I love my Blazer - she has been my faithful roadtrip companion for 10 years and counting
Ball joints were an issue; replaced uppers and lowers 2x.
Original fuel pump lasted 120,000 miles.
Am sitting in a bookstore waiting for the fuel filter to be replaced, lasted 130,000 miles.
Very few issues.
I have been the sole owner of this car for all but 300 miles (delivery miles from NY dealer). I love it. I read these other reviews, and think maybe I got lucky, but however you look at it, I love this car.
Fuel consumption is the major issue.
Off road, it has been great. Harsh winters back east, and in the Grand Canyon National Park where I live now - the Blazer handles snow beautifully.
It has been a completely reliable vehicle for me, and the service I have received from the 2 Chevy dealers I use has been second to none. I take good care of her, but also have driven her fairly hard (got it when I was 20).
I have very few complaints, and would consider buying another... perhaps converting it to bio diesel...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
