1998 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America
I love it!
Not sure of the mileage on any of these, but all within the past year.
Windshield wipers on intermittent take a while to turn off. Not bothersome enough to spend $$$. Will eventually though.
Turn signal continuous clicking noise, husband replaced fuse $5 in glove box, continued for a week then stopped.
Loud exhaust, repair shop (not dealer) found no problem.
Loud humming noise, also noted battery draining. Replaced alternator $90 and serpentine belt, humming still sporadic. Husband noted fairly easy to replace alternator compared to full size p/u.
Red coolant is for 5 yr/100,000 miles, beginning to be sluggish at 5 yrs, 88,000 miles, flushed and replaced $90.
Prior to this past year, replaced battery at 3 years, replaced tires at I think 3 years, fuel filter broke from fuel line for no reason. When using the rear wiper, with spraying wiper fluid, it leaks into the back cargo area. Does not leak when it rains and have not been able to pinpoint area of leak.
I have NEVER been stranded in this car and would buy another one, if they still made this size. I plan to keep it 4 more years or so. The problems I mentioned were just a bit annoying, but not enough to get rid of it. My very first car bought brand new and paid off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
