Summary:

Not too bad

Faults:

Well, I if it is one thing that I can say about Chevrolet is that I like the products, but some of the weirdest crap goes wrong with them:

What I mean is that while I have had my fair share of Chevrolet problems, and have only owned 2 my in my life, I still love the products.

Anyhow, my problem is this... and I am not sure how many other people have had this problem, because I have not been able to find people with it, and from what I hear it is quite expensive.

I have tilt steering in my 1991 blazer 4x4 2 drive and this tilt steering was fine when I first bought the car, but now the tilt steering works fine, but the end of the steering column with the steering wheel on it is really sloppy, I have no clue what to do.

Summary:

A great car for someone who enjoys driving in daily activities or mudding up on the mountain

Faults:

I ran off the road after hitting ice and had to replace the ball joint in the front. I also had to get an alignment for the tires after replacing the ball joint. A good tire alignment can do a lot for your handling.

The backseat passengers rarely get heat though.

General Comments:

I love this car, it fits the body so well. The leather really makes a difference, but that goodness it has air conditioning in the summer.

Overall I truly enjoy driving this car every day. I love to get in it and just drive because it handles great, especially after my tire alignment it doesn't pull at all, straight as an arrow. The gas mileage isn't too splendid, but it makes up for it in many ways. You can tow anything practically. Also, I've gotten stuck many times in the mud and been able to get myself out with the 4x4 capacities. The car was well maintained by the previous owner. It's on it's second owner and it will remain like that!

Distance when acquired168000 miles

Summary:

Like a rock

Faults:

Bad valves and piston rings on one cylinder due to previous owner failing to fix oil leak or maintain proper oil level.

Fuel injectors worn out.

Radiator leaks.

Steering column loose.

High beams inoperative.

Brake system requires service.

Rear window doesn't latch.

Rear defogger is inoperative.

General Comments:

With all of the mistreatment the previous owner (s) gave it, this vehicle has every reason to collapse into a heap of slag. Even so, it starts every day to take me to work.

4X4 is a blessing.

Very fun to drive in snow.

The motor may run on 5 cylinders, but still can (and has) towed a Dodge Dakota without a grunt.

Summary:

This is one of the best older Sports Utility Vehicles out there today

Faults:

I broke the front axle being stupid and showing off.

Had a small amount of trouble with it staying properly ailigned.

Had a few rust spots that appeared later on, but they were no trouble to have fixed.

General Comments:

My dad bought this vehicle from a friend of his who had totally rebuilt it after someone had totaled it. In 97 I bought it off of my dad for $2000 and it was the best vehicle that I ever had. I drove it to school and football and wrestling practice everyday in high school, and took it to college 6 hours away from home where I drove it everyday to class and football practice and never had to do anything other than standard maintenance on it.

Summary:

Powerful, reliable, and a great tool for the sports enthusiast

Faults:

Fan belt snapped. (-22degrees F)

Water pump replaced.

General Comments:

What a great truck! It starts every time and has never left me stranded.

The truck has seen hundreds of miles on dirt and sand. The 4x4 is always able to get out of the worst mud hole or sand bed. Pull the 4x4 lever into Low and get ready to climb some extremely steep roads.

I ski about 50 days per year. The truck has gone through some incredibly harsh weather. It starts the first time, every time, even when the temperature is negative 22 degrees F. Navigating through 18" of powder is handled with ease.

The headlights are very poor for off highway use, so I installed some Hella 500 Driving Lights. I mounted them on the bumper and their power is phenomenal.

The heater is less than adequate. For cold weather operation an additional back seat heater should be installed to keep rear passengers from complaining.
