Reliable up scale sport utility


Two fuel pumps have been replaced. I've heard this is common on this model. Cost, including labor was about $500.00 each time.

One alternator replacement.

General Comments:

This has been a very reliable and comfortable sport utility.

Gas mileage is poor. I average about 14 city and 18 highway.

The leather seats are good on long trips and the all wheel drive saved the day on a couple of trips over snowy mountain passes.

By the way, this is essentially the same model as the S10 Blazer and the GMC Jimmy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
