Mine is 2000 s10. Want s10 year?
Except for rust, going strong at 345,000 miles. Used for hauling firewood and scrap metal and building materials. More miles hauling loads than empty. Owned 13 yrs. Had 191,000 miles when purchased. 2.2 manual trans. Excellent in snow for 2wd
Too early to rate the reliability
The S-10 was a great truck (I once owned an '89). I hope that this one lasts as long as the '89. Once the '89 started suffering from "Body Cancer - RUST" I knew that it would only be a matter of time before I would loose the battle to save the truck. I sold it on craigslist. The fellow hat bought it said, he was going the remove the body and the truck bed, and install another one from an S-10 that had a bad engine.
Perfect homeowner p/u
Used for towing jet ski, trips to home improvement store for supplies, trips to transfer station to dispose of items, junior moving van, and plowing driveway
Im still own this 2002 S10 great power no issues.
buy this 02 S10 new 0 miles and today after 16 years with me is still the powerful engine that was when I had 0 miles, what a pity that they stopped producing it would buy another S10.
A truck truly built to last
After spending bout 2 years looking for the truck i truly wanted and all the used truck ads i found a 2002 chevy zr2 ! Really great shape and low miles ! 4.3 l engine and a 5 speed trans ! Got 27 mpg on a 110 mile trip ! Runs and drives like new ! Everything works -
This truck was solid and low maintenance. It pulled a full utility trailer with no problem. Dependable commuter.
Overall Great truck good on gas reliable and fairly priced. perform well for there size. can Tow with no problems! Chevy made a strong One!
Hardworking Utilitarian Truck
One of the last true "compact" trucks sold in North America, my 2002 2WD Chevrolet S-10 has not failed me once. The venerable 4.3 Vortec V6 is a tried-and-true power plant that although unrefined when compared with modern vehicles, it is extremely reliable when regular maintenance and care are provided. The vehicle interior is spartan, the way a true work truck should be. There are no heated seats or adjustable pedals here; my S-10 is equipped with the "GM Poverty Package" which can be summed up as cloth seats, rubber floors, AM/FM stereo, and ?power nothing?. The interior is comprised of the Fisher Price-Grade plastic that many 1990s through early 2000s GM vehicles were known for but that is not necessarily a bad thing in this application. Interior pieces while rock solid to the touch will stand up to the punishment that most work-focused owners will dish out. There's plenty of cab space for smaller people (I am in relatively good shape and under 6' in height). However, larger drivers may want to opt for a base model Silverado or Sierra solely as to have some room to breathe. The bed is by far my favorite part of the vehicle. As stated earlier, this truck was produced before compact trucks were injected with steroids so the bed is at a convenient, relatively low height. It is convenient and easy working off of a tailgate that is about waist height versus a new truck with a chest high tailgate height. If you can find a nicely maintained used model with the 4.3 Vortec it will take care of you for years to come.
Run Great great truck to haul and do some off roading. 4.3 motor is strong enough to pull a trailer with a small car.
Somewhat easy to work on, all the parts I can still buy brand new for it. Such a bargain for the amount of Truck I got.
