Pros

2wd & 4wd hi/lo buttons inside cab, low maintenance, good style, will drive through ANYTHING

Cons

3rd seat, although its really fun watching friends try to cram back there

My Little Dude! — Performance- Acceleration's alright, could be better but nothing a few aftermarket kits couldn't fix. Braking is great, even on slippery roads or in snow. Handling is very responsive, esp. for a truck. Build Quality- I've only replaced the 3rd door handle, which cracked because it's made of plastic and the truck is 8 years old. A $30 part. Solid otherwise. No squeaks or rattles, be prepared for some road noise with the bigger off road tires, however. Appearance- Interior is very rugged and durable. Cloth and vinyl. Replaced the cassette deck with a CD player and it's perfect now. Center console set up is extremely useful. Exterior is great. Models range from off road style package to an extreme sport package. The LS is the happy medium, with nice looks and great functionality. Cost of Ownership- Gas mileage is fairly decent for a truck of this size. Another great reason to be able to switch between 2 & 4 wheel drive. Maintenance is minimal. Regular oil changes and a quick look over are all that's really needed. Fun Factor- Its no sports car, but this truck is fun to drive. It will get you where you need to go, no matter the weather. I'd recommend this truck to anyone. Its a great first vehicle but its also a great all around vehicle.

A Good Truck With Good Fuel Efficiency And Looks — This is a very nice looking truck. It is very well made and feels as if it will last forever, the one I have has already exceeded 350,000 miles, and it's a moderately modified 4-cylinder engine, not the v6, which will last even longer. At this point there is a little surface rust showing in the bed but it is otherwise intact and runs as good as ever. The trucks only flaw is that it has absolutely terrible performance. Even with all the mods I made to my truck (Air intake, chip, header, exhaust, TB spacer, electric fan, under drive pulley kit, 180 degree thermostat, limited slip rear end with deeper gear ratio), the truck was still was dog slow. However, with the aid of a lowering kit, traction bars, and some polyurethane bushings, the truck handled surprisingly well.

Hard-to-beat Truck For The Price. — I have the ZR2 package on my truck and BF Goodrich all-terrain tires and would have to say this truck is pretty tuff. Have had no major problems other than a front wheel bearing, granted I do keep up on regular maintenance. It's not the best on wet pavement but on snow or mud is hard to beat, especially for the price. The motor has great torque and pretty decent power for a truck this size. Wish it was a little easier to add substantial bolt- on power but that is asking allot. The biggest downfall would have to be the seats and the turning radius, but when in snow or mud, with enough room, put your foot in it and that problem is gone (forgot to mention the handles on everything like to break). Overall one my favorite vehicles I have owned.

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

If You Don't Have To Contend With Snow I Would Highly Recommend The S10. If You Do Have Snow Well — normally i would never buy a 2x4 truck because of the snow and traction. but now that i live in florida i don't have to worry about that. i got my truck with only 28k miles on it and as i write i just broke 32k on the odometer. i really love this truck. it is well built, has lots of power for what i use it for as a daily driver. the interior is well placed, easy to use and has all functions easily within reach. i did some upgrades to make the truck look nice and to put my personal touch on it. there are lots of accessories to choose from for the s10 from plenty of dealers. you should not have a problem getting what you want and installed too. i really love my lil s10 and highly recommend them as a mini truck.

Bagged S10 — Love it.So much aftermarket accessories for this truck. Can look different every year if you wanted it to. It gets good gas mileage. There's parts available everywhere. Just look at mine as an example what you can do from lowering it to lifting it.

Pros

Great truck, average on gas mileage, 4wd when I need it, reliable

Cons

Not the flashiest car on the road but probably one of the most dependable.

Old Reliable S-10 — This truck has been nothing but nice to me. I've put close to 100,000 miles on the vehicle since I have bought it and the only thing out of regular maintenance I've had to do was a fuel pump. The cab is a little louder than I would want while driving but nothing that makes it intollerable. Fairly plain exterior which has probably good since I haven't had a problem with cops gunning for me. I have enough confidence that I expect to see close to another 100,000 out of it.

S 10 — it has great get up and go. Great offroad cappability, is able to get through anything! has a big 4.3 vortec engine which can smoke other cars. not the best gas milage but it makes its money in hauling. But you can throw a bunch of stuff in the bed and go on a road trip. a must buy

Pros

great drift truck. & it will beat the new chevy colorado/ gmc canyon

Cons

it needs a 6 speed manual tranny & a better rear differential, stock abs breaking,

Chevy S10/ Gmc Sonoma — well its a L4 with a 5 speed transmission, ive up graded tha engine, suspension, & exhaust so it performs like a v6. its up keep isnt very high, but i have had to do an engine swap (bad radiator). tha abs breaking sucks ass. & depending on how you drive it, it will sip on gas like a honda. romp on it one good time, youll find yourself sideways in a heart beat, have fun watching your gas hand go down. over all it is a great truck! i love driving it every day i get into it.

The low look, the aftermarket sound system, the overal feel of the truck, I love mini trucks!

Engine is too weak with an automatic, smells like a smokers car, wish I could squeeze out some more power without spending money!

S-10 Xtremes Are The Only Way To Go In Mini Trucks! — Love my truck! I wish it was an extended cab but I'll take what I can get. Used to be a smokers car so it smells a little bit but I still love it. It's a 4 cylinder with auto trans. Slides around real nice after it rains. I've installed a Kenwood KDC-X92 head unit with iPod hookup, a Blauplunkt 300-watt amp under the driver's seat, and a 10-inch JBL subwoofer in a home made box behind the driver's seat. Gives the truck a little umpf! Installed smoked out taillights and white turn signals up front. Has a soft top tonneu cover that can roll up and a rubber matt protecting the truck bed.
