The 2000 Chevy Blazer is a mechanical and saftey nightmare! this vehicle was purchased brand new/lease and I have had problems from the beginning. The exhaust has never sounded normal; it has a preignition (rattle-like) noise, and I was recently told that the catalytic converter is bad. The alternator failed at approximately 12000 miles. The hazard lights failed in April 2002, and the brake lights failed shortly after. The steering problems include: Clunking when turning to the left, a shift in the front end (feels like the front pass. Side steering components are loose). The vehicle is almost impossible to control on freeway due to loose steering and inability to control on transitioning/uneven pavement. The dealer has replaced front pass-side tierod and stabilizer, and the steering wheel now has a 12-15degree, off-center, right list. Cutter cheverolet of Hawaii is now having us try to reproduce the problem(s), and trying everything they can to not accept that the vehicle is, in fact, a "lemon"! what does it take to prove that a vehicle is just not a good vehicle; does my family have to get injured or die to prove there is a problem! we are a "GM-family"(entitled to GM family discounts), and this is how we get treated...no acceptence of responsibility or pride/honesty in their product. I will never buy another GM product; ever! the dealership, GM factory, and gmac should rightfully accept responsibility and take the vehicle back. I have better things to pay $384 per month!
