I bought my s10 with 94k. after i bought it the alternator went out. i replaced front pads, rotors, and wheel bearings at 100k. new tires and front ball joints followed at 130k. i've replaced the fuel pump twice. the truck now has 160k with no signs of stopping. its a dependable truck. parts can be pricey but with proper care, the truck will last as long as you want it to. gas mileage is great, its under powered with the 4cyl, but id prefer the gas mileage over the acceleration. if planning on lowering it like i did, be prepared for suspension components to fail.

Bought this truck to replace an aging
Lumina 18 months ago. In that time
I've put 33K on it, with little
problem. Replaced a throttle position
sensor around 70K miles ($145).
However, replacing a fuel pump is NOT
cheap. The pump itself is $530, not to
mention the premium price that GM

I have only owned this truck for about
three months. The truck had 44000 miles
when I bought it and I have had to
replace many "expensive" parts. Guess
GM doesnt build to last. Also the real
kicker is this truck has the 4L60E
automatic transmission which is total
JUNK! It needs to be rebuilt and after
doing research on this trans I find
that GM has known abouth this problem
since 1996 but has failed to improve
the design if this trans. So at or
about 40000 to 60000 miles you can plan
on rebuilding this junk transmission.
Guess I would be happier if I didn't
have to look forward to paying 1800.00
for a trans rebulid. Start saveing OR
BUY A STICK SHIFT.
Performance and durability enhancements have been made to the engine, exhaust system, manual transmission and antilock braking system, but they don't result in more horsepower. Trucks equipped with the ZR2 package get a new axle ratio designed to improve acceleration. Extended cabs are available in Base trim this year, and LS models have revised exterior moldings.
