Mixed Feelings
By Gordon on


2001 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


This was my first brand new vehicle and I have mixed feelings. It HAS lasted almost five years straight. I have driven it repeatedly off road and pulled little bush stumps with it. On the OTHER hand, with less than 1000 miles on it a coolant leak developed behind the dash, turning that new car smell into that rotting corpse smell. It's also extremely underpowered. I have actually considered turning off the A/C when merging onto a fast highway. And I have to replace a blown A/C fuse about twice a year. As it nears 90K miles, most of the engine seals are leaking. In the end, it is just what I paid for: a cheap little truck that will take care of you if you take care of it.

Best Features

Manual transmission is good for getting unstuck. A/C is critical in Georgia.

Worst Features

Had to buy a toolbox for my gear. Could be wider to fit that third passenger in without hitting the gearshift.
