"We've owned this Blazer for 5 1/2 years, purchased new. Since its purchase, it did have one issue....the wiper motor lost its intermittant function in the first six months, but was quickly replaced under warranty.
Other than that one miniscule item, this Blazer has soldiered on without one hiccup. It's made innumerable trips up and down the Eastern seaboard, through rain, snow, you name it....and it looks almost like it did when we purchased it....not a speck of rust, paint glossy and perfect. And she's hauled our four dogs and us in comfort, no matter the load....towing our boat or the Haulmark trailer we use when we go to auctions.
Now that we've paid it off, we're enjoying its reliability even more. Of course, we've done our maintenance on her....oil changes done only with Mobil 1 synthetic oil, Mobil 1 synthetic lubes everywhere else, where applicable (rear end, trans. fluid.)
She's just about ready for her second set of spark plugs (replacing them every 70K miles), second set of shocks (Bilsteins again), and maybe a front end alignment next month (have only had three alignments done....she almost refuses to go out of alignment on us.)
She did have her tires replaced at 100K miles....but only because I couldn't stand the OEM Laredos any longer, not because they'd worn out (hated throwing away good tread, but despised the tires!)
We're on the downhill side of cost-per-mile now and are determined to enjoy her for a few more years. Guess we just got lucky and got a great vehicle.....and she still gets around 22mpg overall average gas mileage.
Just like the Energizer bunny, blazer just keeps running and running and running......."
