    I cracked the 66k km mark a few days ago.
    Still no issues to report. Replaced the battery a week or two ago due to a dead cell.

    The odo clicked over to 100,000km on Monday. The old Chevy is still behaving faultlesly. The Covid lockdown has slowed the km build, but we did manage two overland holidays since the pandemic started.Name:  20210325_175942.jpg

    When mine hit 200 000 km I posted a pic, post #37 (traded on 205 000 km). At the time you replied "..keep on trucking and enjoy..."

    Let me return these words to you.

    I would still take it easy though, the run-in period may not be fully done yet.

    Hi, with Chev out of the country how is the parts/services availability? Can one buy a 2nd hand TB with peace of mind?

    I won't say "peace of mind", but rather use the term "calculated". Here is my thinking:
    1) my personal experience with my Chevy and dealerships, service and part has been a pleasure. No sign yet that GM is not keeping its promise. Doesn't say it won't deteriorate over time.
    2) we live in a global community and anything can be bought on-line from just about anywhere in the world. Can be a pain, but definitely doable.
    3) GM's departure must make it possible to get a Blazer at a real good price (which ofcourse means my Blazer isn't worth what a would have liked).
    That's why I say "calculated".

    Thanks,
    Do you have an auto or manual, fuel consumption?
    Yes they are cheaper but not as much as one would think - at dealers that is.

    Feels like yesterday that yours was new.

    It's a good thing I like this car. Looks like I'm going to end up living in it one if these days.
