1998 Chevrolet S-10 LS 4x4 ZR2 4.3L from North America
This car has been a nightmare and pity the fool who buys it from me
Replaced the leaf springs.
Constant popping in the rear end.
Water pump exploded at 25K.
Seat adjusters break every month.
Many electrical failures resulting in loss of power.
Brake lights stay on, and dealer has had it 4 times for this.
Fuel pump failure 4 times.
Windshield wiper switch faulty. Blades would stay on and not stop.
Went through a SMALL stream and it nearly died on the road.
Idiot lights on the dash come on and stay on.
Constant creaking and they can't find it.
Muffler was replaced at 45K. Fell apart internally.
This car is a lemon. I had a 96 4x4 S-10 and it too had problems, but not like this one. I am buying a Toyota instead. I can't trust it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have put 90,000 miles. on my 98 ZR2. The truck is great, however, it has it's problems: Cracked leaf springs, front left drive shaft ($500), ball joints, ball joints, ball joints, the transfer case leeks all of the fluid out and the dealership can't seem to fix it (4 trips there for this). The seat adjustment levers are a joke, $175 to fix them with the same cheap components that broke in the first place. Now to give credit where it is due; These trucks are tough, they can go through anything (put BFG M/T'S, 32" fits stock truck). The worst thing about owning one is dealing with the incompetent technicians at the dealership, not to name names, but LAKESIDE CHEVROLET in WARSAW, IN. They changed three of my four ball joints at 70,000 miles. and the truck was on an extended warranty plan sold through GM.
