I bought my LT Blazer second hand with 82ooo km on it.
I love it as a vehicle to drive, but it hasn't been exactly what I would call a reliable vehicle, there are not many of them here in New Zealand and we don't have any GM Dealerships in this country so parts are a problem.
Poor fuel economy, but I guess you can't expect a lot better from a 2 1/2 ton truck with a 4.3 litre engine, plus I like to "drive" my Blazer.
Great comfort, great visibility, good looks, just wish it was a little more reliable.
I am a full time mechanic so repairs are not the problem, it's more availability of parts and diagnostic info that are the major concern with owning this vehicle.
Apart from that I love my Blazer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
