Great Small Work Truck! — Very reliable and it has plenty of power to get out of the way! It's a simple designed truck with very low maintenance! The handling and the manual transmission makes it fun to drive! Iv'e never got stuck in the snow with the snow tires and some weight.

Gas Saver — I really love this truck. It has been a very reliable truck for me over the past six years. It gets really great gas mileage and rides great as well. Has plenty of power for a 4 cyl engine, had no problems pulling my 16 foot bass boat and trailer. Overall a wonderful truck.

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.

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

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.

04 Colorado 5 Speed — I had an 04 Colorado Base 2WD 5 Speed. The truck was a 2.8L 4 cyl and had ok power. My Colorado got decent mileage with the 4 cylinder.. about 26-27 on the highway... I had the truck for a short period because it was horrible in winter. Thats what I get for buying a two wheel drive in wisconsin...

Crappy Turning Radius — The turning radius is poor on my 2004 Colorado Crew Cab. My friend owns a Toyota and he can turn around with ease in a normal sized intersection. I have to stop and backup to make it.

Good Overall But Not Good For Towing — overall good truck but not for towing campers or anything big already had to replacethe engine. This truck is good when goin up into thoes hard to reach places in the woods...so great for hnting and fishing...if u want a towing truck do not buy this, if u want a good overall truck buy 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
