1996 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV


Review

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


Best Features

I love that it gives you the temp. outside and what direction you are heading. The stereo system works great. I love all of the compartments in it to put things like Cd's, Sunglasses, etc,.


Worst Features

None

Review

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!


Best Features

motor reliability


Worst Features

motor efficiency and power, and build quality...GM must raise the build standard to stay competitive which is not happening

Review

I bought this car when it had about 168,000 miles on it. I needed a beater car to get back and forth to work..and trust me its a beater. I have had nothing but issues with it since I bought it. I had to replace the wheel bearings w/hub assembly, shocks (front and back), brakes, thermostat (twice), and now I am having major issues with the coolant system and the access tank running dry.


Best Features

Having four wheel drive is great in the winter time for where I live.

Review

I owned a 96 Chevy Blazer 4x4 and I beat the crap out of it, I got it stuck and almost flooded it and almost flipped it and have been thru many a trail or mud pit. But the thing is a mechanical mess! Its hard to modify not meant for off roading in any way, I went thru 2engines in 160k miles and will never buy a Chevy suv again.


Best Features

comfort and power


Worst Features

everything especially my 8mpg observed mileage
