Asked by Mar 01, 2016 at 03:56 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS Standard Cab LB

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

How reliable are these vehicles? What all do I have to look for when buying
one? Are they easy to fix? I have little experience on cars and I wanted a
Muscle car. I read somewhere that a S10 can get fixed up (If I can find a
site) to be pretty quick and that they will be lower on insurance. Which year  
and model should I look for? I know it's a lot of questions, but I'm curious
since I THINK they are pretty cheap also

A 2000 Chevy S10 are selling pretty low right now. The biggest problem area on these vehicles are the front ends. The front end geometry is not very good and the front end parts wear out quickly. If you're in the market for one, look for worn out ball joints (biggest problem) also the front bearings wear out quickly forcing you to change the hub assembly. You'll hear the ball joints knocking around, clunking, and poping, if you back up with it. Make sure the 4WD engages, and listen for front axle pops. If you're able to test drive it, which I recommend, look and listen for these things. The rest of the truck is pretty solid. Drive train is dependable as well as the 4.3L Vortec V-6 engines.
