2002 Chevrolet Blazer Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Blazer
My lovely blue Chevrolet Blazer.
I bought my car off of an individual that no longer needed the vehicle. It's a reliable car. It has a lot of miles. Over 300, 000 miles to be more precise. When I got the car it seemed pretty immaculate inside. The parts were almost all the original parts. The shocks need to be checked as it is a very bouncy ride. The oxygen sensor light has been on since before I owned it. The original owner said he had changed it but it continued to malfunction. The ac only works on the settings three and four. The windows only work when the driver controls them. The passengers cannot open and clothes their windows. The car runs smoothly. It is extremely reliable. The gas can be filled with a little more than 30 dollars. It is good on gas. The rear hatch has to be opened by the button in the console. The trunk cover no longer stays on it tends to come apart and bang around as I take my turns. The ac does get really cold really fast. I love the fact that the seats can be maneuvered to the position that suits you. The best. It is a bit of a short SUV I am 5'7' so I need to position my chair to the furthest from the steering wheel. I really don't like the lighting system as I feel that my headlights are not illuminating the road well enough in the dark. I makes me nervous to drive in the dark. Especially if it raining.
Older but reliable blazer!
I love that my blazer is a 4 door small SUV! With small kids and car seats it is nice to still have space for strollers and groceries. I also love that I do not have a car payment! Things I do not necessarily care for is the maintenance on it. We bought it used and former owner did not take care of it well. Husband does all maintenance on car and it is a bit of a challenge working around motor, as space is rather small. Also not a huge fan that with 2 car seats we can only fit 4 people of vehicle at 1 time. For now it does the job I need and one day will probably upgrade to trailblazer or equinox. Blazer has power seats and windows, cruise-control. It does have a leak so we have to put Freon in it for ac at least once or twice for summer but then it stays really cold! Husband has also replaced intake manifold. But overall not bad for a vehicle that is 16 years old!
Pros and cons of having an older Chevy blazer.
I bought my car used so it came with a lot of problems. Even though it drives great and is super safe if you end up in an accident, it is very expensive to find parts to fix your car to do it being an older model. It is also very safe and reliable in the winter do to it having 4 wheel drive but sometime the wiring needs fixed so it will not kick out. Plus, it sits up higher so it makes it easier to see oncoming problems and traffic.
That it has good gas mileage.
I love my car, it gets about 17 miles per gallon. Just had a few problems that I feel all older cars will come across. The four wheel drive light comes on and says it needs serviced. They check engine light is on for a few sensors and the gas gauge will go from half or less to the e randomly making it hard to see how much gas I have. I still love it though, easy to drive.
Great SUV for all around family vehicle - great for vacation travel.
I have owned the blazer since 2005, bought it used. Great four wheel drive vehicle for living up north in the land of the snow and I do not remember if it had any recalls on the vehicle, it is a reliable vehicle and tows a nineteen foot camper very well. Great family vehicle. Had two large labrador retrievers, plenty of room in the back cargo area for them too.
The snow white life saver.
My car is super reliable with the basics nothing too fancy. It has heating, cooling, and a CD player. The car goes up to 100mph. Its ok on gas, sits up high, and is white. My car has plenty of trunk space with normal fabric seating. One time the air conditioning stopped working in the middle of summer but once it was fixed she cooled back down.
Older is not necessarily better.
We have a 2002 Chevrolet blazer SUV. It is a good car, runs, and has served us well for many years. The biggest problem I have with it is that, due to age, I worry about any problems we may have with repairs. Last year, several things went wrong at once; the water pump and electrical system needed replacing, at no small cost.
They run. Forever, solid body.
It is very reliable, sturdy in the snow, drives and handles like a car. Enough seating for 4 adults. The back seats fold down for more cargo area. Easy on gas. This is my 3rd blazer, I always look for a better one. When I have to buy a different one. I have hit a steer and a deer with 2 of them and was not injured.
Maintain it properly. Easy 4x4 settings.
Love this car. Comfort while driving is top-notch. CD player and radio work great. Easy 4 wheel drive operations. Roomy trunk but could be used as a 3rd row seat in my opinion. If maintained properly this vehicle should last many years! The most frequently changed items are just oil/oil filter, and brakes!
Nothing else to talk about the car.
I is not a reliable car and I have to many problems it dents to quick when u get in a accident cause it is all fiberglass. It has plenty of room in the car. It has a CD player, the back seats fold down. And it holds big. Items. Too many scratches it drives well but not good for long drives.
