2005 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab Z85 Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Since I have had this truck I have loved it. It feels more comfortable than my old F250 that I traded in and the fuel economy is much better. I have made it from Stow, Ohio to Roanoke, Virginia on half a tank of gas. The truck runs smooth and quiet, you can really feel the power of the engine as well with all of the pick up and go. Since I have had the truck I have had the bed lined with Line-X and I have added a class 3 hitch to pull a pop-up camper and my boat. Even when towing the truck has shown no problems. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a good mid size truck today.


Best Features

I like having the exterior lighting automatic and I like the basic feature of A/C in the truck.


Worst Features

I think that if alloy wheels were standard it would make a great improvement as well as standard CD players in the vehicles.

Review

I really enjoy driving this truck. I've had no problems at all. I have yet to get under 21 mpg. Have gotten as high as 28.1. The 2.8L 4cyl is very surprising in the amount of power it puts out. Would definitely buy another one if I was in the market.


Best Features

Looks, power and economy.


Worst Features

Keyed passenger door lock.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab Z85 Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a pretty average truck. It doesnt really excel in any area. I went on a trip to Wisconsin and was driving thru the mountains and the little 4 cylinder engine could not take it. It's comfortable inside but not great. Long trips are tiring. The manual is pretty good but needs a broader range of shifting. And what is up with no key holes on the passenger door?!!!


Best Features

The driver's center is pretty cool


Worst Features

Better engines! Better Shifting! More room in the cab. Key holes on the passenger door. Better fabric on the seats. A V6 option!!! OR maybe even V8?!!

Review

I purchased my Colorado as a replacement for my S10. As a long time Chevrolet customer I was very disappointed in the ride. My standard cab seat is very uncomfortable to the point I have been trying to trade or get rid of it already. My back's taking a beating. Other than poor ride it seems to handle good and has been dependable. I sought help from the dealer and from Chevrolet without relief. Factory said too bad thats the way its made and there is no defect. Looking for something else


Best Features

Nice body style , room, plenty of cargo room.


Worst Features

Lumbar support in the seat. Perhaps a change in the seat design that would allow it to lean back slightly would make it more bareable

Review

It's been a fun vehicle with lots of utility for a value priced truck. Great gas mileage. Highway up to 30 mpg.


Worst Features

Lock with key on passenger side. very inconvenient when traveling with a passenger or trying to retrieve something from the passenger side.
