I got my Chevy s10 Blazer for my 16th birthday and I haven't had any problems with it the people that I bought it from had all of the original receipts from parts that they had put on they never had anything Major wrong with it just new brakes and oil changes just like any other car I have found that the suv is very fun to drive and comfortable I wouldn't trade it for the world
This is the best vehicle ever produced by humanity. I won't comment on its reliability or performance, as those before me have said enough. It also speaks for itself that I am writing this review in 2016, a quarter century after this vehicle was produced. What I want to comment on is this vehicles character. Not many vehicles can be described as trustworthy, responsive, resourceful, patriotic, resilient, just, responsible, patient, and loyal. But to attempt to describe this vehicle without these words would be like describing Picasso without mentioning his ability to make art, or to talk about Pavarotti without acknowledging his singing chops. This vehicle will not let you down. Not because of the strength and durability of the materials with which it was crafted, but because of its soul. It knows that you need safe, reliable transportation. It knows that providing this transportation is it's role in your family. Like a an older brother, this Blazer will look after you every mile of your journey. The Blazer will comfort you, it will guide you, it will restore you. It will never let you down. 2017 update: Still have the car. Still runs like a dream. Still the best.
Bought the vehicle new and she has never let me down. Original engine and transmission. Only normal maintenance items, water pump, alternator, etc. Survived AAA contractor putting diesel fuel in tank after replacing fuel pump. Completely restored and still capable of pulling any load.
This is the first SUV I've owned. It's a 4X4, 2-door, loaded. I've driven a friend's Blazer 4X4 and fell in love with it, and wanted one. It took me 5-6 months to find one in acceptable shape. I've only owned this vehicle for 3 weeks now, but if someone offered to buy it from me, I'd tell them to jump in a lake (I like this vehicle more than my previous one a 99 S-10 Ext Cab Pick up). If you own an older Blazer, don't get rid of it, you'll be sorry.
I have had this car for 16 years, it has 120,000 miles and I admit it was not as well cared for as it should have been, but I still had no major problems. The car is very well styled, well built,and very reliable. I highly recomend it as the best car in its price range.
