2012 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Colorado
Reliability is the most important thing about my colorado.
I like my 2012 Chevrolet colorado. I purchased it new and it has proven to be very reliable transportation for me as I have had no major issues a all with it. I don't get as good of gas mileage as I thought I would, however for a truck it is acceptable. I wanted a smaller truck and this model fits the bill perfectly and is surprisingly easy to handle. The body style itself is extremely pleasing to me, and I can honestly say I have not seen a better looking truck style out there. It is an extremely comfortable ride as well. I have driven this car to work 5 or 6 days a week consistently, as well as several out of state trips and I can say that it has always been more than reliable for me. Without a doubt, if given the opportunity to do it all over again, I would. I have never regretted my decision to go with the Chevrolet line of trucks.
If you change your own oil, you can only use synthetic motor oil.
What I like most is the fuel efficiency of the 4 cylinder engine. I also like the cab space for a compact truck. I moved from a full size truck with a v8 into the Colorado so I miss the power sometimes, but since I do not do any major hauling I smile at the fuel pumps more. I also like that regular maintenance items like oil changes, tires, and brake pads will be less expensive. I took a road trip from Tennessee to Montana in 2017 and the only real complaint was the power loss when climbing the big horn mountain ranges in Wyoming. I think the 4 speed transmission should have been a 5 speed for better gear options.
Beauty and reliable performance combined.
My 2012 Chevy Colorado has been very reliable. I love how it drives and rides. With over 1. 5 ton towing capacity it is quite a workhorse for it is size. It drives very well while towing, even in mountainous terrain. It is very peppy and gets great gas mileage for a truck. The cloth seats are very comfortable and are easy to clean with a damp cloth. I love the way it looks. There is not anything about it I do not like and I cannot imagine trading it in on anything else.
2012 Chevrolet Colorado drives smooth and sits well!
The vehicle is great, it drives really well. As far as comfortable riding, it holds 5 seats, I would say that only 4 average adults could fit comfortably but smaller people could hold all 5 I am sure. The truck holds about 17 gallons of gas that gives you about 300 miles to a tank roughly. For what I use it for it is great, not sure what anyone else would use it for but as an everyday vehicle it holds up well.
Chevy Colorado 4x4 has never let my family down
I love my 2012 Chevy Colorado. I live i n very rural and desolate area in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and the winters here are tough! My Colorado has never let me down when it came to getting me and my children to town when we needed things from town, during a snowstorm or ice storm. I feel like Chevy is a household name and they stand behind their products to make sure me and my family are safe
How to handle.this kind of car / truck...this is a big truck.
The only problem that i encounter here is always poop up engine heat or engine cold', I think just need to change the thermostat, other that everything is good, not putting you down in the road..the tires , the motor , machine and everything is.okay.. good service for everyday..especially when your working place is in the mountains or high places.
It has great gas mileage.
Great performance in drivability and dependability. It has room for all we need to travel with and that includes the dog. It has great gas mileage. I fill up once a week locally and I drive on average about 80 to 100 miles per day. On a 7 1/2 hour trip I fill up no more than twice one way. Comfortable on long trips and is very nice to drive.
Do not buy it if you are ever going to have a passenger in the back. I mean, ever!
I can load a lot in the truck bed which is great. It is a 2 door so has a small back seat which is the most uncomfortable thing I have ever sat in. My back hurt for days after. just because the back is small, doesn't mean that you should skimp on comfort. Truck are not cheap!
Truck buying 101. Truck has served me well.
Very reliable. Not as roomy as I would like as things in one's life changes. Be careful of the dealership you use to purchase and/or do repairs. Salesperson was very helpful but the finance guy was very hyper and made me uncomfortable so another person was brought in.
2012 Chevrolet Colorado truck.
My vehicle is reliable and comfortable with a good towing capacity. It is great for long road trips and gets very good gas mileage. The truck bed is long enough to handle most loads anyone would need to transport, while still allowing good towing capacity.
