2003 Chevrolet S-10 2dr Regular Cab Rwd LB (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Purchased 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

Best Features

Styling, fuel economy, seats, cold A/C, tight steering, short throw shifter, cup holders, auto lights, ABS. Great value for the price.

Worst Features

Electric 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.
