My wife and I really enjoy our new Colorado as a second vehicle. We selected it because of its very comfortable ride,the ease of entering and exiting the vehicle, and its hauling capacity. It is giving a good 28 MPG on the road and 19 MPG in town. The five cylinder engine has terrific acceleration especially when needed to enter Atlanta's interstates. I recently read Consumer Report on the Colorado, and I think CR totally mis- represented the vehicle. We tried and my son bought a Toyota Tacoma. After test driving the Toyota and driving my son's Toyota, I still like the Colorado for its comfortable ride, acceleration, mileage, and ease of getting in and out.

Prior to test driving this truck I was a
little leary as to the performance of
the truck, even after reading many
positive reviews. I took the truck on a
24hr test drive and all I can say is
wow. It handles and performs like
dream. We purchased the Sport ZQ8 and
are very very happy.

I have found the truck to be just what
I wanted. It has a smooth comfortable
ride with excellent gas milage. It
offers the comfort and gas milage of an
automobile yet leaves me the option of
using it as a truck. I don't have the
need for a large truck but wanted
something that would allow me the
option of hauling a larger load than an
auto and yet have something better than
an SUV for gas milage. I also wanted a
vehicle that rode smooth and handled
well. This vehicle fit the bill. Its
just a fun vehicle to drive.
