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.

Great little truck

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

Got truck for my daughter last year. She need transportation to work. It still looks new. Only had to replace the battery the other day. That was normal and good for 4 years. I put a top on it and it work well for shopping. No leaks.

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

Bought brand new in June 2003, excellent value at time of purchase. Initially was a temporary replacement for my daily driver that needed transmission repair and planned to sell after 2 years of use but was extremely satisfied with overall performance, average 24-25 mpg and cheap maintenance. No breakdowns in 4 years, 50k miles that I held off selling and may just keep until another great deal comes along.




Dependable truck

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

Have enjoyed this truck since purchasing. Ride is good for a truck, handles well, good gas mileage. Performs adequately on flat or rolling hills unless you are on an interstate. Do not get the 2.2L 4 cyl engine if you live in the mountains or hilly country. Also bad glare from instrument panel at night on back window. Would buy this truck again but with an engine upgrade. Never had one problem after leaving the dealership.




Good truck for the buck

It's a good truck i'm happy with what I got for the price but it needs a little more leg room and power but other that that it's a all around good truck I suggest you buy it but get an extracab.

The s-10

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

It is a simple truck and I recommend it only for commercial usage for it is not a family car (truck). It is not entirely good looking but once again, this truck is not for the style, but for the dirty and tough jobs. It is like a Blazer minus 3 seats and 1/2 of the roof. Has an old body design (dated back to about 1995). Oh yeah, there is one more thing, check out on this site the 2004 Chevy Colorado.
