Bought an '06 Crew Cab 4x4, Inline 5 cylinder engine, GM program vehicle for my business. What an excellent truck this has been. We've put over 40k miles on it, and the only problem has been a broken cupholder. It gets better gas mileage than I expected (20/26) and the front seats are very comfortable. Still am trying to get used to the sound of the 5 cylinder engine, it's different. Back seat is good for kids, but wouldn't want to spend alot of time back there myself. We use the vehicle at onsite promotions, so the black with some aftermarket chrome makes a great looking truck. This truck is miles ahead of the Chevy S-10 Blazer I previously owned in comfort and reliability.

My colorado is a 2006 4 dr crew cab with 31000 miles and has the 5 cylinder engine. It runs great and gets about 19/23 MPG. I have the Z71 package and leather interior and running boards it looks and drives great. I paid 14,000 for the truck used and its a great little truck. Thanks GM

I enjoy it's drivability, much like a car, handles well in traffic and parking. The month that I've had it, with several trips, about the only thing I dislike was this one has no electric locks, and a key lock only on the drivers side, a bit on the bad side with passengers.

I bought my 2006 Colorado crew cab Z71 4x4 in Dec. of 2011. I'm an installer for DirecTV and use it for work. I also use it for a 2nd vehicle for my family. My kids ( 8 & 14 years old) love it. I replaced the radio with a indash DVD player to entertain the kids and built a custom subwoofer box under the rear sit. I sometime think I should have bought a full size truck until I need to get gas. The only thing I don't like about my Colorado is the ride hite. I will soon be installing a 2.5" lift kit and taller tires.

We bought the truck new in 2006 and have not regretted it one minute. It has been great on gas with my over 50 mile commute each day. 24-26 mpg a little of highway and city driving mixed but great gas mileage. We do the preventive maintenance on it with oil changes every 3,000 miles and tire rotation every 6,000 miles. Very little has had to be replaced but what has he cost has been minimal. The truck has it's original battery and is now needing to be replaced. I am very pleased with the truck and it is to drive and handles well. I have drove full size crew cab trucks but really like the way the Colorado handles and drives with ease! We will be buying a new one for me soon but I am in no hurry as I am very pleased with the Chevy Colorado so will drive this one till he insist on buying another one!

Great little truck

I bought an 06 Colorado 4x4. It's an LT with very few options. Sticker was only 19470 and nothing else in that price range felt as solid as the colorado. 4 cyl, 5 speed, 4x4 and it does 75 mph happily...
I bought an 06 Colorado 4x4. It's an LT with very few options. Sticker was only 19470 and nothing else in that price range felt as solid as the colorado. 4 cyl, 5 speed, 4x4 and it does 75 mph happily. I get good mileage and would definately buy this little weekday commuter/weekend hauler again. I love it.

Good Truck

by from tallahassee,FL on August 7, 2011

Every thing works fine. Air, stero, CD sound is great. It is a nice truck. Crew cab. A little better gas mileage would be nice.

Aggressive Styling for the Xtreme Pkg., Excellent power and handling in comparison with its competitors, Spacious interior, no question about where to put your drink down with it having 6 cup holders, Sun and sound pkg. is a great addition with Six speakers stratigically placed throughout the cab and power sun roof, Lowered Suspension with the Xtreme pkg. including 18x8 inch wheels on on four corners to hold you to the ground. All in all the Colorado Xtreme is among the best. My opinion of course.
