Decent bang for the buck

2001 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4WD 4dr SUV w/OnStar (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I disagree with those that say the car feels unstable - I've had this thing on some uneven slopes and never had a problem. Overall, this has been a solid vehicle though not very exciting.

2001 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4WD 4dr SUV w/OnStar (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

On the whole, I have had a good experience with this vehicle. Some issues include: oil fittings leaked after just 2 years. Back seat not very comfortable for passengers. In winter, climate control system is difficult to adjust and maintain heat.

Chevy's ruining a good thing
By Spaznoids on 07/12/04 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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


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.

Lemon Nightmare!

Vehicle

2001 Chevrolet Blazer TrailBlazer 2WD 4dr SUV w/OnStar (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my TrailBlazer in April of 2003, it broke down at least once a month. Both tail lights broke - twice. The car had an electrical short that no one could find. Every time I got out of the car it would shock me. Each time I took it into the dealership they would tell me it was static - yea right. I have never had a car with cloth seats shock me EVERY time I closed the door. The transmission broke - but the dealership didn't think their was a problem. Good news - as long as you don't mind punching it to 4000 rpm's everytime you take off it will shift for you.

Word to the wise, buy something else!

2001 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4WD 4dr SUV w/OnStar (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the second Chevy Blazer I've owned, and, most definitely, the last. The quality of this product leaves much to be desired. Fortunately, I have not had to have in for too many repairs - one bad switch, which was a recall, and leaky oil cooling lines. Why does it seem that all Chevys of the same make and model have the same issues over and over again? It does not seem stable or safe. The interior components are cheap and flimsy. The engine, although powerful, is extremely inefficient! They say it gets 17 MPG average, 21 MPG highway. That is an outright lie! I'm lucky if I get 14 AVG! This will definitely be the LAST American car I purchase.

Biggest piece of scrap metal I own
By jano on 03/23/04 00:00 AM (PST)

2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

In the 8 yrs that I have owned my Nissan, I have less problems with it than I have had with this hunk of scrap metal. A totally rebuilt engine at 38,000 miles? Left and right wheel hub assembly replaced b4 33000? I look at it and despise the day I bought it. Should have paid attention to the poor reviews for reliability and mechanical soundness.

Alright, but don't run and buy one

Vehicle

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


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

Nice SUV...however

2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've owned this SUV for almost 3yrs now. Really enjoy driving it, however I've already had to have both front wheel bearings replaced. Tensioner in the engine, and the CD player quit. I have just over 36,000 miles on it and must say I'm a little concerned what the next few years may bring. I like the way it looks and got a great deal on it since the TrailBlazers were being unloaded while I was dealing.
