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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel, comfortable, affordable  

Cons: Short Bed

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: can tow with it

Cons: not much space

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: power, mileage, dependable

Cons: small back seat

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.)

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

Cons: Bed could be a bit longer.

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.

Pros: price

Cons: performance

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Exterior styling
Good gas mileage with 2.8l

Cons: Interior is extremely cheap
Lacks power

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: averaging 23MPG mostly city. Super quiet cab and very easy to drive.

Cons: no keyhole on passenger side door

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

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of looks and it handles well for a truck.

Cons: Awful ride quality and build quality.
