Bought this Colorado used with just over 9,000 miles on it. The colorado i have is an LS extended cab model 4 cylinder. I now have just over 26,000 miles on her now. Here is what i like 1. great smooth ride 2. Good on gas for a truck 3. easy to work on engine for the do it yourself person 4. plenty of interior room. 5. plenty of power from 4 cylinders! Things i don't like 1. origional tires didnt last 30,000 miles 2. fit and finish could be better like their competitors. 3. turning radius is aweful. In the end it is what you pay for and really a lot more. I thought of foreign car makers as better but with all the recalls like on my moms camery i dont feel that any car company is perfect. Just you get what you pay for and looking back on what i have paid for this truck and how it has acted i think i got a deal. overall i am very happy. I just hope i get 200,00 miles out of it like my boss's dad got out of his chevy colorado and it is still going strong. take care!

I purchased the 2007 colorado used for a commuting to work (130miles RD trip) 5 days a week and for my part time business. I was getting around 22.1 MPG so I made a few changes to improve the MPG. First I slowed down and do not go over 70 mph and keep the tach around 2000rpm, changed to a K&N air filter, nigtrogen in the tires, front end alignment and last a tonn. cover for the bed. Now I get 26.7 average to and from work and tops at 28.2 freeway mpg. The truck runs great and very comffy. Great buy for the money.

4 cyl manual trans 4x4 gets 24 mpg on trips! Accelleration is good although best at high rpms. Ride and handling are excellent but all terrain tires would be a definite improvement over the stock all season tires. Interior has a lot hard plastic. Softer arm rests are needed. Overall a terrific value. I highly recommend this truck.

Could be better

I bought this used with 37000 miles on it. 2000 miles later I have had the check engine light come on twice (different causes each time) and the ABS Fault light comes on all the time. Total repair bill would be over $1000.00 and I have only made one payment. After digging deeper I have found that this is common on these vehicles. The steering is a little loose but the truck rides good for a truck and does everything I need but between dash lighting up and the poor gas milage (only 15 mpg out of a 5 cyclinder) I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone.

I have owned both Pathfinders, Explorers and Jeeps, and the Colorado's 4WD is by far the best in the snow and mud. On the road this truck drives like a car and getting 20MPG around town. I tow a 5000 lbs. boat about 40 miles oneway and its no problem . For the money there is nothing better. Also I have 18k on it and I have had nothing wrong.

I purchase a 2007 colorado and its a great ride with smooth auto transmission shift. with an I-4 engine I thought twice. however, I was very satisfied but not sure how it would do under a load. stylish exterior with aggressive front grille. alot of interior features even with the basic model. however, the drivers seat is uncomfortable and does not tilt back enough. that would probably be the only thing I would change if it were up to me. I'm overall very satisfied regardless of the uncomfortable seat.

I sold a 99 Silverado to buy this truck Pros: Better gas mileage, about 20% improvement Fits in the garage a lot better Nicer ride Cons: Lower towing/payload Much smaller back seat in extended cab Since I am usually driving solo the interior size is OK and rarely pull a big trailer the capacity is fine. I thought I would miss the V8 power but the 5 cyl. is more than adequate. Can't wait to get it off road or in the snow and see how it does!
