This was my first vehicle I bought myself in April of 2001. I still have it, still drive it and still love it. Over the years this truck has been very reliable and the quality is great. The only problem I have with it is the 2.2L 4cylinder engine. bad idea on GM's part, engine is way too small for this truck and eats gas like crazy and extremely underpowered, 4:10 gears don't help fuel consumption either, 21mpg at best and thats driving it easy.
It's an S10 what more can I say. It's great! Huge aftermarket, nice style. looks good even for being 14 years old
Scrap the complete line of ugly useless Colorado trucks that replaced the S10 line and bring back the S10 with a nice DOHC 6cyl engine. I assure you I'll be first in line for one of those!
