    Great Buy — good power with the 4.3 2.8 is worthless, handles well, accelleration is decent, built well. overall no complaints, I would love to get better gas milage, but its a truck. its alot of fun to drive if you know how to go off roading and have a place to go

    Pros: I can go most anywhere

    Cons: Not a ton of seating

    My S10 — from point A to point B there really isnt much more to say bout it. it has a Vortec V6 and it will get up and go before you can think about it. however after 100,000 miles ever thing went down hill. but that is typical on all cars unless they have been garage stored since they were bought.

    Pros: for the most part the parts are cheap

    Cons: always working on it

    Lasts Long — This was a fun lil truck and took us far. I bought it for very little money $3K and got every penny's worth. It still does about 18 mpg which is great by today's standards. It's not all that fun but it did the job and was great moving when I had to cart things. People are always trying to get me to sell it and I've never done anything to upkeep the body (paint is still good it just has a loose side part near the bumper but still looks good)

    Pros: Great mileage, roomy despite the small cab, long bed holds a LOT

    Cons: It does take work to upkeep it

    Idk — The acceleration could use a little more work but it's OK. Braking is great, and the handling of the truck is really good. I have had to have some work done to it, new brakes, rotors, and mirrors.The exterior is really nice, I love the side step, it makes the truck look more slick. Not so crazy about the interior, it could use a little work. But overall it is a fun truck to drive.

    Pros: idk

    Cons: idk

    Chevy S-10 — Performance- I have the 2.4 litter engine and it's alot of engine for that little truck. Build Quality- Its a pretty sturdy truck and has seen a little abuse and has stood up to it. Cost of ownership- Is okay on gas about 20 miles per gallon, and its at 160,000 so parts are starting to fail but nothing major. Fun Factor- This car is fun to drive get good burnouts and is just really fun to drive, off the line really fast but govenor kicks in at 95 =/

    Pros: Tough truck with good gas milage, and alot of engine.

    Cons: Service engine light tends to missfires and the hazard lights sometimes dont work but then again never need to use them

    Chevy S10 Ss — It's actually a SS model. Excellent handling. Good to run around town or take on curvy roads. Doesn't have many options available...no tilt, power doors or windows, etc. Fun truck to drive.

    Pros: great handling, fun to drive

    Cons: few options
