"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 have had my 1992 Chevy S-10 pickup truck with the 4.3L V6, 4x4, 5-speed, extended cab, short bed. I bought the truck with 76K on the odometer and have pushed it up to 127K at this current moment in time. Within those miles I have never had any MAJOR problems with the engine, or the running gear. I have replaced the alternator once, the battery once, and a radiator hose once. I am convinced that if you take care of these S-10's in a consistant manner, especially the 4.3L V6, they are some of the most durable and dependable trucks on the road."
"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!"
"This was the first vehicle i bought from a dealer. It had 44,000 miles on it when i bought it and it now has 170,000 some 5-1/2 years later. I've had very few problems considering the age and milage. Fuel pump, and UV joints were the only major expenses. Other than regular maintenance. I changed the oil on time all the time and tried not to beat it up too bad. I love Chevy now and I'll never buy anything other than a chevy. It was roomy as long as you sat in the front seats. The back fold down seats not so much but, all in all i love my truck."
"i bought my lil 93 s10 4.3 v6 about 8 years ago out of junkyard with 120,000 miles on it. at the same time a dragstrip was built in our town. i fixed it and took it to the strip and ran 10.80,s in a 1/8 then put a set of headers (capped) under drive pulleys and stage 2 chip, tourqe plate under tbi. and knocked off a second in a 1/8 with slicks of course. so i,ve torchered the lil truck for 6 yrs. at the local track on sat. and sun. at beechbend raceway park in bowlinggreen, ky.and by the way i went from 20 mpg to 27 mpg with the mods. i did to it. then for the past 2 yrs. i have been buying wrecks off the web and have been useing a toll dolley to get them home from all over the usa and the lil truck has over 260,000 on it with same motor never had a valve cover off no leaks, same tranny no leaks, same ujoints , the only thing i had go wrong was the eletric fuel pump went bad at 234,000. my son has it now and glad to have it. i found 1 with 92,000 and put everything on it except the headers and that cost me .10 tenth of a second at the strip and about 2 mpg,s but how could i complain with that kind of performance, durabilty and mpg's"
