Overall a nice smaller sized truck. Gas mileage is okay at best, average 22 hwy and city. I've had few issues with since I bought it new in Sept 09. 1st, the battery continued to fail and leave me stranded over and over, the dash board creeks, pops, and whatever noise you could imagine, and lastly I get moisture in the oil over and over again. Dealership says its fine.
i bought a 2009 Colorado with the 4 cylinder in it 4x4 5 speed manual i like that the truck is 4x4 and gets good fuel mileage i also like the looks of it but ever since 9,000 miles hit i have had many problems and the dealer is great on fixing it but its just one things after another they have a line a dealers so i don't think i am gonna buy anther chevy unless its a diesel
the looks fuel mileage 4x4 5 speed

Traded in my 15 year old S-10 on the cash for clunker deal. Nice enough truck. The front seats are a little cheap. The floor pan is up much higher that I am used to, feel like you are sitting in a little kid chair. If I plan to keep it for a while I will have to yank the bed liner out as it is starting to leave a gouge in the paint on the tailgate and front wall lip. Very roomy both front and rear. Plenty of power, at least for me. Weird thing about the cash for clunker deal, I got $3500 for my S-10 because the gas mileage on the Colorado was supposed to be better. I got 20 mpg consistently with the S-10. I get maybe 18 with the Colorado.
Good ride on highways and secondary roads. Roomy cab.
Truck came w/out fender flares. these are a must have, tires stick out a good 2 inches from fender lip. I took mine to a body shop to have aftermarkets installed. They ran the VIN, came back that truck had factory flares installed.

Just picked up vehicle today---to early to rate anything. There are 3 things I would suggest be changed. The rubber floor mats are worthless, to slick and you can't really even use them, the steering wheel needs to be covered, also to slick, the CD drawer needs complete revision. You almost need to stop the vehicle to return one to the holder. Not well designed.Irv
