1997 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 V6 from North America
After reading all the other reviews I'm a little worried about what I got myself into!
I can't really complain I bought the truck pretty cheap. However, I am having a few problems that I thought someone else may have had. First I can't get the dome light in the back to turn off. When I first got the truck the fuse was unplugged & I wasn't able to open the back gate. So we plugged it in & realized why they had it unplugged. Second there is a vibration when driving over 50 mph. The check engine light just came on and flashing transmission codes. I will take it to a shop for that to find out exactly what that problem is. Also the rear wiper isn't working, the fluid will come out, but the wiper won't move. It moved a little bit, but that was it. Is this the motor? Any help is appreciated!!
I haven't had it long enough to form a real opinion on the vehicle. It seems to run good and strong. It is very clean and generally so far I like it other than these few minor problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have recently purchased a 97 Blazer 8 months ago. I have had no problems so far and am keeping my fingers crossed after seeing some of the posts.
It's a great vehicle for towing trailers and handles deep snow really well.
I hope mine is the exception to what seems to be the rule.

I have a 1997 Blazer LT and couldn't be happier with the purchase! It hasn't let me down. I've had it for over a year, and it has 151,000 miles. Best vehicle I've ever bought!
