2002 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Comments

problem #5

Jul 162005

Blazer 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


Drove from Ohio to Florida, 1040 miles. 250 miles into the trip, my console became extremely hot. The side of the console touches the drivers seat and it was making my seat very hot. The items inside my console melted, the hand wash burnt my hand when I took it out to use it. Now the console is getting hot only after 50 miles and sometimes less than that. Also, the cd player gets hot. The cd's occasionally become so hot that I drop them when they get spit out by the player by itself. I have no idea what the problem is and I am worried my Blazer may catch fire or blow up. Also, at times when I start up again from a red light, the transmission sounds so loud like it is working very hard to get moving. I know these things are not normal. Am I safe driving my Blazer? I bought it brand new in 2002. Now I am afraid of it.

My multi function switch quit on my 2002 Chevy Blazer. There was a recall on this very part for over 500,000 vechiles but my VIN # was not ione of them. I consider this to be an ongoning problem that should be replace by GM. They tell me it will cost $450 to replace. But if it is an on going problem they should relace it at no charge since it was a faulty item.

The vehicle has a terrible odor, similar to mold or mildew, that began over four months ago. I have taken it to the dealer five times and to two independent mechanics, and no one has been able to locate the cause or fix the problem.

Consumer states there is a 20 inch long panel between the back seat that is obstructing view out of rear windshield and rear-view mirror when driving in reverse. Consumer has to stick head of out window and look backwards in order to see completely.
