first 1200 (1996)miles blew a
transmission seal, then air conditioner
wouldnt work while 105 in Nevada.
Costly tows (reimbursed) due to warranty
many times in the garage due to
transmission problems, replaced
transmission in 2002 and the extended
warrantly goes back to the original date
of purchase not the date we had implemented.
will not buy another GM blazer type
vehicle, especially this kind. I have
talked to many other owners and yes they
too have had tranny problems.
transmission is a major problem, and
improve on the seats
I bought this car thinking it would be
the greatest thing ever! This has given
me nothing but problems! It doesnt get
very good gas mileage, i needed to
replace the alternator, battery, head
cylinder, brakes and more. It has 130k
miles and many things are falling apart
on the inside. The rear left door gets
jammed shut, the drivers door hindge is
falling apart, backseat drivers side
power window button broke, and many
other things are falling down hill!
Everytime i get in the car i just hope
it will get me from one place to
another without dying. Do yourself a
favor and get a different car, unless
you plan on putting 5,000$+ into auto-
Back windows go all the way down, Fold
down rear seats, Overhead console...
This vehicle has needed more repairs
than any other car I have ever owned.
I too have had problems with oil leaks
requiring high cost repairs. AC,
engine, transmission problems. Each
time I say I will sell it, another
costly repair is required and then I
keep it only to get back a little of
what I put into it. I am very good
about doing the routine maintenance so
it is not that I just let this car go.
I wil not buy one again, nor would I
ever recommend it. --I also get poor
Body is sound.
Mechanics have told us that some parts
on the Blazer are more appropriate to a
car vs an SUV (eg: Ball joints are too
small for an off road vehicle)
I bought my blazer used and it had
45,000 miles on it I have put on
103,000 since then. Within 6 months I
had a new tranny, Brake System, and Air
Conditioning system. But you can't
turn back time and redo what the person
before you did. Since then I have had
really no problems I have Had to
replace the thermostat several times
and a battery a couple of times and
that is about it. It is Great for a
I love the get up and go, the room even
though it is a small truck.
They could improve the gas mileage, and
the cooling system. It does not want
to stay cool when it is about 105 or
