This 91 4X4 has 190K and nary a bit of trani problem..BUT did replace
the engine due to oil getting past the valve guides and some piston
slapin racket at around 160K
PS Of course you do realize that 99.8% of all males kids wreck at
least their first, (if not second and third) cars
I had two 4 cyl S-10 trucks, same as an Isuzu. I had a '95 for many
miles. It had a lot of clutch chatter and bounce until I took the
oversize tires off and put on the smaller, recommended tires, I sold it
with over 100k and running good. I had a '93 stick shift that I had no
clutch or transmission troubles with, and sold it with well over 100k
miles, running like a new truck. I think that some of the trouble is
that lots of S-10s were used by delivery people and really abused before
being bought by second and third owners. They were never meant to have
heavy bed caps, and definitely not slide ins, but people still try it.
If I were buying a small vehicle for a teenager, I would go with a used
Toyota. They run and run and run. Used engines are all over the place.
