2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Bought the vehicle used, with low miles, and GM certified. Also purchased the extended warranty, and it's a good thing. This vehicle has been in the shop more than any other vehicle I've ever owned, with oil cooler lines twice, battery cables corroding prematurely, coolant leaks, and worst of all, lack of heat. No one has been able to fix the heat concern, even after seven tries, with the radiator, heater core, and main control head being relpaced, plus a flush. The vehicle is also the worst riding car I've ever owned.Also rattles everywhere- Don't get me wrong- I am not bashing GM because I've had other GM products that have been terrific and I definitely will own another- just not a Blazer
The automatic four wheel drive, the 4.3 engine- plenty of power.
Too late now since the vehicle is out of prodution, but better ride and definitely a better heating system.
