"i bought my 1985 2.5 liter 5 speed at 68,000 miles... i've owned it for just under one year and racked up the miles to 86,000... very dependable very few problems all of wich were minor...i gave it only 3 stars for preformance because i'm 19 and the 100 hp 4 cylinder 2wd really makes me feel like i'm being held back.. but it will do a decent burn out.."
"I have a '91 with 285,000 miles on it and she still purrs like a kitten! Rust is a problem and the bed was replaced, but with regular maintenece this truck will last. I 'm pushing for 400,000 miles! At least!"
"I've owned probably 8 of these, and i have LOVED every single one of them! They all have their little quirks kind of like an old house. Gotta shut the door a certain way, wiggle the door handle a little to open it, stupid stuff like that. I've NEVER had one of these let me down! from the $200 beaters to the $2,000 ones, all very good. Not to mention fixing them is CHEAP! All this coming from a mechanic If you need a good reliable beater these are the way to go!"
"These S10's are bullet proof...dependable and easy to get parts etc.Have had this one for 15 years and have put very little repair money into it. It has the 4.3 lite engine and auto trans,,tahoe package...great little truck!"
"I got my truck with 190000 miles on it and nothing wrong. Drove it for awhile and never had to do anything to it but change the original fuel pump and 240000 miles but other than that it is great for the money and a 5spd makes it better!"
