2005 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab ZQ8 LS Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The truck is an electrical and engine mechanical nightmare. Problems are too many to list. But here is a few common annoying issues. Tires wear on the front end no matter how many or by who the alignment is done by. There is a theft deterrent ignition that will make you late to muliple appointments on a regular basis. Changein the ignition switch is a costly waist of time. The fix for this issue is to wait 10minutes and try again starting the truck. Hopefully it does. The blower for the a/c works when it wants to. Eventually leadeing to a 100% failure burning out the wireing harness also. Dash lighting works 60% of the time. There is a sound made by the engine top end that sounds like the truck is a diesel. This is a gasoline engined vehicle. Exhause manifold cracks if water is splashed on it while driveing. Basically this is why chevrolet is no longer the manufacturer of choice for me. I've been a chevy fan for most of my life. They managed to change my opinion by designeing and building this truck with the help of crackheads.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 2dr Regular Cab ZQ8 LS Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I recently purchased a new 2005
Colorado ZQ8 Regular cab with the 5
cylinder and manual transmission. The
truck performs well and accellerates
better than I expected. The handlng is
sharp, but with a slight penalty in
ride quality. The interior is smartly
executed, with everything in good
reach, and the seats are way more
supportive than the ones in my
previous S-10. The Interior space is
immensely more too. The styling is
killer, and in black it looks mean
going down the road.


Best Features

New I-5 engine is very strong, exterior styling on reg cab. Nice seats and good LS package (cruise, tilt and buckets). Handling is best on any truck I have been in.


Worst Features

Doors close kind of hard, notchy shifter, potholes send shudders through cabin.

Review

I previsouly had a ford ranger and now
currently a colorado, I like the
colorado a lot better in some ways. I
have the 3.5 I-5 liter which has more
power than my previous 4.0 V6 The
towing capacity is lower than that of
my ranger. overall I am happy with the
truck. The colorado handles turns very
well.


Best Features

the 6 disc cd changer, peppy engine


Worst Features

Gm trucks has always sucked when it comes to the dash and interior qualities they always look outdated
