2001 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 112005

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,218 miles


My 2001 Chevy Blazer had uneven tire wear indicating the need for a front end alignment. During the inspection I was informed that the lower ball joints had to be replaced as well as the idler arm and should do the upper joints as well. I had never heard of a vehicle with 56,000 miles needing to have this done. Of course, now I hear of many owners having the same problem. The unexpected $900 bill was not pleasant! the mechanic said it was a common problem that he saw with Chevy products. Do I have any chance of being compensated for the less than quality parts installed on my vehicle?

While driving at any speed consumer continued to hear a thumping sound coming from the front of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for an examination, and dealer determined that lower ball joints needed replacement.

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles
Transmission dropped out @44000 miles. 12/02 had to replace both front ball joints. Summer of '03 started making loud popping noises which came from front right area, it would pull unexpectedly to either side - mainly to the right and service 4WD light would come on. 10/03 had to have right front wheel bearing replaced. Could find nothing wrong with 4WD-don't know why light keeps coming on. Now 01/04, right front wheel bearing needs replaced again. I'm told part under warranty as long as I own vehicle cause GM has received so many complaints. What is GM doing to correct the root cause of this" I see I am not the only one with this problem. Thank god I have not had any accidents, but have had a few near misses because the it would "jerk instantly" and it caught me off guard. Does an accident / injury / fatality have to happen before corrective action is taken"
