Buy it Again.

Vehicle2003 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd LB (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewPurchased 10 months ago, we have 15k miles on the truck with no issues. With the 4 cyl and 5 speed transmission plus a tonneau cover (highly recommend) this truck gets 28-30 mpg with A/C running, loaded bed and running 75-80 mph. I just changed from Valvoline to Mobile 1 0w30 and fuel economy went from 28 to 30 mpg. Note- to get performance from this engine shift at 4- 4500 rpms. Peak HP is at 5200 rpm. You have to drive it like a Honda not a V8 Chevy to get it to run. I did a lot of research, and talked to the mgr. of an Advance Auto Parts, they use the same truck with auto trans as parts runners. They run 100-150K abusive miles with no problems.
Best FeaturesStyling, fuel economy, seats, cold A/C, tight steering, short throw shifter, cup holders, auto lights, ABS. Great value for the price.
Worst FeaturesElectric fan for cooling would free up additional hp, a little more leg room, We should have bought extended cab. Plastic used on dash/doors could be better. New Colorado seems to have addressed these issues.
