4wd nice, guzzles gas and breaks often
By Gary on


1997 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD


bought with 45000, since replaced brakes twice, engine, alternator, starter X 2, wiring problems numerous, check engine soon light has been on at least a half dozen times and required many different repairs. The Blazer just turned 100000 and I am having serious transmission problems. I have always loved Chevys, but I doubt I'll ever buy another after this one. The 4.3 is a slug. wife has a Saturn Vue with the 3.5 Honda engine and it will smoke the 4.3 and gets good MPG. Stay away from the Blazer.

Best Features

touch 4wd, sunroof, comfortable seats (front only)

Worst Features

MPG, 4.3 is a dog, too many repairs
