1999 Chevrolet S-10 LS 2.2L from North America
This vehicle shows poor workmanship
The seat adjustment handles have broken 4 times.
All the rubber has come loose.
The rear-end burned out at 26,000 miles.
The windshield wiper motor went out.
The washer motor went out.
The fuel injection doesn't work right.
The third door latch has been replaced twice.
The console busted.
The tires have to go every 8,000 miles because you can't seem to keep the front-end aligned.
Altogether the truck cost $26,000 and isn't worth 2 cents.
I feel it was cheaply and quickly made.
I will never purchase another S10.
With no warranty left repair bills are sky-rocketing, I'm really disappointed in this vehicle, I've been driving for 25 years and have owned G.M. or Chevrolet 20 years, but this one has changing my mind about the products.
The vehicle is poor quality.
The seats are uncomfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

All that you have mentioned are common things that have gone bad. How would I know? I work in the service department at Chevy.
The seat recliner had to be replaced four times probably because you had not leaned forward before pulling the handle. Seat recliner broken at the handle.
All the rubber has come loose. Tires or weather-strips?
The rear probably had no gear lubrication to keep the gears cool.
I've seen the wiper module fail but not the motor. There was a recall that involved the replacement of the wiper module. The module's internal soldiering was not good and failed.
The PCM was probably the case for the fuel injection to not work right. Maybe there was a hole in the intake manifold, or a plug wire was defective from the factory.
I don't understand why the third door handle always breaks. This is common to it's weak design.
The seat console on 60/40 split bench seats will only break if you lean on it hard enough.
Suspension is not my area of work, but hard turns and going fast over speed bumps will throw the alignment out. The Truck was made to run the way it was made for, just like all the other S-10's that rolled of the same assembly line. But no two car or trucks will be the same. I have an S-10 of my own and I have taken very good care of it.
