A nice small SUV
Transmission slips sometimes, jumps from drive to overdrive and back a lot.
Will not shift into overdrive if the weather is 40 Degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
Poorly designed braking system.
Extremely poor fuel economy around town, OK on highway.
The performance of this vehicle is better than I expected.
The blazer handles very nicely. The ride is quiet and comfortable.
The fuel mileage is good on the highway, but around town is the worst I have ever seen on any vehicle I have ever owned.
I estimate 5-7 mpg around town, this is with a tuneup, properly inflated tires and taking it easy, as in not flooring it and driving fast.
15 MPG on highway at best.
The brake system is poor, when compared to other vehicles I own. I have replaced front and back, everything and still the brakes are poor. Not a good design I suppose.
The interior is nice and comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
