Cheap but gets the job done

1996 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD


This car was purchased brand new 11 years ago and since put 87000 miles on it. It has been fairly reliable throughout these mile. However, on the down side, performance and quality is on the poor side. Maintenance is a real biggy. Since it's American, fixing this car is a hassle thanks to poor design of the engine bay. The major problems that comes up are the fan and alignment issues. Frequently, my coolant tank will get dirty with grime and dirt and needs to be cleaned. Also, I noticed once I have the AC on, the car will sometimes overheat, going past the mid point of the temp gauge. This can be a result of a recall back in 1997 with the fan.

Best Features

ABS (works great in wet conditions), Off-road capabilities, Compact size is ideal in the city, Loads of low end torque (picks up nicely)

Worst Features

Redesign everything from the ground up. This includes the new Trailblazer as well. Chevy trucks fall victim to traditional design and parts. Suspension and handling is a big issue as well as the plastic interior
