Merger Proposal[edit]

Please Verify[edit]

Someone modified this page to indicate that some S-10 Blazers were manufactured in Toluca, Mexico. I've never seen any for North American sale that were built outside of the United States; I'd like to see some proof of this, I.E. a Blazer with a VIN number beginning with a 3.

http://www.gm.com/company/corp_info/global_operations/north_america/mexi.html that's all I can find, I don't see mention of manufacturing in mexico, just assembly.
The link posted here lists the Blazer as a GM Mexico Import, indicating that GM imports these vehicles from another country into Mexico. Therefore, I am removing the reference to Toluca, Mexico as an assembly location. -ClarusWorks 04:09, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

We had one with a crappy easily-broken door once, I think that one was manufactured in Mexico. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.122.63.142 (talk) 20:11, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

1st gen S-Blazers and pickups WERE available with a 5-speed manual transmission, so sentence indicating that they weren't was removed. Most 2nd Gen S-Blazers did NOT have AWD (note distinction between AWD and 4WD), so sentence was edited (also to correct grammar).

I happen to hold a service manual for the 1994 S10 Blazer. In the section about the VIN the only assembly plants given are: 0 Pontiac, MI / 2 Moraine, OH / 8 Shreveport, LA / K Linden, NJ. No mention of any Mexican assembly plant. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.126.24.217 (talk) 14:12, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

S-10 Flaws[edit]

The Bronco II/Ranger/Explorer counterpart pages are open about problems faced by their Ford small truck owners, but there is no similar critical inquiry S-10 problems here. A scan of user forums across the web criticize GM small trucks for a variety of problems--far more so than Ford small trucks. (Toyota gets the best user reviews). It would be great if verifiable flaws could be included in this page. Having said that, it is not really fair to compare truck brands until at least 10 years after manufacture. Also, it is at this age that trucks start getting rebuilt and modified, and hence the value of this information.--John Bessa (talk) 19:23, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Well... I went to check this online data in the field, and all I got from mechanics and S-10 owners were looks of disbelief. They said that every "hard user" (my words) that ever owned a Ranger got rid of it, presumably to buy an S-1--if small was still a criteria. This goes to the [Information Society]. Google has apparently replaced the somewhat reliable UseNet in its groups section, with online forums (where I got my information, and which I believe descend from the BBSs and chat rooms of the dial-up era). It seems that there is barely a word of truth in these forums and that genuine people are well out-numbered by liars (ECD). As I mention, this goes to the Information Society, which is today the Internet of which the Wikipedia is a major component (take note). So in other words, it is exceedingly possible that much here is lie, perhaps short-circuited by mutually supported misinformation: mental illness. This is not to say that the Internet and Information Society should be abandoned, as it is all we as humans have -- we are built from technology, and only our uses of technology can save us.--John Bessa (talk) 15:24, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Confirmed class[edit]

I checked and it was a compact SUV until 1995 (as written by the rules in wikipedia) but there isn't an article for midsized suv's, so I had to go to IIHS and add the source in.Bookster451 (talk) 18:53, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
