1999 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV
I bought this vehicle used with 23,000
miles. Had a few minor repairs made
under warranty (ticking noise in
spedometer, rear glass defog,
transmission coolant hose leak). Now at
68K miles. All is fairly well except
intermittant driver window failure and
occasional oil drip at hose. Biggest
problem is electronic 4WD sometmes
fails to engage. "Service 4WD" light
comes on. Not had it checked out yet.
Worked about 50% this winter. Also,
cruise control stopped working about
10K miles ago. It's not the fuse. All
else has been good.
Logical, well layed out interior dash.
Comfortable seats. Good power from 4.3L
engine. ABS works well. I don't drive
gently and she's holding her own.
Rear headrest can pinch fingers when
folding down seats. Slide switch for
rear wiper is akward to use. Bro-in-law
has a '98 with similar 4WD problem. May
need to look into mechanism reliability.
