Good Design - Needs Better Execution
By oldcorvettefan on
2004 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
This is my second 4WD, first Blazer.
I really enjoy the easy way it moves
into and out of traffic, and the V6 is
better suited to the Blazer than it
was my old S10.
My biggest disappointment is how
poorly the interior and door panels
fit. The vehicle sounds like the
doors are going to fall off if you hit
a crease in the road just right.
Nothing like our new Malibu Maxx,
which is much tighter.
Easy to drive and maneuver. Seats and
seating position is very good. I
really like the full instrumentation,
especially when compared to the Escape.
GM needs to get serious about their
build quality. Good style, but the
manufacturability of that design
leaves a lot to be desired. If you
want a vehicle without squeaks and
rattles, then you better go elsewhere
(which is really too bad!).
