2001 Chevrolet S-10 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Having driven a Nissan Pu 4X4 for 11 years,lets say I was a little hesitant about buying domestic. At this time I am very impressed with the ride and driveability of this truck. Very comfortable, plenty of zip from the 4.3 V6, nicely equipped. It has the optional limited slip rear axle. Easy access with all four doors. No problems to date. Fuel mileage is as expected with a 4X4 not great, but you dont purchase a vehicle of this type for fuel economy, nor will you carry 4X8 sheets of lumber in the bed, a trade off for having the crew cab. Dependability is still to be determined.
4 doors, push button 4X4, no stubborn handles to linkages to seize up, great ride, plenty of room for family of 4, although I wouldn't want to take a long trip in the back seat, a little too low.
Interior Quality,kind of cheezy, too much plastic. A standard bed extender would be nice. Improve the height of the rear seat to be a little more comfortable.
