I too have fallen victim to the "like a Rock" promotion. The vehicle seemed as if it had a tire out of balance when I purchased it used at 38,000 miles. It turned out to be that both front wheel bearings were shot.
In addition, I had to replace the upper ball-joints, alternator, rear differential cover, rear brake calipers, intake manifold gasket, rear axle seal, front differential seal and the emergency brake line all before 52,000 miles. Since then numerous other components have failed.
This among others is the reason GM is in need of a government bailout.
The Blazer looks nice. It has sufficient power, however the cons out-way any pros.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
