The gas gauge in my car was accurate, and suddenly, there were problems. This is annoying not knowing how much gas is in your tank. I do keep it filled, but still...I am going to see about having it repaired, but we have spend over $1,000 on repairs last year. It's too much of a headache to list those now. I do know that one repairman told me I needed a new Idler arm when I did NOT. Thank God I had a second opinion from an honest person.

I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER CHEVY VEHICLE AGAIN!!! Somehow thousands of people have experienced the same troubles with this floating gas gauge and having to count their miles before running out of gas but still NO recall. b/s.

I think there should be a recall when they know the problem has always been there. Why should the buyer pay when it's an ongoing problem???

Gas gauge bounces all over the place, have to use the odometer to tell how much I have left. Ususally just fill it up and after 200 miles fill it back up again. This is such a pain in the ass. I am about to put about 10 more things on here about this piece of sh*t car. I have never had such a horrible experience with a car. I will never buy another GM product again... let them go bankrupt... the rest of us won't have to deal with their crappy products anymore. It should be illegal to sell such poorly built cars.

The fuel gauge is accurate for the first 3/4 tank. During the last quarter tank, the fuel gauge is completely inaccurate. It goes up to full then below empty then to half, and it like never stops moving until its nearly running on fumes.

IT'S MY WIFE'S CAR & THE GAS GAUGE IS NOT WORKING. IT ALWAYS READS 1/2 TANK!!! TIME TO TRADE IN FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN CHEVY/GM. ALSO, THE REAR WINDOW OPENER ONLY WORKS SPORADICALLY. JUST ANOTHER REASON NOT TO BUY CHEVY/GM!

When I took my car in to have a standard tune up, I asked the repair guys to check

on this for me. They said it was a "known problem by Chevy" with the float in the

fuel tank. It would cost $1300 to have it fixed... What the HE#)$*#! I could replace

the entire tank for 1/3 of that, including labor!

I am a single mother of two with ADD. Remembering to hit the reset button every time I fill up is a challenge. I am irritated to see this is a common occurrence and there has been no recall. Besides that, resetting the trip o meter just reminds me that I have a gas guzzler.

If Chevy wants to stay in business, they better come up with a solution, quick! because I'm getting tired of all this bull with car and SUV's, if these dealers wants us to pay for theses out of this world prices, they better get their crap together, because I'm sick of it, tired of all the break down!

This problem with the gas gauge started not too long ago. My husband and I share the car so if one of us forget to reset the trip odometer we are in trouble cause we never know how much gas we have. Also we just had a baby and it gets very cold in Michigan. This is very upsetting. I love my blazer but I am running into lots of problems

I'm not sure what they did to fix this one. A week after i purchased the vehicle I noticed that the gas needle was bouncing all over the place. This was covered under warranty.

Blazer LS 4,3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,300 miles

I worked as a GM technician for over two decades. Erratic gas gages is not a new thing with GM. In fact this has been a constant "DRIP" in many of GM models but somehow more pronounced in Chevrolet products. As a technician I could never figured out why hasn't GM corrected this problem. The only reasoning that makes sense is that GM dealerships have a 400% plus mark up in their parts. So it is convenient for GM Dealerships not to fix this problem (They know exists and has existed for YEARS). They want to make sure you spend your money in their parts department. Buy your parts elsewhere but the dealership as much as they are not dealer item. The records speak for themselves. The average in tank sending unit breaks down at aprox. 50,000 miles. Conveniently that is when your warranty expires.

THIS IS SUCH A PAIN, THE GAS GAUGE DOESNT WORK. ERRATICALLY MOVES AROUND, I WAS USING THE TRIP METER TO GUESS HOW MUCH FUEL WAS IN THE BLAZER UNTIL THAT STOPPED WORKING TOO. NOW NOT ONLY DO I NOT KNOW HOW MUCH GAS I HAVE, I DONT KNOW HOW MANY MILES ARE ON MY VEHICLE

Add one more gas gauge complaint. I fill the tank then use the trip meter. When I've driven 200 miles I fill it again. At one time I was considering trading in on a Trailblazer but I don't think my next vehicle will be a Chevy. No, definitely will not be a Chevy!
