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


Review

Highly versatile truck does everything well. Just reached 50,000 miles with only a few cosmetic problems. Motor does a good job. Peppy, but no speed demon. Driver/front passenger in comfortable well laid out interior. Back seat room for children/ short trips only. 4.3L V-6 good torque/hp but geared for low-speed power & economy. Wide turning radius can be a problem in tight areas. Doesn't like quick turns either. Having bought the vehicle in one of it's later years of production. I expected to have less fit & finish problems already worked out. Slightly disappointed with that. Still this highly versatile vehicle just "Gets'er done.


Best Features

ZR-5 Package.

Review

My father worked for GM all his life, you could say that GM helped raise me. So when it came to make a choice on vehicles I had to go with a Chevy S- 10. It has been great. The AC works well, radio rocks out! The auto volume was the best invention ever made.


Best Features

4x4 on the fly, Radio CD/cassette


Worst Features

Better gas mileage and longer bed.

Review

Poor excuse for a pickup bed, but the only thing you can't haul is a 2X4 (if you open the slider you can get a 12'in if you hang on to it :). Great mid life kids/yardwork/misc projects vehicle. Gas mileage sucks, but no worse than anything else in this league. The residual power, auto headlights, and power everything are awesome. Chevy did a great job improving the brakes for 2002. This is a fair/cold weather vehicle, like all S-10's over the past few years, the heater seems to always be on. The A/C works VERY well, but it seems odd that you cannot force cool air out of the system when it is 40deg outside without turning on the A/C.


Best Features

Lots of power, 2 kid seats in the back and still bring the wife and 1000lbs of pellet fuel, christmas tree, or coolers and tents for the camping trip. Towing is very good for a 4000lb trailer.


Worst Features

This is my 7th S-10 (can you say "Rutt". I have had issues with all of the transmissions and wiper motors - All of them! Now they have dis-continued the S-10 line after NO PROBLEMS with anything on this truck. If you want an S-10, pay the extra for a late model. Tony

Review

Great overall truck for the "budget" minded. Pulls my 18 foot boat like a dream. Would like to see a tail gate open light installed on future models. I droped my payload on the road not knowing my son opened up the tailgate.


Best Features

Push button 4x4 on the fly.


Worst Features

Would like to see a tail gate open light installed on future models. I droped my payload on the road not knowing my son opened up the tailgate. Wind noise is a bit more than I prefer.

Review

This is my second S-10 and if they were still making them after this year I would buy another one. No problems out of my old one (1997 w/ 70,000) and none out of this one. The 4x4 is great, the motor will pull down a house, and the locking rear end rocks.


Best Features

4x4, Rear Locker, 6 Disc In Dash CD, HD Suspension Package, in short Everything!!!


Worst Features

None, (well, maybe a V8 option)
