Review of the 2002 Chevrolet S-10

  • Now eight years old (that's, like, 80 in people years), the Chevy S-10 is in desperate need of a redesign. That's coming, and soon. But for now, this middling edition is on sale. Try the Dodge Dakota, Ford Ranger, Mazda B-Series or Toyota Tacoma on for size instead, pardner.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fuel-efficient base engine, torquey optional V6, stump-jumping ZR2 off-road package.

  • Cons

    Spotty build quality, inferior-grade interior trim, low seating positions, poor crash-test scores.

  • What's New for 2002

    Additional standard features are added to the S-10 for 2002 including a tachometer, air conditioning and a third door for extended-cab models. Vehicles sold in Northern states also get the Cold Weather package as standard equipment.

I had a minor problem with the driver side window,but the dealer fixed it asap. I get a lot of compliements on the appearence. It is excellent for hauling

Nice truck

I purchased my S-10 in 2000 and have had no problems to date with it. Regular oil and maintence changes are all that has been required. Fuel economy is excellent. The interior could use some upgrading, but if you use your truck alot in dirty conditions its easy to clean.

Chevy s-10 2.2 liter

Truck still running great - Getting better fuel economy and more power as the truck gets more miles on it. Still, an increase in HP would be nice but if you're not planning to race anyone or abuse the vehicle, it's great for light duty and gets good gas mileage.
