2006 Chevrolet Colorado 4dr Extended Cab SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


The truck has done its job. It not the most refined truck out there but it was inexpensive to buy. A previous review said the truck had problems with brakes locking up after a recall repair was performed at the dealership, and blamed GM for his problems. The same thing happened to me, got half way home and noticed the brakes were overheating. The tech that installed the new parts didn't properly adjust switches to accommodate brake pedal travel and they were dragging. It was an easy fix and the brakes are fine. He also complained about fuel economy. Well, if your brakes are dragging your fuel economy isn't going to be all that good. The check engine light in mine comes on regularly.

Best Features

I got aluminum wheels, cruise control and fog lights on a base truck, "street package". Price.

Worst Features

Check engine light is on as much as off, tail gate pull handle is not very confidence inspiring, feels like it's going to brake every time I open the tail gate.
