    I am contemplating getting an S-10 or S-15 as a second/back-up vehicle and light hauling. Nothing fancy. Hoping for a 4cyl, 5spd, long box. Any good years? Any bad years? Looking for fuel economy and reliability. Thanks,Scott

    My uncle had an 89' S-10 and he loved it, it ran forever I think it had a V-6 if I remember. I have a 2001 S-10 with the 4.3 V-6 which is GM's smallest gas hog, I would be amazed if I got 16mpg in my truck. When I bought mine I test drove a 2.2 and it had no power what so ever, which is why I decided on the 6 cylinder. I have had a couple expensive freak things happen to my truck, but that could happen on any vehicle. Most of the S-10's I see have a ton of miles, so good luck in finding one that's still in good shape.

    I've had an '88 w/2.8L V6 & '93 w/4.3L V6. Both were very good trucks, both had automatics. I'm sure there are a lot of newer ones out there worth buying. Good luck!
