1990 Chevrolet Blazer silverado 5.7 V8 from North America


It is a beast, but a blast to drive


The rear differential had to be replaced.

I also got into an accident with it. I snapped a pole, but walked away. The truck just needed a new nose.

Minor things like the heater core and normal wear and tear.

General Comments:

I love my truck.

It is little rough around the edges.

For a large 4800 pound vehicle it has good power.

The seats are very soft and comfortable.

Yeah, you pay more for gas, but the safety of walking away from 75% or more of accidents with anything else on the road is worth it. Plus they are so darn fun. I've never found a funner vehicle to drive, so I personally don't care about mileage much. If I don't want to pay for gas I drive less. You can't say a 4 cylinder is better on gas when you drive 5 times as much because it's so "good" on gas.

An absolute beast


The previous owner; a mechanic, rebuilt the motor at 140,000 miles.

He also rebuilt the transmission at 130,000 miles.

New wiper motors at 170,000 miles.

Rotors and calipers at 160,000 miles.

General Comments:

I love my Blazer.

It rides rough, but I don't mind it.

It's very reliable; only died once due to a short in the ignition.

She doesn't get to 60 in a flash, but she'll take a house with her.

1990 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3 liter Throttle Body Inject from North America


A dependable truck


Replaced water pump, engine after 160000 miles, alternator, starter, radiator, heater core, u-joint, coolant temp sensor. The truck had numerous rust holes repaired and the roof rack screws came off after it falling off of a tow-truck with a canoe on it. Both bumpers bent and suspension re-welded from same incident. Vacuum leak after 390000 miles, replaced intake manifold gaskets. General lack of power, likes to overheat.

General Comments:

Believe it or not, this truck has only broken down on me once when the alternator went. It just won't give up and I plan to drive it right into the ground. It's got rock hard dependability and it won't let me down.

I agree with you completely! My 1990 Chevy Blazer has never let me down! She has 160,000 miles right now, and she's still going strong.

I have a 90' S10 blazer with 180,710 miles on it! All I have had to replace was the alternator. I have rust spots and a huge rust hole, but its still going strong.

I have a 1990 Chevy Blazer with 122,000 miles on her. I had to replace water pump, heater core, oil lines, brakes and exhaust system. There is a lot of rust, but never let me down no matter the weather. She is a rock!

Bought the car used in 1992.

Water pump in 1994.

Re-paint in 1995 (recall).

Heater core in 1997.

Blower motor in 1998.

Alternator in 1998.

Radiator in 1999.

General Comments:

Favorite things: 8 years of near-maintenance-free reliability, lasting style, unbeatable turning radius, and original A/C after 10 years of Texas heat! Perfect size and space for teenager/college student, even now as an older car.

Cons: loud engine, accelerator has always been jumpy, somewhat bouncy ride.

I've heard the new Blazers (1995+) are not as reliable and not as good value for money. Too bad -- I might have bought another one.
