I purchased the Blazer new in 1999; it
now has 79,000 miles on it. The plastic
seat handle on the driver seat broke
off in the first 5000 miles. I use the
vehicle to drive to and from work and
normal city driving, it has not been
used for towing or any off road. In the
last 10,000 miles the transmission has
been replaced ($3300), the air
conditioning compressor was replaced
($700) and the Heater coil was replaced
($700). The heater coil is located in
the dash board, which required the
removal of the dash board to replace
it. The only saving grace is that I
purchased an extended warranty on the
vehicle at the time of purchase.
It is easy to get into and out of. Good
power to get on freeways.
Better Engineering. Improve the over
all quality of the entire product.
