Traded in my 15 year old S-10 on the cash for clunker deal. Nice enough truck. The front seats are a little cheap. The floor pan is up much higher that I am used to, feel like you are sitting in a little kid chair. If I plan to keep it for a while I will have to yank the bed liner out as it is starting to leave a gouge in the paint on the tailgate and front wall lip. Very roomy both front and rear. Plenty of power, at least for me. Weird thing about the cash for clunker deal, I got $3500 for my S-10 because the gas mileage on the Colorado was supposed to be better. I got 20 mpg consistently with the S-10. I get maybe 18 with the Colorado.
Good ride on highways and secondary roads. Roomy cab.
Truck came w/out fender flares. these are a must have, tires stick out a good 2 inches from fender lip. I took mine to a body shop to have aftermarkets installed. They ran the VIN, came back that truck had factory flares installed.
