Default Blazers reliable?

Found a 2002 blazer 4.3L v6 auto with 104k miles on it, body is in mint shape so is interior... my question is how reliable are these things? I'm debating between a blazer or inline 6 grand cherokee, but i've heard blazers get loud on little. I just don't wanna get into something and have a ton of issues when I have a reliable car right now, but i'm tired of a trunk and wanna do a nice big system in the SUV I buy, what do people have for experience when it comes to systems in blazers? I don't really need the back seats either, so i guess I have 2 questions haha. thanks.

Blazers are really reliable, parts are cheap, and they are easy to work on.

They are ok. Check the front end for play in tie rods and ball joints. That's a normal thing with blazers is replacing those though.

Also any vehicle can get "loud" with little.

yeah i was looking a tahoe to, someone told me they are harder to get loud though... it's gonna come down to either a tahoe or 4 runner most likely... i really do like the look of the blazers but a tahoe is nice to
