2001 Chevrolet Blazer ZX 2 4.3 V6 from North America
For what we paid for this truck, major components such as a transmission, should have held up longer
Fuel pump had to be replaced at 53,000 miles.
Transmission had to be replaced at 55,000 miles.
We are very disappointed that this very expensive vehicle has had to have such expensive repairs with only 55,000 miles on it.
We are getting the "impression" from the service department that this is not the first transmission that they have replaced in this type of vehicle with so few miles on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My transmission went out at 54000 miles, too. It seems to be very common with these trucks.
I have not been as happy with this truck as I have been with my 92 blazer (which is still happily running on the original transmission).

I just found out this morning that my transmission needs overhauled... only 57,000 miles on my 2001 Blazer LS. HELP!
Is there any recourse from Chevy or GM that I can look for?

My transmission went out at 75,000 miles, 3 weeks after I bought it!

I bought my Blazer with 56,000 miles and was thrilled to find such a well taken care of truck with low miles (2001). However, at 58,000 miles the transmission went out. I was so disappointed because I was already pushing my budget with a car payment. Seems that transmission is an issue.
Aside from the transmission, and the never-ending loud engine noise, I actually really like my little Blazer. It is very comfortable to ride in... a pleasure for me after years in a miserable low riding compact. I can see why some people become big Blazer fans.
