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.

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

Could Be Better — its a truck does what it should although not very fuel efficient because of a crappy intake design but other than that it has been a very reliable good truck good if you don't like driving a truck because it drives more like a car

Pros

Easy to drive, comfortable and safe. Good braking and handling for rear wheel drive.
With a Chevy, easy to maintain. Mechanics know it well.

Cons

The gas mileage is probably fine, in the 20's, but that's too low for me.

Classic, Light Duty Pickup. The Kind Of Of Truck Detroit Knows How To Build — Good solid truck. Can haul heavy loads when needed and can fit a surprising amount of stuff in that small bed. Computerized system alerted me to some small problems before they became large. Needs to be better on gas if its so small. I would hold onto if I was keeping my carpentry business.

A Great Truck For Just Having Some Fun. — Overall I have to say i love my truck, even its stock configuration performs very well, I think that chevy should have made all of there trucks Posi Rear end though. having a uni-wheel sucks in the winter, accelerates pretty fast but the brakes could use some tuning. Very solid built truck that has the nice power of a 4.3L vortec pushing out just over 200HP on a light frame makes a fun ride. very nice looking trucks as there is a lot of work you can do here and there to make it even more beautiful.

Way Too Fast. — This truck has a 4 cylinder engine with a turbo pushing 20 pounds of boost. No repairs ever needed. No dents of scratches the interior is in excellent shape. It has 111,000 miles on it and it is not a fun truck to drive bc it will not stay on the road.

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.
