2000 Chevrolet S10 Reviews

Purchased this truck in Dec. 1999. Not long after, when attempting to recline the passenger seat, the handle broke, but not in a normal place, in the MIDDLE of the rod. I was injured, barely able to function & less than 100 lbs so it is not like I "man-handled" it. A couple of years later, the same thing happened to the driver's side. I have replaced the handle on the 3rd door probably 8-10 times. The last time, I purchased an aftermarket handle on ebay. We will see how this one holds up. There have been many small electrical issues that add up. This was my first Chevy & will probably be my last. Chevy dealer in Clermont is not at all helpful. My air bag light has been on for probably 7-10 years. TAKE TO A DEALER IMMEDIATELY says the owner's manual. Had the truck in the service department for a recall. Techs were in & out, driving the vehicle. Can't be too urgent since not a word was said to me about it. I have run service departments & my techs would have at least pointed it out... A/C hasn't worked for probably 10 years...
