Bad in Winter

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...

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

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 Choice — Like the look interior and exterior. Like the interior space (quite roomy compared to the Toyota, Nissan, Dodge, and Ford. Wish it was a little bit wider. Wish it had a long bed. Good engine power. Good handling. Expensive key's and keyless entry clickers. Expensive steering wheel and crash bag.

MPG, power.

It's Alright. — The lift kit and the tires make the truck into a TRUCK. It's just the inline 5 that lacks any power. There's just no real low end torque and little power throughout the power band. The truck is alright, but I was expecting a bit more.

Look, feel, room

School Bus sounding brakes, 2 tires were defective when the truck was NEW.

My Chevy Colorado — I love my truck, although better gas millage and longer light bulb life would be nice. Also the brakes are really loud when wet. When I first bought the truck, I had two tires go flat, one with bad wearing the other went bad a few months later. Both were replaced with no hassle.

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

Nick's Rado — The truck is red with black 20" wheels. Just recently got the bed Line-X'd...best money i have ever put into that truck! I have, however, had to rebuild the tranny once (stripped the splines on the sun shell) and had the tranny replaced the second time it happened.

Power! — Stock is very powerful and great gasmileage on a big I-4 engine. Comfortable sometimes. Will pull out a 2006 Nissan Titan out of the mud.Transmission is loud on the 5-spd.
