Review

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.


Favorite Features

4x4.2 dr. Power wd. Keyless entry. Great paint. Not too big and not too small. Comfy for long trips. Stock speakers when I bought it were awesome as well. Tinted back Windows.


Suggested Improvements

the wind tosses it easily. the dashboard cover is the WORST to get off. brakes could be better

I just got my Blazer in November '08. It has 162,200 miles on it and runs great! The only problem I had was the battery was loose, but it was easily fixed. Other than that, I lovev my Blazer.

Review

This vehicle was amazing when i first purchased it. But then it went downhill from there. Once one thing broke down. Then another. I had parts quitting on me one right after another. I have practically replaced all major parts. Getting ready to replace the alternator.


Favorite Features

Has gotten me through the horrible winters in Michigan


Suggested Improvements

Horrible layout for under the hood. Make better parts that last!

Review

Purchased the truck new and in 12 years have driven 28,100 miles. I had to replace the alternator at 20,000 miles and upgraded the brake system with drilled and slotted rotors and high performance pads. Now the brakes are great. My 2nd battery died last nite. I needed to fix the leaking oil lines which also leaked in my 1994 Pontiac Gran Prix. Other than the above listed problems the truck rides great and has good acceleration, confort, looks and reliability.


Favorite Features

Very comfortable especially on long trips. Paint is still in great shape and reliable.


Suggested Improvements

Original brakes needed upgrade. Interior has too much plastic (cheap looking).
