1990 Chevrolet Blazer Silverado 2dr SUV 4WD


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 for ever.

Best Features

The rugged good looks, great power and torque of the 5.7 L, and the short wheel base.

Worst Features

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.
