My favorite little truck

by Big Red from Albion, NY on Tue Jun 26 2007

The Chevy S10 is a very practical truck with loads of potential. The base 4x2 std cab 6' fleetside box model is a eager little truck both on the road and off. The dead steering feels pleasent off road and doesnt jar your arms on every bump and the 2.2 L4 engine is eager to go which makes this truck a pleasure to drive on road and off. In stock trim my truck a 1997 S10 w/ a 5-spd manual tranny pumps out a healthy 118hp @ 5600 rpm and 130 torque @ 2800 rpm. This is the most reliable vehical I've ever had. I love this truck and am I'm planning to keep it for the rest of my life. Couldn't be more happy with this truck. I love it.

Certainly the most worry and maintenance free car

by AvsAddict from Denver Colorado on Sun May 18 2008

The Chevy S-10 is a reliable workhorse. It requires very little attention, and very little maintenance to ensure lasting performance for years. Probably the smartest purchase I ever made.

The best truck for the money I've ever owned!

by Travis @ Brandl from St.Cloud MN on Wed Jun 28 2017

I bought this truck used and loved it the entire time I owned it. It is a little small in interior but the 4.3 liter V6 has provided enough power for me every single time! I owned this mini truck for over 7 years and it was the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned! Perfect for short commuting if you have to haul things! Even got over 20 miles to the gallon!

Best Mini truck around!

by S10Queen from Sarasota on Wed Sep 06 2017

This truck was handed down to me from my father with under 60k Miles. The v6 4.3 L engine is very good. Very reliable, has never left me stranded. the interior is a little dated but hey it's a 97'.

First Truck and i love it

by First time buyer from Sharon, MA on Tue Apr 09 2013

Great engine that takes off well for a truck and pretty good mpg at 19 average. Especially for a truck 16 years old, i was enthused to find something actually reliable for my price range.

Our Take on the 1997 Chevrolet S-10

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Tex.-Electric vehicles could work on this tropical tip of Texas. The year-round temperature is right, averaging about 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Commuting is a cinch -- five miles of road from the top to the bottom of the town proper, and the island is 2.5 miles across at its widest point.

Assuming you had business in Port Isabel, which lies two miles west of the Queen Isabella Causeway, you could make the round trip in an electric vehicle with little or no hassle.

Also, the civic attitude in these parts is perfect for battery-car advocates. Seems as if everyone, from shrimpers to the managers of recreational vehicle parks, is into the environment in a big way.

But electric vehicles... Read More
