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


Review

This truck is cheaply built. I have had to replace the tires on it at 30K miles. Now they tell me I need to spend $1500-2000 on new brakes, shocks, struts, and tie rods. I have had the front end aligned once and it needs it again at 50K miles. The interior molding in the windshield was ruined after 1 year. Numerous rattles and squeaks. I would be ashamed as a manufacturer to sell this vehicle.


Best Features

Gas mileage for a 5 speed manual transmission.


Worst Features

Sturdier build, better brakes and suspension package, more durable interior

Review


Truck comes lowered which ,along with
the 50 series tires, combine to emit a
disconserting semi "hobby horse" ride
quality on non asphalt
freeways.Typically ,the partitions in
the concrete slabs can bring on an
affect not too distant from that of
feeling as if the tires are out of
balance.The power is adequate-
especailly at the higher rpm levels
designed in the new 3.5L mill but the
initial low end grunt of the now
defunct 4.3 V-6 is missing.Comfort
levels and economy seem to be excellent
and the new look is refreshing and
aggressive.Wish the towing capacity was
a bit higher but for everyday use I
think the new Colorado will be just
fine.


Best Features

External appearance, higher horsepower rating and nice LS package


Worst Features

A more compliant ride over concrete surfaces-an upgrade on interior quality and 60 series tires to fill the wheel wells a bit more.
