I have a 1988 s10 2wd i bought when i was 16, i am now 28 and i still have the truck and drive it weekly. it has jus shy of 600,000 miles on it and still has same motor, has never been rebuilt. the trans has been replaced but i have really beat on the truck and hauled stuff that most people would use a 3/4 ton for. i will recommend anyone to buy a s10. they are very much worth the money.

Awesome Truck

by from Arkansas on June 14, 2009

I have the 2.2 4 cyl. step side, and it is one of the most reliable vehcles I have ever owned. It has 150,500 miles on it and at least the much more to go.

I have the 4.3 liter, 4x4, X-cab. Bought used 7 years ago with 22K miles; now have 95K. Really like the truck, but it's had it's share of problems... Replaced catalytic converter, ball joints, idler arm, water pump, oil cooler lines, left wheel bearing, and the brakes. The float on the fuel gauge is bad but haven't replaced it yet. Oh yeah, the seat adjuster handles for both seats have broken and I'm looking for replacement handles. May sound like a lot of problems, but considering that it's a work truck and I don't baby it, it's not so bad. Runs and drives great, doesn't use oil, and gets good gas mileage (18 city, 22 highway.)

Great first car

by from on February 28, 2009

These cars last forever. I've had one for 4 years and never had trouble. They also look great! Great for new drivers.

I own a 1999 s10 and it was an okay truck up until about 156,000 miles. By then I had to have a new fan clutch, it was fine for another 4k miles, then had to have a water pump. Drove for another 10k miles then I had to replace my blower motor, my heater coil, AC Relay, and 2 of the 3 switches on the inside of the vehicle, dash is falling apart, drove it another 300 miles and it needs a new fuel pump, drove it for another 3k miles, had to replace my clutch and slave cylinder, drove it another 500 miles and it spun a rod bearing and is going to need a rebuild or new engine. If you need a dependable vehicle with minimal mechanical issues a S-10 is not for you.

The 4.3 Vortec is very reliable, surprisingly powerful, and smooth, My truck was purchased new in 1997 and now has 200K on the odometer with under $2000 in repairs. No problems for the first 140,000 then it needed some repairs, being I like the car to run well and it has been such a great car, I went all the way and replaced the front end suspension (very affordable), fuel pump, water pump, radiator, a couple of sensors, a couple of gaskets and the a/c compressor. The paint is in great condition and no problems with the interior (except for the seat handles and 3rd door handle which was under $20 to repair. I I think I will keep it for another 200,000 miles..

I recently test drove this chevy s-10 and it was a piece of S#$%. It rattled, tires were worn out and the engine vibrated when you let off the gas. Driving it on the interstate was a bad idea, it would not accelerate like it should, I would not buy this pickup.
