Pros

If you have the money to spend look into a Toyota Tacoma.

Cons

Poor fuel economy average build quality nothing special.

Excellent Vehicle For The Cost Very Reliable Motor. — Plenty of power (4.3L engine) Reliable truck no problems yet just keep up on the service intervals. Handles like a truck id say its the best handling mid-sized truck. Build quality is noting to be desired mid grade interior nothing fancy. Appearance is nice great body lines and grille is typical chevy like. Cost of Ownership is quite average for any midsized truck although you will consume more fuel than most with the 4.3L trim. It will get you where you need to go perfect for heavy snow climates or anywhere 4x4 is needed.

Great Little Truck. — For a truck has pretty damn good handling and acceleration. Braking is so so could use an upgrade. Gas mileage is not so good get around 18 when i drive normal and about 25 when im driving like a grandma thats 50/50 city/highway

Awesome performance and sturdyness. Very fun to drive.

Cons

Gas Guzzler.

1999 S-10 Zr2 — I have the zr2 off-road package. I am running a re-built V6 under the hood. This truck has fantastic performance! It accelerates quickly, especially for being a truck. When accelerating from stop, the sound of the engine is beautiful and you can feel the power. It brakes very good too, even at high speeds. This truck handles like a charm! Suprising i know, but it is extremely easy to control. It is a solid truck, I bought it used with a blown engine so of course i have been repairing this and that, but all in all its sturdy. I think the s-10 has a good look to it! Especially the off road package with the big tires and jacked up body. One downside to this truck is that it is a gas guzzler. I get 20mpg if I'm extremely lucky. This truck is REALLY FUN to drive, especially in the winter when you can slide around (which is ok cuz the handling rocks).

Pros

It was sweet on the eyes.

Cons

Its a discontinued lemon, meaning they dont make them anymore. If you want a reliable compact pickup try a Ford Ranger.

Idk — It was a top of the line stepside, extended cab S-10. Included the leather seats and bose premium sound system it was just a cluncker from the assembly line. It only had about 30 k on it when i sold it because i was tired of dumping money into it! Im a die hard FORD man now!

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

Hauls ass

Cons

Eats tires.....

Chevy S-10 — I'm not sure if i have the right model here, but it's a 3 door, with AWD, and a shortbed, mind you I don't know about the widestance part. The 4.3 vortec has lots of balls. the tranny is geared more for towing, but if you put your foot down it can really haul ass. I've heard its governed at 160 km/h, but i wouldnt want to do much more that 115 - 120 on stock suspension and stearing, feels reall loose at higher speeds. Its a fun truck to drive mind you, with the massive power plant relative to the weight of this little truck. With the option to go in either RWD or AWD you can really have some good times around corners and round-abouts. again the transmission limits burnouts, unless thats just a sign that the truck needs a tune-up, not sure really. Haven't check. Dad wont let me really get at his baby ;) The truck itself seems pretty solid, and its not like its going to fall apart on the road. It's a well buit truck. Overall, its a great little truck, and I would love to actually own one.

Nice Off Road And Utility Vehicle. — The engine on this vehicle is great very reliable. The brakes are a weak point and the suspension wears out quickly. The interior is well laid out just a little on the small side. Is very prone to rust in the usual spots on third door, fender wells and cab corners.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
