1988 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer 4.3L from North America
A great 4wd SUV
The 2 door 4wd s10 blazer has been a great truck. It had the Tahoe package, which was power windows, power locks, power steering, air conditioning, high back bucket seats, and the upgraded interior. At 220,000 miles, the water pump went south, and about 235,000 miles the timing chain jumped a tooth and had to be replaced. Other than that, I never had a problem with it. Seats were in good condition, all the gages worked, the drive train was silky smooth and the 4wd worked perfectly. The paint was glossy, and the wheels would polish out nicely.
The truck had a lot of power and could spin the tires from a dead stop. I added a performance exhaust system including pace-setter headers and a Dynomax muffler. I also installed a K&N air filter and B&M trick shift transmission fluid for harder shifts. The truck had a 2" suspension lift and 32x12.5x15 mud tires on it. It was very fun on road, and even better off-road due to it's short wheelbase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
