Most dependable small SUV
Considering how much I beat on this, it hasn't had too much go wrong.
Right front brake caliper got stuck and burned out the disc; replaced it at 147,000.
After going through a 30 ft mud hole, I cracked the distributor and got it wet, causing a misfire, which dumped unburnt fuel into the cat, and I burned that out. Cost $1200 to repair all the damage.
Bent frame rail after a nasty incident on a two track where it got a few feet off the ground.
Fuel pump went out at 153,000.
Broke right front tow hook towing it home after the distributor went out.
This is a bulletproof vehicle. I've driven this like it were meant for a rally, I've had it on 2 wheels more than once, and I've put it in the ditch with very little damage.
The 4.3 Vortec is a monster, and has plenty of power to push this Blazer through any mud hole or up any hill.
After the abuse on the trails, I can drive home on the interstate at 90 mph comfortably, but after a few hours my butt will get sore.
I owned a 95 Blazer as well, and I flipped that over on a trial, got my friend to put it back on its wheels, then I drove it home. The Blazer has never let me down, and it continues to amaze me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
