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


Review

A really nice vehicle for the price. It drives well, rides well, and the strong 5 cyl engine gives a steady 23 mpg mixed use. Wish it had come with XM radio, but those were hard to find. I immediately flushed out the cheap tires for Michelins. There were too many warranty trips to fix dumb things, but the warranty service was excellent and no hassle.


Best Features

The seat is excellent for my back. Can ride long distances OK. Good ergo designs, from the cup holders to electric switches. Excellent engine/tranny match. And it's a good looker too.


Worst Features

GM quality control remains awful! Had to have the springs replaced (springs??!), and the battery went out in under a year. Some wind noise from the door seals. Need to assemble this nice truck in a Japanese factory with Toyota running the parts QC! Fix that silly squeaking noise from the AC.

Review

Recently purchased this vehicle after much research and I am highly impressed with this machine. External looks are impressive. Inside design suits my taste to a T. Sound system is excellent. Could not be happier with the combination of power and fuel economy of the 5 cylinder engine and 4 speed automatic. Price was also right.


Best Features

Especially love the look of the front end. Excellent sound system. Low maintenance design. Clean lines.


Worst Features

Full size spare would be good.

Review

For being a 4 cylinder it has good power and great fuel efficency. I have the automatic and I get 20.8 in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The transmission is smooth.


Best Features

suicide doors, I like the front end cosmetics, smooth ride on the highway


Worst Features

gas and brake pedal are close together. could make the extended cab about 2 or more inches bigger or change the seating arrangement in back.
