The Chevy Colorado -- the best vehicle I have ever owned!

I wanted a small pickup and I fell in love with the Chevy Colorado the first time I saw one. I liked how it looked just like the larger trucks, just a smaller version. It turned out to really fit my needs. I wanted a manual transmission and was delighted that I could get one. Even with a smaller engine, it moves right along and I find it fun to drive. And it is carried every load I have put in the bed easily. It is nearly 15 years old now and the only real problems it is had is some strange electrical issues. Sometimes I lose all my dash lights, but I have found that if I just lay on the horn, everything seems to reset and comes right back. Of course, after 15 years, I am beginning to see a little wear and tear on the interior which I would expect. The headlights got a little cloudy and I have since replaced those. Other than that it has been an easy keeper, very reliable, comfortable to drive, great on gas (it is a 4-cylinder engine). I really love this truck and would recommend it for anyone looking for a smaller truck. Would like to get a newer truck, and it will definitely be another Colorado! I would get the extended cab through; the regular cab is a little small especially when grocery shopping. And my current truck is white, I would opt for a red one! I really cannot say enough about how happy I have been with my Chevy Colorado!

Solid hauling and gas mileage for small pickup

My model is only a 4 cylinder base model. It has no pep and is kind of loud for such a small engine. The truck bed is a decent size though for length. Gas mileage is good, but it is a small pick up. There�s a center seat but it has a cup holder at the front of it and if anyone sits in very much the cup holder will break. Speakers went pretty quick on the truck too and I don't listen to music very loud in this vehicle. Transmission is solid though!

Great vehicle for a single person or couple.

With regular maintenance, it is been a great 2nd vehicle. When our main vehicle was damaged, it required a little extra maintenance from sitting for a year. Otherwise, it is a great vehicle. Gas mileage is decent. My only complaint would be the gas cap. Sometimes it does not close properly, no matter how many times you turn it. Changing light bulbs is fairly easy.
