Review

As a first time truck owner, I was a little unsure of what to truly expect after driving it off of the lot. After driving the truck for about 2 months now, I can say that I made a good decision! The truck responds quickly to driver input, with very little delay at highway speed. The only negative I have is the response off of the line. Low end torque needs to be adjusted. Other than that, the Colorado is a versatile little horse. It's a keeper!


Favorite Features

Crew cab size, sunroof


Suggested Improvements

Increase low-end torque

Review

I bought the truck because I am a huge chevy fan. My prior vehicle was the S- 10 and should have kept it. I have had the Colorado for a year and had it to the dealer 6 times for repair, twice for the same thing! It has cost a lot of wasted time. I would strongly recommend using caution when buying a first year model!


Favorite Features

Good power and spacious interior


Suggested Improvements

Improve front suspention design

Review

I was just hit by a Honda Odyssey that ran a red light. My truck weathered the blow pretty well considering I was not moving and the other car was going about 45 mph. My daughter and I walked away from the wreck with no injuried and the truck remained remarkably intact with the excepton of the hubcaps that were shattered, and the rear axle was twisted (the other car hit me directly in the rear tires). I loved that truck, I miss it, and plan on getting another one.


Favorite Features

I loved the simple, yet new styling of the interior. I also liked the smooth freeway handling and surprisinngly high power and speed I got from the 4 cyl engine! It is easy to work on myself on the simple routine maintenance such as oil, oil filter, air filter, and brake pad changes.


Suggested Improvements

Slightly higher ground clearance. A DC outlet on the tailgate.

Review

This roomy little truck drives smoothly and saves me a lot on gas. I can haul my son's gokart around with no problem. I can seat up to six people comfortably and I get many compliments on its good looks.
