"Purchased used (4 yrs, 48k miles) from a national retailer of used cars. Is now 13 yrs & 125k miles. Has been very reliable. I am capable of doing many repairs myself. I have replaced two alterators & due to the placement of the alternators it is a simple job. I recently had to replace the radiator. But again, it wasn't terribly difficult. The only consistent problems are 1) the brake warning light will come on for a few days once a year or so, 2) A/C requires a can of refrigerant every year [until this year for some reason] for the last 2 or 3 years, 3) if it sits for approximately 3 days coolant will leak from the driver's side engine block to water pump connection. Oddly it has to sit for a few days, if it is driven every day this does not occur. The leak is not serious, less than an ounce in 24 hours. I just have to keep an eye on the overflow receptacle. If it were more serious I would fix it. In retrospect I should have removed and remounted the water pump when I replaced the radiator...but I didn't!"
"Exterior held up well. Numerous repairs. Oil lines, intake manifold, 4 wheel drive repaired 2 times. 2 brake sensors-wheel cylinder-radiator-alternator-water pump-vacum lines for ducts-ball joints plus-wipers-back wiper motor. There is so more.Up to $4000.00 in repairs."
"i have a really hard time believing that my blazer being a five speed with a borg warner t5 transmission makes it a few hundred dollars less valuable than it automatic counterpart. the fact it has a 5 speed actually should make it more pricey for it is rarer! the only thing that would make it even more rare is if it had the factory zr2 package!"
