These cars are great to use as stunt vehicles to be driven off a cliff and explode on impact.
If there was a trophy for the junkiest cars on the market, these would be among the top competitors. I have owned 3 GM vehicles, and after going through numerous adventures I can honestly say that GM builds their cars specifically to break down in various places over and over again, so the owner would be obliged to have it fixed repeatedly. This probably keeps the gm business somewhat afloat through the money invested into parts and labor. for anyone who wants to avoid headaches and frustration, buy Japanese cars that have proven themselves Reliable, Efficient, and Long-lasting,you will be happier

I bought my blazer in 2008, from the dealership, the gas gauge did not work.
The first big investment was the intake gasket that went bad.
It was replaced with a metal gasket, and shouldn't need replacing ever again.
After that, it started acting very strangely...it would be going down the road, and start hesitating, or lose power suddenly.
I went through and replaced plugs, wires, distributer cap and rotor, air filter, gas filter, battery, cat, and exhaust, the fuel pump sounds like it's screaming, it gets terrible gas mileage, and the front dash squeaks.
So far to fix the hesitation issue, i've dumbed a bottle of sea foam in the gas tank, which has helped for now.
