I could have done better...
By What was I thinking? on


1998 Chevrolet S-10 LS 2dr Regular Cab SB


My gut instinct was not to buy this
truck, but somehow that day I kinda
liked it. The possibility of a few
quirks would have been acceptable since
I only needed it for home ownership
purposes. When I took it to an
independent mechanic I learned it
couldn't even pass a simple state
safety inspection. Poor build quality
had sent it to be traded in, and the
dealer wouldn't give it the help it
needed without added cost. There are
several, better choices out there for
the consumer to choose from.

Best Features

Nice profile, feels roomy, easy to understand and operate controls and a great A/C...so far.

Worst Features

On 3 of 5 S-10 trucks I know of, the spare tire fell out while in motion. Broken safety wire, a high speed death trap? Get a swing arm like Ford. GM trucks long known for wiper failure during rain. Invest a buck or two for public safety or kill production of this vehicle.
