Old and strong. by Frost49 on 10/28/2011. Trim: 1996 Chevrolet Blazer 4-Door 4WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: Reliabilty. I couldn't ask for anything better out of mine. 180,000 miles and still going. Almost no problems. Occasional belt, hose and all the other regular problems that come with age, Just replaced rear leaf spring shackels due to rusting off, but with salt and snow where I live I can't complain. Love mine and hope it keeps going for another few thousand. Almost all original parts on the engine. Only replaceement was the intake gasket that was leaking.
Cons: Rust protection on the frame is completely gone. Don't think it was applied very well from the start. Rear door has a very horrible opening system. Hope yours never breaks. Had to fix mine with a wire tie strap like McGyver.
Overall review: Great truck overall. It has went places I know it shouldn't have been. But why own a 4x4 if you don't use it. Goes great in snow and ice all winter long. City MPG could have been better, but highway I can't complain about the 25 MPG I get from an SUV.
