"I bought this vehicle at 109k and in the four thousand miles I put on it, I had nothing but problems. It seemed once I fixed one problem, another would appear. First the gas gauge, then the starter, then the timing belt, and so on and so forth. Other than the reliability of it, the truck itself was ok. Sufficient power and hauling capability, though the bed is very short. The interior looked close to new when I got it. It handled nicely in the snow, even with tires that wouldn't have passed another year's inspection. Four wheel drive helped with that some too when it got bad out."

"I bought this truck 2.5 years ago with 145000 miles and it now has 165000 miles and those 20000 miles have been the most reliable miles I have driven. Granted I do keep great care of my truck and I suspect the previous owner did as well. Great power to MPG ratio. I have a 1999 with the ZR2 package. Driving all highway miles on a tank of gas I get 22 MPG (70 MPH). Driving all in town miles on a tank of gas I get 14 MPG. The S-10 with the ZR2 package has GREAT off road capabilities!!! Trust me I have tested it. It's no full size diesel but I have pulled a 4000 pound trailer down the highway and up some pretty steep inclines and this truck didn't even blink. Only complaint is the interior is a little small and some interior compents are cheaply made (center consule door and seat handles) have had to replace the seat adjusters, cost me maybe $40 in parts and took only 5 min to swap out."

"Bought a '96 with 115000 miles on it. Within 10000 miles the clutch and transmission went out for a thousand bucks. That was using a used junk yard transmission. Then the A/C compressor went out and cost me seven hundred. After new front brakes, rotors, and bearings, another seven hundred the motor started rattling. I was through throwing money into it and sold it for a major loss."

"I bought the truck as a one owner with low miles, 73,000. I figured I was getting a deal. It is automatic with 6 cyl. so it has the power I want, but would gladly trade for a 4 cyl. to get better gas mileage. I get about 15 mpg. non highway driving. I will sell this one, hopefully, and am looking for a 2001 or better year and hope the gas mileage will get better as the model gets younger!"
