2002 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Gutless no-tech motor. 17mpg @ 70mph. Overly restrictive air intake. PLASTIC intake manifold. PLASTIC clutch master-cylinder. PLASTIC power-steering fluid reservoir. PLASTIC radiator end-tanks. PLASTIC headlight covers. PLASTIC front grill with water soluble coloring. PLASTIC EVERYTHING in passenger compartment. Windows that refuse to seat properly in the fully-raised position. One broken window regulator (so far). All 4 shocks leaking. Torn rubber exhaust system hangers. Throttle jams in wide-open position. Corrosive DEXKOOL "coolant". ABS system must be disabled to get any kind of reliable braking. Hyper-sensitive seatbelt retractors.


Favorite Features

Couldn't care less about it getting stolen, burnt to the ground, or totaled in any other way.


Suggested Improvements

Paint color should be a bright lemon- yellow, with the words "Like A Crock" just below the "CHEVROLET" lettering on the tailgate. And "POS-10" at the front lower corner of each door would go a long way towards truth-in-advertising.

2002 Chevrolet S-10 3dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We have gotten about 17.0 mpg in general driving and 22.0 on a trip. It appears to lack power on hills. My wife calls it a girls truck. It's her truck.

Review

Runs great, 4.3 has great takeoff for a truck, no assembly problems other than 3rd door needed realigned. I've got the ZQ8 package without the extreme package. Truck looks badass, like it's crounching about to pounce.


Favorite Features

Aluminum Sport Wheels


Suggested Improvements

I would prefer the bucket seat package with center console instead of the 60/40 split. If you try to open the compartment in the arm rest and leave it open it falls backward and dumps all your stuff into the cab.

Review

The best little truck I've ever owned. No major problems. Wish it had more hp for a 4 cyl. Lots of fun to drive.


Favorite Features

Don't have a favorite. Everything is very acceptable the way it is.


Suggested Improvements

more hp. Better gas mileage and better traction in bad weather.

Review

Everything is perfect so far. Too much power for wet surfaces....tends to spin.


Favorite Features

Wonderful torque...it really shows when starting from a standing stop.


Suggested Improvements

Poor rear visibility. This seems to be a complaint with all new cars. The headrests are designed to protect your head in case of accident. Unfortunately, they are so large, they block the view to the rear.
