Purchased 10 months ago, we have 15k
miles on the truck with no issues.
With the 4 cyl and 5 speed transmission
plus a tonneau cover (highly recommend)
this truck gets 28-30 mpg with A/C
running, loaded bed and running 75-80
mph. I just changed from Valvoline to
Mobile 1 0w30 and fuel economy went
from 28 to 30 mpg. Note- to get
performance from this engine shift at 4-
4500 rpms. Peak HP is at 5200 rpm. You
have to drive it like a Honda not a V8
Chevy to get it to run. I did a lot of
research, and talked to the mgr. of an
Advance Auto Parts, they use the same
truck with auto trans as parts runners.
They run 100-150K abusive miles with no
Styling, fuel economy, seats, cold A/C,
tight steering, short throw shifter,
cup holders, auto lights, ABS. Great
value for the price.
Electric fan for cooling would free up
additional hp, a little more leg room,
We should have bought extended cab.
Plastic used on dash/doors could be
better. New Colorado seems to have
addressed these issues.
