1998 Chevrolet Blazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD


All in all, I've had this vehicle
since late 1997, and haven't had too
much grief with it... It goes through
an idler arm every 20K miles (I'm
going on #5), but that's to be
expected when you get a car ride on a
truck frame. Had to replace a master
cylinder and torn seat leather under
warranty. After warranty
needed new brake booster (a pain to
install, but did myself) for $200, $30
belt tensioner, new shocks all around,
rotors only once and eventually will
need a new fuel sending unit. Really
can't complain... gave me lots of
dependable service including some off-
road and emergency responses.

Best Features

Nice fit and finish. Outstanding ride (like a Town car). Good looks and decent value for the price. ABS/4WD helped me avoid more than one accident.

Worst Features

Could be easier to work on(getting the shroud off the engine is a pain, it's difficult to run wires (alarm, antenna, etc.) and the brake booster requires advanced yoga to get to (3 easy-to-get nuts, and the last behind the steering column with 1/2 inch of clearance!)
