problem #9

Jun 052005

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


The handle that allows you to recline the seat broke off flushed with the seat, this happened to both the driver and passenger seats in June 2005. The hood will not pop up when the lever was pulled until one banged on the grill or the hood in certain spots, which just started in March of 2007. The gas mileage dropped from 20 mpg to 16 mpg within 6 months. The back glass stuck and was hard to open, started in 2006. When turning on the air conditioner (A/C ) the car had no power, I have to turn it off when accelerating on the interstate or on hills. If the cruise control was set it kicked off when the A/C was on. When I needed to stop quickly the brakes failed, and felt a grinding sensation through the pedal, but the mechanic changed the brakes and checked the rotors, but hasn't found any problem. Suspected a defect somewhere in the brake system\ as of 2005. The fan kicked on all the time, even when the engine was cold, and in winter when first starting. One mechanic told me that in many Blazer the catalytic converter broke off in the muffler, which had to be replaced. Had been told this happened so much that most people left them off. Too many other problems to mentioned. Also, the horn worked only when it wanted to, problem in the steering wheel.

I purchased my 2000 Blazer in 6/20/02 from a Chevy dealer in pa. I purchased the extended warranty. I have until 6/07 OR100000 miles I have replaced the coil and distributor cap and rotor 5 times a new fuel pump a catalytic converter windshield washer motor and turn signal switch it has gotten to the point that I can't even sell it to anyone private and I can't afford to keep it. There has been electrical and computer issues shorts that melted the fuse box under the hood that melted the relay for the fuel pump. Also there was a short that wiped the computer codes out and I had a rough time passing emission testing I am at the point the extended warranty does not want to spend any more on the vehicle. I have had the motor mounts replaced twice in 4 years. I have never been notified of any recalls orservice notices. I have had the vehicle serviced by licensed mechanics and had it serviced at the appropriate mileage required for the warranty.

In addition, consumer experienced vibrating when stopping. Dealer performed front and rear brake service by replacing worn out pads and rotors. Dealer also made repairs on lower ball joints, pitman and idler arm assembly.

Purchased 2000 Blazer 11/24/00. Many problems since. Transmission cooler line, warranty repair. Oil cooler lines, upper and lower, warranty repair. Warranty expired and they are leaking still. Problem never really fixed. Idler arm, warranty repair. Driver side recline handle driver seat fell back would not return to upright position, warranty repair. Both front wheel bearings and rotors, warranty repair. From day 1 numerous rattles and squeaks. Door panels rattle constantly. Passenger seat rattles and squeaks. Windshield wiper entire arm came off, repaired at my expense. Out of warranty, at 41,699 miles but not even (2) years old, transmission had to be rebuilt at my expense. Chevy customer service is a joke! cost of transmission $2,442 and the cost of a two week car rental. Even when transmission line had to be repaired we had to rent a car at our expense because local dealer refused to supply a loaner. Again Chevy customer service a joke! called Chevy hot line/help line and was just given the run around. I will never buy Chevy american made auto again. Why is it you can buy any item at most department stores and take it back and receive satisfaction, but spend $25,000+ for a Chevy product and you are screwed when you simply want the reliability and service you were promised. I tell every person I meet not to buy a Chevy. Solid like a rock? what a lie!

Vehicle is 18 months old and already having problems with brakes pulsating. GMC had consumer go to dealer so they could confirm what the problem was. Consumer went to midas, and they found rear brake rotors corroded, and pads had grooves cut in passage. Dealership would not roadtest vehicle or visually inspect it, consumer had rotors and pads replaced at midas.
