Maintenance Nightmare Blazer
By ANC on
1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD
Bought this Blazer used. Right away
the main seal leaked and had to be
replaced. The automatic transmission
went bad and was replaced 1 year after
purchase. Two years later the radiator
corroded badly, the ball joints were
replaced (sounds typical), the oil
lines leaked and were replaced, the
transfer case and 4WD was serviced for
several defective internal parts, and
the passenger seat lever snapped. In
addition, all 4 rotors were rusted out
at 40000 miles.
The vehicle is confortable to ride in
and handles well on the road.
Chevy built this vehicle very poorly.
There are obviously repeated problems
with Blazers in this column and Chevy
needs to address those. I would never
buy one again due to the ongoing
