2006 Chevrolet Colorado LT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


I owned the truck since May of 07, it has 9000 miles on it and it's been in the shop 3 times all fuel related. Had to run premium in it so it wouldn't spark knock under load. I also had valve clatter on cold start up lasted 10 sec. The first time I took the truck in when the engine light came on they said I wasn't running the right fuel. It seems the truck has to run on top tier fuel from kwicktrip so I started running top tier in the engine. Had trouble again took it back to the dealer they said the have to replace the cylinder head because the valves were bad. The idle also sticks around 2800 rpm once and a while. I'm getting rid of the truck in 2008 wouldnt buy one again.

Best Features

I like the five speed manual trans shifts smooth and easy, the ride is pretty good for a small truck with 4 wheel drive, handles good too.

Worst Features

A little more horsepower, better console arangement with the cup holders, more room between the steering wheel and the seat, a key lock on the passenger door on trucks without power locks
