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…

Not toooo bad...not too impressed

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

My chevy is slow. That's a fact. Edmunds claimed my four banger has a 0-60 time of 8 some seconds. That is a lie. The true time is around 15 seconds. it's ok off the line but it simply doesn't move once you get up there, and god forbid if you should try to pass anyone. The interior feels durable but also cheap and ugly in blobular chevy style. Gas mileage is pretty decent, i get around 23 average. The gearbox in my manual however, completely sucks. I've hit third on accident more than once at a stop sign because they are so darn close together, and the clutch feel unfriendly and prickly-if you want to shift smooth, you have to be extremely gentle. Not a terrible car but i won't miss it.




2003 s-10 still going strong

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

Purchased new in'03 the only trouble has been a battery replacement and a few exterior lamps. Still has original tires with 48000 miles. Good preventive maintenance is the key. The V6 4.3l engine is a bit rough on the wallet with gas prices as they are, but, all in all this truck can get out of its' own way when it has to.




Falling apart too soon

The air compressor went out at 39,000 miles, the rear wheel bearings and the U joints at 41,000. I am lucky I bought the extended warranty. This is my last S10!

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.

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??...
