1995 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America
Very reliable, but I am pretty nice to it
I towed a 5000 lb boat quite a bit when it was new, leading to replacing the transmission at 150,000 miles. I put on a lot of highway miles. My tires last 100,000+. Replaced brakes & exhaust once. Replaced the fuel pump twice; cooling system twice.
I used synthetic oil since day one and only change it every 25,000 miles. It only uses 1 quart between oil changes.
My only problem at present - 4WD light goes on when you push the button, but does not engage in lo or hi. I changed the solenoid under the battery, but still no 4WD. It makes vacuum and clicking noise like it is engaging, but does not. I would guess something inside the transmission is amiss & I will need to give it to a dealer to fix.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
