Love My Chevy Blazer — Never had a car get over 200,000 miles on it before and still run like it's almost brand new. Maybe the constant oil changes make the difference, but I have been hard on this car at times and it just keeps going and going. Love it, just wish it got better gas mileage.

Pros

Good driver

Cons

accesory systems prone to fail

4,895

Still Decent — Powerful motor. 4x4 had issues from day 1. I didnt like the automatic climate contol. Never really got the temp right and i just swapped from hot to cold alot. Too many sensor for stupid stuff like lights and crap. Just annoyed me more than anything. Defrosting mirrors was pretty cool tho. Overall still not bad, I just like simpler things. NEVER attempt the ball joints...

Pros

4WD, Soft Suspension, Good Seering, Looks Good

Cons

Front end parts are weak, Gas Guzzler

Definately A 4 Star Of 5 Great Besides The Problems Mentioned. — Alright this car is Beast in the snow and bad terrain. The bad part is that the 4wd sticks, the car goes through Front end parts, and is not gas efficient. otherwise it looks nice and it performs well. I would tell people to get this car if they want a cruiser. Some of the options in aftermarket parts can make this a really fine ride.

Work and play

Cons

Smaller then a truck

For A Starter Vehicle This Is Great. I Can Do 85 Around Most Corners With The Wider Wheelbase. — i like the fact that i can fit about 800 - 1200 pounds of tools in the back of the truck. And it only cost me 3500. I have alot of fun offroading in it. And for work it gets me into alot of places normal cars couldnt get.

Pros

Drives Great!  4X4 is a lot of fun. Feels solid.  4.3 vortec engine runs like a top.

Cons

Had to replace the sun shell in transmission...known problem with tranny.

Solid Little Suv Built For The City Or The Trails. — The truck is big enough to fit five adult in comfortably, but small enough to not absolutely crush the bank account on gas. The 4.3 vortec engine is surprisingly strong for a V6 and supplies more than enough torque for off-roading fun. I was disappointed that the transmission broke at 188,XXX miles...especially since its a known issue GM should have probably fixed via a recall. But if that's the only real issue I have, then no big deal.

Fun to drive and take you any where

Cons

Gas mileage

25

Fun To Drive And Get It If You Got Money For Gas — Fun to drive espically in the winter time. Easily gets sideways even for the little 4.3. Although the gas mileage sucks its been alot of places and it always filled with fun times. Your only allowed to have 5 legally in there but ive managed to fit 10 in it with 2 12"s and amp.

Great Little 4x4 — Awesome SUV this is my second blazer, first one was a 97' LT 4X4, never had any problems with either of them. would buy another. Goes through the rough Iowa winters with ease, bad this is it likes to eat brakes.
