After 3 months of consumer's purchase when applying the ABS brakes the vehicle does not stop within feets. The ABS would allow the vehicle 4-5 Blazer distances before stopping. On 4-3-97 the seat belts stopped locking. Also, when the engine is running and hood opened one can see a spray mist of gasoline misting from the engine, the smell is penetrating into the inside compartnment and is unconfortable to consumer. Please give consumer a call. Vehicle is parked at this time.
