I am generally pleased with the 2001 blazer and it has met my expectations for the money
I had to replace the HUB assembly which has to do with the Anti-lock brake system.
I had to replace the serpentine belt 3 times within the first 50,000 miles - I eventually went with a Gatorbelt.
I had to replace the tires at 50,000 miles which were rated for 60,000.
Overall, this car has been reliable. I have 83K+ miles and there are things here and there, but nothing too serious. I think the car has a rough ride and am considering replacing the shocks with some better quality ones to see if it help. I usually stretch my oil changes to 5,000 miles and always use FRAM filters and have not had a problem yet - unless it concerns getting the filter on and off, which can be a chore. The fuel economy is not that great, but it's okay. Adding some metal to the car gives it some character - I have a grille guard from Westin, steps from smittybuilt and a rear bumper guard from Waag. People tell me it looks good with it - rahter plain without it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
