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.
