1995 Chevrolet S-10 LS 2.2 4 cylinder from North America
Extremely good truck
The heater core developed a small leak when I first got it. Dealer fixed it for free. Other than that, nothing went wrong.
I bought new, and have never had to fix anything on it. The original tires lasted 90,000 miles! All equipment (clutch, brakes, etc) is original and works well.
Driving it is like driving a Buick - very quiet and cushy. Not like my 1970 Dodge truck, which was like driving an old schoolbus with a bad muffler. (Note: the 1970 Dodge has the power steering valve mounted on the outside of the frame by the left wheel - factory installed that way!!! So every time you make a sharp left turn, the tire shreds into the valve. I went to a junkyard and got a manual streering arm and removed the power setup. Took lots of muscle to drive that pig).
The driver's seat foam wore out too quickly and cost too much to replace. That is my only complaint.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My 95 S-10 is very similar...
Heater coil had small leak at 106K miles.
Replaced wiper motor at around 65K.
That's it!! No other problems.
Motor is low on power but also very light on gas.
Rear tires had 106K miles and still have HALF of the tread left!! (blows my mind)
Damn good little truck. This little guy really was "Like a Rock"!!

I have a 95' Chev S-10. I had the same heater core go out at 125k. But I do have another bigger problem...electrical. Once in a while, while driving, the engine will shut down, the gages will go awry, and it will only last for about 5 seconds then poof, back to normal. It has never let me down, but it makes me nervous. I had it to the dealer, but of course, they couldn't find any trouble codes or other problems. Any comments?

I had the same electrical problem with my 98... turned out to be the battery cables. I replaced the entire ground and positive, and fixed the problem...
