1996 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

I have had to change the oil coolant lines on my 1996 S-10 Blazer 5 times since I have owned the auto. I purcheased it in 1998. It was still under warranty then, and the first time they did the work free of charge. Since then, every 12-18 months I find oil dripping in my garage, and I am told it is these lines. I have been told by 3 different mechanics that these vehicles are notorious for this problem. Can't anything be done!!

I have 2 recalls and I would need to pay for my own transportation to and from the dealership... I don't think this is fair as I didn't ask for the 2 recalls... no safety defect mentioned.

This car was purchased on 10/25/97. Since then, the weatherstripping on three doors has had to be replaced three different times. Each time the weatherstripping failed, the car leaked flooding the floorboards. As a result, the carpet has had to be replaced twice. The first incident was 12/02/97, the second 1/19/98 and the most recent 9/08/99 the dealer and the manufacturer both agree that although it does sound like a manufacturer's defect, they are no longer responsible because the vehicle is no longer under warranty. No safety defect (s) listed in the summary.
