Good little truck
By J B on
2004 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned this vehicle for right at a year now. I purchased it used with 43000 miles on it. I know I paid too much for it but I have no one to blame for that but myself. The vehicle has suprising pep and power for a 5 cyl engine. I'm not completely impressed with MPG as I get anywhere from 17-21 depending on the style of driving I'm doing. I bought the small truck in hopes of better. The truck will absolutely tow a lot more than GM rates it for. Just towed an 8000 lb tractor home after a breakdown. It's definitely worth a look. GM needs to get more advertising out on this vehicle instead of letting it die like I'm hearing they are doing.
Power, looks, just enough creature comforts, auto lights
Make the grille and healight assmblies stronger. I didn't notice one being broken on mine at purchase do to a fly by night repair job. The parts are expensive and could be better. Lead the industry and figure out a way to get 25mpg average 4wd small truck. You will sell more than you can make
