great machine - i've owned this car longer than any
By chevyonlyfon on
1997 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV
This has been the most enjoyable car I have ever owned. i usually et rid of cars around 5 years - because they are uncomfortable or just not pleasureable any longer.
This car i have never tired of is so comfortable and ergonomic
- i have yet to find a car that makes me feel at such ease driving - minus the poor breaking.
The reliability has been nothing short of astounding . though i have put some into repairs.. 400 for an ignition switch - 700 for a fuel pump. i spent 55 bucks for a wiper motor - which later was reimbursed for under recall.
and i did have the dex cool problem- cost me 141 bucks to replace the radiator - 1300 $ in 14 years.. amazing..
nice sound system - nice ride. which rides as well as the day i bought it 14 years ago.
good gas milage - gets as good gas milage as my 07 nissan altima 2.5 s
rated at 26-35mpg( no the nissan dosnt get that ) its gets a couple more than the blazer 16-22 is what i get..ac-on going into the wind loaded car.
make the beautiful and functional dog ear mirrors stronger so they dont fall off the doors aftrer normal use. . make the fuel pump easier to access so it doesnt cost so much to replace - make it cheaper too.. stick to the basics - dont play games with coolant that has been used for decades..
