2001 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I was mainly looking at the "import"
pickups before I bought mine. A friend
of mine told me that the S10 with the
4.3 V6 / Auto was worth looking at
since he had known a number of people
who had many trouble-free miles with
that drivetrain. After comparing
Toyota, Nissan, and the S10, the Chevy
offered the most value/features for the
money. After a year and a half of
ownership, I can honestly say that the
S10 has far exceeded my expectations.
It gets 23 mpg on the highway, plenty
of power and comfort, and so far I have
not had it back to the dealership for
any problems. The guys in Shreveport
LA built a nice truck.
Power with the 4.3 V6. Comfortable
seats compared with the competition.
Good towing capacity for a compact.
Total reliability. Good fuel economy
for a pickup with a V6.
Sheet metal is too thin as is true with
most pickups these days. Not much else.
