Chevy Colorado, a decent truck
By jms on
2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)
After a bad start my Chevy Colorado has proven to be a decent truck. Getting 18 mpg. My bad start had me back at the dealer 4 times to fix a noisy dash. After switching to another dealer they found the hood was the culprit all along. My main complaint is the sound of this engine. It sounds like a Volvo or Audi. Also the gas pedal is too close to the brake pedal. I love the looks of the exterior, but the interior is very basic. It does feel kind of cheap overall. Great rebates and additional dealer discounts made me go with the Chevy instead of the new Toyota or Nissan. I do wish it was a little closer to the other midsize trucks in size, although that does make it easier to fit in the average size garage.
Looks and incentives
Put the straight 6 from the Trailblazer in. Bigger wheels than the 15 inchers on my Z71.
