2000 Chevrolet Blazer SUV LS 2dr SUV 4WD


Review

First day I bought this SUV alternator went... it was covered by the dealership so didnt have to pay out of my own pocket. Bought this SUV with 79,000 miles after about 10,000 miles front right tire fell right off while driving due to trashed wheel bearing. ABS/brake lights always on even after replacing brakes. Strong engine great 4WD... I have the ZR2 version, love the raised suspension and big tires... lots of space behind 2nd row seats. Enough room for a 15 inch kicker in a 36 inch box.


Favorite Features

CD player, auto door locks n windows...great during our Boston winters had no problem trucking through 3 ft of snow on 4WD Low. easy to switch from 2WD to 4WD. Comfortable interior. Very tinted windows.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage about 12 in city 17 highway. more advanced brake systems/wheel bearings... no visibility out of back window or back side windows. Wish it was alittle more reliable

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


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

I bought my Blazer used with 90K(kms) on it, and it's been a blast. This is my 5th Blazer/Jimmy, and they're great vehicles if you know what to look for. The following problems are a given after about 120k: ball joints, leaky oil lines, heater core, squeaky rear window, recliner handles will break off, door hinge bushings, and if not maintained properly, auto transmissions will probably go around 200k. If your vehicle still has Dex- cool in it (orange anti-freeze), I would highly recommend getting it flushed and replaced with the regular green stuff, and that may save you some headaches. The fuel economy is not great, but like most vehicles, maintain these properly and they'll treat you well.


Favorite Features

Decent power, lots of interior space for it's size, great interior/exterior design.


Suggested Improvements

More efficient V6

Review

I bought my blazer in 2008, from the dealership, the gas gauge did not work. fixed. The first big investment was the intake gasket that went bad. It was replaced with a metal gasket, and shouldn't need replacing ever again. After that, it started acting very strangely...it would be going down the road, and start hesitating, or lose power suddenly. I went through and replaced plugs, wires, distributer cap and rotor, air filter, gas filter, battery, cat, and exhaust, the fuel pump sounds like it's screaming, it gets terrible gas mileage, and the front dash squeaks. So far to fix the hesitation issue, i've dumbed a bottle of sea foam in the gas tank, which has helped for now.


Favorite Features

tinted windows, nice for hauling stuff.


Suggested Improvements

put more quality parts in.
