Horrible on icy roads

As much as I love the Blazer, it’s it the absolute worst vehicle on icy roads. We put new winter tires on and same issue. It feels as though the lane control is on and throws the vehicle all over. There was 3 others that I know of from the dealership that reported same issue. GM said “it’s handling as designed”. No it’s a death trap and there’s definitely something wrong. I haven’t heard of any being affected but the 2021. The new 2024 has a “snow and ice” mode so I’m sure there must have been an issue. I no longer want to drive this vehicle on ice at all.


Transmission slipping

Bought brand new. 60,000 miles currently and the transmission is slipping. Had it in drive and hit the gas and it revved up like it was in neutral. RPMs rise while going down a hill with no gas applied.


Tires are terrible

Fine car but my complaint comes with the continental tires that are on the vehicle I have 27000 miles on it and the outside of all tires are wore down to 2/32 and need to be replaced. Chevy sees no problem with this and tires simply wear down and now I am responsible for paying over 1,000 dollars to have them replaced. So much for Chevy being reliable and provide safety and comfort. Always check the tires before you purchase this vehicle.
