Literally the biggest piece of junk I've ever had the displeasure of owning. Purchased it with 40,000 miles. If you enjoy replacing endless front end suspension and steering parts, then this is your baby. The interior levers and latches seem to be made of card board. Had to repair intake manifold gasket, oil lines, AC compressor, ball joints twice, front axle shafts twice, sway bar, steering gear box, and pitman arm. This is before 130K.The engineering team at chevrolet should be take out back and shot for the creation of this monetary black hole. If you are considering buying one of these bang your head against the wall a dozen times and you will have the same experience I have had.

I bought mine used in 2000 with 34k miles. Sold her in 2011 with 240k miles.
-never replaced clutch
-brakes last long time
-never any major work done
-decent on gas
-took the abuse I gave to it.
-motor and transmission are very good
-cosmetic & electrical issues
-a/c issues ( I gave up after 3rd time)
-leaks oil at 100k miles
-cluster went out at 200k
Would highly recommend if you are looking for a reliable cheap truck.

This vehicle was truly a gem.
I have driven it to the east coast and to the west coast and pretty much everywhere inbetween.
Never had any huge problems until it got to be over 200,000 miles. Then it started nickel and diming me.
I have nothing but good to say about this vehicle.
If they still made them I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
The S-10 gets a sheet metal makeover and a new interior with dual airbags that incorporate second-generation technology for reduced force deployments. The basic four-cylinder engine benefits from Vortec technology this year, while 4WD models now have four-wheel disc brakes and a more refined transfer case on trucks with an automatic transmission. New radios, automatic headlight control and a standard theft-deterrent system sum up the changes.
