Chevy Blazer is a joke
By Mike Reis on

1997 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

If you enjoy going to the repair shop, and being without your car for extended periods, this is the car for you. I treated my Blazer with kid gloves and performed regular maintenance. But it always broke down. Major repairs included the transmission, suspension, alternator, exhaust, and more. To add insult to injury, I had purchased an extended warranty. The only "guarantee" was that Chevy service would hassle you every time you brought it in and make you wait weeks at a time. Gas tank is far too small for such as guzzler, and the stereo broke three times to boot. Fun to drive, but it was in the shop so often, I'm not sure.

Favorite Features

The look and the feel. Rides like a car. AWD is effective.

Suggested Improvements

Just about everything performance- wise. Put reliable mechanical parts in the car, and honor the extended warranty, which is as much of a joke as the truck itself is.
