Well, the Blazer is now 10 years old, I have only had it for 2 of them, but with in the last year I have had to get : All new tires ($500.00) a new radiator system ($1,400.00). I also have put in new shocks,The piece to move the seat back and forward was broke long ago, ... I need a new brake system, as well as a intake manifold gauge. The gas mileage isn't as bad as I expected for having a SUV though.

Overall this is a great truck. The
performance and comfort is exceptional.
The reliability and build quality is
very poor. Some people have not had to
do to much maintainace to their
blazer's; I have. Parts that have been
replaced: Alternator 40K, AC
(Compressor Condenser)50K, Radiator
56K, Water Pump 60K, Ignition switch
and computer 65K. The transmission is
rilled with rust that has been
deposited by the corosion of the
dipstick. Buy at your own risk!!!!!

I can't say enough about the value of
my purchase. I bought from a private
seller and came equipped with a CARFAX
report. For a little over $7,000 I'm
in heaven. Designed for comfort and
frontal visibility the vehicle has
decent pickup and is easy to park and
steer. The only slight drawback would
be with the blind spots while backing
but other than that I'm recommited to
the Chevy Line.
