2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab Z71 LS 4WD SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)
The vehicle was purchased in 07 with only 15k. .I drove it through the winter and summer without problem. Possibly ran 5k.In the fall of the year I was on a dirt trail, rough road for the weekend trip. Afterwards I had to replace the front ball joints as they had been worn. Also all four shocks were leaking fluid and I replaced those also. The original shocks are not much more than a piece of plastic covering a cylinder My neighbor had just purchased a new Colorado, 4 cylinder,two wheel drive (2009)and his shocks are the same as what I had. I have a 4x4 what is up with that? The factory shocks and front end parts are garbage.I replaced with after market .So much for Mr.Goodwrench
I have the larger engine 3.5ltr, It does well on fuel as far as trucks are concerned. Nice to have the 4x push button when needed
Ergonomics.. The push buttons for the 4x controls are located directly above the stereo/cd player. Inadvertently I have at times placed the vehicle in 4x while tuning or the children have. Place controls on the left driver side as you have done on other models
