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.

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.

Nice Rental Truck — Aggressive Styling for the Xtreme Pkg., Excellent power and handling in comparison with its competitors, Spacious interior, no question about where to put your drink down with it having 6 cup holders, Sun and sound pkg. is a great addition with Six speakers stratigically placed throughout the cab and power sun roof, Lowered Suspension with the Xtreme pkg. including 18x8 inch wheels on on four corners to hold you to the ground. All in all the Colorado Xtreme is among the best. My opinion of course

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.

Great Mid-sized Truck — I love the handling and towing of this mid-sized truck but the shorter bed makes hauling longer items a bit harder than a full-size bed. The fuel economy is one of the best, especially for a truck and the comfort is spot on.

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.

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.

We Have Used This Truck In A Small Business And Could Not Ask For More. — Truck looks good and is very comfortable on those long days in the cab. The milage has been great and other than normal service very little has been required in 105,000 miles. Original tires went 60,000 miles, rear brakes at 104,000 miles who could ask for more. The Z71 Offroad suspension has provided a great ride with enough toughness to handle trailers. The 3.5 litre 5 cylinder engine has plenty of get up and go without emptying your wallet at the Pump. Highly recomend these trucks, Just replaced this one with a new V8 Colorado.

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 Midsize Truck. — This truck rides good but lacks in power. Will pull my boat but I would hate to pull anything bigger. 5 foot bed is a little small. Overall a great truck and I have not had no major problems. Hope to get a full size truck next.
