I too own a 1999 chevy blazer, at 80000 miles the front hub assembly went out, then the rear wheel seal, the door hinge on the drivers side, water pump, has a oil leak, finally the fuel gauge is not working. Want to dump it asap.

1999 Blazer here. I traded down for this vehicle. Boy did I trade down. Gas gauge out, CD player took a dump, replaced breaks, rotars twice in two months, still screeching almost to embarrassment. Now the Heater Coil is out and my vehicle smells like burnt chicken!! Another few problems, the driver's side power seat only works when it wants to. The passenger side seat no longer reclines, and has to be locked in all the way back. Both door panels are loose. My day time running lights stopped working and had to be turned on manually, but now they are back working again. I will never own another Chevy Blazer. I am going to Jeep also.

I own a 2001 Chevy Blazer. The idle arm and ball joint just went out at 87,000. Guess that's not an uncommon problem, with any of the year models. Got quoted a price of about $700 to replace the two parts.

I also own a 99 Blazer LT. I purchased it leaving college with an extended warranty. Since then, ball joints, heating core, alarm, oil coolant lines, and alternator have all been replaced. I got another oil change today, and the same problem with the oil coolant lines happened again. The pins in the driver side door are shot, the moonroof gets stuck, and the rear wiper motor is out. The worst part, I got a new car and this is my wife's car. How many more things are going to happen to this car? Never own a chevy again. I am gonna hear it about this one.

I recently purchased a 1999 Blazer used. I think I go one of the above. Ball joints, wheel hubs, gas gauge don't work now, went through two fuel pumps and it's still on blocks. Had to have an engine replaced at 90,000, both front seats reclining handles are broken, driver's door hinges are shot. I'm afraid to put the key in the ignition anymore.

HI I have a 1999 Blazer LS... And most things that went wrong with it are things that do. But the thing I hate is my Service soon light is always going on. I take it to get checked and most of the time there is not a thing wrong. It drives me nut. So I put tape over it. I get my Blazer serviced every 3 to 4,000 miles. Even with the thing I hate about it, I will never sell it. I guess I got a good one of the lot that was made.

I've read all of the other comments on this page and I feel that I must add. I have a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS. No, it's not a 4x4. And I do not understand what is wrong with the rest of yours, but mine has over 100,000 miles on it and the only thing I need to repair was the battery and alternator, spark plugs and wires. And with a vehicle with that many miles on it is just normal maintance. Other than that, my Blazer has never given me a problem. I wanted to leave a comment to let everyone know that 1: you may not be treating you vehicle the proper way. They are not indestructable and they are not cheap to fix. And 2: please, do not insult the American automobile. There are thousands and thousands of Americans like you and me putting hundreds of man-hours to make the vehicles that you see on the road every day. And they work hard doing it. Thank you for your time.

I to own a 1999 Chevy Blazer, since I have owned it I have replaced the following items, Cd player, ball joint both sidees, idle arm, door pins twice transmission filter 3 times, in the first year. The second year I replaced the fuel filter system, wheel hubs, twice. The ball joints again. I lose heat every other week. I have a strange ticking coming out of the dash board, if I hit the brakes it stops. now I have a leak some wear between the bell housing and engine. I always wanted a chevy blazer, I like the style and the fact that it was a Chevy. I can say now it is really disappointing. I will never buy another again.

Well, yet again, I have came back to this website to read any other comments and/or complaints about their Chevy Blazers. And I must say, I really think that the people who have owned it before you, must have treated it like dirt. I still own the same Blazer that I have bought 4 years ago. Now remind it is a 1999, but it was made in September of 1998, I am the third owner of the vehicle and the miles are still climbing, and I have yet to have any other problems with it. Again, the only thing I have had wrong with it are; spark plugs and wires, alternator and battery, rear wiper motor (they do tend to go bad), and a clogged heater core. And this thing is 9 years old and has 100,986 miles on it. After I have read the previous comment, I do have some advice for you, have your computer checked out. The computer in your Blazer may be bad. Maybe that's why your security system is failing the fuel pump. That is the only thing that I can think of that may be wrong. It just sounds funny that the security system is doing that to the fuel pump. Oh! And I also wanted to state a fact about ball joints, they will also go bad if not taken care of properly. If they feel like they need greased, the by all means, grease them up, otherwise they will fail on you.
