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!

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.

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.

On July 31, 2004, I bought a brand new 2004 Chevrolet Colorado LS Extended Cab with the 3.5 liter 5-cylinder and 4-speed automatic. This past weekend I passed the 160,000 mile mark and very easily I might add. Over the past 4+ years I have averaged 22.7 mpg, I got 99,838 miles out of my last set of tires (BFGoodrich Long Trail T/A Tour), and the ORIGINAL brakes, front and rear, are still on the truck and doing fine with a lot of life left on them. Like just about any vehicle, take care of it and it will last. I've made a few repairs over the years, but have never been left stranded. The only complaint I had was that the catalytic converter was welded improperly which in turn caused me to get it replaced twice for a total cost of $1,050. Like I said, it's been a great truck and at this pace I should get 250,000 miles out of it without much trouble.

have the truck 32 months no problems. others complain about child seats, cheap vinyl, no room in rear, crew cab loses a ft in bed. well buy a sedan, crew cab or better yet a full size vehicle and pay another 3-4k more. this vehicle has enough torque h/p with the 3.5L. am now selling to buy a 2007 colorado ext cab z71 3.7L harder suspension with Z71 is as expected but sits higher as wanted with orr tires.

I bought it new. it is comfortable, pretty good gas mileage, yet within the first 3 months these problems drive shaft to short , kept getting stuck in third gear, catalytic converter was improperly wield and was coming off. then the exhaust manifold had a crack all the way across. break handles break, brake light switch faulty, heater/ac fan only works on high power 99% of the time. fuel tank does not properly read the amount of fuel in it when it is lower than a 1/4 tank. i do like how it rides.

I bought this truck Chevy Colorado LS 4x4 Crew Cab used and i never really had any problems except with the blower fan which was under warrenty. I agree that chevy should have done better quality inside the vehicle. The dash and door panels are all plastic. Besides all that the ride quality and 4x4 are excellant. I replaced the factory sound system with aftermark products. I put aftermarket speakers and head unit with 2 amps. One amp for all 4 speakers in the doors and another amp for the single 10" stealth box sub in the back seat area in the middle of the floor since no one can really sit in the middle seat back there. Excellant sound quality now.

I've been very please with my 2004 Z71 Colorado with the Vortec i5 motor and 2 wheel drive. Better mileage than the 4 cylinder and better power, similar to other 6 cylinder trucks I've driven. I've put very little money into this truck after 13 years and 130,000 miles. Well worth the value.
