Good truck for the price
I bought my Colorado in December 2022. I want planning on a midsized truck but after the test drive I was impressed. The room is enough for 4 adults comfortably. I have 7500 miles on it and have recommended to several family members. My is a 2wheel drive crew about with locking rear differential. The only thatI have problem with is the tires it came with. Goodyear Wranglers, it needs taller tires and wider.
This is without a doubt the worst vehicle I’ve ever owned. Transmission issues that 3 dealerships say is normal. No power. Looses forward momentum between gears. 2 sets of tires and it still has a vibration they say is normal. I only average 340 miles a tank but again they say it’s normal and told me to use the higher octane fuel. I’ve been told to speed in order for the transmission to shift properly. I’ve also been told not to drive the speed limit to avoid the vibration. Body lines are all off especially the bed and rear bumper. 18 issues and all they fixed were 2 interior issues. They kept all mechanical issues internal and off the computer and told me it’s either normal or can’t be duplicated. But after 3 weeks of having my truck it lost forward momentum within 40 feet of pulling out of the parking spot. I’ve been in 3 near accidents and one was a near death experience with my mom. I was told there’s nothing they can do right now and sent me on my way. I’m scared to drive this truck but I have no choice. I’ve started lemon law proceedings but because the dealership kept it internal, GM has no idea I’m going through all this.
Nice Mid-Sized Truck
While it’s early yet as I’ve only owned for a few weeks, overall it has met or exceeded my expectations. I wanted a mid-sized pickup after owning an Avalanche for nearly 10 years. Truck has plenty of room for driver and passenger (am sure rear seat is tight but not a factor for me) and is very comfortable for me and I’m 6’4”. Truck rides nice and did well in moderate/heavy snow covered roads. So far been great! Can’t really comment on Reliability yet as truck is still new.
