"I bought my 2001 S10 used in 2002, with about 11,000 miles on it. I've driven it ever since, with little major maintenance, and not a single breakdown. I love the fact that it will run on E85, especially when gas prices were so high. And that fuel really does give the engine a good kick of power, especially when going uphill, which I do quite often. After 13 years I still enjoy driving this little truck, and it sure is handy to have something bigger than a car trunk when it's time to move something bigger. Everything is in great working order, and it's still as peppy as one can expect a 4 cylinder engine to be. I'll be keeping this one until it gives up the ghost, which will probably be about the same time I do. It just keeps going."
"Truck held up very well in light construction usage, over the road appointments and maintenance.
4.3L V6 is powerful enough to do any task I needed to do.
20-22 mpg on road, 15-16 mpg around town.
Overall maintenance was very reasonable."
Cons: "Fuel mileage is the same as a half ton with a V8"

"The S10 is a great little pickup. Very convenient for the size. Good power, great torque, 4wd works wonders with the places these little trucks go. They just don't get the fuel mileage you would think. I've owned my truck since it had 69,000 miles and currently has 94,000. Wouldn't own another small brand truck if someone paid me!"
