I basically agree with all the positive comments about these series ('95-'04) Blazers. I've driven quite a few vehicles in my life and this second hand, high mileage Blazer I bought continues to impress. Mine has been reliable, so far. Original exhaust, 210,000 miles.
2 wheel drive. Improves steering, handling, ride & weight. The machine to get for a vehicle that lives on streets & highways. I too, enjoy the split rear window, tailgate feature, giving way to a large, useful cargo area. Well thought out.
Nothing to say here, the series, and Blazer, is no more. I can only go by my '97. The front seats are a little small, but still somewhat comfortable. The 2wd version is a simpler machine, meaning more reliable.
