2000 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #3

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.

Never took in for rear wiper. Started leaking oil, so took to dealer here in roosevelt 21, Dec. Started to provo Jan. 10, cruise control went off, speedometer would not work, this caused the car to not shift. Pulled off road as car stops, turned car back on, turned around to return home. Afraid to continue over mountains. Took to murry motors, could not find anything wrong. Took for a 30 minute mile ride and it happened again. Will take back this following Monday to be checked again. Can not drive if it wont shift. Took to murray motors for oil leak. They replaced two hoses. Not connected properly, causing leak. Thanks Mrs. Riding. ****dimsii IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis*****770837
