Favorite car, ever.
By B. Lennon on
1998 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought this car used off dealer lot with 36,006 miles on it. I have experienced no significant problems with it other then routine maintenance. In fact I went to change the brake pads at 50K miles and could find almost no wear! The vehicle is solid and well built, no sqeaks rattles or annoyances. The IP is well laid out and convenient, not fanciful just functional. I especially appreciate the handling of the car, well balanced and fairly light driving for a truck, very similar to rear wheel drive cars from sixties and seventies, if you go back that far! It handles exceptionally well in ice and snow (Michigan), and I only engage the 4wd to keep the transaxle lubed! All in all a great car!
The ride, the ride and the ride! Smooth and comfortable for long hauls but quick enough for normal driving. Fuel economy isn't bad either 24 mpg highway. Also, great for hauling stuff e.g. lumber, freezers, washers etc. the heavier the load, the better the ride!
