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


Review

I've had my truck a little over a year now, and it is by far the most reliable and easiest to maintain car or truck I've owned. I have a regular cab xtreme zq8 model and I have had no issues what so ever and have only had to do rear drums and change the oil for maintenance. My only complaint is the 2.8 is a little slow while accelerating but once your at speed it's smooth and quiet. I average 32 mpg highway since I drove everyday and can get 450+ miles a tank. I would recommend a colorado to anyone.

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


Review

I have owned my truck since new and have put over 100K miles on her, now and have never experienced a single issue.
I do regular maintenance and she is the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned.


Best Features

I love that she looks and functions like a truck but the 4 cylinder 2.8 offers plenty of power and is VERY easy on the gas!! Avoid the I5 cylinder.


Worst Features

Stay away from the inline 5 cylinder that lacks power for a gas guzzler.

Review

Around 2500 mile i had loss of power.And then around 16,000 mile timing chain and gears were replaced. And then around 18,000 mile the oil pump went out which caused the engine to go out. now it has been in the shop for about 8 weeks and GENERAL MOTORS says its not there problem because it is 2010 now even though problems started under there factory warranty. it has been a nightmare. i have always liked gm up till now, it wont happen again.

Review

Owned for a year. Previous owner took care of the truck and kept it clean and serviced. I am doing the same. It runs well and am impressed by the quality of engineering. The ride is excellent, especially for a truck. As long as I keep it serviced on time I have seen no indication of any service issues either in person or in the internet.


Best Features

The 4-door layout. Back seat is roomier than most cars out there and still able to haul something in the bed. The Sunburst Orange is also an attractive color with the Extreme trim package.


Worst Features

The engineer that came-up with the spare tire system has never had to change a spare tire before. It is time consuming and labor intensive. The jack works, but I do not get that warm fuzzy feeling when I am using it. I have had two flat tires in a year and would give this system a failing grade.
