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.

S10 — Breaking was quick, vision was good (small blind spot areas), the manual transmission was fun to drive. Great gas milage for a 4WD vehicle. Had a bed liner for hauling whatever you want to, and had jumper seats for a few extra passengers.

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.

Pros

MPG highway

Cons

Lack of power to toe anything.

615

Laughable — 2.2 liter engine, extreamly good MPG considering they said 20 on highway an got 32mpg with an auto. no power to pull anything with the 2.2 needed the 4.3 but that was 350 more per monthly lease payment. buy a real truck not a kids pedal car.

Very Nice. Great Value For The Money. Strong Truck. — This truck will take you anywhere and even through any kind of mud or water. It's very dependable and I would drive this truck anywhere. It's roomy to be a smaller truck and is very appealing and stylish to the eye.

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.

Taken Off The Road — I do like the truck as a yard truck. I am able to pull trees with dual 6" truns out of the ground by the roots. I will probably put a plow on it & use it for my private road.

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.
