Summary:

Good if it has a larger engine and better A/C

Faults:

Nothing serious, like the driver's window wasn't working like 2 times. Has been serviced so is now working properly.

Seats have started to tear off (probably because they are assembled in Indonesia).

Air conditioner has been serviced many times, and yet, it is still working like a fan =(

General Comments:

This heavy car with almost a ton in weight. Runs pretty good.

However, it comes with only 2000cc DOHC in my home country. I found it is not fast enough even when compared to a Toyota Kijang, which has only 1800cc.

Also, the air conditioner is not cold enough like any, which is pretty crucial in tropical countries like mine.

Nevertheless, the cabin interior is good. There is wood panel for the dashboard, leather seats, and navigation devices (sort like a compass and surrounding temperature).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2000cc is way undersized for a SUV of its size, in America the Blazers of the era came with the 4.3 Liter (4300cc) engines which is very good size for the Blazer.

Yep, I also found this car is underpowered with only 2.0 litres, but hey, Indonesia is nowhere the same as the U.S. We've got traffic jams everywhere, few worthy main roads, even toll highways are also jammed and that happens everyday. You will need like 45 minutes to reach 15 kms. I mean, seriously, I would cry if I owned a 4.0 litre car in Indonesia.

Please be corrected, it is 2200cc instead of 2000cc. Still underpowered, but my Blazer is able to go for 160kmh.
