every stock power option available.

This truck is way better than my Lincoln Continental.

I think all the blazer haters should shut up, because they didn't take care of their blazer right or they bought theirs from someone who didn't take care of it.

I ran a Carfax report on mine before I bought it and there were 4 previous owners who reported no problems with it at all. All the regular-scheduled maintenance was done on time and efficiently.

I purchased my Blazer used; loved the size, power, and all the toys, but here is what I have had to do or replace on my Blazer.

At 51,000 the rear end blew up; not like you would think, a piece of metal shot out of the cover. Called the dealer where I purchased it out of warranty. Called Chevy normal use and out of warranty.

At 43,500 gas gauge, drivers side window motor, and seat handle broke off all within a few weeks of each other.

At 53,000 the rear window wiper quit.

At 83,000 a noise from the drivers side. Still working to find out what could be wrong.

Oh I almost forgot, at 74,000 the drivers side door fell and broke the latch off. Same year the 4 wheel drive went out.

General Comments:

While I have done most of the work myself, it makes me angry that a company can make a piece of %*#T can still sleep well at night. I have spent a couple thousand on this truck.
