Pros

Lots of power for being an I5. Sleek looking, comfortable and great road trip truck

Cons

The only cons I have are the back seats. A little tough with car seats and infant seats

Dream — I love this truck. Fun, Fast, handles great and is ready to go to work when it needs to. This was my work truck and weekend cruiser. Aftermarket cold air intake increased my hp and gas mileage, it was a great add-on.

Pros

It will drive (if nothing else), good gas mileage

Cons

Big equipment shortfalls, built from low quality materials, lots of non engine things stop working, even the speakers get wet because of the bad weather seals.

It Will Get You To Work, Is Reliable, But It Doesn't Mean You're Going To Have A Comfortable Trip. — I will give this truck 4 stars for being reliable enough to not have major work done on it in the last 7 years I've owned it, with 125K miles on it. But the fan blower only works on setting #4, it stalls out when turning sharp turns sometimes in the cold, and lacks acceleration during first 30 seconds of travel. But an induction service next week should clear all of that up. Apart from that, the engine has worked well, no transmission problems, and has reliably gotten me to work for several years.

I Will Own This Truck Til It Dies Most Likely — the only thing that I would change about my truck is that it is automatic, but as far as performance I love it. The belt will squeak occasionally when it rains, but once it dries off it goes away. I love both the interior and exterior construction and design. Gas mileage is decent, but it is still a truck.

Colorado Truck — performance is decent with decent mpg about 18/20. haven't had any problems with it at all! has 51000 miles on it. The little 5 cylinder puts out enough power to pull my little 14' fishing boat. Nice little truck.

Good Off-roader, Great Gas Mileage — Well, I like the power and sound of the 5 cylinder, and it runs great. However the handling is a bit choppy. The interior build quality is crap, the plastics feel too breakable. The appearance is sporty and fun. This truck is funn to drive!

Pros

Fantastic stance, wonderful ride, good performance, easy for loading and unloading children, beautiful look, and comfortable.

Cons

gas mileage is a little lower than I would prefer, but I will update that information following the tuneup I'm doing.

2004 Colorado Z71 Crew Cab Is A Home Run — My wifes truck. The higher stance and fender flares from the Z71 package are fantastic. The I-5 3.5L engine puts out more power than I expected it to and is very responsive. Unfortuantely we are only getting around 18 MPG in it currently, but I plan on doing an extensive tune-up on it to see if we can't gain a few more MPG. It is built solid and the ride is wonderful. This truck thus far has been very fun to drive around and is very easy to get our three children in and out of.

Ok Truck — Well, I have had to replace 3 bulbs in the past 6 months. Last year when it got to 12 below 0, it was in "limp" mode and it cost over $900 to fix. I also had to get the brakes done. Other than that, it is pretty freaking sweet. 4-door, inline-5, orange with black trim, and fast as hell! I have had to bring it in 4 times because the blower would stop working. Each time I had to pay $100 for my insurance deductible. I had to being it in last month, no more warranty, and the jerk-off at Suburban Chevrolet tells me that I have to pay $725 to replace the resistor, blower motor, and the wiring harness. The problem had nothing to do with what he said. Chevrolet paints the inside of the fenders. There is a grounding block that is attached to the passenger side fender, but because of the paint, it was not grounding properly. I unbolted it, sanded it down to the bare metal, put on a washer, and the blower now works. A hell of a lot cheaper than $725! Chevrolet doesn't seem to give a rat's a** about it's blunder to make a recall fix for it.

Nathan's Colorado — I love this truck! It gets great mileage, has power to do significantly faster than legal speeds, and can carry a dead coon without having it in the passenger compartment
