2002 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Was told not to purchase this vehicle, but did so anyway. I live in a snowy cold climate so this SUV has been great so far. 4WD didn't work the week after I bought it, but was inexpensive to repair, only needed a $70 actuator cable. Also the engine light came on. The garage said it was the coolant thermostat, even though it didn't appear I needed one. Changed it for the $13 it cost just to get the engine light off. In cold climate this this truck runs better with synthetic oil and really good plugs and wires. A bit of rattle here and there in the interior, seat reclining handle is stripped, usual and inexpensive problems/annoyances. Overall this is a great and fun SUV to own!
4WD, folding seats good for storage and sleeping/short camping trips. Auxilary plugs are nice to have. Small things like the rotating reading lights, storage, etc.
Better gas mileage. Less rattle in the interior/insulated panels. Less plastic in the console.
