2003 Chevrolet S-10 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Just bought this 4-dr S-10 and I love it. I traded in a 2001 Grand Am GT and I don't miss it a bit. There is as much room inside as the Grand Am. Handles wonderfully in the ice and snow and the "switch-on-the-fly" 4 wheel drive is wonderful.


Favorite Features

Easy 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive function, True 4 door, overhead console storage, info and a very smooth ride and the hidden storage behind the back seat.


Suggested Improvements

Better sound system in the Crew Cab (Monsoon)

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


Review

What a pile this truck is. I got the base model with the 4 cylinder and 5 speed. The tach goes to 6000 rpm, but once you hit about 4300 rpm, the engine sounds like it's going to blow up. The tranny grinds gears constantly and sounds like it has 200K miles on it. Annoying as hell shift light. Rattles since new. Front suspensions squeaks. ONLY about 22 MPG, though it's rated higher. There was a tether to the gas cap, but that broke off after about 20 tanks of gas.


Favorite Features

Base model came with A/C, tach, intermittent wipers and power steering. These feature usually cost extra. Not enough to redeem the rest of this crappy product though.


Suggested Improvements

Jack up the windsheild wipers and slide a Toyota underneath.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Economic gas milage! I drive 40 miles to work and 40 miles home.


Suggested Improvements

Raise it 6 to 8 inches. I am 6'4" tall and get them because I don't like crowling out of a car that is low to the ground.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

*Available 3rd extra seat *Air Conditioning *Good Safety Rating


Suggested Improvements

*New body design is needed. (Chevy Colorado is the reinvented version of the S-10 but doesn't come out until 2004) *Needs to be more comfortable.
