2001 Chevrolet Blazer SUV Xtreme 2dr 2WD SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I purchased a 2001 blazer xtreme in 2005 with 55,000 miles which i still own (176,000 miles now). I loved my blazer since day 1 and have to say it, I took my brother's 2013 honda civic to Santa Cruz and is this thing as fun to drive as my xtreme, NOT even close. For a chassis used for decades by GM on their blazer it is a outstanding small sporty SUV. Ones again, super fun to drive.

Review

I bought my X-treme in 2008 with 76,000 miles for a daily driver and I fell in love. I go by people in X- treme pickups and they almost wreck seeing an X-treme Blazer. Im glad to see positive feedback from other X- treme owners 'cus it sounds like other models are goofing up. I am in the process of supercharging my blazer for some extra fun & that extra Umph of pulling into traffic but it does great while stock. It has a nice smooth ride and great stock looks I would never change. All my friends tried to buy it the first time they saw it. Im only 21, but I know a good Chevy when I see one & this is definitely one of them. My Chevys have always ran good, even my 1950 Chevy runs like a top!!


Best Features

It has Comfey seats, a great sporty look, and I've amazed myself & others from what I can fit in the back. I haven't towed with it yet but I like having a hitch just in case.


Worst Features

I maintain it with everything it needs when it needs it (sometimes before) but I still get poor gas mileage from time to time even with "babying" it. Its weird 'cus some weeks it does great even with the same driving pattern.

Review

This car is really reliable, like most GM's. The 4.3 is plenty powerful to tow or for merging into traffic. The fuel economy isnt that bad either, I average 16-17 city and 20-22 highway with a heavy foot. Overall I am really happy with this truck and plan on keeping it a long time.


Best Features

Looks great and very reliable.


Worst Features

None at this time.

Review

Plastic vibrating sounds whenever you
hit the smallest of
potholes, a huge hump across the
passenger side floorboard, sluggish
pickup (my wifes 2003 sunfire out
excelerates the blazer), and not to
mention this hideous popping and
grinding sound that comes from the
front wheels when you turn the wheel
all the way one direction or the
other. It's a shame Chevy just throws
things together anymore.


Best Features

Sound system, exterior look


Worst Features

Better interior materials, stronger suspension (700 pound payload won't even carry four 200 pound men) better fuel mileage, and some more get up and go. Thought the EXTREME would turn out to be more than just a fizzle and pop.

Review

3 people I know bought blazers within
3 monthes of getting this one, all
three have had the exact same problems
at the exact same mileage meaning the
overall quality is terrible, the ride
is too stiff for as bad as the truck
handles - all the interior pieces
rattle when you drive anywhere - can
get beat (speed wise) by most any car
on the road


Best Features

Exterior Styling


Worst Features

QUALITY, Better suspension package, AWD w/ turbo would be nice, better resale
