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.

1997 Chevrolet S-10 LS 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I have been rather disappointed in this vehicle, considering my father's 1993 Chevy Silverado is still going strong at over 100K miles. I only have about 66K miles, and have had, in the past three months, to put almost $1500 into this for things that should still be working fine. I have been pretty good about regular maintenance, so I've been pretty annoyed of late. Time to trade in for a (gasp) foreign car make.


Favorite Features

For a truck, this actually does reasonably well on gas mileage. It's also not all that uncomfortable on a long ride.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability. Why can my drivetrain not last 66K miles without major investment? Size. I was eagerly anticipating the new Colorado, but am now looking elsewhere.

Review

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. Great Driver


Favorite Features

it's so easy to work on


Suggested Improvements

none at this time
