2008 Colorado- Great midsize truck for hauling stuff!

Problems- The electrical seems to be getting faulty in the last few years. The lights on the inside of the vehicle don't always come on when you open the door and the turn signal does not always work. Performance- The truck works great and I can always get up to highway speeds easily without having to slam the gas pedal down. Reliability- My truck has been very reliable when the weather is above 20. When it gets colder than that, it has a hard time starting and staying running. I went into 'limp mode' a few times last winter and had to replace the thermometer. I've also had it not start on opening day deer season one time too- made me late to the stand. Comfort- Very comfortable front seats. Could not tell you how comfortable the back seats are, because I never sit there. Features- I feel like it has everything a 2008 vehicle should have. Some people who ride in my truck complain about the lack of an aux cord or the non-power seats, but I do not care about that stuff. It's a truck, not a luxury car.

Chevrolet Colorado- the good, the bad, and the bumpy.

The Chevrolet Colorado standard cab pickup truck is a smaller sized truck in comparison to most trucks and therefore it is easy for me to handle. I will say however that unfortunately the Chevrolet Colorado standard cab pickup truck is the absolute furthest thing from a smooth ride. I mean you could be driving down a perfectly paved straight away highway and you will still be in the cab bumping all around. Thanks to would hands down be my biggest complaint.

A good, but not great small truck.

A decent small truck, but not a great one, which would have been the earlier s-10 model. Fair gas mileage for a 4WD. Sheet metal is too thin. My dad's old s-10 and the new Colorado sat out in the same hail storm. 1k damage to Colorado zero dollars to the s-10. Not a lot of room inside, I should have gotten the extended cab. Fairly snappy for a four cylinder.
