Sometimes the gas mileage is a con I drive very frequently, Fast.

Worth Fixing Up And Keeping — I like the look of the Blazer, the Interior is very comfortable the back seats fold down to allow more room in the back for hauling large loads. There isn't very many blind spots on this truck it has windows all the way around. My vehicle has only been in the shop once, the gas mileage is pretty convenient for a 4.3 liter V6 engine. The maintenance and repairs were very affordable GM vehicles American made vehicles. The cars acceleration braking and handling are all good I enjoy driving this truck I usually drive fast so I feel pretty safe in it. It is a fun car to drive 4x4 helps when going hunting or stuck on a small muddy road.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Red Suv — guy i got it from dropped in an engine from an older s10. really reliable. it gets between 20 and 22 mpg on the highway. its not so bad. has a really nice sound system with inverted subs and, mids, and tweets to swirl the sound around you in the car. makes castles in the sand (hendrix) ridiculous. this thing is built real tough too. some guys hit me the other day and muffed up their lexus with my tow hitch and i didn't get a scratch.

Piece Of S***!!! — Very unreliable vehicle due to its constant breakdowns. I ended up spending # times what the vehicle was worth on parts within the first three months of owning the vehicle. The 4x4 was also unreliable as it constantly refused to work. It didn't get very good gas millage for its relative size.

Good Suv — This blazer turned out to be a good vehicle. I had to put a new engine in it. The 4.3 ltr I put in it turned out to be a great motor with not to bad gas mileage. I had a small audio system that sounded great in this SUV.

Good Over All Car. Hasn't Broke Down And Can Fit In A Compact Spot — Handling in town and highway is great . Haven't 4wd Braking is good but it's picky on what brand of pads to use. (Noise) Great interior. Nice leather Power is good but its only a V6. Since it's a heavy SUV (5300lbs) would love a V8

A Good Daily Driver, Can Haul Quite A Bit In The Back, Seats Four Comfortably. — Was a very nice vehicle, very comfortable and had decent power, handling was pretty good too, fuel economy was around 21-22 highway with a cold air intake and flowmaster exhaust. Mine did not pull great but was equipped with 3.08 gears, lower gears were available. Reliablitiy is questionable, transmission leaked quite a bit, intake manifold gasket blew, outward luckily, radiator blew, fuel guage was wacky.
