I've tried this American made car as my first car ever, but am afraid Japanese will be my next buy.
Rear struts (I believe) needed replacing within first year due to faulty manufacturing; luckily it was still covered by warranty.
Alternator required replacing.
Driver side visor's plastic construction snapped off with minimal use which now prevents "flap" from remaining closed to keep visor light off. Luckily, a store bought CD holder strapped on keeps the flap shut now.
Passenger & Driver seat adjust level needed replacement withing 3 months of each other as they both just snapped off when being used to recline the seat back (don't ask why).
Fuel level sensor stopped working which will cost $121 to repair unless I choose to replace the whole fuel pump for $472.
Motor mounts were "collapsed" but can be repaired/replaced for $261.
Coolant line is leaking.
CD player no longer plays. Sometimes, one track will, but "Err" message appears mid track. Owner's manual says this is temporary effect usually when humidity in weather is high, but should clear after an hour. So far, it's been a week.
I love the space my Blazer provides but I'd much prefer to have the dependability I hear many other driver get from their Japanese make cars.
Although, on the comfortability issue, the back seats could be more comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
