1994 Chevrolet S-10 LS 4.6 Vortec from North America
Great Truck - Buy on for yourself
Windshield wipers seem to only work when it is not raining.
Heater Core went out at 82,889 Miles.
Replaced Radiator at 137,000 Mi, there seems to be rust in the engine causing the fluid to turn brown no matter how many flushes I do.
Brakes seem to need pad replacing often (but then again it could be the driver). They are easy to replace, but you need to buy a special hex to remove the caliper.
Chassis needs lubricating fittings after each oil change or it will squeak. I have found you have to make sure you ask them to do this or it doesn't get done.
Distributer Cap and Rotor went out at 82,889 miles.
Fuel Pump went out at 144,159 miles - this on was expensive to replace $400!
Smog check has always past - pretty good for California.
Starter needed replacing at 129K miles.
Water Pump needed replacement at 135K Miles.
Although I have had to replace many items, the duration between each repair seems well worth it.
The problem with the wiper not working in the rain is irritating, but because it rarely rains in CA I forget about the problem most of the time.
The interior looks brand new, only had to replace the window cranks.
Overall, a great long lasting car for the money. I feel it was worth the money in fixing items on a truck that could last 15-20 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
