This is my 3rd S-series truck from GM. I owned an 87 S-10 and 89 S-15. Both were excellent vehicles. This one continues the trend towards quality that I have always had with GM. My current truck has only been back to the shop 2 times (once for an oil change and once for body work after it was rearended)
Reliability and gas mileage. Hauling capacity. I was able to haul 35 40lb. bags of gravel in 1 trip.
Ability to turn off passenger airbag without the key.
