Good truck, but bad mechanically

1998 Chevrolet S-10 LS 2dr Regular Cab SB


My S-10 is my first vehicle ever owned. I was very excited to get it, on accounts of I had heard S-10's were great. I bought it used with 39,000 miles on it, and yes, it was a '98. The first month I had it, the transmission went out. 39,000 miles! I was very frustrated, it was an expensive repair. Hoping it would be the last thing, I went on. But it's just been one thing after another. The trans, the A/C, the water pump, and the shocks. I should have gotten rid of it after the trans, but kept it because I liked it. The truck looks great though, good design inside and out, and very little cosmetic problems. Good chassis and ride. I would buy another S-10, even with the problems I had.

Best Features

Comfortable, looks great, good power for little engine, durable body.

Worst Features

Even though the S-10 is no longer made, I would have to say all mechanical things in general.
