1998 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 from North America
Another example of a very poor engineering
Seat adjust broken.
Leaky oil cooler return lines.
Premature injector replacement.
Bad shifting algorithm on transmission.
Stereo stopped working early.
Windshield wiper mechanism flaky.
Slipping transmission from day one - no one has been able to solve.
Holes punched to mount front end off, so dealer cannot bring the front end into alignment all the way.
Replaced the entire AC.
Replaced intake manifold gasket.
The 4.3L engine is gutless.
Will never buy a GM product again...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree with this and other comments, this is all in all a great example of bad engineering, with the addition of using low quality parts. There has always been something to fix on mine, and at 265000 miles it was time to get a new car.
My 1988 S10 however, has been completely reliable and is now approaching 300,000. I have owned it 17 years, and it's my daily driver.
