Love this little truck
I bought it used and looked into numbers that this little 03 S10 has a regular LS step side extended body , it caught my eye because it had a SS hood and a Extreme front and back bumpers. After buying it i looked up numbers to find out that it has a SS drive train along with possi, and a Extreme chasse . Love that parts are everywhere.
Love my S10!
I got my 03 S10 in 2018 with only 49k miles on it from the original owner and i absolutely love it! It has 75k miles on it now but still runs the same as the day i bought it. With the leer fiberglass bed cover and dual Flowmaster pipes it definitely stands out from the others even though its the LS model 2wd single cab but with the 4.3 vortec it gets up and goes just fine. I baby her though lol, ive only done regular routine maintenance like oil changes, clean the k&n air filter, fuel filter, transmission and coolant flush. Things you have to do for every car/truck but other than that i haven't done anything and it just runs like a top. Never left me stranded and has always fired right up like it's brand new. I gotta say its not the best road trip truck but no one buys a s10 for long trips lol back and forth to work and errands around town i couldn't be happier! I definitely trust it for long trips but im 6'1 so it gets pretty uncomfortable after 4 or 5 hours of continuous driving so we just use our Toyota camry for trips. Gas mileage is average i suppose, 17-19 mpg so im not complaining. I have nothing but great things to say about this truck! I get compliments almost every time i drive it so thats a plus lol. If you can pick a s10 up im sure you won't regret it!
Workhorse at a value price.
I got a lot of things accomplished with this truck. I found that you really don't need a full size truck to accomplish 99.9% of the work that a regular family requires. I hauled brush moved refrigerators and completed home renovations out of this truck. Very happy with it.
