Very Disappointed

I purchased a 2021 blazer in March of 21. I have had many issues with this car. Fuel Pump control module 2 times, in the shop for 6 weeks due to oil leaks, other sensors, and just this week it had to go back due to CPS censor. I love the car and design but the issues and number of trips to the shop is a NEGATIVE!!!!!! 12 - 13 times in shop!!!!!!!

DO NOT BUY A BLAZER

I’ve had this 21 Blazer for 22 months and it’s going back into the dealer for the 3rd and 4h problem. Before my first oil change the rear toe was out of alignment. Before 10k miles front toe was out of alignment. Vehicle handles like complete xxxx in the winter especially if the roads are Icy or snow packed mixed with dry patches. Feels like I am going to tail spin out of control! Very unsafe feeling. Now there is a very loud creaking noise coming from the rear end and the whole radio display will randomly not work and freeze. I have to shut the vehicle off to get it to work. Not even 20k miles on this vehicle. Do better Chevy! A brand new vehicle shouldn’t do this. Even with the Chevy discount this will be my last Chevy.
