Pros: The Appearance
Cons: The noisy left turn signal. GM says it is a characteristic of my vehicle.
Advice: When GM Assistance can not help you they send you a letter to file a claim with the Better Business Bureau and they wash their hands clean of your problems.I did not get to test drive my blazer because the dealer was closing and I originally went in to test the 2003 Tracker.
Pros: Limited-slip differential
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: Vehicle is great for one or two people.I own this vehicle for almost two months now, just past the 500 mile mark. So far no problems (well, the heat/cool blower fan would not start one cold morning. The gas mileage is not the best (maybe 16mpg). The steering wheel seem to be pulling to the left a little bit (might need an alignment). Otherwise the vehicle is great. Rear passenger entry is a pain, accessable easily by kids only. Since I live by the Canadian border four wheel drive is great.
Pros: power sunroof
Advice: buy it fully loaded, only way to goi took it for a drive from the dealership with three miles on the engine and returned with 12 on it. i loved every minute driving that car along with all its added options , so i bought.

Pros: the outside apperance
Cons: the manufactures work
Advice: don't buy this carThe Chevy Blazer is not a safe vehicle you car can flip over if your speed is a little high, and the car is a complete lemon. You will have various problems with the car includeing brakes, batteries, and transmision
Pros: Style and smooth ride.
Advice: If you get the 2-Door make it the ZR2 model. Rides better.The ZR2 Blazer is much more stable on the road. Plus the looks are much better than the new Trailblazer. I traded in my 1997 4-Door LT 4WD Blazer and I'm much happier with The ZR2 not that I didn't like the 97. I just always liked the looks of the ZR2. If you never owned an SUV than the Blazer is a good choice for most general transportation requirements of smaller sized families. Have fun!
Cons: ratling window
Advice: Make sure it is the right size for your familySlow to accelerate, but once it is moving, it is quick. Smooth overall ride. Small inside not comfortable for my husband, but perfect for me and my weekly grocery shopping and daily gym bags. Would have liked a bit more chrome on the outside, but the inside is just enough leather and looks
