Great Value, small headaches!

by 2nd Owner from Des Moines, IA | June 23, 2012

I am the second owner of my 2000 S10 LS and it has just over 100,000 miles.Runs great, easy to work on and maintain. It's the cheap interior items that cause the headaches. The seat recline levers are made of cheap material and are prone to breaking. The 3rd door latch is plastic, as is the assembly inside, which is prone to breaking. Chevrolet really didn't have to skimp THAT much. Outside of these things, its a sound truck.

Best vehicles I've owned

by S-10 #1 from Cloquet, MN | February 22, 2010

I've had two S-10 pickups in recent years (1991 & 1996) Got the 91 with 39K on it and sold it with 177K and regretted it within a week. Got the 96, can't remember the mileage, about 5 years ago and am now at 197K+. Oyer than the normal upkeep it has been a reliable vehicle until this week. It is the process of getting a 5-speed tranny in it. my first big expense in over 150K miles. I will drive thi thing until it is nothing but the perverbial pile of rusted junk. My 91 costs were a wheel bearing, water pump, taken out by a busted fan, and a new throwout bearing.All in all both of these trucks have only set me back about $8-9 hundred bucks. I don't feel that's too much for about 287K of driving. The absolutely worst thing about the S-10 pickup is that Chevrolet QUIT MAKING IT!! BTW both of mine were/are the 4 banger and 22-28 MPG. They always got me home. Love them. Looking for another one now to sock away util the current one dies. I would recommend them to anyone.

Hate to get rid of her

by Me from Auburn, NY | March 4, 2008

2wd, v6, extened cab. I was rushed into buying my s-10 but I'm glad I did. For a small truck it has plenty of room, I couldn't imagine having a truck without an extended cab. The engine gave me plenty of power and even being 2wd I have never been stuck regardless of the Central NY snow. Decent on gas: best ever 29mpg, average summer 21mpg, average winter 16mpg There are some predictable problems: rust will form on the wheel wells and under the doors (assuming you live in snowy areas), the tailgait cables will snap, coolant seals will eventually leak and there will be abs computer problems.

Great truck

by Jonny from Hampshire, Illinois | November 8, 2007

Had a 1996 S-10 short bed/cab 2wd. Truck was lowered and sway bars added made this little pickem up into a great runner. I eclpised 250,000 miles when I sold this truck in summer 2007. 4.3L V6 was absolutley amazing-ran very strong, did not burn oil, and no problems. Only thing I had to do to the truck was change fluids and put a fuel pump in at 200,000 miles, replacing the factory one.
