The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Blazer. The contact stated that the two rear brake lights above the hitch fail to illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. The dealer stated that the brake lights were already repaired according to the mechanic's records. She stated that her vehicle is under recall number 01V364000 (exterior lighting:hazard flashing warning lights:switch), but the dealer will not repair the vehicle for free since it was already performed. The current and failure mileages were 134,000. Updated 02/01/08. The drive belt and power steering pump.

I bought the 2000 Blazer used just over a year ago and have had nothing but problems. To begin, I replaced the alternator, fuel pump, and virtually all suspension components in the front end with just over 65,000 miles. On vacation during one of the hottest days of the year traveling home the Blazer over heated and left my family and I stranded on a major interstate with no A/C for nearly an hour before getting towed to the worst Chevrolet dealer in the country(richmond, va). We were forced to pay for a new radiator and miscellaneous parts totaling over $600. They said the coolant system was full of rust and the radiator was plugged and could not be reused. Now I'm experiencing the service engine soon that will not go out. After numerous trips to the dealer that started with leaking oil cooler lines, they said that the crank sensor was going bad. I replaced it, still the light stays on. Next they say there is a misfire in cylinder 2, I replace the plugs, wires, rotor, and cap. Still the light stays on. All of these repairs within the first 14 months of owning this junk and it is not anywhere near being paid for. GM needs to fix these problems. I have spoke with other Blazer owners and they too have experienced nothing but trouble. And the big 3 wonder why they are losing customers and market share. Have they ever heard of quality? looks like I'm going foreign.

While driving at highway speed the vehicle stalled without warning and coasted to the side of the road. The cause has not been determined. Please provide any additional information. 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.

The oil cooler lines are leaking on my 2000 Blazer( with only 54,248 miles). The mechanic who changed the oil today stated that he has yet to service a Blazer that didn't have leaking lines eventually. Interesting! he also stated that he didn't understand why there has not been a recall. If this is not the proper place to report this, please let me know. Perhaps you can also direct me to the correct place. Thank you.
