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

Good Little Hauler. — I purcheased this little truck a little over a year ago, and I haven't had any major problems with it. I drove it from Grand Rapids, MI to Sevierville, TN and back, i averaged 30 MPG, and had a great ride. It can do a fair amount of hauling, even when overloaded. Acceleration is lacking due to its small 2.2 4 cylinder engine. It doesn't handel very well either, but it's a truck, so, that's ok.

Pros: Light, great gas mileage, fun to drive.

Cons: Slow, can't haul very much.

Great Little Truck — Miss this truck. It was a sad day when the motor blew out on it then an even sadder day when the 2nd motor gave out. Pros- Small great for Trail Riding. Good cargo room Cons- MPG, back seat leg room.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great small truck for the price.

Cons: THE MPGS

It Runs Great — its red has a 4.3 vortec v6 posi-trac rear end, 4 speed automatic runs and drives tops out at 97 i installed an aftermarket sound system with 3 12's 2 6x9's and 2 61/2's. Recently installed smoked euro style taillights. I get between 15 and 19 mpg. only had it stuck 3 times in 3 years. not bad for northeast missouri weather conditions

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: posi trac rear end

Great All Around Truck. — After 160,000 miles, it still runs like new. The 4.3 liter V6 has good acceleration, no leaks, no weird noises, transmission doesn't slip. The body is in great shape. Very little rust, minor dents. I've had it since 2005 and the only major repair was a new fuel pump and gas tank. I've added fog lights, a cd player, window vents and LED tail lights. I wish it had four wheel drive for the winter and a/c for the summer but other than that its a great little truck.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: When you don't need a full size truck to haul stuff.

Cons: Poor gas mileage even for a V6.
