    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

    Chevrolet Colorado — Peformance wise, it goes pretty quick for the 4 Cylinder model The quality care used by the people from Shreveport; you can tell they put their hearts into making the truck. Its a very fun truck to drive. It handles well around corners and everything and whenever i wanna have fun, it does what i want it to do!

    Pros: Looks, power, chick magnet

    Cons: Sheet metal dents easy, hard to keep clean

    Cons: traction control

    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.

    Awesome Z71 — I love my truck, it is large enough to do the work I need to do on the farm but without the horrible gas mileage. Good performance for the newly designed Inline 5 but not as much power as a V-8, of course. Nice looking truck that I love to drive!!!!!!!!

    Pros: the color and spray in bedliner

    Cons: back seats are too small and uncomfortable

    My Dad's Chevy That I Drive — Overall, I like it. It's not going to fall apart on you, it has an average acceleration, pretty good braking, below average handling, standard issue horsepower (?) is sufficient. Good for trips w/ passengers b/c of extended cab. Comfortable. Bed is not compromised that much by cab.

    Pros: Fairly economic for a pickup, never have had a mechanical problem

    Cons: Doesn't handle all that well, especially in 4WD

    I <3 My Truck — 5 cylinder packs alot of power for such a small engine.. 220 horses, it'll get up and go. Typical GM brake pad squeaking, but that's easily fixed.
