2019 Chevy Blazer problems

Common problems: No car is perfect, and the 2019 Chevy Blazer is no exception. Common problems it has been reported to encounter include electronics issues, transmission problems, engine problems, and steering problems. Chevy has also issued a recall for an issue consumers reported with the transmission start/stop accumulator endcap.

When a vehicle runs into the same problems consistently, consumers begin reporting them to services like the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),, or the Kelly Blue Book.

Due to the number of complaints, it can be hard to tell which complaints are legitimate and which are individual and rare. In this article, we will be discussing the problems reported by 2019 Chevy Blazer owners so you can be aware of them in your purchasing or ownership choices. We will also mention the lemon law and how it can be used to get compensation for the purchase of a defective vehicle.

Common 2019 Chevy Blazer Problems

  • Electrical Issues: Car does not recognize it is in park, false reports about various systems
  • Transmission Problems: Sudden acceleration, problems staying in gear, shuddering while accelerating, failure to stay in park
  • Engine Problems: Engine racing, overheating, engine not turning off, loss of engine power
  • Steering Problems: Reduced steering assist, faulty power steering

2019 Chevy Blazer Electrical Problems

Though there were many reports of electronics problems by 2019 Chevy Blazer owners, the overwhelming majority of them were for the same issue: the vehicle being unable to recognize that it is in park.

When drivers shifted their vehicles into park, the vehicle would display a message on the central infotainment screen that tells them to put it in park, despite the car already being in park. Not raised as often but still mentioned multiple times were false reports about various systems in the vehicle.

2019 Chevy Blazer Transmission Problems

Transmission problems can be some of the more frightening for a vehicle owner to encounter because they undermine the driver’s ability to effectively control the vehicle.

The transmission is responsible for moving power, produced by the engine, to the wheels of the vehicle. This allows it to accelerate and decelerate at the driver’s command.

2019 Chevy Blazer owners reported their transmissions causing sudden acceleration, problems staying in gear, and shuddering while accelerating. Because of how dangerous transmission problems can be, consumers should take them to be repaired as soon as they are encountered.

Chevrolet has issued a recall for missing bolts on the endcap of the start/stop accumulator. These missing bolts can cause this part to leak oil, which in turn can create a fire risk if the oil comes into contact with hot parts of the vehicle. This recall was issued in October 2020, and the NHTSA Recall ID is 20V668000.

    Comments from Chevy Blazer Owners

    2019 chevy blazer complaints

    “We bought our Blazer in 2019 brand new when they came out again. It’s 2022 and we can’t wait to trade it in. The amount of times this car has been in a service department is insanity. AC has gone out twice, electrical work faulty, engine issues. Well over $6,000 out of pocket in a year trying to fix issues. Will never recommend this vehicle to anyone. We were so excited to own it due to the look but it’s trash.”

    “I placed the shifter into the park position & a warning came on the dash stating the car is not in park as I turned off the ignition. The warning on the dash as well as an audible warning. I had to use the key fob to lock the doors. I took the car to the dealership for repairs.”

    “Received repeated message on display ” steering assist reduced, drive with care” Engine races at times and Auto Stop quicks working. Could lead to a crash if steering is restricted due to P0128 code was repeatedly triggered as a fault code. Turned out to be thermostat which is being replaced on thousands of these vehicles. You can search for the message. GM is replacing under powertrain warranty however many vehicles are beyond warranty. This is approximately a $1000 repair.”

    How the Lemon Law Can Help With Your Chevy Blazer Problems

    Most every state has a lemon law designed to protect consumers who purchase or lease defective vehicles, allowing them to file claims against the manufacturer and hold them accountable for selling vehicles that do not perform up to certain standards. To be eligible for such a claim, the vehicle must be repaired during the original manufacturer warranty.

    In California, the lemon law operates on a standard of “reasonable number of repair attempts,” which generally means that a vehicle must undergo two to four repair attempts before it is classified as a lemon.

    The process begins when a consumer identifies a defect and presents the vehicle to an authorized manufacturer dealer for repairs. If the defect remains after the initial repair, additional repair attempts are necessary until the vehicle has undergone a reasonable number of repair attempts. Vehicle owners must document these repair attempts thoroughly, as strong documentation can significantly bolster a lemon law claim.

    Once the vehicle meets the criteria to be considered a lemon, the consumer has the option to negotiate with the manufacturer or take legal action under the lemon law.

    If pursuing legal action, hiring a lemon law attorney is highly advisable and nearly essential for a successful outcome. In California, if the consumer is the prevailing party, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs are paid for by the auto manufacturer, ensuring that the legal representation comes at no personal cost to them.

    Upon winning their claim, consumers are entitled to either a refund or a replacement vehicle. A refund covers the total amount paid for the vehicle. A replacement will be a current-year model of similar make and type. In both scenarios, the manufacturer deducts a usage fee for the period during which the consumer drove the vehicle without issues causing it to be a lemon.
