What a great truck

First I would have to say that only real reason that this is not my favorit truck is because does not have a diesel engine. That aside, I bough my 2000 Chevy Blazer about a 2 years ago from my uncle. When i got it it had around 70,000 miles on it and it was like new. No rust, no problems what so ever. Now after 2 years its still just as good as when i got it. I have the 4 wheel drive one and it has been a life save during the new england winters. The 4 wheel drive is really great for what the average person or for your basic off roading. I have not done any serous off roading in it but it got though every thing i threw at it no problem. It now as 138,000 miles on it and a side from basic manintance and a new set of tires I have had no issues with this truck. It has taken 10 years of rather hard use from towing boats, off roading, and traveling across the country, but it still is in amazing condition, and when I do wash it, it looks not a day old. If I had to pick out something bad about it I would say fuel econ. I get about 20 on the high way and about 16 in the city. But if thats what your worried about why are you looking at trucks. Its taken everything this 22 year old threw at it and like all other chevys I have had, it has never let me down.

Great little SUV

I bought my Blazer with just shy of 100,000 miles on it. Most people wouldn't even touch a vehicle with this many miles on it but mine now is just under 140,000 miles and it is running VERY strong. For those of you who need a vehicle for offroading I have never gotten this thing stuck and I have only used 4 low once. As a people hauler it will easily fit 5 people of decent size. As with all vehicles this one has an issue or two. For some reason GM didn't equip the S-10/Sonoma series vehicles (small pickups, Blazer's, Jimmy's, Bravada's) with strong enough lower ball joints so be prepared to replace them at least once in the vehicles lifetime. The 4.3 liter engine is a proven engine that has been around since the early 80's and is still used as the "small" engine for the full size pickups today. Overall this is an extremely versatile vehicle that requires a minimum amount of effort to maintain.

Great During a Rollover

I haven't been able to find a review about the rollover ratings for the 2000 Chevy Blazer BUT I just got out of a bad wreck involving my Blazer. I hit black ice going 60mph on the interstate and my blazer rolled 3 times with the first impact being on mine, the drivers side. At that speed, the vehicle held up GREAT! At the point where the driver's side window and the front windshield met, it did get pushed in as far as my where my head was (there was minor brain damage) BUT it still held up great! It could have been a LOT worse and the damage could have been a lot worse in regards to where the driver and the passenger were sitting. The car was considered totaled but I am thankful that no more damage was done. I consider the blazer having held up really well!

i have a 2000 blazer automatic and it is the most reliable car i have had so far. with the 4.3 engine it is not very fast but it is reliable. if you are looking for a faster old suv go with a cherokee also alot of the blazers are cheap under 6000 witch is a good value Put a flowmaster 40 on her and make it the perfect suv for the money.

It's a beast of a Chevy. The motor runs great, starts right up, heat & a/c works. 4WD is wonderful, New tires will last a long time, Awesome sound system, Safety is #1 when buying a vehicle and this truck is beyond safe. Tired of getting stuck in the snow? Or not being able to go anywhere because it's snowing? Then this truck is for you. The Blazer is immaculate when it comes to driving in deep slippery snowy roads, which is another reason it's really safe. I wouldn't hesitate to tell a friend to buy this truck.

I bought my 2dr rwd blazer when i was 16. ive had it since then too. but at a price. in the auto field most techs call them blazer kits. most have numerous problems, esp with the cooling system. so far ive replaced the water pump upper and lower intake gasket, thermostat, the radiator, pitman arm and steering linkage, door pins, and a ball joint. as far as saftey goes ive had a wheel fall down on me and was ok. pushed into a wall on the freeway and was ok. moved a 700 lbs snowplow on accident and the truck was pretty much unscathed. performace wise, i dog mine everyday. the pedal is always on the floor and im happy with it esp since its a bulky suv with a V6. my parking brake pedal is stuck on so i disconnected the cables and the seat belt warning light stays on even though i wear it so i taped over the light. replacing head and tail lamps are cake, and you rarely need to jack it up to work on it. i only do for the brakes. ive changed to trans fluid and filter several times with no problems, as well as engine lube and filter. good car if you know how to take care of them, but for the mechanically impared i would advise looking into something else because every blazer ive seen has had its fair share of problems. the inside is nice, nothing flashy just cloth and plastic in mine. they are easy to upgrade. rims, engine, stereo, what ever you want. PROS- performace and durabilty. i drove from tenn to ohio in three feet of snow on valentines day with 0 problems. they look pretty good if you take care of it. and working on them is easy CONS, YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK ON IT. thats it. if you have now qualms on getting your hands dirty or paying someone else to. then its a pretty good and cheap car to get.

by from Philadelphia, PA on January 4, 2012

This vehicle was the most reliable and economical car that I have owned in my life and I have owned many foreign cars. You can't beat it.

I've had this vehicle since 2000 and it has been very reliable. It is smooth driving in the city and yet I can take it to the mountains and get where I need to go. I have not had the issues that a couple of the reviewers mentioned. After such a great experience with this vehicle I will very likely consider another Blazer for my next vehicle (although I think that time is a long ways off!).
