Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Blazer

  • Although it does offer a strong running V6, the Blazer is otherwise outclassed by nearly every other sport-ute on the market. An option only if the low price is too hard for you to overlook.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Unique Xtreme and ZR2 suspension packages, competent drivetrain, cheap price.

  • Cons

    Aged platform, spotty build quality, low-grade interior parts, uncomfortable rear seats, poor resale value.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Blazer is available exclusively as a two-door this year, as four-doors are now sold as fleet vehicles only.

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Blazer LS Fleet Rwd 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

I have an 2005 Blazer and I haven't had any problems with it! It's my first vehicle and I love it! Has plenty of power, reliability and there is no rust at all!! I have 160000 thousand miles on it and it drives like it's an brand new vehicle. I think the reviews are a little off because this vehicle has no problems at all! I recommend this vehicle to anyone!

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Blazer LS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I bought this Blazer in April, 2009 with 56,000 miles. Now it has 81,000 miles on it. Have no complaints. I love the 4.3 L vortec v6 and 4-spd. At with od. The body & interior are great. I don't have many riders in back seats, so I flip them down for excellent cargo space. I live at the beach, but travel to the n. C. Mountains frequently. My Blazer does everything I need and more. All accessories work great, and the ride is good. I love the ride height, the acceleration, the ease of parking, etc. For a person looking for an average SUV without the high price tag and high insurance rate, this is a good choice. There is nothing bad I can say about my Blazer. I am very pleased with it.

I just love it. Wanted a Blazer 16 years ago, but bought an s10 truck instead. The s10 went almost 200,000k, hope I have that luck again. Knock on wood, no problems as of yet. All regular main. Has been done, including killer 4x4 trans service and differential at 50,000. Try to keep it spotless, hard when on the jobsite, though.

Got blazer?

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I love it. Great in snow, like how it looks, rides well. Acceleration is lacking, heavy vehicle, needs chip, and exhaust, [aftermarket], for 40+ horsepower gain. Mines red, waxed, and ready.

I've owned this truck a little more than a year and I love it. Yeah, it costs some money to drive, my 50000 mile trans service was ouch, but the 4 wheel drive, and feeling safe with my 3 yr old in the back is worth it. I didn't like the look of the 4 door, got the 2. Victory red. You know I've waxed, and keep the underneath clean, these last few winters.

No problems at all. knock

My ZR2 has been great. Besides changing the oil, putting gas in it, and washing it, I've never spent a dime in repairs. It is reliable to cut through the worst of Minnesota winters that I've traveled through in the last 4 years. It's now Feb 2009 and I only have 1 payment left and I'm going to keep this truck for years to come. There is nothing like it now on the market in comparison. I haven't even put new brakes on, (I drive mostly highway miles). So wish me luck as I've had good fortune with this truck. Hey Chevy! Start building them, or something close to ZR2's soon!

My Blazer (4.3L) started cycling the AC compressor for no apparent reason. With climate controls and defrost off at idle I was hearing a click (compressor clutch engaging) and idle would jump 300rpm....

     Toyota vehicles have been the most reliable brand for me but "real" Chevy vehicles (1980 Chevy Van and 2001 Blazer LT) and my Ford F-150 have also been very reliable....

First off I owned several Chevy Cars from a Blazer to a Eurosport and a Camaro. The Blazer I had went 200K Miles and had Minimal Maintenance issues. Test drove a 2005 Chevy Equinox 4/10/14 with 77,1x...
