1994 Chevrolet S-10 LS 4.3 Vortec from North America
Like the energizer bunny
Well, having put 175,000 miles on the truck most minor things have been replaced. The only "surprises?" were the transmission needed replaced at about 60,000 miles, no problems since.
One gripe is that the drivers seat has worn down past the foam, this appears to be a problem with most s-10 trucks. I even went to junk yards to buy a new drivers seat and all the s-10's there had the same problems.
I have replaced.
Water pump, head gasket set (very recently), fuel pump (it's in the gas tank ugh.), and expected wear parts.
This truck has been awesome. I have always changed my oil every 3000 miles and with a recent head gasket set replacement (minor anti-freeze leak)it showed (engine was super clean). The truck has been easy to work on when I needed to. I have put 175,000 miles on this truck and it still keeps going, I would trust it to go almost anywhere.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
