My dad and i have owned a 1998 Chevy Blazer since 2003, bought it with just over 60,000 miles on it.
It has been the best truck we have ever owned, other than wear and tear items we have not had to replace anything major.
It currently has 142000 + miles and it is running like a champ with many years to go.
If people would take care of their cars they wouldnt have much to bitch about, i just had to change the ORIGIONAL ball joints and some other bushings at 140000!
Brakes, tires and other wear items are not the cars fault its the way people drive!
I have towed cars, boats, and my landscape trailer with my blazer with out fail for 9 years.
