2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
Bought this ZR2 4X4 used (3600mi) because it appeared to be set up to handle back country (skid plates, big tires, upgraded shocks, etc) and offered more room and comfort than CJ style Jeep. Mine is yellow like the picture and has most options. Have had no problems (except a little oil drip) now at 24000mi. Just figured out it has grease fittings on stearing linkage! It is not as tight as my 98 Ford F150. Has performed well in rough conditions. Gas milage never over 20mpg. Tire on back contributes to already dangerous rear vision limits. Back seat entry difficult. Filling gas tank to top needs slow pump speed. Overall I like this vehicle for the Rocky Mountain area where I live.
Bose stereo. Short wheel base. High quality shocks. Skid plates
Improve gas mileage. Use better plastic on trim-the sun ate it up in a year. Lots of squeaks when torqe put on frame in back country. Locking differential
