The Chevy Colorado -- the best vehicle I have ever owned!
2004 Chevrolet Colorado
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!
