My S Blazer is an 88'. It has the
2.5L 4 cyl., Manual trans, and 4.11
gears. Put simply this car Damn
reliable. In 16 years the only
problems have been paint peeling
(common ailment of late 80's chevys),
a water pump, a battery, a heater
core, some tires & gas. Not a refined
SUV, but UTILITY should be in all
caps. Never lets me down and despite
it's 88 HP engine, easily hauls four
adults, or 1500lbs of cargo.
I love the boxy look, especially with
five spoke rims! Reliability is great.
I wish dad had talked mom into the V6
and automatic... Oh well, it's my
work truck anyways.
