Recently I bought a brand new 2020 Blazer. Against better judgement. I only had a few hours to come up with a ride. I gave my original ride to my stepdaughter. I don't mind that. The only car that I've ever owned where it's been in the shop multiple times a courtesy vehicle issued to me twice. Totally waste of money. I honestly wish they would give me my money back so I could have got the vehicle that I should have got in the first place. Oh well lesson learned. I can't wait for the time when I get to get rid of it.
I owned my 03 Chevrolet Blazer for 10 years. I Loved it. Regret ever letting it go. Every vehicle I've owned since had just been problem after problem. In the 10 years I owned my blazer I only had minimal wear and tear fixes, changed the fuel pump once which was my own fault for adding a strange fuel additive. And a mass airflow sensor that got too dirty and quit. As far as safety goes, I've never felt safer in a vehicle. Well built heavy duty steel not that flimsy fiberglass on the newer vehicles. I did get into an accident head on with the blazer only at about 20 km but the newer Rav 4 had to be towed away it had so much damage. My blazer had a small dent in the bumper.

I love my Blazer. It has a tight turning radius, so it's easy to turn around. It has a great ride and is decent on fuel. Plus it's sooooo goood looking. I won't buy anything but a Chevy or a GMC.
I have several vehicles and have still own 4 gm products. The trailblazer only has 60,000 + miles, but I have had no real issues. I've towed a 3,500 lb boat hundreds of miles and other trailers numerous times with no issues. I bought this SUV in November 2001 (obviously one of the first in production) and still do have low mileage so my opinion may change over time since the resale is low and I really like this vehicle. I will probably keep it for years. I guess mine isn't a lemon.
At 70,000 miles my Chevy Trailblazer's cluster died! Speedometer and oil gauge either spin out of control or shows nothing when car is running. With all the past recalls for certain Chevy clusters I cannot understand how the blazer was omitted from this recall!!
I have kept my truck for 16 years and just spend $460 on tires and another $500 on other parts. The truck has 115k miles. I like how the truck rides and is quiet, that is true with almost all GM vehicles. The truck/SUV does require a bit of maintenance, ball joints, front end parts, radiator, emission system fan, I could go on and on. Overall it is not that bad to work on, and parts and videos on the web are easy to find. However if you have an older model and pay full price to have it fixed it will cost a lot. The aftermarket parts seem to work OK and you can save quite a bit. I just replace the encoder motor for the 4wd and it cost me 3 hours and $140. The dealer would do it in 1.5 hours and it would cost $900 with $100 diagnostics and a $600 part.
I have a 2007 Chevy trailblazer. Starting from a month after ownership I noticed a kick when my suv shifted from 1st to 2nd gear. I brought it into the dealership and would get turned away multiple times with excuses as to why it would do that. After about 1 1/2 years of bringing it in and them never even checking it out... they finally did and had to replace the transmission.
In year 2 I have had rear differential issues, abs and traction issues as well as other lights on the control panel pop up. My window motors have each been replaced more than 4 times in 6 years, and I have to replace my fan clutch annually (and this time I replaced it in october and it went out again and it's july) as well as burning through oil since 80,000 miles. I am completely pissed off at Chevy's lack of cooperation. I should have gotten rid of this vehicle when the transmission screwed up (which BTW it kicks again!) Now it's worth less than our 2001 saturn ls which is 6 years older and cost way less when we bought it.
There is a recall for the 2006 and 2007 trailblazer with their headlights to just stop working and mine did on may 27 2015 at 10:30 at night. Called national car safety filed a report because chevy whom I called first said it doesn't cover my truck so I have to pay out of pocket even though my truck is doing the same thing that's listed in the recall for my trailblazer and it was made during the recall years.
When I tried starting my 1995 Blazer it wouldn't start... I turn the key over and won't start, so me and my dad took a screw driver and seen if it was firing and it wasn't. We have changed the spark plugs. If you have any suggestions on what it could be... you can email me.
Transmission issues slipping 4WD went out twice. Rear-end needed complete rebuild. Dual climate control quit working. Rear wiper assembly broke. Starting burning oil at 80,000 miles. I should have never kept it this long. Something constantly needing fixing. Defroster quit working passenger side. Shifter had issues. Not Recommended!
