2001 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This was my first brand new vehicle and I have mixed feelings. It HAS lasted almost five years straight. I have driven it repeatedly off road and pulled little bush stumps with it. On the OTHER hand, with less than 1000 miles on it a coolant leak developed behind the dash, turning that new car smell into that rotting corpse smell. It's also extremely underpowered. I have actually considered turning off the A/C when merging onto a fast highway. And I have to replace a blown A/C fuse about twice a year. As it nears 90K miles, most of the engine seals are leaking. In the end, it is just what I paid for: a cheap little truck that will take care of you if you take care of it.


Best Features

Manual transmission is good for getting unstuck. A/C is critical in Georgia.


Worst Features

Had to buy a toolbox for my gear. Could be wider to fit that third passenger in without hitting the gearshift.

2001 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This truck handles great, the ZQ8 sport supension package hugs the road like a car. The 16x8" wheels put plenty of rubber on the road to keep the truck there. The motor has a lot of take-off power and will easily smoke both tires. Very thirsty at the pump. Average 16 MPG, 19.5 gallon tank, you do the math.


Best Features

Power and handling


Worst Features

They don't make it anymore so...

Review

It's a good idea for a truck, but 26 mpg isn't enough mileage for me. Beware of electrical problems . . . first thing that happens is in cold weather, it won't start unless you have more than 1/4 tank of gas. Then the lights start to flicker, and the brake lights go (had the brake lights fixed once, they're out again). Good luck trying to find the cause once the warranty expires


Best Features

Good AC, nice stereo. Standard transmission shifts OK.


Worst Features

Electrical system reliability. Gas mileage.
