Much will depend on how the previous owner cared for it. Quality has
improved on newer vehicles, so chances are, it should have less problems.

The S10 has had a history of poor fit and finish, electrical problems and
other reliability issues according to the consumer products magazines. My
parents had a 91 Jimmy and it had only a couple minor issues up to 160K
miles. By contrast, their 95 Blazer was good until 80K and started needing
major repairs every other month. After getting stranded on the road, they
had enough and sold it. Maybe the older ones were better : )

Re: ranger 2003 xlt

S10's have a profound internal problem with the window wipes. replace
repair and then they fail the first time it rains again. The same prob for
over 20 yrs?
I have given up and switch to ranger now, so far so good, some small probs
with electricals, but nothing major to speak of.
Wish ford had a 4 cyl deisel for the rangers....
