"this model has serviced our family very good the last 15 years. dependable, normal wear. handled very well. the replacement crv doesn't feel as safe, but all models are downsizing I guess. 172k miles and hate to give it up but the seat and ac unit need to be replaced and I have a back problem that need a better vehicle. and better mileage."
Pros: "Great 4x4, a lot of torque, great ride hight"
Cons: "Radio is a pain to replace, weird cabin"

"My Blazer is a lot of fun. The electronic 4x4 allows easy shifting from 2HI to 4HI when it is needed. I picked my Blazer up for around $4700 from a dealer. The only issue I have had with it is the ABS went but since there are so many of these vehicles, the parts are cheap. With all this snow this winter I get about 15MPG, the lowest I had was 13, highest of 16. This SUV isn't too big nor is it too small, it is just right. Also, who doesn't love that old style automatic truck shifting?"
Pros: "Four Wheel Drive,Spacious,Fun to drive in snow/mud"
Cons: "Gas Mileage"

"I absolutely love my Chevy Blazer. I love the four wheel drive, I love pretty much everything about it besides the terrible gas mileage. It is definitely a gas guzzler. It performs perfectly in deep snow (or some off roading) and is wonderful if you tow something. It also has a lot of space to put things in the trunk, if you need more room you can put down the seats. It's not too big and not too small. I don't think I can ever go back to having a sedan. I would miss the four wheel drive and how high the vehicle sits."
"These vehicles are extremely reliable, the only real issues I've found are the poor gas mileage with the 4.3 v-6 engine and having to change the alternators. The engines on these vehicles are phenomenal and if you keep oil in them they will last forever!"
"This car was our daughter's car so had road in it. She took very good care of this car. We had a little car and I didn't like driving it. When our daughter traded her car in we bought the Blazer. I really enjoy driving it. It has 4 WD and have used it when we get the snow."
