Love It. — My baby truck has hnough power for what I need to do, I'm not hauling any big trailers or anything. Picks up pretty good for a 5 cylinder. Love the look of it, especially with the offset tires on it. Rough ride, but probably because I've got added leaf springs in the back and torsion bars cranked in the front. I get about 550 kms to the tank, pretty average for most 1/4 tons as far as I'm concerned. Fun to go out and play on the trails, I can keep up pretty good with the big boys : )

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Feels pretty big for a 1/4 ton, love the look of it, plus it's a Chev : )

Cons: Electric shift transfer case, rear seats are TINY

Great Vehicle And Good Times — I have had this vehicle for over 6 years now and I have over 350,000 kms on it. No major breakdowns or repairs to be done. Regular maintenance and up-keep is all that was needed. I am surprised that this vehicle does not have a spot of rust showing anywhere, even under carriage and frame, and for a vehicle traveling in Canada on very salty roads in winter, and living on the Sea where air even has salt in it. Great vehicle and if I needed to have another pick-up, I would by the same. Sold the vehicle to a friend of mine which shows that I do believe that there is still lots of good driving to be had with it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything was great on this truck.... no major problems over 350,000 kms and many more to go

Cons: The only thing I hate about this vehicle is the fact that I no longer need it and that I have to sell it.

Good Value — ZQ8 Sport-factory lowered suspension package makes it drive like a car rather than a truck. Respectable power for L5 auto with use of premium gas. G80 locking rear does well in snow, no need for 4x4. Shortbed has enough room to carry 4x8 sheets. Fold down rear seat convenient for shopping.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: ZQ8 Factory Lowered Suspension

Cons: Not many aftermarket performance parts available

2005 Chevy Colorado Ext. Cab 4x4 Z71, Big Chief —

I (28 yrs old) live on a farm in Sweden and I use the truck daily. My driving habits are small gravel roads and larger country roads, in some cases in poor condition, and limited city driving. The performance of the Colorado with the 3.5L engine gives the truck good acceleration and fair top speed. Passing cars is easy. My truck has ABS breaks and the truck halts on demand without problems on dry tarmac. The ABS breaks does the job on icy roads and stability is kept when breaking. When it comes to handling I would say it is fair upp to 100 km/h without any payload. Above that speed require an alert driver, unless you drive on an airstrip. The best handling is achived with 300 kg in the back. I noticed that the unused seatbelts rattles on passenger side on the low speed bumpy roads and the rear axle don't give much comfort there (emty truck, much better with load). The cab is fairly quiet and comfortable on larger roads. The sound from the tyres annoys me a bit in speeds above 90 km/h (tyres are threaded for tarmac). For offroad use, this model is ideal. Push a button for low gear and the truck stops for nothing, unless you woud get the idea to drive out in a swamp. The suspension has a great traveling distance and keeps the tyres in contact all the time. It is really extreme and I have never towed the truck. My truck is equiped with everyting but leather seats and the interior is appealing compared with Nissan, Isutzu, Mazda and Toyota trycks. The suicide doors come in handy when storing various stuff behind the driver/passenger seat. The sound system is very poor in my opinion. The stock CD-player is low quality and so are the speakers. I have to replace it all now after only 7500 km. The exterior is very appealing with sidesteps (bars), fender extenders, roll-top and a stainless steel grille guard with extra lights. The extended fenders does work and they have kept the paint intact (7500 km) on the sides of the truck. Gas mileage is very good concidering that the engine delivers 220 hp, it is a 4x4 Z71 and runs on gas. I get about 60 km on a tank of gas. Regarding maintainance, change oil, filters and sparkplugs. Thats all. The fun factor of this truck is high. It's light weight gives it good acceleration and I enjoy buring some rubber and power slides can be done in a controlled way on dry tarmac. Friends and new people I meet think that the truck looks cool and they are all impressed of acceleration (it is a truck). I would recommend anyone to buy this model if you intend to haul light weight goods/trailors or just use it for driving to work.

Pros: Looks cool and has fair gas milage

Cons: Road noise from tyres

Chevy Colorado — very good gas mileage, decent power, no trouble towing, lots of room. It has good visibility and looks great. Problems are it has cheap interior parts, although they are very durable. The rear suspension often sits down. Is very nice if you had a lift. Reccomend at least a 2 inch lift with bigger tires. I would reccomend this car for anyone who wants good gas mileage, with occasional light towin and offroading. Great highway truck

Pros: Price, gas milage, durabliity, room

Cons: Suspension, low ground clearance

Chev Colorado — It's a great truck that gets good gas mileage. For some reason mine is having a problem with squeaks right now. It can haul alot of gear, which is good for a paintballer. All In all it is not a very bad truck at all. You should get one! The Colorado is a very good truck, but it has some recalls on it.

Pros: Roomy interior, decent handling, good gas mileage.

Cons: Problems with squeaks and has some recalls on it.
