2006 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought new 24 months ago and so far so good. Roomy cab, comfortable ride, and fair fuel ecomomy. Has nice stereo and was reasonably priced. It's my 3rd new Chevy pickup and I think I liked my last S-10 a little better.


Favorite Features

Looks, head and leg room. Fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Could redesign cupholders, slightly underpowered.

2006 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The truck has done its job. It not the most refined truck out there but it was inexpensive to buy. A previous review said the truck had problems with brakes locking up after a recall repair was performed at the dealership, and blamed GM for his problems. The same thing happened to me, got half way home and noticed the brakes were overheating. The tech that installed the new parts didn't properly adjust switches to accommodate brake pedal travel and they were dragging. It was an easy fix and the brakes are fine. He also complained about fuel economy. Well, if your brakes are dragging your fuel economy isn't going to be all that good. The check engine light in mine comes on regularly.


Favorite Features

I got aluminum wheels, cruise control and fog lights on a base truck, "street package". Price.


Suggested Improvements

Check engine light is on as much as off, tail gate pull handle is not very confidence inspiring, feels like it's going to brake every time I open the tail gate.

2006 Chevrolet Colorado LT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Absolutly no problems. Handles well, comfortable ride. Looks great too. Would like better gas mileage of course, but it is as advertised. Design of the seat belt placement not comfortable for short person( I'm 5'3"). Love the OnStar, will never have another car without it!


Favorite Features

OnStar!


Suggested Improvements

Design of the seat belt placement, not comfortable for a short person.

2006 Chevrolet Colorado LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I find this truck to be extremely comfortable. It has the Z71 package and the I5 engine. It pulls a light bass boat with ease and get respectable mpg about 17mpg to 22pg. It is loaded with leather and all the toys. Love the truck.

Review

This truck has been great. A long awaited replacment of the S-10 (and I had 1). I have the Z-71 package and it does well off-road and I have put it through its paces.


Suggested Improvements

An optional SS v-8 version.
