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.

Best s-10

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet S-10 3dr Extended Cab Rwd SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

This is the best s-10 I have ever driven in the s-10 models with the 4 cylinder engine impressed me very much so.. And the handling was shaky at first but found out front shock needed to be replaced after that it is a all around good buy

Fair vehicle

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet S-10 3dr Extended Cab Rwd SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

For anyone looking for a light weight truck, this is the best. Packs a 2.2L 4-banger which has plenty of power for around the town and small trip driving. Fuel economy is good on highway (27mpg), bad in city (15mpg). Might just of been my truck, but the GM paint job was not at all to my liking. Many paint bubbles/imperfections found throughout the truck.

I have had Chevy S-10 pickup trucks for over 10 years. And It was time for a new vehicle of course I had to get a third Chevy S-10. My first two S-10's I put over 300,000 miles on them. And am looking forward to putting 200,000 miles on this one.

I've never had any issues with my 1993 S-10 pick-up and that's why I was comfortable buying a Blazer. Are these items normal wear and tear - or did I get myself into a load of repairs??...

I am looking for some answers. I have a 2003 S-10 p/u. The problems are: the wipers won't shut off, the ABS and the Brake lights come on, and the a/c blower quits blowing. This doesn't happen all of...
