1996 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD


These Blazers have problems. Cooling problems, engine problems, 4wd problems. They are expensive to fix. Spent over 2000 dollars in 2 months on the cooling system. Almost all Blazers build up coolant sludge, and the cooling system immediatly starts to break down. Not worth it. Do yourself a favor and buy another car. The used sale price may be enticing, but the repairs are ridiculous. It's impossible to work on this car! Almost impossible to change the spark plug wires, and impossible to change the spark plugs. The drivers side has a steering rack running right by the plug, thus you can't get in there with a wrench.

Best Features

Exterior is a classic design, and still modern looking. It's a pretty SUV. It is very spacious. Seats are extremely comfortable.

Worst Features

Don't buy this car. The coolant system. The Dexcool. The 4WD, the interior belongs in a museum because it's a perfect example of 1990's GM.
