Since I have owned: Rebuilt
Transmission, Power steering repair,
starter repair, etc. Handles on both
fronts seats broke off from poor design.
Can not see over headrest to see to
turn, etc. No overhead back seat light,
very dark. Shocks for back hatch window
came off. I have a friend who has a
1998 blazer and they dislike it as much
as I do. If only I had read this review
before I bought my Blazer.
Fold down back seats for hauling
Blazer needs to hire better design
engineers and built better parts that
do not wear out in 2 to 5 years.
Horrific ride but the worst thing is
its POOR OVERALL QUALITY! Things that
shouldn't leak @ 50K do; oil lines,
front differential etc... And worse
yet, stuff that shouldn't "ever" break
(even if its sitting in a junkyard),
does; door handles, seat adjustment
knobs & levers. Not to mention, all the
ball joints needing replacement before
50K. In fact, I'm surprised the
engineers that designed this piece of
CRAP can sleep at night. No wait, it's
the Japanese who intentionally build in
quality, right? I should have expected
this from GM--needless to say, I sold
mine and will be reading and believing
these reviews "before" buying my next
Moon roof and Radio were OK, but sad to
say, those are the only good points of
This car is in the shop every 3 - 6
months even during the warranty period.
We have spend over 4000.00 on repairs
since then and now an additional 1500.00
is required. Getting rid of it and will
not buy another chevorlet product. My
husband says they were drunk when they
built my car. Non of my family or
friends will buy this product after
watching us shell out so much money on
such a sorry product. Chevrolet should
be ashamed of themselves.
Good thing you will not be manufacturing
this product anymore.
This car was a huge disappointment. I
bought it very excited. It was nice on
the outside and the inside was great.
I was extremely happy and loved my
Blazer, for about a month. Then the
problems came. One after another. I
bought the car with only 36k on it,
and brought it back to the dealer
again and again and again etc..
Problems ranging from switches, seats,
blower motor, oil leaking, heater
core, water pump, etc. Problem was not
always fixed after the 1st, 2nd, or
even 3rd time I brought it back to the
This SUV has been nothing but trouble.
In addition to lots of small things
(three horn relays, transmission seals
bad at 40,000 miles, etc.) I just foudn
out that I need a new transmission and
oil coolant lines. I trading in this
piece of junk for a foreign car. I'll
never buy another Chevrolet again and
will be sure to tell everyone I know
about the poor quality and even poorer
service that I received from Chevy.
Can think of any.
Chevrolet needs to build a quality
product and offer a warranty that is
better than 3 years/36,000. I'm buying
a Hyandai SUV with a 10 year/100,000
