I've actually owned all but the Silverado. I bought the Colorado because of the novelty of owning a 5 cylinder, but it actually runs GREAT! Great gas mileage (28 around town) and carries my family, too! I'd like to have one of the larger trucks but the gas mileage is the downfall. Now, I'd LOVE to have my '69 Camaro back but just can't find a good used one at a decent price anymore; mine was all original and would be worth well over $140K now!

The Colorado In Colorado — Performance: slow to accelerate... good breaks. Quality: Great, except for customibility. Appearance: Great but can have a lower stance. Cost: good, doesn't use a lot of gas especially on high way. Fun: sound quality and roomy for vacation with friends.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Not To Happy With It — I had to have the head replaced on this truck at like 30k miles because of a factory mess up...I just was never happy with it after that, the dealership said it was fine, but it would randomly get hot in stop n go traffic after that, and they would never take it in traffic to check it, so of course could never diagnose problem, at 50k miles it started to have lots of little problems, so I just traded it in on my VW.

sucky gas mileage and interior rattles.

A Good Fun Truck. — It's a good truck, but could do a lot better for gas mileage. A good amount of HP and torque; so it's pretty fast for a pickup. A great looking truck, very nice body lines and a mean Z71 stance.

This Is My Fourth Small Truck After Driving Seven Suburbans. I Am Happy With My Colorado — Build Quality - I have never had this truck back to the dealer with a problem. The first truck I have never had any build issues. Bravo - GM Appearance - Front view leaves a little to be desired, other than that I like the rest of the truck. Performance - It's a truck not a go fast firgure eight racer, it does very well in braking for my application. Cost of ownership - Fuel milage is not a big concern to me. I drive it 75 MPH on the freeway and get 20-21 MPG. Oil changes once a year with Amzoil. Easy keeper. Fun factor - fourwheeling in the snow and getting back into those hard to reach hunting places makes guy happy .

Chevy Colorado '08 — I absolutely loved this truck. It had the best performance out of any vehicle that I have ever driven. I've never needed it repaired so I don't know about costs but the mileage is really decent for a truck. I got it up to 26 once, with an estimated average of about 21.

Chevy Colorado, What A 5 Year Old Would Draw If You Asked For A Truck. By jasonh123
