1997 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #1

Blazer 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


My '1997 Chevrolet Blazer lost its control after failing its right front upper ball joint of knuckle assembly. Right front tire was off the ground and the rh frt knuckle scrubbed the inside of tire rim. The Chevrolet dealer inform me to replace the upper ball joint as a recall item. And they charge me for all the other damaged parts. Second problem: The gear shifting lever did not go to the right position on the prindle during my driving. I asked the Chevy dealer to fix it. They open the instrument panel and they told me they fixed it. The same day, my transmission was engaged into different gears against my intention during drving condition. The transmission began to make a kicking sound on the road besides shifting into any gearas and making serious metallic noise on the free way. The Chevy dealer recommended me my vehicle needed a new transmission and I had to pay for it after paying for instrument panel fix, replacement of torque converter and towing from Tennessee to detroit.
