No more Blazers for me!
By Maureen on
2000 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD
Perhaps we should have not leased this vehicle for 5 years, but the reliability as well as mechanical functions are starting to fail. The vehicle will shift itself into 4 wheel drive. We have had it in for service for this, and the dealer cannot find the reason why it is doing this. The front brakes especially are awful, and they have had to be replaced way too often. I don't drive a lot of miles to work, or drive the vehicle a lot in general. Not a lot of excess wear and tear to explain the need for the brakes to be replaced as frequently as they have been. And gas mileage is terrible. My hubby's F-150 gets better gas mileage than the Blazer does. A lot of squeaks and rattles while driving.
This is an awesome vehicle to drive in deep snow. With 20 plus inches of snow fall at one point last winter, I was able to plow through anything without a problem.
Well, the gas mileage is terrible, but with a SUV I guess that's to be expected. Maybe a little more head room would be nice.
