2004 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)


Review

I have had one problem after another with this truck. Started with feeling an air leak in the doors/windows on passenger side, then the heater fan would squeek, then the windows needed new regulators, then it wouldn't start and would buck when trying to turn over, then the a/c needed serviced when it had never been used before. I was told that a Service Bulletin was issued regarding these problems. Now its difficult to start at times and shakes when it wont turn over. A new truck with less than 13,000 miles on it shouldn't have this many problems, nor should it have been in the shop 6 times in 9 months. Shame on GM/Chevrolet. I am taking this one to arbitration. What a disappointment!


Best Features

The 4 wd is great in the snow, getting out of bad situations like steep inclines on streets or drives, it holds its own. The tow hooks in the front are great for pulling people out of ditch.


Worst Features

GM should repurchase all of the Colorados with these "Service Bulletins" problems instead of having their customers go back and forth to the Service Dept. over and over and/or leaving customers wondering when the next relay is going to act up and leave them stranded at the side of the road.

Review

After 18,000 miles and 3 General tire failures, a new set of Goodyears were recently put on. I still get a vibration between 45 & 65 mph. The airconditioning failed and it took a week to fix. Front bucket seat is uncomfortable. Very little leg support. My elbows are raw from the lack of padding on arm rest and center console.


Best Features

Digtal radio & CD player. Fuel economy. High towing capacity. Overall appearance.


Worst Features

Excessive vibration needs to be addressed in the Z71 4x4 crew cab. Add creature comfort regarding bucket seats. Larger seat and more padding. Arm rests need to be padded. More under seat and side panel storage.

Improve the inside. It's hard on the eyes.

Review

I drove a Chevy Avalanche in the past and the transition to this truck was quite a surprise. I love its light weight feel, it's planted footing around corners and it's space inside. The interior is utilitarian yet sophisticated without getting too fancy. The I-5 engine sings like a miniature V10. Revving it at a stoplight makes everyone think that you have done modivications to your exhaust system. This truck is phenomenal in the snow and offroad alike. The huge 265's it comes with are incredible. Nothing better than an abundance of rubber in a Z71. I am very pleased with the truck and hope to get another colorado or possibly an H3 Hummer with the same faboulus I-5 engine. Test it.


Best Features

-engine -fuel economy -lightweight and planted chassis around corners -fabulous driving experience for a pickup


Worst Features

-driver side vanity -glove box light -gas shocks and insulation for under hood. -different wheel choices. (tire packages)
