Classic Looks, Dependibility, Easy To Customize. Rare. — First generation S-10's have a classic body style and I fell in love with my 88 S-10 4x4 extended cab. In 2010, I found an older guy locally that had kept this STD Cab 93 4x4 in great condition and it only had 63k original miles on it! I jumped all over it, and have slowly transformed the outside of it to where it is one of a kind. Love my truck! There are 80k miles on it now, and it runs perfect.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Not Bad Overall But It Needs A Small Block V8 — hardly any highlites about performance built to last like most GM's runs great no problems not a bad looking truck if all the paint mached lol only paid 180 bucks and a junk truck for it and its been running fine for 4 months and gets about 25 mpg and good rates for insurance so its pretty cheap to own love the 5 speed but the motors lacking muscle but its not bad for torque in low gears and she gets sideways pertty easy

I Would Defiantly Buy Another One. — I dont like the dash but other than that its nice. performance wise it is a 2.5L with a 5 speed so it will go but i want a little more. I added dual exhaust because a friend had some pipe and thought it would be different so i like that. its straight piped (no cats no muffler) and comes out at 45's.Future 350 build????? idkk

Fun To Work On — Performance depends on the motor i have a crappy 2.8 so acceleration sucks but its fun in a field build quality isnt spectactular but its american built appearance needs alot of work just cause its older cost of ownership is cheap cause its american fun factor is around 7 of 10

If You Can Get One, Try To Get A Larger Model, Maybe Something With 4wd — Performance- acceleration feels nice, braking is awsome, and its handling is starting to need work. Build Quality- needed to replace the clutch once since I've owned it, believe it is the only new clutch it has seen since it was built in '93. Appearance- Rust is its only enemy at this point. Has racing stripes which go with the truck nice. Cost of ownership- Great gas mileage, and it is a pretty common make, so cost of parts are not that expensive. Fun Factor- Will never get rid of it!

Pros

I would drive this truck if I did not mind what other people had to say about the age and not so savy styling.

Cons

If you are all about what is "now" and everyone else is into this is not the truck for you especially if you dont enjoy properly maintaining a vehicle...

My Final Word On This Truck Is, Yes. Mpg's Are Not Too Great But You'll Like This Truck. — Performance, its one of those things where it feels like you have a lot of power under the hood when you really don't. With the 4.3L V6 it is pretty brawny and if you open her up she'll pin you into the seat a little bit but the limited amount of punch reminds you that you are in a little truck. Quality, my dad bought this truck from a friend of his he worked with a few years ago and at 179,835mi on the odometer I can make a 90 mile trip with no serious problems though if I try to maintain a speed over 70mph the engine begins to overheat. This brings me to recommend a 93' S-10 for relatively easy work commutes or light towing jobs. Appearance, The boxy shape of the entire truck was a "no go" for me when I first started driving it but the boxy shape grew on me in the sense that it was a little more unique than generic to the thousands of other round styled cars and trucks I see more of today. Overall, I would recommend this truck to anyone who wants a vehicle easy to maintain with its North-South, engine orientation and not so complicated inner workings. Everything I have ever had to replace in this truck was a sinch. The most expensive thing I have had to replace was the radiator but that was because of rust build up. I did not watch the radiator fluid amounts like I should have and it became more water than antifreeze for a while. I love this truck. lol

Interior layout.

Alot Of Character On Outside. Inside Could Use Work. Overall, Great Little Truck. — The exterior has alot of character. The 2.8L V6 has alot of "Get-up and Go Power". The down side, is the control layout. It can be very difficult to find the control you're looking for, while driving. It definitly rides like a truck though. Mine is the 5 speed standard edition, and it rides like a fun old truck.
