Pros

Its a Chevy....The 4.3 is a snotty little motor, real torquey. 4x4 works great. Gets suprisingly good gas mileage.  Starts great in -30

Cons

Its an automatic.  A little cramped inside, but thats expected.  Gets a little loud inside.

Good Little Truck — I bought the truck with 31,000 miles on it and its ran great for 5,000 miles so far. The 4.3 will suprise you sometimes with its power and the 4 speed auto connected to it gets the job done. Only problem has been the brakes but it was mostly because of faulty parts.

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

I Love The Look Of The Zr2. The 4.3 - 4l60e Power Train Combination Is One Of The Best. — The rugged off road look originally caught my eye. I knew from other peoples experience that one could get many trouble free miles out of the 4.3 V6. After owning this truck for 15 years it is like an old trusty friend.

Reliable Dependable Farm And City Truck — Outstanding reliable dependable pickup truck used for ranching, hunting, city driving hauling branches and fire wood. The 1998 manual chevrolet S-10 pickups are in high demand in western arkansas! These pickup trucks are used for ranching, farming, broiler poultry production, rabbit production, etc 16 to 21 MPG with adverage 18 MPH. Long distance highway flat roads has occasionly produced 40 MPG. I changed 2 air sensors!

I Saved It From The Scrapyard. — 1998 S10 SS Quick little truck. Problematic. Mine has 260,000 miles on it and it still goes. Had to replace MANY parts though. Factory SS package. with a 2"/3" drop kit. Minnesota truck so you know it's starting to rust out from the bottom up. Trying to rebuild it to its factory appearance.

9 G Bars — This car is sick with the exception of having no power windows. Which just means gotta be done the old fashion way straight crank. Word to the wise its a fun car to drive when you low to the ground, but it scrapes on virtually everything.

Peice Of Crap — Too small cabin interior, no power, fuel mileage nowhere near what should have been expected from a vehicle like that. It was a good looking truck and probably would be great for someone else, just didnt do it for me.

If you're looking for a small, reliable truck that gets good gas mileage and still gets the job done.

Cons

Not the most spacious and luxurious vehicle...

Thumbs Up In My Book. — Sturdy truck; great styling for its era; factory paint doesn't last; 2.2L 4Cyl. is sloooww; reliable; cheap and easy to repair; at least 25MPG; lowrider/daily driver = steady maintenance. One of the most driven vehicles on the road and one of General Motors greatest creations styling and build.
