1998 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3L from North America
Good vehicle for us
Water pump failed at 65,000.
Right around the same time, the windshield wipers worked erratically. When the "mist" was used or cleaning the windshield with the fluid, they would not shut off.
Alternator failed at 80,000.
Battery went shortly after that. (Expected)
I use this vehicle to tow my tent trailer and utility trailer, which it does so with ease. I have installed a transmission cooler to combat extra heat.
It's fun to drive, has plenty of power when merging and passing.
The Blazer is comfortable and provides ample room for my family.
Fuel economy is only middle of the road - I'd say it has the power of a small V8 but gets the same mileage as one also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
