Review of the 2003 Chevrolet S-10

  • Now nine years old (that's, like, 80 in people years), the Chevy S-10 is in desperate need of a redesign.

  • 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 2003

    The S-10 gets few changes for what may be the final year of production of the current model. There's new cloth upholstery for the seats and door panels, a new fuel-injection system for the 4.3-liter V6 and a sport package for crew cab models.

S10 zq8

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab LS ZQ8 Rwd SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

The S10 is, in my opinion, a great value in today's automotive market. Yes the design is old and the engine is not the most refined. GM will fix that in a few months with the release of the all new Colorado and Canyon. However, the S10 gets the job done quite well. With the ZQ8 package and a strong V6, I can tackle the curvy backroads as well as weekend chores. I do pay a price for the tight suspension. The ride is harsh. Right now is a great time to take advantage of the rebates and finance rates. My truck is loaded. I paid thousands under sticker and I have no intrest to pay. If that's not a great deal I don't know what is.
