2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4.3 Liter Vortec from North America
'Johnny on the spot' never lets me down
The truck had a blown radiator at about 175,000 miles.
Also, regular (typical) wear of the universal joints.
I have owned the car since brand new, and it's been wonderful.
It has never failed me outside of the blown radiator.
It now has 220k miles and still runs like a champ, in addition to having NO rust (in Michigan!).
The only real work outside of the radiator has been routine: brakes, oil changes, universal joints.
I even treated myself two years ago to a massively upgraded sound system, which made the car even better. It is a tragedy that GM no longer makes these workhorses.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
