I love my baby! It has been the best
vehicle that I've ever owned. I hate
to part with it, but I managed to have
to bad deer collisions within one week,
and they are totalling my baby! Get
one if you can.
4.3L High Output engine, could haul big
boats, campers, and tractors without
struggling. Very comfortable interior
I can't find anything wrong with it
other than it is gone now.
Bought this SUV 11/96 used with 26,000
miles. Reliable up until 68,000,
nothing but major problems since! Had
to rebuild the transmission, manifold,
fuel injection, muffler(twice), O2
sensors(more times than can mention).
After 90,000 miles power just doesn't
seem the same and no one can figure out
why?? Side view mirrors break off too
easy (use metal instead of plastic).
Power windows break down often and are
pain to fix. When it is running good
it is great (bumpy ride, however) but
overall wish we had never bought it
(got SUV fever in the mid 90's)...
Overhead console nice. Looks real
sporty. Has good power (up to 90,000)
Scary to brake hard in! Fuel injection
system stinks. Transmission needs
I have driven this vehicle for the past
100,000 miles with no problems other
than normal wear items such as brakes
and shocks. The interior still looks
new and the paint is still glossy.
I am replacing it only because I want
more towing power for desert trips.
4 wheel drive on the fly is great
especially when it rains.
Front side door panels could be
attached better. Mine had to be
reinforced with additional screws to
stop them from rattling. GM would not
fix with the extended warrantee.
The Blazer has cost twice as much to
fix it as we paid for it. 2 motors, 1
tranny, AC compressor, catalytic
converter, O2 sensor, water pump, ball
joints, radiator, various electrical
faults and much much more. It needs
constant attention every time you fix
something it breaks somewhere else. To
make it worse the trim shakes rattles
and squeaks over every bump.
It is surprisingly good in snow.
Acually do some reliability testing
before you release it on the public -
it isnt acceptable.
