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


Review

Body & engine tight and smooth, interior trim a little rough(headliner doesn't fit shugly). Seat-belt receptacle cover breaks easily). Five speed shifts out smoothly for 1-5,but often resists going into reverse. Impressive acceleration for a 4- cylinder. Decent gas mileage averaging about 22 with a 50/50 mix of city & highway going all-out...26 highway if I nurse it. Only maintenance in 48,000 miles has been oil, filters, & tires.


Best Features

Surprisingly quick acceleration, smooth ride.


Worst Features

Put a lock on the passenger side door when sell with maunal locks.

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


Review

The truck overall is a good truck. It get great gas mileage. The fit and finish of the truck is my problem. It rattles, creeks and groans. I've had the truck since it was new and it sound like it's a old truck. The dash make noise and overall the truck just sounds old. Power is OK, but that's all. Not as good as a full size truck for the fit and finish


Best Features

Size of the truck, ease of handling & gas mileage


Worst Features

Improve the overall fit & finish.

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


Review

I bought a 2 wheel drive work truck, couldn't afford the 4 wheel or the fancy models, but i have been pleased with the performance. It handles the logging roads in Maine without a care. It has crossed small streams and handled rutted muddy roads without issue. I live on a mountain and with studded snow tires I have made it home in the worst no'r easters like it was a july day. The gas mileage is good. I average 23 day to day here in the foot hills of the Berkshires and get 25 plus on trips. The regular cab is wide enough and the seats are comfortable on long trips with plenty of leg room. It's not a rocket ship but it moves out well when you step on it.


Best Features

The work truck comes with cruse, tilt and air conditinoing as a standard feature.


Worst Features

Come on GM this is 2006, everyone has CD's. Put a CD player in every new vehicle. I told my dealer I would take the truck if it had a CD player. He had one installed on his dime. Make all trucks with locking differentials, you can never have too much traction on the roads here in New England.

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


Review

I am a devoted Chevy supporter, but I wish I would have not purchased this GM product. I haven't had the truck 2 years and my transmission needs to be repaired (cost $2500). I can not begin to understand how the torque converter overheated causing the 2nd and 4th bands to lock up so it will not shift into gear (its an automatic). Since I have had the truck, it was not calibrated correctly to make a left hand u-turn, you have to back up and make 2 or 3 attempts to complete a left handed u-turn. I have had issues with the tailgate lock not unlocking. This is a poor product GM has come up with to replace the S-10. Gas mileage is horrible, I only get 18 mpg on the highway. Recall had to fix 2x.


Best Features

The outside is sporty looking. Like the tires on the truck.


Worst Features

Carry brand of tires you sell on the vehicles, work with customers on correcting issues with trucks,improve gas mileage, don't wait until after people have had to do repairs to have a recall.

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


Review

There are just too many small trucks around today to have to settle for a Colorado. The actual mpg is far less than rated, the fit & finish trim work very poor, (loose and flimsy) and still priced around the better quality made trucks.


Best Features

Nice clean look inside and out.


Worst Features

Chevy needs to get better mileage out of these trucks, and more attention to details, if its worth installing install it right.
