Wimpy gas burner.
By Dave on


2006 Chevrolet Colorado LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (2.8L 4cyl 4A)


This I5 engine is terrible. It runs like a 4 cylinder and burns gas like a 6 cylinder. The truck itself is generally comfortable and somewhat stylish, but it really needed a better engine and something that could get mileage closer to the estimate on the sticker. I've owned since it was new and I've actually had no major problems, but I'm tired of fighting the fuel bills and the lack of power.

Best Features

I like the way it gets around in the snow with the 4 wheel drive and I like the 4 door configuration.

Worst Features

Put a GM 4.3 liter V-6 engine in this truck and it would be a winner.
