We recently purchased this 1996 Blazer and due to it being used we are without warranty. The windshield wipers sometimes do not come on and when they are working they sometimes stop in the midst of a rainstorm. This is extremely dangerous and has caused us on more than one occasion the need to stop driving for our safety and other motorists. The air conditioner is hit and miss just like the wiper, but thank heavens this is not a safety issue only a comfort issue.

Emergency brake cable rerouted--improperly installed, caused squeaking noise. Dash panel tightened--leaking cold air into driver's lap. Rear bumper strip had to be reinstalled.
