2004 Chevrolet Colorado Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Z85 LS Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my Chevy Colorado in 2004 with 3 miles on it and now 7 years later have 116XXX and climbing, I have driven my truck like I stole it since the day I bought it. I have added a few performance things to the engine but have never done any major overhauls yet. Main thing with these trucks is to do the maintenance as scheduled, and they do have problems with the blower motors but that is an easy fix.


Favorite Features

Light weight truck and drives great up to 75MPH, great on gas average 24MPG but have gotten as much as 30MPG when I keep my foot out of the gas on the interstate.


Suggested Improvements

Needs a stronger clutch and maybe different style cup holders

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Z85 LS Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

My Colorado has been such a let down. It feels way too light going down the road. It bounces and is not responsive. Although aesthetically the car is nice, it just did not perform the way I thought it should.


Favorite Features

The engine


Suggested Improvements

Sturdier, heavier frame. Also a nice option would be an availible v8, but that's most likely out of the question

Review

LOOKS & FEELS LIKE A FULL SIZE TRUCK. GREAT STYLING. SPACIOUS INTERIOR WITH VERY COMFORTABLE SEATS. GREAT BRAKES. AWSOME CD SOUND, RACK & PINION STEERING. 5SPEED TRANNY SHIFTS LIKE A SPORTS CAR. I-4 ENG IS QUITE POWERFUL (175HP). FANTASTIC GAS MILEAGE (I"M GETTING BETWEEN 26 & 27 MPG). I RECENTLY HAULED 10 SHEETS OF PLYWOOD ACROSS THE STATE & FOUND THE TAILGATE 55 DEGREE SELECTION WORKS QUITE WELL. YOU CAN PLACE FULL SHEETS OF PLYWOOD DOWN FLAT INSIDE OF BED.


Favorite Features

I FIND THE FRONT SEATS TO BE VERY COMFORTABLE. HI TECH ENG & TRANNY ARE AWSOME.


Suggested Improvements

PASSENGER DOOR CAN ONLY BE UNLOCKED FROM INSIDE THE TRUCK. THERE IS NO KEY HOLE OUTSIDE. I FIND THIS TO BE ANNOYING. MY TRUCK CAME WITH GENERAL TIRES. I'M NOT A FAN OF GENERAL TIRES.
