Wouldn't Give It Up For The World...unless I Got An Eclipse. — Performance is great its needed a repair already but that was my dads fault the appearance is nice would be better with some seat covers though gas mileage isnt horrible but still pretty bad and yes its fun to drive.

Why Did Chevy Stop Making This Model, The Colorado Doesn't Hold A Candle To It. — The Silver Bullet had a good run. In the end a near-totalling wreck in 2007 just prior to a few years of me being overseas and it not being used regularly caught up with it and its engine couldn't take the stress of a Texas/Ark/Alabama summer heat wave and that was all she wrote. Without the wreck in 2007 and all the replacement parts it had to sustain as a result, i have no doubt this truck would still be driving, well past 200,000 miles and 10 yrs of me owning it.

Push button Rugged 4WD that will perform

Cons

I Love My Truck! — I love my truck, body style, features, push button 4WD. I've had very little problems with mine, and anything that has needed fixing, the warranty has covered it. It's pretty bad on gas, so I complain a lot during the summer but I love it come winter time. I know I'll get to where I need to go no matter the weather condition.

2003 Chevy S-10 Ls Extented Cab — great truck, lowerd,zq8, driveshaft sucks, third door handle breaks if you put to much pressure on it. Is ok on gas mileage for this type of truck, it gets about 19 to 20 mpg. Stock tires suck get better tires.

Pros

great off road... good power

Cons

sluggish on acceleration

25

My Zr2 — one of a kind.....needs more power and a little bit more style. could benifit from some kind of power adder.... maybe a gearing upgrade. definatly needs nicer wheels rather than the soccer ball wheels. could also use a cool paint job

Pros

its small enough to be a car but functional as a truck

Cons

prone to malfunction

Fun First Car — the preformance was lacking due to a leak of some kind but was still alot of fun to drive due to the transmission. the build quiality although not shotty was not to par and could have used some more love for instance sometimes the hood would get stuck? i mean wth. the vehicle in my eyes was beauitifull partially due to the after market rims and tailights. cost of ownership was not too much because it was a repoed vehicle. the vehicle was very much fun.

S-10's Suck! — I hated my S-10! Where I live, winter is the most prominent season of them all and I would get stuck in 2 inches of snow and would have to call a friend to help get me out! My Dakota, never got stuck where I couldn't get myself out.

Pros

Good on gas, fun drive

Cons

Mine has iffy breaks

25

I Love It — This car is great it picks up nice, even better with aftermarket parts. One thing I'm not a fan of is the breaks, but that might just be mine. It's a fun car to drive 4x4 works great. Back seats have limited amount of space though and if you want to mount subwoofers good luck there is no space any where.
