2002 Chevrolet S-10 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Leased this vehicle for 4 years- bad news! GM LeaseCo is a situation to be avoided at all costs. Just try to get out of your lease- I dare you! Truck always started and ran well. Problems with suspension (truck developed a lean to one side, then the other), battery replaced under warranty, 4X4 system worked well most of the time, but if you change tires, you must change all 4 together, otherwise difference in tire circumference will bind up transfer case. Tires from dealer were the worst I've ever had. Truck tough looks, but only 4 ply rated. Had flat tires more than 4 times after travelling on roads which others travelled unscathed. End of lease- good bye! Engine too thirsty for me.
Great versatility, drove well, reliable,excellent seating position with good ergonomics. Stereo was great- for a dealer system.
Fix fuel economy problems- why can't a small truck get 25 MPG? 15 MPG is the same as a full sized vehicle. GM LeaseCo could start learning the art of flexible negotiation. I will never lease a vehicle again, and may never purchase from the General again. nuff said.
