1987 Chevrolet Blazer S10 2.8 V6 TBI from North America
The most versatile, fun, cheap, good looking, tough vehicle ever!
Emergency brake pedal broken.
Passenger side window falls off tracks.
Rear tailgate handle broken.
Exhaust manifolds leaking.
Turn signals don't work.
Starter doesn't engage sometimes.
Flywheel cover fell off, and the noise sounded like the engine had no oil pressure.
Air doesn't come out of vents, only floor and dash.
I love this truck! I have always owned lots of S10's in the past, but have come to the conclusion that I don't have enough use for the trucks bed. I got the 2 door S10 Blazer with 4WD and a 5 speed (rare), and it's the best vehicle I have owned!
The engine is strong and reliable, and the transmission shifts smoothly. The 4WD engages flawlessly, and it's hard to get this truck stuck in mud or snow! It's so fun to go off roading with it on the fire trails.
The interior is spacious, and it's a very simple and well thought out layout of the controls. The bucket seats are very comfortable, and the rear seat is huge! Plus it folds down flat, so I can put all kinds of crap back there. The truck still has the factory stereo, and it honestly sounds really good for an 87.
I have all kinds of cool upgrades planned like tinting out the windows, Flowmaster exhaust, stereo, speakers etc.
If you come across a S10 Blazer with a 5 speed, don't wait on buying it, because you will not be disappointed.
There are some things wrong with it as mentioned above, but these trucks are easy and cheap to fix, and the problems are usually very minor odds and ends.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
