A Nice Truck For The Money, But Not My Money. — In my quest to find a mid-sized 4-door truck as my daily driver I found myself seated in a Chevrolet Colorado. I thought that I would be impartial and try both foreign and domestic trucks alike. The aluminum 5-cylinder engine (242-hp) boasts healthy mileage of 17-city and 23-highway. It felt surprisingly strong for an engine missing a cylinder. It pushed me off the line and through corners with ease. It was actually enjoyable to drive. The exterior looks rather old, but still has enough sparkle to keep you interested. The interior followed the same pattern - nothing really special. If I was a "Chevy Guy" I would be very happy to purchase this truck. But I'm not and probably will never be again after my vast experiences with domestic automobile issues.

Pros

Great compact size truck, gets the job done, and isn't too big.

Cons

BAD factory sound system.

Love It. — Wish the wheels could hold larger rims without changing the tires. Better sound system is MUCH needed. The system isn't even close to what a factory set should be. Price wasn't bad, it's done its job thus far. Drive is smooth and not a bad ride, even on the highway!

2006 Colorado Crew Cab — Performance is ok could be better if i put more money into it. it helps me work though. it has its fair amounts of dings on it. gas is better than you think it would be on my truck because its a inline 4. It is an overall fun car to drive. especially in the snow. only has rear wheel drive.

Good, Dependable, Comfortable Ride. — I bought this truck new in the summer of '06 with every option available (the 3LT) including trailering setup. It has been a really dependable truck. Once I put the bed cover on it my mileage on long trips was as high as 25 mpg. Once they switched to ethanol blends, my mileage is still about 22 on the interstate and 19 around town. The 3.5 has plenty of power even when towing my 19' center console boat. The ride is comfortable and the leather full power seats w/ heat can't be beat. The back seat is a different story. it can comfortably fit 2 garden gnomes, anything larger is scrunched up. I have 106K miles and maintenance has been minimum. I did a full brake job recently, changed the thermostat and hoses, and solenoid on the charcoal canister. Other than that, zero problems. And the brakes really didn't need it, just thought after 100k they should. I just wish they still made them this year.

I Am Amazed At The Build Quality After Owning A Toyota! — The truck has been perfect and the gas mileage is much higher than the EPA rated it. The cab is super quiet. Truck tracks perfect with 80,000 miles on it and seems like it wants to coast forever.Engine and trans are super smooth. The truck has shown no signs of wear and other than one set of tires and front brakes only this mostly city driven Colorado comes very highly recommended. I love this truck!

Lots of looks and it handles well for a truck.

Cons

Awful ride quality and build quality.

Wouldn't Get The Zq8 Suspension Package Again, Other Than That I Would Get Another Colorado — The suspension aspect of the truck is great for corners, but thats about it, handles the bumps horrible. It also has pretty good power for the gas mileage that it gets, which is about 20mpg. The build quality, is well Chevy like. No major problems at 57,000 miles

Good For A Daily Driver — Get one if you're planning on using the bed only on occasion. And when carrying load you're not in a rush, because power is seriously lacking. Its a truck, so handling was not great, but since this truck is so slow that shouldn't be much of an issue.

A Good Trick — A good truck blah blah blah best looking smail truck out there. everyone myself included wants a tacoma or frontier, but they are simply not worth the ask in used car pricing. good reliable truck. get a sports car if you want performance. get a truck if you want to work. nuff said.
