Blazer S10 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 127,000 miles

I have had SOO many things go wrong with this vehicle. I actually cried this morning because after putting $10,000 into a car I paid $5,000 for, ANOTHER thing is going wrong. I just got a new transmission put in my car, plus new pitman arms, and some other things that I'd like to forget. A year ago this May I just got a new rear-end put in because mine crapped out. How often does that happen?? Plus my radiator tank was cracked so we had to replace that. And the guy who did it didn't crimp something right so I had to go back a couple weeks later and have him fix that. I've had this POS for about 5 years now and almost every summer we have to replace the brakes because they are horrible. My A/C went out again so that's something that I'll have to fix this summer. And now just weeks after I spent over $4,000 to get this car re-vamped and like new something else is happening. It has seemed more gutless to me lately and yesterday was the worst I've noticed. It has a huge loss in power and is having difficulty making it up slight hills. It also started jerking back and forth. Last night on my way home from work I had to pull over on the interstate because it all of a sudden starting decelerating and wouldn't go. I was lucky to have it going 55 mph then it started doing the jerking thing and it went down to 40 mph and I couldn't go so I pulled over. Then I tried to get back on the interstate (5 pm traffic on a Monday by the way) and I can't get up to speed in time so I have to pull over again. Finally I just put my hazards on and got up to 40 mph which is as fast as I could go and I got off on the next exit. I've been told by a mechanic friend that it could be my catalytic converter. I have no idea. I called the dealer this morning that has fixed me many times and I'm going in to see them tomorrow and probably get raped on another price. I am so absolutely completely sick of this vehicle I feel like someone really stuck it to me when they sold me this. We got a CarFax report on it but I don't trust those anymore. I have heard that many '95 Blazers have many problems. I would never in a million years recommend this car to anybody. And I wouldn't even have the heart to sell this to someone else. It is an absolute piece of junk and I am at the point where I am going to have a Blazer Bashing party. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come and beat the crap out of this vehicle. Thanks for letting me rant and rave...

Wow, so much to say about this Blazer. But, I'll just talk about the tranny problem here. It started out as a minor nuisance that has turned into a major problem. I bought this SUV in April of this year, 2007. When I test drove it, I had noticed that the "service engine soon" light was on, and inquired about it. The dealer (who shall, but shouldn't, remain nameless at this point) actually told me that the man who traded it said that the light went off and on all the time, and he never had it fixed because his garage never could find anything wrong. Well, I did. 5000 miles later, I have a bad tranny. I have a 3 year note on a car that I can no longer drive, and will possibly get traded tomorrow. And that's just the latest thing I've had to deal with. I have replaced a fuel line, a tire, fuel pump, a muffler, the washer fluid motor, front brakes...oh my Lord, you name it, I have replaced it. And it's a shame too, because the interior and exterior of this thing is immaculate. I have the LT model, and it has all the bells and whistles. I am sure it was a great vehicle when it was new, but it's been a grave nuisance to me. I have since heard many bad things about these S10 motors, and I just wish I had known it before hand. I was a little hasty buying it, and in no way do I blame Chevy/GM. On the other hand, I have a 1999 S10 ZR2 that has been very good to me.
