It is a truck

2007 Chevrolet Colorado LS 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 5M)
Have had this model for one year. There have not been any problems thus far and to myself it is an improvement over the S-10.There are gas issues...to wit: using 87 octane will cause the engine to be stubborn or bucking as such. Using 89 octane takes care of that. But the tires are something else. The are Generals made in Mexico and they are absolute junk! I would think that Chevy Division would do something about this. No use in going the warranty route since the replacements will be of the same junk. Three of the four tires have bumps on them. Lastly, the hand-brake release needs to be better engineered since at times I have to pull, pull, and pull on the brake release handle.
The headlights are quite good, the layout of the instruments are great, and the shifter is where it should be.
Replace the tires with better quality ones! A bit more firmness in the seats, especially in the back, buckets would be nice with a storage box in the middle behind the shifter. And, have the parking/hand brake control in the middle where is should be as well.
