2004 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
This SUV is quiet and comfortable. The front bucket seats are soft and very comfortable. GM improved the engine design over the years and my 04 has port fuel injection which helps the throttle response and mileage. Power is adequate. The 4 speed auto tranny is well proven being developed in 1997. It has electronic control. I added a tranny oil cooler to extend life. The car has good visibility. I am impressed with the under carriage fiber glass covers, which will be useful for keeping snow off critical parts although they will not offer the protection of steel components. The Billstein shocks are outstanding! Front brakes with ceramic pads and dual piston nice with ABS! Average stereo. Buy!!
4 WD - Well proven power train - outward view is good. Seats are comfortable. Good buy on the used market. Full frame SUV - excellent jacking points. Billstein shocks and ABS are a nice touch. Nice trap door on the front skid to allow access to the oil filter. 2003 and newer are port fuel injected.
The steering column makes it difficult to change the plug on the middle cylinder on the drive side. Be sure to install a platinum long life plug. It took me over one hour to change one plug. Be aware that you need to use only Dexcool antifreezze as there have been issues with mixing antifreeze.
2004 Chevrolet Blazer LS Rwd 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
This is my 3rd vehicle ever and my first chevy and suv. I am so pleased with this vehicle i have considered moving into it. Its the perfect size for someone like me afraid of bigger SUVs (for now anyway). Its very hip and stylish inside and out. I got a great deal on it. Like I said i have never driven a Chevy but i am confident in thier quality and dependability. I am a happy Blazer owner and would serioulsy recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a fun and reliable suv.
My favorite feature would have to be the rear folding seats. It makes a trip to the drive in movie theater that much more fun!
The only area that concerns me is the gas mileage. With gas prices rising everyday, a more fuel economy engine would be great. Even still, I am coming from a small Volkswagen and I knew gas would disappear faster in the Blazer but I got it anyway because I believe in Chevy.
2004 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme Rwd 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
I was surprised Chevy could pull something like this out of their minds. I enjoyed it from the second I drove it off the lot. Driver functions in ease with radio station changing to finding a spot to park.
Going to Home Depot and even though there is a cart in front of the parking space I still and park it there and take the cart to shop. Maneuverability was incredible and the shifting was smooth as silk. I enjoyed the ride quality due to the suspension. Fiancée loves the SUV also which was an A+
