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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

gas mileage, simplicity, durability


Suggested Improvements

Make the seats higher, make the interior less ugly, make the exterior less ugly, make the gearbox better.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Victory Red has been THE color for this region. Southeast N. Carolina.


Suggested Improvements

Dear uncle GM, Please cancel the Colorado and bring back the S-10

Review

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!


Favorite Features

V6 has power.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality control on the body and door fit, give a better warranty from GM to cover all the defects.

Review

Bought this S-10 in May of 2005 overall is a great truck, but the flaws are it shift with a temperment some times she is happy sometimes she is mad! Really Mad!! Overall ride quailty is good on long trips and the wallet still has some cash in it after the 25MPG. If you dont mind a few MPG get the 6 - cylinder you will be glad you did! It is just more fun to drive and you dont have to ride with the hazard lights on while getting up to speed on the interstate! Overall cannot complane never been stranded or brokedown knock on wood!


Favorite Features

LS standard automatic lights~


Suggested Improvements

Little better gas mileage for those who opt for the 4-cylinder.

Review

I have owned this 2003 S-10 for 8 months, I've had it in the service shop over 9 times... Tranmission shifts really hard, and big delay when slowing down, then speeding up.


Favorite Features

Perfect height.


Suggested Improvements

Better transmission, brakes, audio.
