As a student, I can't afford to waste money on repairs. So far with my Blazer, I've only had to replace the wiper module($60). Everything else is running perfect at 53,000 miles. I do some city driving, but mostly highway and can get over 20 mpg if I drive it easy. Sometimes I haul friends around and I've never had complaints with the interior space or cargo area. 4X4 is nice to have in the winter time.
Nice power for 20 mpg. Body styling is attractive, especially with running boards. comfortable interior reliability, not once has it failed to start on the first turn of the key.
For being 190 horsepower, it doesn't accelerate all that great. Maybe a larger back seat.
