2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I've had my 2001 Blazer for about 2 years and I can honestly say that it has been a money pit. I've spent over $2,000 in repairs, it is definitely a maintenance item. The GM Dex-coolant clogged the heater core and radiator. I had to replace the radiator and hoses at about 120k. The engine is powerful but sluggish, the tranny slips, the door pins and hinges took a crap this winter, the four-wheel drive no longer works, the ABS and o2 sensors are notorious failures, the car is prone to electronic issues, and the gas mileage is similar to a full size truck. Car handles poorly, the interior plastic rattles, driver door panel is barely hanging on, and the ride is pretty rough.

Best Features

At least the car has been comfortable, although it's a bumpy ride. It's sporty and it is what it is; A cheap 4x4. It's a good beater rig. the 4.3 liter Vortec engine is reliable.

Worst Features

Get a Jeep Cherokee.
