I bought my S-10 about 2 years ago from
a friend. I've put about $3500 into
repairs in 2 years. The engine on the
truck is great, but everything else
seems to break down constantly. Had
major problems with the fuel pump,
brake booster, O2 sensors, and the
front axel. The roof leaks very bad,
and both door switches broke about a
month after I got it. The washer fluid
bin started leaking as well as the
transmission fluid pan. Brakes have
been a very big hassle also. The truck
is very comfortable to drive, but
that's about it. All in all I will
NEVER ever buy another S-10.
The 4.3L V6 is pretty nice.
Where to begin... Needs more ties in
the bed, better brake system, better
paint and exterior.
