1984 Chevrolet S-10 Durango 2.8 V6 from North America
It never dies...
It really likes its starters, I've replaced 3 since I've had it.
Idles very rough.
After a long trip, the starter sticks.
Rust in the front fenders.
Driver's side window off track.
Rear tail lights don't work very well.
Heater doesn't heat up all that well.
Have to hold the 4x4 lever to keep it engaged.
A heater vent fell in.
Driver's side door hard to close and clunks open.
Got it from my dad.
Still on the original engine, transmission, and every other mechanical component, other than the starters.
Takes forever to start in the morning. Once it's warm, it runs fine except for idling.
Interesting to tow with...
Easy to drive.
Unbreakable. Will run forever. Just when I think it's about to die, it keeps on going.
Been through "the tuff truck" competition at the fair (jumps, mud pits, bumps, rocks) and is STILL running...
Easy to light up the tires, but it doesn't like doing it, as it bogs and sputters when done.
God... it just won't die.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow. This one tops the highest mileage Ranger I know of (it had 397,000 miles on it). I guess this puts a kink in the import myths. There isn't a Tacoma or Tundra on the planet that has gone 400,000 miles.

I have an '84 S10 Blazer too,
It's got a 350 (5.7 liter) and numerous other mods.
Haven't gotten to drive it much because we've been working on the 4-sp auto transmission. It is really fast tho', can't wait till it's finished, after I drive it some I'll be able to write a review on it.
Good luck with the Blazer, they're great trucks!
