Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • 72,500 miles
We have a 2000 Chevy Blazer VIN [xxx]. since ownership the vehicle has been expected. My sister has complained numerous times about issues with rattles, squeaks and body issues. We have noticed early in the vehicles life the amount of rust this Blazer has on the underbody. This has been the issue of some of the noises. Recently, she complained again of a suspension noise while stopping, turning or hitting ruts or holes in the road. I inspected and lubricated problematic points that we addressed in the past. The noise would come and go. Finally, she mentioned a feel of control loss while braking and making turns and the noise. She mentioned the noise was so loud people would stare or turn heads. Upon my inspection I was shocked and never have seen this problem on any vehicle. The rear shackles that hold the rear leaf spring to the frame had completely rusted through. Thus allowing the leaf spring to float freely on the frame rail in rear. This shackle allows the leaf spring to move forward and backward during suspension flex. In addition, this stabilizes the rear end and keeps everything in place-consult a mechanic for specific function. I have dealt with many cars in my life as well as trucks. Never, have I seen this rust issue in any vehicle-Chevy to note as well. I am demanding a response to this problem and I will further contact traffic safety about this issue. I'm sorry, but this is a serious issue at hand. This Blazer has around 73000 miles and from the outside paint and interior looks in excellent condition. However, when looking at the underside carriage, engine compartment and the integrity of the door hinges (especially drivers door) it is a mess. I am expecting a reasonable explanation on this issue and appreciate your input. *** this is the same letter I sent to GM.

On Sept 10 2005 I took my car to have a tune up done on it and the mechanic told my husband that the rear end of my vehicle was about to go. I had just purchased the vehicle about 7 months prior to this happening and I have been told that this should not have happened on a 2000 chev Blazer, with that low of mileage. I had notified the dealership where I purchased the car and they in turn wanted to put me into another vehicle but that is not what I wanted I had wanted them to fix my car the one that they had sold to me. I want to know if there is anything that can be done to get my car to run right, so that I may use it and not pay for one to sit in my drive way. And I wanted to find out if this happened to any other 2000 chev Blazer? sincerely yours susan burgos.

I have had numerous problems with my 2000 Chevy Blazer ls 4X4. Under warranty the dealer replaced the oil lines by the oil filter, whole seat mechanism, driver side window motor, rear shock. They also fixed my hood rattle after 5 visits to the dealer and I told them what was wrong the first time it went in. Since then at 40,000 miles the driver side wheel bearing went out and had it replaced and at the same time had the fuel pump replaced since that went out also. At 50,000 miles the same one went out again and had it replaced. Now at 68,000 miles the passenger side wheel bearing is bad. Also on my first wheel bearing replacement, they told me the ball joints were very loose and should think about replacing those also. These things should never be going wrong with such low miles. From what I am reading on the web and hearing from the dealers, this is a very frequent problem that Chevy will not recall and take responsibility. I sure am happy that I haven't had a wheel fall off and kill someone yet.

Car wobbles (vibrates) at highway speeds. Feels like flat tire or tire going to fall off. Tire dealer says not a tire problem. Dealership recognizes a problem but doesn't have an answer for it.
