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!

Solid hauling and gas mileage for small pickup

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Base w/Z85 Standard

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 looking, reliable Chevy pick-up.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

My vehicle is very nice and very reliable. It is comfortable and has great features. I only wish it was an king cab instead as I can only drive with one person. Just a choice. Great truck! It is easy to maintain and I have never had a major repair b even though it is older. It is nice to be able to haul things and the truck looks nice and new even as old as it is.

Great vehicle for a single person or couple.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

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.

- Cassandra P

Can plow through anything.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

I have had my Colorado since I was 15 and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Yes it has had some issues but it has never ever left me on the side of the road. I drive to dc every weekend because my boyfriend is stationed there and it has never broke down and I trust it. The truck runs smoothly and if you take care of the vehicle it will take care of you.

2004 Chevy Colorado - reliable truck.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

The vehicle has been very reliable. No major mechanical issues. The fuel pump had to be replaced, but other than that just routine maintenance. One other issue was a leak around the 3rd brake light, which caused water to get into the cab area. Once we figured out that is where the water was coming from it only cost about $150 to get it replaced.

- Kim U

My Chevy Colorado good and bad.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My Colorado has wiring problems and sometimes it goes into low power mode. It is not a very comfortable vehicle. However it does get fairly good gas mileage which is good. It has no special features it is just a basic pickup. I guess it does fairly well considering that it is fourteen years old and has almost 200, 000 miles on it.

- Wanda M

Great vehicle for a single person or couple.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

With regular maintenance, it has been a great 2nd vehicle. When our family vehicle was damaged, it needed a little extra maintenance from sitting for a year. My only complaint would be that the gas cap sometimes does not close properly, no matter how many times you turn it. Lightbulbs are fairly easy to change. Decent gas mileage.

- Cassandra P

This vehicle is comfortable and reliable!

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

The vehicle drives so smoothly! The seats are uncomfortable if you have the leather interior but the overall feel of the vehicle is great. We love how easy it is to get parts replaced if needed although they can be expensive. We would recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs a reliable ride and a little extra cash to spend.

- Emily C

Great truck that lasts a long time

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My Chevrolet Colorado has been a great truck. It is comfortable, with leather seats that auto adjust and are heated for cold winter mornings. It has been reliable and only started having some maintenance and repair issues once the miles added up since it has over 156,000 miles now. But it still rides great and looks great.

- John C

Small Vehicle, Lots of Power

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

For a mid size truck it really does perform. It doesn't look like much but has more than plenty of power for towing or hauling whatever you need. It has four wheel drive for that extra kick of power. It comes equipped with a cd stereo, cruise control power locks and windows. The only downside is that it only gets 17 mpg.

- Ray F

The Chevrolet Colorado and why you should buy one.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

It is very reliable has great space for hauling things around town whether that be your family or things for projects. The only problem we have had was with it jumping time and that cost quite a bit to fix and depending on how much you paid for the truck it might not be worth fixing and you might have to buy a new one.

- Alexander H

The inside of it, the leather it's so good and the seats also

2004 Chevrolet Colorado LS ZQ8

I love my vehicle it's nice I like to take it out to ride and go out, but I mostly use it for fishing and other thing I do. But not only I love trucks I love cars it my fav I like to ride on fast cars and go race in the track with it but it all it is and not only cars and trucks are good but SUV too

- Sergio G

Chevy Colorado review about the specs and how it feels to a normal consumer.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

Very reliable and comfortable. Saves gas and is really affordable. The only issue I have is that when buying parts, most are expensive and complicated to install. Of course, this issue only applies to those who do things themselves. My vehicle has 2 seats only but it is really comfortable and roomy.

- Jorge R

Good at going up hills and down dirt roads. Great for an outdoors person.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

It is a great truck it just has problems starting and with the ac. It does 250, 000 miles plus on it, so it runs very well for its age and for the mileage on it. Overall performance is great not very comfortable but it gets me from point A to point B then again it is older and has many miles on it.

- Dawson C

I take care of it and it takes care of me.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

I love my "hot rod truck". I get many compliments about how nice it looks and they cannot believe it is 14 years old. It provides many opportunities, off-road z71 - 4x4, hauling things, pulling trailer, pleasure to ride in and drive. I wish it got better gas mileage but I can live with it.

- Willis H

It rides great and gets decent gas mileage,considering it is 14 years old.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

We love our truck. It gets pretty good gas mileage for the age of the truck. It rides very smoothly and has very comfortable seating. We have a crew cab, 4 wheel drive. there is plenty of room in the back seats for our adult children. Our elderly parents have no trouble getting in or out.

- Lori E

Great Chevrolet truck review.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

The truck drives fairly well. Handles very well. Comfortable seats. It has had very few mechanical issues in the last several years. Only the spark plugs have had to be replaced. Other than that, only the regular oil change is needed. Engine and transmission have held out very well.

- Tyler S

Once this model hits 100,000 miles expect a lot of issues.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

The truck is the right size for our needs. It has been good on gas mileage and has been fairly low maintenance up until just recently. It seems like we are now having several problems that others have experienced with the same make and model at the mileage milestone we are at now.

- Janet L

04 Colorado, 150,000 miles

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71

The truck is great but the coils go bad very easily. The suspension is still in tack and it is very durable. The ABS system can be touchy though. It is good on gas and I love the size of it. The ac and heat also work wonderfully, though sometimes it can smell a bit musty.

- Sarah T

I have a friend who has similar problem out of his Chevy Colorado.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Base w/Z85 Standard

2004 Chevy Colorado great running vehicle with 194000 miles. Number 1 problem is the throttle, every few days it takes about 5 minutes to start. Somewhat inconvenience, you never know when it's going to Not start on time. Watch where you park. Other than that great truck.

- Charles W

Ups and downs of Chevy Colorado.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My Chevy Colorado gives a lot of problems such as a short in the wiring which affects the dash lights and the heater/ac fan. It is very good on gas mileage however although it has a lots of miles on it. Sometimes it goes into low power mode and will only go around 20mph.

- Wanda M

Somewhat okay but no leg room!

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

I am somewhat happy with my vehicle but it is still a gas guzzler but on the other hand it is comfortable to drive. I do not like the back seat at all!! There is no leg room at all unless you pull the driver's seat forward and then the driver has no leg room!

- Donna M

Great truck for light duty moving. Awesome for an in-town vehicle.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

Decent gas mileage. Gas cap does not always stay on correctly, or close correctly. Nice vehicle for a couple or single person. With regular maintenance, it is been pretty reliable. It sat for over a year, at one point, and needed minimal extra maintenance.

- Cassandra P

Needed transportation for daily rounds.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

It is used as a work vehicle primarily but, also a mode of transportation. It is experiencing some mechanical problems but, no major ones. The cloth interior is somewhat deteriorating. All and all the vehicle is in good shape. A low maintenance vehicle.

- Spencer B

It is very dependable. Chevy is a trusted brand that is worth the purchase price.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

I like the Chevy brand because it is the most dependable. Chevy vehicles are also easy to work on when it comes to maintenance. The interior of my truck has a lot of space and it is easy for me to get in and out. Also, it gets really good gas mileage.

- John D

Everyone should know how long it lasted - 4 years and still going.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My vehicle is still reliable after 14 years! However, it's starting to show signs of age. The electrical systems gets wonky when it rains. The door gaskets are getting leaky. Sigh. Will have to trade old faithful in for a new vehicle soon.

- Mary S

Be wary of buying a first model year vehicle as mine has many electrical issues.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

I absolutely love my truck. The only thing is, I wish I would not have bought a first model year vehicle, because it does have a lot of electrical issues. Other than that, it has been very dependable and has made me very happy!

- Katherine S

these issues as stated it starts fine runs good looks good

- alex h

We should all be environment conscious and this hybrid is easy to own.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My vehicle is 4 doors and it is a truck. Plenty of room and drives great. For me a truck is more better than a car. It is better for hauling or off road trips.
