best truck I've ever owned

Bought it as a low mileage used vehicle and found out quickly it is a great vehicle. Crew cab is very spacious and comfortable and while bed is shorter it still is large enough to haul what I need to haul. I would definitely buy another Colorado.


What a Horrible truck

I bought a used 04 Z71 used with 40k miles on it before I even drove it off the lot it stalled out. didnt have problems again until about 50k abs light comes on and off..now Im getting the infamous spit and sputter and wanting to stall changed fuel filter and pump been to dealer and many shops no one knows what is wrong with it. It is weak, no power. it rattles to the point of me wanting to rip my ears off or shove ear plugs in them. Half the truck is made out of plastic. I wouldnt recommend this new or used to anyone.


great picup

i got my chevy colorado as a certified used 18,900 miles have 40,100 miles on it now and the only problem i have had is i had to have the fan switch fixed it wouldnt work on third speed


Chevrolet Work Trucks

Big truck feel. Crew Cab bunch of room. Good power. Averaging 23 mpg straight 5 cyl. Wish GM would have put a nicer looking wheels on the Z71 two wheel drive. Do not like GM cloth interiors get dirty and stain quickly, would like to have the leather. GM needs to offer nice vinly interior seats like they use to years ago; use to be cloth or vinyl.


Impulse buy

Ok so I needed a new vehicle and i wasn't sure what I wanted. While driving threw newport news i spotted my truck. I didn't even test drive it, I got the ZQ8 edition. And for being a complete impulse (the sale took less then 3 hours) I love my truck. I will never own another truck, at the same time I will never for as long as I can let go of my truck either. Come to think of it since they got rid of pontiac i wont be buying another chevy either. But I digress, Bottom line if you can get your hands on one of these trucks buy it. These trucks have the pick up and go and they are just grrrrreat!


Has been a great truck!

I bought this truck new.It now has 150,000 miles on it ! very few problems all were covered by the factorys warrnty. Good gas milliage for a 4 wheel drive 22 mpg!


great truck

this is a great truck for onroad of offroad i raced at the drag strip in north carolina and it ran 11.83 seconds on 1/4 mile at 106mph it is the v8 extrem edition i have the engine completely stock but it has a lift kit and 23's best truck ever


Best Mid-Size Truck There Is

The four wheel drive is awesome. As well as the I5 engine in it. Great exterior styling with a comfortable interior. Love this truck and will probably get another colorado with my next car search.


Not happy for the $$$ i payed for it

I bought my 2004 colorado new I wanted it to be fully loaded so i had then ship one and it was not what i had asked for first of all, It looked cheep inside since then i have had many problums with the tail lights going out all the time, the stearing had a loud clunck in it when you made right turns although they did fix it "after three trip to the dealer" also the break handle broke with in a few mounth as well as the seat leavers. I have also had it in the shop many many times for the ac/heat, breakes, eng making lots of strang sounds, power windows going out four times and much more all in the first year of owning it. For pay 30,000 for a truck i was veary disaponted Should of bought the toyota are other toyota has 250,000 and run better now then the colorado has since day one.



Sure it is not a full size truck... but with gas prices on the rise it is a great value. With great gas mileage for a mid-size truck and the awesome power it is well work the investment. The engine was also used in the H3 when it was introduced. I would recomend the 4WD and Crew Cab as the room and security of knowing you will not get stuck as easily is imperitive.
