Lazy transmission

Mine is a 2014, 4 cylinder, WT. The transmission is lazy and won't always shift to the next gear, especially while mountain driving in the Smoky Mountains. It works a little better when I don't use cruise control. City driving gets about 18 mpg, highway driving got up to 28 mpg, even in the mountains. Something went wrong with my lights, which required a Body Control Module replacement which only worked a few days. The second replacement worked 1100 miles then started acting up again. Suddenly, everything started working again at 1600 miles, and still going strong. I don't like the very tiny infotainment screen, but Chevy advised against replacing it with an upgraded version.


Happy with my Colorado!

I bought my Colorado new & have kept up all my service on it. Runs great, good gas mileage, for a truck. I don’t like the design of the door panels, nothing fits in them, useless! My foot slips off the brake pedal no matter what shoes I wear! Don’t know if anyone else has this problem. Jim


6”5 and I get in and out

Bought my Colorado from a dealer 2 years ago. I do regular maintenance and knock on wood have had no major problems. I average around 21 MPG which I think isn’t too bad. My only complaints are pretty minor. I’m 6”5 so getting in and out is tight, but once I get in I have pretty decent room. My only other complaint was that I took a road trip and my mileage did not increase much. I also wish the cup holders were a little bigger for my over sized cup of coffee in the morning lol. Overall I’ve been very happy with the truck.


Boo Unsafe, unreliable, over priced piece of junk.

I had my truck in the shop 28 days already that's both times in August and September. The stabilitrack light, t/c light and engine light came on. Then as I was driving across the bridge it went into limp mode reducing my speed to 45 as traffic was flying past me. I couldn't pull over anywhere. Sent the truck into be fixed it came out sounding and acting worse than before it went in. Sent it straight back and the 2nd time I at least got a rental car but my truck sounded worse when they started it and squealed. Windshield cracked hood scraped, money missing out of glove box and grease all over door. No oil in the truck. The truck is not any better and sent to a new auto shop but now the parts on national back order and with my extended warranty that was completely misinformed of the coverage and second warranty that was charged. They have no idea when the rear Knox 2 sensor will be even made. Not one in the USA is what I am being told. So I am very disappointed also besides I'm disabled and can't get anywhere but I think that the tow package is a joke. I can't haul my camper the dealership promised and sure couldn't get out of a wet paper sack if my life depended on this truck for anything.



My Chevy Colorado was great for the first 33 days. I have on five different trucks I’ve never owned a Ford truck. But now that I seen the indifference that the manufacture puts out to a customer is beyond belief. My windows doesn’t go up/down properly. My dashboard lights will intermittently go off & will stay off for days. My Chevy link sometimes works properly. Please stay away from this Cheney model


My new ride!!

So far, REALLY enjoying all the fun gadgets this truck has. Pretty attached to the Ford Sport trac , but this might be my new baby!


Very reliable

very pleased! It handles very nice, and it's really comfortable! We haven't had a chance to take it long distance yet to see how good the gas mileage yet, but plan to do that next weekend!


Love my used new truck

Comfortable front seat. Handles well. Great option package. Good gas mileage. The ride is as expected for a small truck. Good power under the hood.


Not very reliable

I have only owned trucks my whole life and this one has cost me more in maintenance $ than any other I have had. Fixing issues that I have never had to deal with in my past and would only expect to if I was buying a beater for my kids. I bought this brand new and have had many problems with it. I love the looks, drives great, feels great but I have had to go to mechanics more than ever. I do not believe I will be buying Chevy again after this experience.


Not a new vehicle, but good enough for my budget

I've been looking for a small truck, I live out in the country, needed something rugged but a nice looking truck. Nice color, roomy and clean
