Nice looking but too many problems

2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)

Review

Got this truck and it was great. The promise of an inline 5 engine to save gas seemed promising but it burns gas hard. The first thing to go bad was the air conditioning, it would just stop and only the highest speed (4) would work and the others would start when they want to. Then there was a problem where the brake lights would stop working, had to take it in to the dealer to fix these problems a lot and just the brake switch is OK now after we found there was a recall on the brake switch. The engine has this problem now that the dealer claims to have fixed twice where the RPM drops low/stalls and causes overheating cause engine fan spins too slow and the lights get dim.

Favorite Features

4WD on the fly, the styling, windows work without key in ignition if door was not opened, with a lot of weight in back didnt seem to have much problems.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the suspension problems. I cannot press the gas pedal on any bumpy roads or it feels like it's about to spin out, and ride is much too bumpy even for a truck, drove a tacoma and felt wrong choice was made
