1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer Tahoe 4.3 from North America
A great truck with lots of American muscle!
Water pump failed, but was easy and cheap to replace.
Brake line blew out after a hard stop.
Brake pads fail without warning.
Driver's side front wheel sticks out further than the other one.
Interior rattles a lot.
The headliner is sagging.
The windshield leaks.
There were no rubber gaskets or anything around the doors, so it leaked in air and rain, but was a cheap and easy repair.
The gas pedal is hard to depress at times.
Cruise control quits when the wipers are activated.
Back glass does not latch.
I bought this truck in a hurry after my Ranger lost its transmission. Overall I am pleased with it. It's 24 years old and still runs great. I like that it is very roomy and has enough power to get up to speed, where my Ranger was lacking.
It's easy to get in and out of, which is good, and I also like that it has fold down seats and a ladder rack, which is a must, because I own a gutter company, and need racks for ladders and room for tools.
My only complaint is that it handles badly, and drinks way too much gas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
