1997 Chevrolet S-10 Extended Cab LS 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I bought this truck with 135,000miles on it. About 2000 miles later I needed a new transmission. At 142,000 I needed a new gas line, brake line, and gas tank. I still need to get a O2 sensor, fuel sensor, new shocks, my transmission still isn't that great, and the gas mileage for a 4 cylinder isn't that great. All in all I wish I just bought a nice sedan..


Favorite Features

I like the turning radius, good size bed for a small truck


Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage, quality of parts.

Review

No mechanical trouble in 14 mos. ownership, even though I just turned 151k mi. I just do regular maintenance and put a set of tires on her.


Favorite Features

3rd. door is awesome. CD is great to have (aftermarket). 4.3 V-6 is awesome-lots of power even with auto trans.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger box, eaiser access to #3 spark plug.

GM can't figure out why they are having trouble competing, well this is why: junky cars.
