problem #1

May 282004

Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,702 miles
All of a sudden in late may when I hit my brakes they made a crushing sound and the entire vehicle would shake and the ABS light came on. So at 51000 miles I am told that my front and rear brakes and rotors all need to be replaced. The mechanic couldn't believe how badly the rotors we rusted. After the brakes we repaired ABS still kicks in at the very last minute before the vehicle stops. So I had to take the vechicle to another repair shop so they could do a computer diagnostics and I am told that my ABS modul needs to be replaced and the cost is approx $1300. When I asked if this was normal at 51000 miles the man said "it's a Blazer". oh, did I mention my front bearing is also shot but I'm broke. Also, in the past 2 years the vehicle has been back to the dealer numerous times because the security light would stay on and the interior dome light would remain on. After the dealer "fixed" it a few times then other issues started the gas gage doesn't work all the time and sometimes the vehicle will not start. I've had it with the dealer and know I just deal with it.
