I feel like it meets all my needs. I dont drive to far places and I dont take lots of people around town with me. It runs good, not fast, but good. it is comfortable and sporty. I like it.


Best Features

Wheels, color, extened cab for golf clubs and comfort.


Worst Features

Engine needs a power upgrade. more standard power options.

Review

I bought this S-10 with the 2.2L/5
Speed - yet otherwise it's loaded even
to having the premium CD player audio.
The 4 Cyl is okay power-wise once you
realize it comes alive up in the rev
band when you need to accelerate. The
A/C all but kills the poor engine
however - but it does blow ice cubes.
There is enough room for my 6'1" self -
the bonus of the lower seating. For
me, of course the seat is jammed fully
back without the luxury of reclining -
so I don't use those break-prone
parts... of course my lumbar support
is long gone. The seats are too hard.
The wiper control issue is a major
safety problem! Positives are great
economy and solid body at 100K+


Best Features

Solid tight chassis @100K+ miles and excellent fuel economy top my list. The 4 cyl power is better than expected if you keep the revs up. Nice paint job and better than expected room are a major plus. I like the retained power for the radio - along with the automatic exit lamps.


Worst Features

The windshield wiper issue should be a recall issue. Better interior materials and hardware (doors rattle from the factory stereo - yet never from the hardest bumps). The A/C should not choke even the high- reving/limited low-end torque 4 cylinder as much as it does.

Review

The high-energy ignition module kills
a set of wires every 25K miles.Until
you recognize that, it will make you
insecure. As soon as you feel that
first stutter, probably on a wet day,
change them immediately.
When it's got good wires, it runs like
a champ. 103K so far, still getting
28MPG on a commute, I've had as high
as 35 MPG on a trip w/ 5 speed, 4 cyl.


Best Features

Auto headlight sensor.


Worst Features

Identify the need for high-energy wires, standard wires can breakdown in 5K miles.Eliminate body tilt.

Review

Well, I can't say I havent been
totally dispointed.. But, I have owned
this truck since it was brand new. I
had to replace the transmission at
35,000 miles (which sucks). My wiper
blades went out and than broke. But,
other than that this truck has never
has left be stuck somewhere. It's
gets okay gas mileage. The
performance sucks, it doesnt have a
lot of pick up, but that is probably
because I have an auto.


Best Features

The interior is very nice for a Compact truck


Worst Features

Learn how to build transmissions and add some horsepower to the little V4......
