98 Blazer a mixed bag

ReviewBasically, the Blazer is a good car.
For the most part reliable. One bad
alternator took out the battery and
self destructed at about 48K miles
over warrantee in time, I ate $800
repair while away from home.
At 68K the water pump went, in a heart
beat engine over heated and froze
before we could get the car off the
highway. Melt down to the tune of
$3400. When somethings goes, it goes
suddenly without warning and it is very
expensive. Repairs have been avg about
$600 yr. For a US car that might be
typical, but 6 1/2 years ownership I
think its bad after the warrantee ran
out. Economically not an experiece I
want to repeat.
Best FeaturesSeating is very good, the back seats lay down really flat for a big cargo deck. Sound system is good.
Worst FeaturesBuild an engine to run for 100K mi w/o major break downs. The Japanese, Germans & Sweds do it, why not the US? At about 4 years ownership the plastic knobs on the radio and air vents began to crumber to dust really strange!
