1998 Chevrolet Blazer SUV LT 4dr SUV


Review

The 1998 Blazer is one of the most reliable cars you will own. I own a 4 door LT 2WD. Mine now has over 160,000 miles and it still rides great! Its comfy(it has leather seats with electric adjustment), gets pretty good gas mileage (16-20), and is fun to drive! However, the best part about this car is its reliability. This thing hasn't broken down on me one time in 160,000 miles. It has lasted through many trips, and still works good. It's a great car.


Favorite Features

Comfort, reliability, gas mileage, it has a good engine (can pull stuff good)


Suggested Improvements

The turning radius is not that good, neither is the acceleration

Review

Basically, the Blazer is a good car. For the most part reliable. One bad alternator took out the battery and self destructed at about 48K miles over warrantee in time, I ate $800 repair while away from home. At 68K the water pump went, in a heart beat engine over heated and froze before we could get the car off the highway. Melt down to the tune of $3400. When somethings goes, it goes suddenly without warning and it is very expensive. Repairs have been avg about $600 yr. For a US car that might be typical, but 6 1/2 years ownership I think its bad after the warrantee ran out. Economically not an experiece I want to repeat.


Favorite Features

Seating is very good, the back seats lay down really flat for a big cargo deck. Sound system is good.


Suggested Improvements

Build an engine to run for 100K mi w/o major break downs. The Japanese, Germans & Sweds do it, why not the US? At about 4 years ownership the plastic knobs on the radio and air vents began to crumber to dust really strange!
