Man that sucks. I have had a 94 s10 SS since it was new and never had a single problem with it. It has almost 200,000 miles and haven't even had to replace an alt. Just basic wear items like brakes, tires, wiper blades, etc. It's been the best truck I have ever owned. And it's still going strong.

I'm sorry you purchased a lemon, however you could've avoided this problem. I've ran the royal hell out of my 93 S10 Blazer and I haven't even replaced that much. I've had my Blazer airborne over railroad tracks and it hasn't crapped out on me yet. BTW, 140k and still running strong!

My 97 S10 SS has 210000 miles on it, and no problems. Great truck, ran the hell out of it across country 3 times. Can't ask for a better truck.

His is the next generation -- they stopped making your generation in '93. My understanding is that the quality really went down beginning with this generation.

Aww dude, I'll tell you right now that any Chevy I've ever encountered has performed above and beyond the call of duty, with ridiculous miles on them to boot. Because of this, I've only gained a lot of respect for them. Not gonna lie, I don't hear problems like the guy above very often; actually it's the first time.

I love my 97 S10 SS. It keeps up with my buddy's IROC Z Camaro until I hit the governor, but at 23-28 MPG highway.

Have a 2003 Silverado 3/4 ton 2WD. Over 200k and just tires, brakes, battery, and master cylinder. Great Chevrolet.

Mine has just over 464,000 miles on it, I have had to replace components (alternator, water pump etc...), but all in all it has been the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. People need to remember components wear out. If you are having a lot of trouble with any vehicle, 9 times out of 10 it is because of lack of maintenance. If you go by what your maintenance schedule says and read the owners manuals, the vehicle will last. Not to say that there aren't lemons out there, but for the most part, as long as they have been taken care of, they will last.
