I love my truck. Very reliable and cheap transportation for me for the last 12 years. I have had a few problems, but most were covered under warranty during the first 36,000 miles. Since then, I replaced the alternator, battery, U bolts, and that is it. The truck burns no oil, runs like a dream, and is very quick. It rides a little rough. It is easy to park and easy to see out of this vehicle. Oh yeah, one more thing, the radio volume knob fell off one day. Funny thing was I was driving down the road, passed a guy with the exact same truck, looked through his window and noticed that his volume button fell off too!
I can pull in front of someone and then step on it and leave 'em in the dust. They don't think an S10 truck can do that, but it does.
It's too late to improve this truck now. Plus there is not much to improve. Sure it would be great to have side airbags and passenger airbags, but those weren't common in '95.
This truck has never given me any problems, other than ones I've caused myself. Towing three times the capacity has cost me 2 transmissions so far. All in all, the truck starts when I want it to and takes whatever I need wherever I need it. I was a Ford guy. This truck made me a Chevy guy.
I have a 1995 S10 vin Z with 159000
miles. I love this truck. It flat out
hauls (great for burnouts), and can
carry a lot a weight for such small
truck. So far had to replace brakes
once, rear shocks, alternator, starter,
and the catalytic converter, but that
is to be expected with such high
mileage. Cat-back exhaust and a
superchip really improve the power of
Excellent power, nice ride, good sound
Make the interior more durable,
considering i had to crazy glue a piece
One guy in this review wrote that
everything went out by 100k miles.
He's either lost his mind or got chevy
mixed up with his ford. Maybe a lemon,
who knows, but this truck and engine
has got me through a lot without many
probs. Besided spark plugs and wires,
the engine is perfect. I've had probs
with my rear end only because I lifted
the truck and put 31" tires on it. I
had to put a geared down rear end and
change my clutch at 120k miles which is
amazing for pulling the big inboard
outboard boat and turning those big
tires. I have 125k miles on this truck
and can't complain. I hope my next
Chevy treats me as good as this one
