I purchased this vehicle in February 2015 with 71,000 - the body was very well kept inside and out. What I didn't know was the extensive amount of rust and corrosion under the vehicle, which did not show initially. I have only had same a little over a year and have had to already replace front arm joints because they snapped in half and my tire was sitting crooked and in danger of falling off!! fuel lines had to be replaced because they completed rusted through and gasoline was leaking out all over. The driver door was checked 2X as it does not shut correctly and I can hear wind getting into the vehicle while driving (not to mention water pouring in over the driver's side door and door controls), the brakes go completely to the floor (despite being fixed), the ABS light and check engine light stay on despite being checked - this truck design is terrible and it now rides and sounds like a bucket of bolts. I have had many trucks from GMC jimmy, Chevrolet trailblazer, etc. - I have never had one that has gone completely sour in so short a time. I have also read the numerous accounts of people in accidents with this year vehicle and the brakes failing and airbags not deploying - I am seriously scared to drive this vehicle anymore. I am a single mother of 2 and thought I was purchasing a reliable vehicle for my family from a reputable company. I see that most of the complaints - if they were investigated by Chevy - were deemed "no problem found" and swept under the rug. What do I do?! I have already spent over $1,000 to fix this vehicle and it still has issues - I simply cannot afford to keep sinking $$ into a vehicle that is going to bleed me dry.

Crash- I was doing 25 mph when after hitting a deer swerved hit my front end on the corner of a hill and my vehicle went on to its side. There was hardly any damage done to the front end because I didn't hit very hard, but because of the side damage the vehicle was 500 dollars from being totaled. 2003 Chevy Blazer.

Body seams leaks water to the inside of my car. It was thought to be my sunroof, which dealer repaired and then replaced. The water caused all inside lights to short out (third repair). It was on the the fourth time to the service that it was found the actual body seams were leaking.
