Great Truck For The Price — My review in a nutshell: Great work truck. Does very well for fuel efficiency. I would recommend this truck to anyone looking for a light duty work truck who may be concerned about spending too much money on both fuel and repairs.

Ok Truck — i like it but need more room for the kids and their things. Our other car is even smaller so we need something that works better when we travel. just going to work and moving things it has worked great.

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.

Great mid-sized truck for a family or off-roading.

Cons

Bed could be a bit longer.

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.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

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.

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!

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.
