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

looks, ride quality radio

Cons

gas guzzler, too weak for the mileage.

Like A Rock — This truck definately takes a beating and comes back for more. It just drinks from too many straws for the amount of power it puts out. I wouldn't have gotten the lift if I didn't need to replace all 4 shocks. That was a bummer. The idlers arms needed replacing too at 75,000 mi.

Almost everything

Cons

Plastic parts that break in the cold, parts that can get expensive

35

Good Little Truck — My truck is the best, for a V6 it has the power that i need for that get up and good, without spending a fortune in gas. I find the S-10 and the GMC sonoma's to be good looking little trucks. They come in a varity of styles for everyone. Maintance is simple with these trucks, but at times can get expensive (depending ont he part). I have had tons on fun with these trucks, I find they are fun in and out of the mud. The only con I have for these trucks are the plastic parts that sometimes rattle and squeak at times, especially here in the north where we get some cold weather.

very reliable and good mpg

Cons

small exhaust problems occasionally

Mr. Reliable — This is my daily driver and its really reliable and that is all I ask from it. It does a pretty good job on gas, right around 28 mpg. I need to drive back and forth to Ohio State every couple weeks and I can always depend on the S-10 to make the 300 mile round trip without problems

Great to drive

Cons

Bumble X — This was a great looking truck. After spending about $10,000 on extra parts it was a good looking fast moving low rider truck. It had the 4.3 v6 that was alright but really lacked power going from 40 to 60+. This truck was truly a one of a kind truck. I added a aftermarket radio system and performance chip. This truck gets between 20 and 24 mpg in the city and 28 to 31 on the highway when you drive it correctly.

Chevy S-10 — Excellent daily driver, comfortable and has great ac. definately not a speed demon or fun to drive and lacks power immensely. i did get a good deal on it and it runs great. the body isnt anything special to look at but it is nice to have a bed to put stuff in and a tailgate to sit on.

rear end

Good Truck — It's a good truck, but the differential sucks. I only have 75000 on it and I guess the guy before me screwed around with it too much. Those gov-lock rear ends can't take too much wheel spinning. and off road... in the mud, wheels can spin. the truck doesn't get stuck unless the wheels around on the ground, happened to me once, and i dug it out, and was on my way. the wheel bearings are kinda weak, but that's it so far. It is a pretty damn strong truck, and looks pretty good too.

Pros

basic--crank windows, entry-level seats...the thing would have lasted forever

Cons

4-cylinder engine is horribly mis-matched for this vehicle making merging on the freeway an exercise in luck and reckless insanity.

65

Good For Light Hauling And Basic A To B Travel — i don't have much to say about this. it was a basic two door 2-wheel drive truck. good for basic truck needs in all respects. there are better options as far as light trucks go, but i would still recommend it. the thing never let me down, especially when i rolled it and walked away with only scratches from broken glass.

Power, Reliability, Handling, Tough

Electronic Push-Button 4wd (prefer a shift lever)

Great Little Truck — I got this truck with 11 miles on the odometer and haven't had any problems with it except for a bad thermostat seal, but it was covered under warranty. Handles great, has decent power, and is just overall reliable. I like the small size of the truck for fourwheeling.

Pros

cheaper, a lot of potential, solid, easy to modify

Cons

tops out at 100, moderate roll on tighter turns, the seats, not a lot of power outa the factory but if u got the money u can get serious power

25

The Rumble Bee — My S-10 xtreme is the last of its kind. I got a yellow with black stripes 4.3L V-6 manual with all the factory options. Yellow wasn't my first choice but this was the only one I could find that came with the V-6 and the stick shift. Its a fun car that can be easily modified to make it unique. the V-6 is full of potential and i've seen people squeeze 500HP out of the engine. It hits the governor a little below 100mph which sucks since you don't even notice your going that fast and the tachometer is only readin around 3000rpm. The locking rear diff comes in handy for reasonable handling and good burn outs. The sport suspension option does work well enough if you want to leave the whole car stock but you do notice some roll when you hit the tighter turns.

I got this truck for a daily driver and for the snow. It drives great and handles very good in the snow. Only things bad are the size of the truck bed and it eats through gas with its V6 engine. Read More
