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


Use the truck for 154 mile RT daily commute and occasional hauling/trailering. Over 115K so far. Engine power seems low but it pulls and hauls well. Man trans has annoying grinding when going into 3rd gear. Lousy seat back tilt lever ergonomics: pull lever forward to tilt the seat back forward requires two hands, makes it hard to put things behind the seat. Put your stuff on the ground, move seat, pick stuff up, put behind seat ARRGH! What's worst, my left front spring has sagged and the replacement parts are only available from the dealer at a cost of $600. Lack of aftermarket really upsets me. I was a 17 year GM engineer. I will think long and hard before I will buy another GM vehicle.

Best Features

Fuel economy, trailering, hauling ability

Worst Features

Better manual trans synchros, one handed seat tilt lever feature, allow more aftermarket parts.
