1986 Chevrolet S-10Review
Steve writes:

Typical High School Vehicle — It was ugly, loud, horrible on gas (it leaked what it didn't burn), uncomfortable, slow, and falling apart, but it my high school vehicle. The only major problem that developed in the year I owned it was a problem somewhere between the engine and transmission, but no one knew for sure what it was. It started me into off-roading, where the horrible ground clearance and massive lack of power and proper gears made it a non-performer.

Pros: I can't remember any

Cons: Pretty much the whole truck

Great Overall Truck By Cakana

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
