I bought my truck used from a friend who had two trucks. This is a great and dependable truck. I use my truck for work and decided since I was going to school to drive it. I drove from North Carolina to El Paso Texas no issue. The only thing that I did was change the timing belt and started using synthetic oil. Awesome truck!!

Love this truck and I would recommend one to anyone. Chevy made a big mistake when they stopped making them. They are very reliable and are a joy to own and drive. Great on gas too, I'm currently getting 30+ mpg on the highway and 25+ mpg city driving. Great performance for a 4-cylinder truck, even when loaded. Easy to modify to. This S10 is the 2nd one that I've owned for a work truck and I have had 3 others for project trucks/ street machines. Love em.

I just read through a few of the S-10
reviews and thought I should add my 2
cents. Purchased the truck for $10K
drove it over 100,000 miles and never
had any problems except for a burned
out fuse ($5) and I replaced myself...
and I'm NOT mechanically inclined. I
sold the truck in 2001 for $5100 with
110K miles and regret not keeping it
longer. Used it for commuting to
college and hauling firewood. Great
little truck. I may have gotten the 1
out of 1000... but sold the truck to a
manager at Pepsi for his daughter and
he informed me that Pepsi runs a fleet
of lil S-10 trucks and all of them have
passed 100K miles+ with little to none

The truck was not what I wanted.
Small, no frills. But when I drove it my
mind changed. It's fun to drive around
the city, if you like to drive. Oh it's
a 5 speed and I use it. Like most things
we drive it could use more power, but
then again I wouldn't be passing as many
gas stations. I plan on keeping it until
it or I give out. So far other the
regular maintenance it's got all the
factory parts except the rear U joint.
Chevy strengthens the 2WD S-10 frame by using tougher components. Refinements to the automatic transmission result in improved efficiency and smoother shifts. Four-wheel-drive models have lighter-weight plug-in half shafts. Two new colors are available.
