2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab Z85 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


I talked myself into buying this Chevy because I didn't want to pay an extra 4K for the Tacoma. I tried to look past the Consumer Report ratings, but they are pretty much dead on. The gas mileage is not bad, but not great either for a 5 cyl. I average 18.5 MPG in the summer with a mix of hilly and flat driving. Winter (with warming the car up) it averages 15.5 MPG. Towing a small trailer isn't too bad, except going up hills. Handling is good. Extended cab access is good. I like the size of the truck. Interior is cheap, seats are cheap. I've had it to the dealer 3 or 4 times in less than a year, luckily the warranty covered it all. Bed feels like it's made of tin. Won't buy again.

Best Features

Size, handling, styling, push button 4wd, compass/temp rear mirror

Worst Features

Cheap paint, cheap interior, cheap metal bed, mileage not that much better than stronger trucks, poor reliability
