automatic transmission vortec 3500 220
hp 3.5 5cyl engine. Great ride, the
only problem I have is the tires. The
tires are not very good and break
tracksion on wet streets in rwd.
4wd is great with the major snow we
have had. Interior very big and comfy.
2004 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab ZQ8 LS Rwd SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)
It has a 5 cylinder engine. The best
mileage to date is 16.1 on pure
interstate driving at 65 miles per
hour. The 19.5 gallon gas tank leaves
me wondering Why? With only a 300 mile
driving range I am constantly having
to visit the Gas Station.The exterior
is very eye catching but here begins
the lack of quality. The hood has
provisions for insulation but it is
missing and not offered. The doors
leak wind noise and sometimes even
water. Hoses, cables and tubes routed
ender the truck are installed with no
attention to detail and bang against
the under side. The inner fender wells
lack fasteners and rattle. The endless
use of bare plastic in the interior
also adds to rattles.
This truck was worked up as a family
vehicle not a commercial utility
truck.This fails in both respects and
in reality what G.M. has produced is a
sub-low quality utility truck with all
the rattles and squeaks of a rusted
out 1968 Chevy truck with half a
million miles.It looks good though!
all aspects of this truck fails except
its style! Work on quality and
workmanship! This is what we want!This
is what we paid for!!!
I've had my Colorado just about a year
and it has been EXCELLENT! The truck
went back to the dealer for a loose
electrical connector to the emissions
system and hasnt been back other than
oil changes and a tire rotation. This
truck is still very impressive. There
are no squeaks or rattles, with over
20K on the clock. The I5 performs
nicely. It's not a tire burner, but
there is plenty of oomph when needed
It pulls my horse trailer with no
problems and performs predictably with
a full load in the bed. Handling is
excellent, as it is better than a few
cars I have owned. My Orange Sunburst
Chevy still turns heads and looks
great. I'd still pick it over a 2005
Toyota or Nissan.
Price and bang for the buck. A
comparable Toyota whould have cost
$5000 more than the Chevy. The I5
engine is great! Great gas mileage,
and just as much power as a V6.
The XM Radio is wonderful. I don't
listen to FM stations anymore.
Interior parts are a little plasticky.
I would have paid a little more better
dash materials, Otherwise the colorado

I have the Z-85 extended cab.It is a
great truck.The I-5 cyclinder 220 hp
is really gutsy.If your looking for a
mid size truck,this is the one for
you.As you can see i love everything
about this truck.The S-10 is no match
for this one.This is a real
cruiser.Check out my ratings.
Push button 4wd system,sound system,I
just like everything.
