2004 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)
Truck is a great size for someone who doesnt want a full size. Rides great, gets excellent highway mileage (23- 25mpg), good city (16-18mpg), however when it is cold out and you have the heat on or the 4x4 expect (13-14mpg).
The body style and the size is great. I had an S-10 before the Colorado and you can see the difference. I sold my 2 year old S-10 because I couldn't fit in it anymore. It was my first truck when I got my license and didn't last long. I moved up to the Colorado and it fits me perfect
The General tires that come with it are absolutely the worst in production. You could put a butterknife through them with little effort. I had a twig puncture the sidewall of them while I was driving on a highway. I bought 4 new tires at the 4000 mile mark just to get them off
