Vehicle1997 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewGreat vehicle til 55,000 miles at which
time things broke one after another.
Luckily, most were warranty items. I
got stuck for the throttle body
($800). Already has had two brake jobs
& 2 batteries. My buddies Jeep
Cherokee will run circles around my
Blazer with better handling & higher
ground clearance. The Blazer was the
best buy for the $ though & luckily I
have a fantastic dealer which was 95%
of the reason I purchased the vehicle.
Turnaround on repairs is same day 90%
of the time. Must get an extended
warranty when purchased new. Despite
the complaints, it was still the best
buy for my $ in 1997, & I'd buy another
today unless I'm towing.
Best FeaturesGreat 4wd. Never has a horsepower shortage. Never been towed either. Always has ability when some failure occurs to be able to drive it in to get repaired.
Worst FeaturesToo low. I scrape skidplates on 4x4 adventures. 1998 & newer are better overall. Dexcool still useless. Flaky steering makes this a poor tow vehicle. A/C ok til outside temp hits 90+ causing the cooling system to run warmer impeding the A/C to properly cool the vehicle interior.
