Bought my Blazer 2 years ago used. Buying it used, from an elderly woman I expected problems. Had to replace brakes and 2 rotors and water pump. From age, and not being maintained. Since then just the brake switch, heating core and a new distributor cap. Has 156,000 miles. Drive it to school and home all the time (130 miles) been off roading plenty. Great 4x4 for its size. With the right maintenance I feel anyone can keep any car running good. Its still as red as any 09 red car. No fading. Oh. The ac compressor doesn't work, but I prefer the Windows down anyways.

Well when I fist got it I thought oh man im in heaven. All the power I ever wanted but not too much. A good 4X4 for being so new. But just as it built up my hope it let me down time after time. So I'm saying forget the bowties.

I bought this car four years ago and have had nothing but trouble. The air conditioning system is completly broken and stopped working three months after I bought it. I have replaced the radiator and thermostat twice. The brakes have always been difficult, and the transmission is slipping. The passenger seat recliner no longer works, and the rear door gets jammed all the time. It eats up gas and is constantly running hot.

We bought this car after almost a month of hunting. With two small children it was not my first choice of vehicles, but I have grown to love the roomy interior and reliability. Plus we constantly get compliments on the how nice it looks. Now that we are hunting for another car we first check out the other Blazers on the lot.

I love my blazer! I have had it for
about 6 months! Althought the engine
blew because it was wrecked before and
the dealer did not flush the fluids, we
replaced it and i love it more than
anything! I feel very safe in it!
Although i wish it had power door locks
and power windows I love it!

This vehicle was the poorest bult automobile I
have ever owned. Since puchase date(Oct.
1999) I have replaced TWO, yes two
transmissions (first at 72k, second at 94k). Each
one falling just out of warrenty coverage of
course. I have also replaced TWO, yes two
radiators (first at 62k, second at 115k). Not done
yet, oh no, not by a long shot. The air
conditioning worked for the first two months I
owned the vehicle. Afok
BEST ADVICE_DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE!
