1989 Chevrolet Blazer Tahoe 4.3L V6 from North America
A reliable, tough vehicle, that is nice to drive
Engine spun a main bearing at 158000 miles. It still ran, even with that problem!
Had to replace the ball joints, lower control arm bushings, idler arm and pitman arm, because my tires were wearing out badly on the outside edges, but those were replaced at approximately 175000 miles.
CV joint boots need replacing again, but I do take this vehicle off road a lot!
Vehicle was stolen, so I had to replace all the glass except for my side mirrors, and my driver's side door glass. I also had to replace my starter, alternator, battery, speakers, and radio. Thanks a lot car thieves!
Vehicle was broken into so I had to replace my radio...again! I also had to replace my entire dashboard, because the radio mounts were broken off completely. Also, I had to replace the driver's side door glass, which completes the replacement of the glass.
Someone backed into my driver's side door, making a dent. I was able to pull out the dent on the door, but the rocker panel is still dented, and probably always will be.
An old couple backed into my passenger's side door, so now my doors match.
The seats are in great shape, but for long trips, they're not too comfortable.
This has been the most reliable car I've ever owned. It's still running strong after 17 years.
All the running gear; transmission, axles, transfer case, is all original, and still running great!
It has the off road package, which is all the skid plates and some other smaller things. This vehicle is a great off road vehicle! I have taken it over some very difficult jeep trails, in Arizona and Colorado, and it does great!
The original console was too short, so I replaced it with a new style tall one.
I added the overhead console from a 1994 Blazer which is a nice addition, and easy to do.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
