Average and small compared to what else is available, but completely capable with the right mindset.

Had the vehicle going onto 10 years, so very intimate about how it handles and I am very comfortable. Doesn't feel like you're driving the Titanic as when you're in the spacious cabs of trucks like F-150's or Silverados. I do not like having a short, 5' box, as most accessories are for longer boxes and its harder to fit much in terms of cargo. The stock radio had no input for an aux cable or bluetooth, which is disappointing. I dislike how many plastic parts are used throughout the truck, as they are the first to break down. Overall though I make my truck work like a full-size, it just always takes creative thinking to fit what I need in it. Never going to sell it if I can manage it.

Reliable vehicle, with some electrical issues.

Mechanically, my vehicle has been extremely reliable and comfortable! However, since the day I bought it brand new in 2008, I have had several electrical problems with it. I replace rear end light bulbs (turn signal, third brake light, lower brake lights) at least twice a year. My tire pressure sensors have never worked properly, even after replacing recalled parts for it. Other than these small inconveniences, I have been very satisfied with the Colorado.

This truck is really reliable as long as you keep up with the basic maintenance.

The only problems that I really have with this car are that with the child locks. The child locks on this truck have gotten stuck so many times and each time it gets worse to unlock them. I understand why child locks are necessary but it is ridiculous not being able to get them unlock. I do not even use the child locks and they automatically come. Pros include: pretty good mileage, has treated me well on all of my road trips.
