Pros

Very reliable/Unique body style

Cons

Expected better gas mileage

S10 Crew — Good performance with decent acceleration . A little more sluggish and slower on the brake now that it is lifted and has bigger tires but still handles great. Very solid build and appearance even though my bed space is limited with four doors. Gas mileage isn't great but it is right in the middle around 16-17 mpg. Tons of fun great for offroading can take abuse and keep going.

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

Best First Truck I've Ever Owned — I've had my truck for almost 2 years now and I have had nothing but trouble out of the thing. Changing the oil is one of the most dawnting tasks to preform. The oil filter is at such a weird position, its almost impossible to get to. The truck is a little weak in the performance area but it is after all a 4 cylinder. It does sound however like a beast. Gas milage isn't that bad if you have clean fuel lines unlike me. I was driving on 3 cylinders for awhile and only getting 9 mpg. The interior is actually spacious and this is coming from a 6'2 guy. The S-10 is a highly customizable car with millions of ways to do it. I've had numerious problems with the e-brake but it does help if the people install it right the first time. The ride is smooth, handling is pretty good. It preforms pretty amazing off-road for a 2WD. Its cheap and easy to maintain (besides changing the oil filter) but you'll have to do it often.

A Great All Around Vehicle — I drive a 02 s-10 extreme with a 4.3 V6. It has quite a bit of power for a small pickup truck, im satisfied with the performance on it. It is 5 speed manual, and is a blast to drive, it could use a little more power but for a first car it is perfect all around. It has style, performance, comfort, and its a good time.

2002 4.3l 5 Speed S10 — If your taller than six foot get an extended cab. The only choice for the engine is the V6. The exterior of S10 is nice and simple. If you want to spend some cash you can customize this truck to make it look one of a kind.

Pros

Its an S10........nothing awesome, it just doesn't suck.

Cons

don't like the brake system, speed sensors seem to go out a lot. At 50 bucks a crack that adds up. Also the oil lines for the relocation kit suck, am now replacing a motor cause a blew one on the freeway.

02 Huntin/fishin Truck — I'm very pleased with this as a Wi truck and would recommend this to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet reliable truck. Not for the Baja circuit but suits me just fine for the tank trails of FT McCoy for hunting & fishing.
