I've always been a truck owner. I've had my S-10 for 10 years. I like the ride... handles well enough, but a pleasant ride. Interior is fine for me; seat color hides dirt. Just an all round nice vehicle. In 10 years and 150,000 miles the only repairs were EGR valve, alternator and wiper hose.
Fun to drive. Fast w/ the 195 hp engine. Has been very reliable for me.
Only changes I would make are to reduce a few interior plastic vibrations and to increase fuel mileage (perhaps shorter gears w/ the limited slip I have).
