I have owned this vehicle for over 4 years and have been very satisfied for the most part. It always starts faithfully and seems to be reliable. I purchased this vehicle from a private party with 134,000 miles on it and have added 40,000 since. I do not know what all has been replaced on it however the only problem I have had is the EGR valve clogging up with carbon. I have removed and cleaned it three times. This has proven successful each time. You do not want to buy this part unless you truly need to for it is very expensive. Over-all I am very pleased and plan to keep it for a long time.

This was my first car and I loved it when it was running. I bought it at 150,000 miles and drove from Oregon to Washington and back every weekend but it was usually in the shop at least three days out of the week I bought it for $3000 and put about $5000 in it in repairs before I traded it in. I loved that car so much it was so much fun to drive but it only got about 12 mpg it was my baby though and I will miss it forever. My advice if looking to purchase one, make sure you have at a backup reliable car while its in the shop and can afford the gas and repairs, it is a very expensive car in the long run but you fall in love with it and justify all the expenses. I don't recommend as a commuter.

I purchased the truck December 2004 for $400 for a truck to beat on and take offroading. It has 160k miles on it and runs great. I repainted it put new plugs in and its like new. I have decided to keep the truck and sell my car. It has been reliable so far. Its got some power to it too. The 4wd has gotten me out of some muddy situations. But the front 2 doors rusted on the bottom whch was a factory defect. And the fuel pump makes a humming noise. The interior is extremely comfortable with the leather.

Overall mechanical aspect of the car is
good. Engine is as good as when I
bought it. In 117,000 miles only had
to replace fuel pump and water pump.
Chevy/GM gets a '1' on a scale of 1 to
10 for quality when it comes to body.
Car started to rust at 28,000 miles and
chevy was not surprised. Car is
garaged kept. Dealership told me there
is a design flaw in 'weep' holes in
front doors. Also design flaw in
tailgate that everytime gate is opened
a little bit of paint wears away.
After 5 years started to rust. Blazers
1994 and older all have this. GM did
replace one of the 2 front doors.

There is only one positive aspect of
this vehicle. It will almost always
come out better than the other car
involved in a wreck. That, however,
does not make it good, not at all. I
have not gone more than one month since
I purchased it without putting it in
the shop. I am about to put my third
set of brakes in it(rotors and all), as
soon as I get the drive shaft replaced,
which broke for no apparent reason. I
think it just got tired. I have been
through multiple alternators, and have
had countless dollars worth of engine
work done to it.

I bought this truck with 36,000 miles
in '98 and have added another 50,000
since then. I have had fuel injector
work done twice but other than that
nothing major. '94 was the last year
for the boxer styling and the body type
dpes look dated now compared to the
softer lines of the '95+ models. 4x4
has come in handy in the snow as has
ABS. Having a trustworthy vehichle
that is paid off is one of lifes great
pleasures, I intend to keep this until
it won't go any more. Each year it
becomes more of a work horse as it's
interior appearance takes on less
importance. Hopefully I will have this
thing knocking around for several more
trouble free years.
