Poor long term performance

ReviewThe Chevy Blazer is a staple of the SUV industry whose body style has not changed for a number of years; I have figured out why. Chevy does not want the consumer to know the number of old (7+ years) Blazers still remain on the road in running condition. I have had consistant problems with the A/C, radiator and oil system. The oil lines leak requiring replacement every 2 years ($1200 expense). The engine light comes on like a movie theater marque. My average oil change costs at least $150. If someone must have a Blazer, my suggestion is to LEASE it. Do not buy this vehicle. In the long run, the cost to own it out weighs the value of the vehicle.
Best Features4x4 capabilities makes the Blazer a great vehicle for the snow. The cargo capacity is nice as well as the overall vehicle size.
Worst FeaturesImproved mechanical components for long term performance ... possibly re- engineer parts of the engine such as cool system and oil system.
