Poor long term performance

1996 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD


The Chevy Blazer is a staple of the SUV
industry whose body style has not
changed for a number of years; I have
figured out why. Chevy does not want
the consumer to know the number of old
(7+ years) Blazers still remain on the
road in running condition. I have had
consistant problems with the A/C,
radiator and oil system. The oil lines
leak requiring replacement every 2
years ($1200 expense). The engine
light comes on like a movie theater
marque. My average oil change costs at
least $150. If someone must have a
Blazer, my suggestion is to LEASE it.
Do not buy this vehicle. In the long
run, the cost to own it out weighs the
value of the vehicle.

Best Features

4x4 capabilities makes the Blazer a great vehicle for the snow. The cargo capacity is nice as well as the overall vehicle size.

Worst Features

Improved mechanical components for long term performance ... possibly re- engineer parts of the engine such as cool system and oil system.
