My 2004 Colorado has almost 111,000 miles on it and with normal maintenance it has been a great truck. I get between 22 and 26 mppg. Engine is strong and never has used any oil. I am a tall guy and it has plenty of room.

I love the Colarado. After shopping around quite a bit I decided on it because it was the perfect size for me. It is very reliable and fun to drive. I have only had one minor problem and that was with my stop light switch wearing out. That is probably from all the driving I do!!! I live in the country so I put a lot of miles on my truck and it still drives just like it did when I first got it. I think that the biggest thing that I do not like about it is the interior. I think that Chevrolet could have done a little bit better with that!!! Overall, it is a great truck and I will definitely buy another one when the time comes!!

I have put about 10000 on this truck already and and have had only one major issue. The inner treads on my front tires are wearing very fast. I brought it back to the dealership who agreed that the truck was out of alignment and proceeded to align the truck. The problem did not stop.My tires are continuing to wear ABNORMALLY fast on the inner treads in the front of the vehicle.The dealer stated that because the truck was within "factory specs" for alignment that my problem was "normal wear and tear". Ive had a second and third opinion on this issue and have concluded that the local Chevy dealer is wrong. So I am now in the process of dealing with Chevy corporate about the problem.

A fun small truck, with plenty of get
up and go with the 5 cyl engine. Tows
a 2000 lb boat with ease! The drivers
seat feels a little off center,
especially with a little back support
cranked in. Everything easily within
drivers reach. A real nice thing to
have would be radio controls on the
steering wheel! Pushing 20 MPG on the
highway at 60MPH, dropping steadily as
speed increases. The dash panel cover
just looks cheap.

This Truck has been in the Shop 3 time
is the past 2 months to have the
transmission worked on, still not
fixed. Forget about getting help from
GM reps to talk with about safety
issue. They will just tell you that
your safety is not their concern, but
to try and fix the vehicle. I would
be very careful if I were thing about
buying this vehicle. For the price
and better quality I would look at a
