Maintained appropriately is a good vehicle
I have had to replace on ball joint from failure to properly grease it. Reading all the other article have been disappointing. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer bought it brand new. I have had no major problems to include all other previously listed ones. It sounds as if most of the people with these problems have failed to have their vehicle properly maintained and appropriate intervals. I have had everything from a ford to a Toyota. I have been satisfied with the performance and durability of the Blazer over all others. I would purchase another and would continue to maintain it at the factory specified intervals or otherwise contact dealer when unlisted problem occur such as door molding and 4 wheel drive sticking. For those who purchased vehicle used, you can't always tell how the previous owner handled the vehicle. Rough handling of the gas pedal will wear a transmission out quicker than anything else. GM designed the shifting for a person who would not give it more than 2 to 2,500 rpm (GM tech - 1995 2001).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
