Bought my Colorado the first year they came out with it. I find that it's easy to drive, reliable as heck. Thought that I wouldn't be able to take it off road but it's proved me wrong many times. I drive 48 miles to work one way and it's held up. I change the oil, tires and make sure not to buy cheap gas. I've even run E85 in it a couple of times when I've been in a pinch. Chevy made a great truck.
I installed the after marked window air-dams, and the dealers, interior grab handles above the door, other then that its a stock truck. I love the vehicle just as it sits.
Would love to see the gas mileage improved or a hybrid version of this truck.
Driver's side of cab has been filling with water ever since we got this pickup. Our dealership techs have been unable to fix this, despite repeated stays in their shop. It's been with them since before Thanksgiving this round (Jan.8,2007). For a brand new vehicle, this is unacceptable. We are looking into lemon law for resolution with GM.
Very nice little truck to knock around
town, but don't get it out on the
highway over 60mph without ear plugs
as it sounds like you were caught in a
wind storm (outside standard cab noise)
Dealer replaced windshield without
much if any help. Local dealer
admitted some have already traded in
standard cab models because of the
wind noise and said "I don't see how
the engineers missed this"
Brochure for LS model claims 6 radio
speaker but I can find only 4.
