You are in the Chevrolet Blazer
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Blazer, GMC Jimmy, SUV
Apr 16, 2001 (6:42 pm)
A word of warning to anyone who lives in upstate South Carolina: DO NOT buy from, or have your SUV or any other GM vehicle serviced by, Dick Brooks Chevrolet Oldsmobile Cadillac in Anderson. I had a situation where they outsourced a rear end repair that they originally misdiagnosed to a transmission shop, claiming they didn't have a qualified tech to do the work (not sure how they would've handled this if it had been a factory warranty repair that they can't outsource). Despite their having done the outsourcing, when issues came up (e.g. expediting parts for their "partner", the transmission joint), they washed their hands of the entire deal, saying that they had "closed their work order" and it was an XXX Transmission issue now. They refused to support me in dealing with Warrantech, a third party extended warranty company which you also want to avoid at all costs. Long story short, I haven't seen my 1996 Blazer LT in twenty days. For what it's worth, this is the second drive train problem in a month, we've had major air conditioning problems, and, oh, I'm out of breath...Don't go to Dick Brooks unless you already had plans to go postal. They care nothing about the customer and offer a lack of service with smirk.

What was the transmission problem? Just had my '97 Bravada at the dealer for replacement of the valve body to fix a common problem with slamming from gear-to-gear during upshifts.

Well, I would like some advice as to where I could take my 96 Jimmy for a little paint job since there are numerous little nicks and spots on my hood and along the bottom edge of the car. All I really want is to cover up those little spots in my red paint. Anyone know the best place to get it done? Thanx.

We are thinking of buying a 1994 Jimmy with 100,000 miles on it from a family member. Does anyone have any thoughts on this year car and in your experience will it last a while longer or are we asking for trouble. Thanks in advance for your help.
#70 of 535 1997 GMC Jimmy - Fuel Injector Problems
Jun 05, 2001 (11:22 am)
I have just paid $1300.00 for the replacement of the fuel injector assembly and fuel injectors on my 1997 4-wheel drive Jimmy. The truck only has 85,000 miles, and has been well cared for. Has anyone else had this problem and did I get took on the price?
