2000 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

This truck has served our family well from the standpoint of pure utility. Living in Wisconsin for several years, not once have I had trouble in deep snow or any inclement weather. We have taken this offroad and it's been great for that purpose. However, I have had to replace the transmission, the fuel pump (twice), wheel bearings (twice), ball joints, and my driver side window stopped working. There have been some electrical issues with the ABS, and my check engine light has been on for sometime. I really have enjoyed this truck, but mechanical issues have really plagued it. It has 154000 miles on it currently. The 4.3L Vortec engine has kept running strong though.


Best Features

Offroad capability, good looks, good strong engine.


Worst Features

Too many repairs needed on the front end and transmission. Somewhat outdated now.

Review

Not to small, amazing in snow (even with standard diff) Easy to maintain, if you know what will go wrong. Its a 3/4 v8 350, so many power mods. Being 9 years old it has it problems, but I still get from point a to b. Would buy more just because the 4.3 will last over 250,000 miles


Best Features

4x4, auto dimming mirrors


Worst Features

door bushings, fuel pump, heater core, head gaskets OD off button

2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I have been maintaining on the police car/ taxi schedule which is double the norm. Three radiators, 5 ac systems. Transmission out at 42k, heater core and front differential out at 80k. Dealer set it on fire during repair so new ac, and half the engine. Then engine went out with rods or mains at 102K. New engine replaced 5k later with a knock (Jasper engine). New catalytic, engine light on for o2 sensor now. Looks great and get compliments on what great shape it is in and you can eat off the motor it is kept so clean. Over 16k in total repairs including fire damage. Wife hates it and when I got rear-ended she only hoped it was totaled. What happened Chevrolet? My Astro ran to over 275K.


Best Features

Its still shiny.


Worst Features

More power and GM should have some pride when they make a car.

2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS 2dr SUV


Review

This little truck has been a headache from day one. In four months I have replaced the front brakes and rotors, the fuel pump and the wheel bearings. Pretty well the only thing I like about it is the looks.


Best Features

I like the way it looks and handle snow.


Worst Features

Nothing to improve because they don't make them any more. No Wonder. What a lemon.

Review

I have the ZR2 off-road package, and overall this has been a dependable vehicle. Reasonably comfortable, low wind noise, rides well (for a 4x4), suspension package was a great investment - have gotten 70k miles w/o uneven wear on tires, fun little SUV for cross-country camping trips. 21 mpg highway, 15 city. It hasn't been without its issues. It does tend to have a lot of squeaks, cheap-o interior plastic doesn't help. The biggest problem I had was having to replace the transmission at 50,000 miles. Did have some premature ball joint replacement also. Heater core went out at about 110k miles, radiator cracked at 140k. Other minor problems such as malfunctioning thermometer and broken fuel ga


Best Features

Styling of ZR2 package - very muscular look that can still be considered stylish. Capable off-road. Reasonably comfortable on long trips (for 2). Heavy duty suspension really saves the tire wear, even if the ride is a bit stiff as a result.


Worst Features

Cheap interior plastic & rear gate that contribute to squeaks. A few premature maintenance/replacement issues (fine since initial repair). Other issues are to be expected of a truck with 143,000 miles on it.
