I purchased my Blazer with 160k on it in march of 2007. I am still in love with this truck. Very reliable. I let my pregnant wife drive it 2,400 miles by her self and didn't have a worry. gas mileage is about 17 on highway and 12 in town. not bad for a truck that old. now i have 190k on it and still find every excuse i can to drive it. still runs strong and lays rubber. if you buy one u wont be disappointed!
unstoppable. Snow, mud, sand it takes it all. wish they still made them like this
I have had my full size for over 8 years. I do not treat it well at all when I drive. I do give it serious maintenance though like oil and drive lube. Living in the north east has rotted the body beyond repair but I choose to keep driving it :). Hard to explain, but the way a short wheel base truck drives is like a car. But with a truck attitude. :) I never want to stop driving this truck. I plan on giving it to my daughter even in another 10 years :). Plz GMC build this one new again. I have near 250000 miles on mine now and the engine wont quit. Way too much to type, but trust me if you drive one you will like it.
Can turn a circle sharper then most small cars. 5.7 liter power! 4wheel drive. Rear wheels have a 3 inch offset so they don't track the front wheels giving it better traction. Its a snow monster. And the radio features are on the drivers side... Your passengers cant reach it
Stronger rear end and frame. Plus the window tailgate feature could be better. Its easy to put in a new rear though :) I did it and i'm no tech. :)
Have own this Blazer since 1990 right off the lot with 15 miles it now has 134 thousand miles and was rebuilt from the ground up in 2007. My father drove it for 18 years. I inherited it and now drive it. Still runs great and is like new. I did have the leak over mirror but with a coat of sealeant it is as good as new.
4 wheel drive, allow me access to our observatory on Mona Kea (mountain).
This Blazer has served us well. We bought it with only 33,000 miles on it, and still love it. It's been extremely reliable, and build quality has held up well on the dirt roads that we live on. The 5.7 L 350 V8 is amazingly quiet, smooth, and powerful. For under 10,000, the Blazer is a relative value even in today's market. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone. I wish that Chevrolet could bring these Blazers back.
V8 Power and Refinement, Retro- interior, Roomy interior, good fit and finish.
I still drive this vehicle daily and
have for 5 years. I bought the vehicle
with 88K on it and the problems
didn't hit until 135k. Then they
The oil cooler began leaking like a

without a problem! It rides and
handles like a dream.
I bought it for $5,500 in 97 and it
doesn't owe me a thin dime. I still
love this vehicle.
I LOVE THE SLIDING SIDE WINDOWS for
fresh air and side access to the back.
This is by far my favorite feature! I
give the overall styling an A++.
I have ever driven in a Buffalo snow
storm. The weight distribution is a
real gem when it comes to traction.
The rear mount tire breaks the rear
window with only a bump, also the
windshield has always leaked over the
rear view mirror.
The heater duct on the driver side
floor burns your calf. The vehicle
needs a stock high volume oil pump and
could use more low end balls.
