Not For Those Who Want A Real Truck — overall a decent small pickup truck, good mpg's, built pretty strong(mines been in 2 accidents and still running great). except for replacing parts that go bad with age its fairly cheap plus most body parts can be found at a salvage yard.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good beginner vehicle or for a small fuel efficient truck to haul small stuff around a farm or as a runner vehicle

Cons: too small for family or long trips

Nice Looking But Has Its Problems. — The engine has its problems, I have already replaced the engine once. I had to bypass the heater core because it was leaking into the car. I have had to replace the water pump. I love the paint job on it because it has awesome blue flames.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Blue Flames

Cons: To many problems wrong with it

Sexy Mini Truck — very reliable truck, im my opinion s10's have the best body styles out of all mini trucks. the 2.2 liter s10's get pretty good gas mileage especially if u have a 5 speed. and it has decent power

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

Pros: for good gas mileage, and to look good while driving it! lol

Cons: starters go out on them quite often

A Nice Vehicle To Start Out In. — She is a cute little truck, a nice start for me. It handles well, no real problems with brakes or steering. It needs a new passenger side door, from a previous owner. Just trying to find a good time to put the door on. Then that will be out of the way. The outside is all red as of now, but when the other door is put on it will be red with one white door. I payed only $200 for it, it came with a new motor and transmission. Very good on gas, it is like a small car. It is a lot of fun for me to drive she can go pretty fast :)

Pros: Good on gas

Cons: Not a lot of room for passengers

Worst Lemon I Ever Sucked — I bought the S-10 new after rave reviews from friends for previous years. On the drive home from the dealership the idiot light came on... and my brief 2-year ownership was one frustrating idiot repair after another. The strong 4.3L V6 engine was an unintended acceleration nightmare that was never resolved. The cabin vents leaked rainwater, the air conditioning frequently failed, the shifter was noisy, brakes noisy, loose and squeaky interior, noises underhood. What a relief it was to trade it in!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Intended acceleration, 23 mpg

Cons: Unintended acceleration, a/c, shifter, radio, many others

Chevy S10 Zr2 Beauty At Its Finest — the zr2 comes stock with a 3 inch suspension lift and 31x10.5 tires, my truck has 33x12.5 stuffed, 240,000 miles and still runnin strong, the short wheel base of these s10 trucks do better than any other vehicle off road that iv been in, for dam near stock that is.

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

Pros: unique, curbs are your friend, snappy

Cons: the zr2 was never ment for road only

One Of The Best Cars Ever Built. — Good power and excellent gas mileage. Gets about 15 in town and 20 on the highway. Great truck, small, but I don't need that much. The only downside is that the cab is a little small, but I'm good with it.

Pros: Everything you could ask for in one package.

Cons: Never avoid the bowtie!

It Is A Great Get Around Truck — Great reliability, sturdy truck, looks great. It has been a reliable ride for over 130,000 miles, it lacks on acceleration but handles well as long as you have some weight in the back. It is a smaller truck so it is nice to drive around and you don't feel like your hogging the road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a truck

Cons: It's an old model
