2012 Chevrolet Colorado Expert Review
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.
