This is the best vehicle ever produced by humanity. I won't comment on its reliability or performance, as those before me have said enough. It also speaks for itself that I am writing this review in 2016, a quarter century after this vehicle was produced. What I want to comment on is this vehicles character. Not many vehicles can be described as trustworthy, responsive, resourceful, patriotic, resilient, just, responsible, patient, and loyal. But to attempt to describe this vehicle without these words would be like describing Picasso without mentioning his ability to make art, or to talk about Pavarotti without acknowledging his singing chops.
This vehicle will not let you down. Not because of the strength and durability of the materials with which it was crafted, but because of its soul. It knows that you need safe, reliable transportation. It knows that providing this transportation is it's role in your family. Like a an older brother, this Blazer will look after you every mile of your journey. The Blazer will comfort you, it will guide you, it will restore you. It will never let you down.
I own a 1991 Chevy Blazer 4WD for my high school truck, I turned 16 about 7 months ago and I love this truck! Super reliable, great gas mileage. Me and my buddy drove from Binghamton New York to Norfolk Virginia on a full tank of gas, we didnt stop for gas once! Great styling, I think these trucks have great lines to them. All around one of the best trucks Chevy has ever made no doubt.
A reliable good powered Chevy 4.3L V6, I like the cruise and the back seat.
Bought used at 128,000 miles. Engine
blew around 4,000 miles later. The
heater core, water pump, and alternator
all were replaced in first year. OK for
2 more years then at 160,000 miles had
many odd problems: intermittent
stalling, stalling while turning, not
starting at temps below 35 degrees,
rear hatch latch broke, and radio went
dead. New coil and used distributor
fixed starting problem. Still mystified
by stalling. Only paid $2,500 but sank
over $6,000 in maintenance over 3
years. Still running at 168,500 but
ready for a more reliable ride.
4WD comes in very handy in winter,
ample seating and storage space in rear
Improve long term releability of
components like the heater core, which
go bad on all S-10 Blazer's, and don't
block transmission pan removal with the
#@#$% exhaust pipe.
