2004 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Crew Cab ZQ8 LS Rwd SB (3.5L 5cyl 4A)


I love this truck! It isn't perfect,
but I find myself wanting to drive it
constantly which is contrary to my
(normal) desire to conserve gas.
Anyway, it is very quiet, smooth and a
pleasure to drive. My first tank of gas
netted 21 MPG and should go up after the
break-in period. Even though it has
good power, I find myself cruising at
moderate speeds as the temptation to
drive fast is not there. It's just
plain fun to drive in a relaxed manner.
I did kick it up once to see what the
"bean counters/lawyers" limited the top
speed. It "nosed over" at 98 MPH, but
it got there damned quickly!

Best Features

Engine, satellite radio, looks

Worst Features

The interior could have a more plush look and additional padding, esp. on the door panels. Also I would rather the rear seat cushions folded up rather than the backs folding down. Rear suspension can be a little bouncy and needs firmer shock valving.
