2005 Chevrolet Colorado 4 Cylinder from North America
There's a sucker born every minute, this time it was me
Where to begin? This truck is constantly in the shop.
Head gasket at just over 15000 miles.
5 factory stereos.
3 weather strips on the passenger door.
2 radio antennas.
2 accessory power outlets.
Interior fan switch.
Head light dimmer.
Ignition security system.
Front end alignment.
Window seals leak.
Door locks constantly jam.
The above list is only includes the items that have been fixed in the last year since I bought this overpriced waste of money.
Useless junk. I have never been so incredibly disappointed in any vehicle I have ever driven, and I have the distinct dissatisfaction of knowing that I have to make a payment on this thing every month.
I'm trading this money pit tomorrow when I pick up my new car. Just to give you an idea, I'm taking a $5500 loss on trade and that's less money than I have put into it since the warranty expired in April. 6 months, almost $6000 on top of the payments and gas.
This was my first, and last Chevrolet product. I can't even rely on it starting when I get into it to drive it, because the security system on the ignition keeps shorting out.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'd say this is a lemon. To have that much trouble from a new car isn't normal even for known junkers. They make laws for protection from this sort of luck. Plus you really shouldn't pass on such a problem. Lawyer up under the lemon law and you should get your money back. Also I must say it's a little off putting that you have a new car with no warranty. I not convinced.
This smells like a salvage car to me. Just guessing from all the electrical problems I'd guess water damage or a flood victim. Make sure you weren't hosed by the seller who sold you a salvage title.
"I'd say this is a lemon."
No, it's just typical GM junk. After years of seeing domestics fail with as little as 30,000 miles sometimes, you'd think domestic owners would start to let go of the belief that America makes good vehicles.
Yes, with all of the electrical problems, I would also say that this sounds like a flood vehicle. Some idiot drove it into a flooded underpass thinking they could make it, and trashed it. I think it was trashed when you got it, since it isn't that common for people to get rid of a vehicle that is only a couple of years old. They usually wait until their lease is up, or payments are done at 3-5 years. If you thought the dealer gave you an incredibly good deal --- too good to be true --- it was probably fished out of a swamp after Hurricane Katrina.
I disagree, I owned a 2003 Chevy Venture and it had electrical problems from day 1, and I bought the wretched thing new. I was stuck with it for 7 years, and I can't even begin to list all the electrical parts that were replaced. Don't even think you are going to have headlights or brake lights; I burned those like it was going out of style along with the bulb sockets. I wanted to drive the thing into a bridge from day 1.
