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 have had my K-5 for 10 years and am
finally thinking of trying to find a
replacement (has not been easy). I
have had some problems along the way -
replaced the rear end in '98, new
torque converter in '99, alternator
caught fire in '97 - but in all it has
been a great vehicle. They just don't
build them like they used to. The dash
actually has metal and vinyl, and is
not all plastic like trucks of today.
GM really needs to re-think their
interior design for new models. If I
had the money, I'd think seriously
about restoration, but here
in salt country (Central New York) it
is impossible to keep the body going
The rugged good looks, great power and
torque of the 5.7 L, and the short
The rear gate design really needed to
go. Any problems with the rear window,
like getting frozen in the winter, and
you can't get into the back. Nothing
else comes to mind.
