"Owned this car since the end of the 2004 model year. I see many of the same model driving around every day. It has survived congested city and freeway driving of 50+ miles every work day in 100-120 degree heat 4 months out of each year for 10 years. My son now uses it a lot for his home repair business; he also is mechanically inclined and carefully maintains it. Yes, the CD player quit working some time ago, the water pump was replaced once, as was the ignition switch. One of the ignition wires to a little too short for a tilt steering wheel causing the battery to continue working when we thought the engine was fully turned off. Otherwise, I would give this car a 10. It will be driven until it literally falls apart."

"Bought this 03 in 09 used and without a clue what it could do. It had 138000 miles on it when I bought it and it never needed anything engine wise. Did have to get emergency radiator flush in Jan. and if u know how cold Jan in New York is.....it was an emergency. I just started replacing original parts last year. Considering they are 10 plus years old....that's not bad. I'm going to miss her when I sell her, but I am moving on. I am sad they don't make the Blazer anymore, but now I know why.....they are sturdy, dependable, and Chevy Tough."

"We bought our '96 Blazer in early '98. It has been, by far, the BEST car we've ever had! This car has been extremely reliable. Of course a lot has to do with the fact that we're the 2nd owners of it and have had it in our care for 16 years. Our oldest had 2 accidents in it after he got his license. Each time we bought a blazer of the same year whose engine or transmission was bad, then frankenstein-ed it back together. It is one of the best cars Chevrolet has ever made, and shame them for not making it anymore."

"Car was well maintained. Ran well until I had a leaky intake manifold gasket which developed into replacing the intake manifold. I don't know what happened when it was fixed, but it has never run correctly since being worked on. It misses and shifts terribly. Oil pressure has dropped from 40 psi to 5 psi. The dealer has spent days trying to fix the car replacing almost everything electrical on the engine with no avail. Now they say it is an internal problem. I just sold it for $600."

"The thing we loved about this vehicle was the 4x4. It would go anywhere in any type of weather. On the down side there was just soooo many mechanical problems. From brakes to fuel pump to exhaust problems. You name it and we had to fix it!"
