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


Review

The S-10 LS crew cab 4wd (4.3L V-6) has been a very reliable vehicle for me. I've got 66,000 miles on my truck and have experienced no major problems. It tows my light trailer well. I live in snow country and have not had any of the 4wd problems I have read in other posts. I wish the mpg was better given current gas prices- I get 19 mpg for mostly in-town driving.


Best Features

Comfortable ride and good power for its size.


Worst Features

It would be generous to call the truck bed small. Don't count on the crew cab version to be used for serious hauling.

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.
