About the car

This versatile and reliable mid-sized SUV makes a great choice for ski-trips, coastal camp-outs and other sporting get-aways to the country, especially if you like to pack a wee-bit of gear with you, all the better to explore our state's scenic routes and beautiful backroads. Bikes, boards, bags, briquettes -- throw it in-or-on, and just go! Yet, for all it's cargo-carrying capablility, it's still compact enough to nimbly serve the needs of coffee-swilling city-dwellers.

Yes, all the basic amenities demanded by modern-day explorers can be found here: nylon-fabric upholstery and carpeting throughout, reclining bucket-seats in front, with adjustable lumbar supports and large integrated headrests for you to top-off with your take-along pillow, AM/FM/CD six-speaker stereo, air-conditioning, digital compass and outdoor-temperature indicator, lighted vanity-mirrors in BOTH sun-visors, twin multi-directional reading lamps, four cup-holders, etc. Two key-sets provided, including one with wireless-remote key-fob.

Tons of cargo-room inside for all your stuff that needs protection, plus a beefy OEM roof-rack for anything from kayaks to sheetrock. Recently purchased and clamped-on a new pair of key-lockable "Thule"-brand ski/snowboard holders, taking-up only the curb-side half of factory rack (nominal capacity: 4 skis, or 2 snowboards).

But wait, there's more! Out-back, a rather amazing big/little 24"-long x 54"-wide trailer-hitch-mounted cargo-carrier is optionally available, on request, at no additional charge. In some southern parts of the country these are called, simply enough, hitch-racks...

Great place to stow your gangly, space-consuming, relatively-lightweight stuff (like trikes, bikes, BBQ's, sleeping-bags and lawn-chairs), as well as any mildly-noxious items (Honey, did you really need to bring the Porta-Potti from the tent-trailer!?), and ALL vaporous inflammables, like outboard-motor gasoline fuel-tanks.

You could even carry Grandma's electric "mobility-scooter" (Please, Honey, don't call it a wheelchair in front of Mom!), tho' the wider ones would "put a wheel up", as they say, on the 3"-high curb at rear of carrier-deck.

If you request this optional, no-extra-charge cargo-carrying device, I'll send you my personal two-page list of recommended safety-precautions concerning its use. Just to get you started, tho', here are links to the manufacturer's operating instructions and a demonstration video, both posted online by retailer Pickup Specialties:

For traveling parents transporting their most-precious "cargo" here on the airlines, but absolutely loathe to once-again schlep bulky child-seat/s, straps and buckles flying, through the airport at each end (and, ugh!, those flight-connections!) of the family's otherwise totally-happy journey, I do (yes, mercifully!) have two child-restraint seats optionally available: one infant-size (rear-facing), and one toddler-size (front-facing). I use these occasionally in my upscale personal transportation business, where I charge $10 extra for each of them, but for RR renters they're free. Could probably scrounge-up a third unit of any type needed (Booster seat, anyone?), if asked. No real need for visiting parents to import and then export this bulky gear all the way across the country, just to protect Junior over the last ten miles to Grandma's house!

GM's wonderfully comprehensive O&M manual provides much guidance on how these various types of child-restraints should be selected, placed and secured; and of course on everything else truly important to safely enjoying this nifty little passenger-truck. Original manual is in the glovebox. Also downloadable online for free, in pdf-format, at www.justgivemethedamnmanual.com.

First-time operators will really appreciate the convention-conforming simplicity of this old-school Blazer. Cockpit-layout is ultra-simple and touchscreen-free (except for your own GPS-equipped smartphone and/or tablet, of course)! Run your digital music into the ship's powerful stereo system through either the provided cassette-adapter or your own empty-channel FM-transmitter.

This IS the 21st century, of course, so the vehicle does have an onboard 4G LTE WiFi hot-spot, just like the Google-bus, Jet Blue and Virgin America! This broadband internet connection is provided by Verizon Wireless, whose coverage outside of town is recognizably the best. So watch streaming video by the campfire! [Reasonable data-useage limits will apply.]

The vehicle has been kept well-maintained, with an admitted focus on safety. All new Bridgestone steel-belted radial-ply Desert Dueler M&S-rated tires just last summer, and a major brake-overhaul at that time, too.

A few small scrapes and dings in the sheet-metal from parking-lot encounters and such-like mishaps give the little truck some humble character. My standard RR check-out sheet has this minor existing cosmetic damage already pre-noted.

The truck will be reasonably clean at the start of your rental, and will need to be similarly clean on your return. The truck cannot safely and easily go through an automatic carwash, due to its semi-fixed radio-antenna and plastic front-end bug-deflector, as well as the optionally removable ski/snowboard-holder currently left clamped to the factory roof-rack, likely through the approaching end of snow-sliding season.

Unlike some of the foreign makes of wide-tired, hot-rod SUV's (BMW X-5, etc.), this American-made passenger-truck does NOT require premium fuel, and instead is quite happy drinking the more-affordable regular unleaded gas. Yep, Bud, not Becks!

When it's Time-to-Go, the big 4.3-liter Vortec V-6 definitely lets you know it's On-the-Job, but shows no real stress getting the vehicle quickly up-to-speed on the freeway, even when the truck is heavily-loaded. I do respectfully ask and firmly advise that you not push this willing little truck over the posted speed-limit anywhere, anytime.

Yes, I've owned this loyal "little" SUV for six years now, given it just a very few new adornments, while driving it relatively rarely (only ~20,000 miles on my watch), as I generally tool-around-town in a leased Town Car throughout the week. The cobalt blue Blazer's been mainly my weekend dinner-date and day-tripper fun-machine. It's served admirably at all those pleasure-filled duties for me and mine, just as I hope it will now for you and yours, too.

Availability

My little blue Blazer's safely back from its first rental, playing a key role in a start-up company's weekend fun-run, rolling easily up to the far shore of snowy/sleety Lake Tahoe!

Now ready for anything Winter or Spring can throw at you! Comes with a new bag of cable-style snow- "chains"; fresh windshield-wiper blades; and a golf umbrella big enough for two close friends to take-shelter under, together, from seasonal showers!

This willin' little passenger-truck is once-again sitting idle near the Belmont CalTrain station. Can meet-up near home at Peet's Coffee in Belmont, or bring the Blazer to you at SFO, San Carlos or Palo Alto airports.
