Excellent value for the Money - A must look at Truck
By simplecars on


2012 Chevrolet Colorado 1LT 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.9L 4cyl 4A)


I tend to buy vehicles at the end of their design life -- bugs have been worked out, etc, and deals are there. This 2WD Colorado is an exceptional value for the money. It IS comfortable, looks great, and from other owners I talked to, is RELIABLE. In 3,000 miles so far this is the case. Don't listen to professional reviews that push you towards imports...they ALL have cheap plastic interior. Chevy did a great job on this truck. Perfect? No. Affordible, reliable, a great VALUE? YES YES YES. Have pulled pop up camper, hauled dirt and rock all in first months of use. Only wish 2WD models were easier to find on the lots...why do we need 4WD when roads are cleared soon after it snows?

Favorite Features

2 wheel drive, comfortable seats, extended cab allows for my 2 girls to come along (did not want to sacrifice the bed space for the 4 full doors crew cab), Sixteen inch tires (can not stand 17 inch and larger tires....no use and no need for them at all), trailer hitch and wiring installed at factory.

Suggested Improvements

MORE 2 wheel drive models on the dealer lots vs. 98% 4wd to 2% 2wd. Used to be the other way around. Biggest suggestion for truck would be to get rid of XM radio, On star. I've unplugged both. Don't need them yet they come on it no matter what.
