I've tried to love it, BUT
By Sad in San Fran on

Vehicle

1996 Chevrolet Blazer 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Like another reviewer, I really want to love this car, and I have. The size is perfect inside (plenty big enough) and out (not an SUV monstrosity); it handles well and is generally a pleasure to drive. BUT - just had to replace the alternator and tensioner belt, and the bladder for the power brakes, all separate events two weeks after my extended warranty expired. Sad to say, I got my money's worth on the ext warrty too - ABS replacement at 40K; numerous brake issues and recalls; have never been happy with the braking on this car. At this point, I am getting rid of this poorly made vehicle as soon as I have time to buy somethng - no more chevy's for me!

Favorite Features

Perfect size; comfortable seats; solid steering on tight curves (mountain driving); great cargo space

Suggested Improvements

Use parts meant for a heavy, truck like vehicle so they last long enough to put some mileage on the car before everything needs replacing. Poor placement of CD player near shifter
