Reliable Family Car — i like this car a lot. it is east to handle, and can get you where you need to go. it can tow a boat or trailer, and can get you through the snow. it is also really reliable for its age.

Keeps Going And Going And Going — I have had this truck for over 6 years and it has been comfortable, great on gas mileage, had a smooth ride. I have packed 3 large suitcases, camping and fishing gear, dog stuff, snacks, blankets and pillows in the rear compartment and it fit well and still had power to go thru the mountains.

Pros

There's a reason you see so many on the road...they just keep going. Excellent cargo room, and comfortable. Though a smaller SUV it is roomy. Back seats fold down to make more room. Great fuel economy. Handles well.

Cons

Has had problems with transmission; but already replaced mine so all is good now.

Keeps On Going And Going And Going — May not have a fancy audio system, or nifty lights as it is older, but if you want a roomy, comfortable SUV this would be it. Great on gas, and has a smooth ride. Can pack the whole rear compartment and still have a smooth ride and room for 5.

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.

Gas mileage

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.

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

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.

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.
