The Blazer is a hit or miss; may have problems, may not, luck of the draw I guess
When I first got it, I had to have the heater core cleaned... seeing as it was almost 8 years old, not a big deal.
The driver side door pin had to be replaced. This is a known issue with the Blazer, Jimmy, and any other S-10 model.
Next was a check engine light; ended up not being anything as it went off randomly (twice this has happened).
Next was the service 4WD light. So far, still not fixed, but repairs are around 600 bucks or more. 4x4 switch and a decoder motor for the transmission... looks to be a bad wire/connection to the module... (wondering what that's going to cost).
Overall, this is a nice car. I haven't had any real problems with it. It seems that the plastic they use for the interior is cheap though, as I've had several things break off.
+the car runs great.
+it handles well and gives a decently smooth ride.
+ Great A/C.
- 4x4 lacks compared to my last blazer (96)
- Gas mileage is worse than my last blazer.
- Get up is not as good as my last blazer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
