The Blazer runs great, I live in Michigan and the brutal cold weather doesnt hurt the car, it runs like a champ. The car is in great condition, No rust on it at all, the paint is still on, With no chips!. I would recommend this car to anyone
who's looking to buy a new used SUV

this small unattractive suv is suppose to be more fuel efficient then the suburban, but this is not the case...its certainly not more reliable. transmission replaced at 120k, fuel pump at 150k, ac compressor at 160k, but thats it, so reliability isn't too bad. today the mileage is 215,000. though the paint is fading and the windows leak when it rains, the motor ignites and runs as it did at 90k miles, not too shabby!

I bought this '96 Blazer new and have found it to be very reliable. It now has 150,000 miles on it,and yes, I've had to put some money toward repairs, but overall it has been a very good vehicle and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It still runs great and it has never made me walk. It's very comfortable and the body is holding up nicely. It's been a great car!

I had a Toyota 4x4 for 12 years before
this vehicle, and I am looking at
Toyota again. We have put to much
money into this 6 year old vehicle (AC
compressor, Heater core, Battery,
alternator, Rear latch) all of which
were fine on my Toyota after 10 years.
Not impressed with the workmanship and
the reliability of American(at least

I am a mechanic and this is my wifes
primary vehicle I am amazed these
things sell like they do considering
the common problems I see with them the
cooling system is a major problem which
GM denies they have also used faulty
materials in the manufacturing such as
the transmisson dipsticks and tubes
that are very prone to rust at this
point in time I have no desire to own
any more GM vehicles
