I bought my '03 S10 in 2006, since then I havent had any issues with it!!! Although my truck is only the base model(regular cab, 2 wheel drive) I still enjoy it! I am looking for a ZR2 model now because not having 4X4 is keeping me from going out and doing the activities I love to do! Definitely an outstanding truck and would recommend it to anyone!!!

I purchased a 2003 Chevrolet S10 a few weeks ago and I love it. It serves it purpose well and get really good fuel mileage, one tank can last me up to three weeks. I had two other Chevrolet pick-ups that I owned were very fuel hungry, but made lots of power. ( $30.00 a week in fuel costs alone) The one I purchased replaced both of them and it has 174,XXX miles. ( all highway miles though) It has the 2.2 in-line four cylinder, the 5 speed manual transmission, and is 2wd. Yes I will admit it is short in the power department, but it is primarily used to go back and forth to work, get groceries, and haul the occasional load of wood. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a second commuter vehicle. Simple reminder to thoroughly inspect before purchasing,...I lucked out and got a good one, many more out there that have more wear and tear.

Makes my old Ranger look like a toy. I love how well the 4x4 works when towing my boat out of the ramp. the torque is incredible when towing a heavy load. great power and decent fuel mileage with the 4.3. real roomy inside, feels very similar to a silverado.

i really enjoyed my S10 when i first purchased it but had to replace the transmission and purchased a faulty aftermarket warranty that didn't pay a dime. It nickeled and dimed me here and there but always made it to the garage and never left me stranded. I felt the 4.3 vortec felt a little doggish at times. I'm forced to sell my chevy for a toyota. I think if the previous owner took better care of it I wouldn't of had a problem with it.

good litttle pick up

by from ct on January 10, 2010

For the light construction work I do the truck is good. It isn't much in the snow nor does it do well in mud. With the cap we can use to camp.

This is the perfect little truck for what I need. It has great power and a lot of torque for a truck of its size. It gets decent gas mileage and I really like the look of the truck, inside and out. If you need a light duty truck, this is the best. A ton better than the Ranger I used to have, hands down.

This is a fantastic 4x4. It has the ground clearance and design that makes it nearly impossible to stop. During a blizzard, this truck was not stopped, although my friend's Jeep was stuck for days. The rear locking differental makes the difference. All I can say is that I love this truck.
