Excellent base model truck
Small yet noticeable erratic jumping while the engine is at idle. Check engine light has not come on, and I haven't noticed any other performance issues.
So far, it's turned out to be a good truck. I upgraded to the Colorado because I was very satisfied with my previous Chevy S10 with 190,000 miles on it.
I find the interior of the Colorado to be very visually appealing and space efficient. The split bench seat allows for maximum leg room and rear seat storage. All the manual locks and window cranks operate smoothly. It's everything my S10 was, and made better.
I find the 2.8 4 cylinder engine to be perfectly suited for the 2WD reg cab Colorado. With the 5 speed manual, this truck is fun to drive and has enough pep for any situation. Gas mileage is pretty good, at about 25mpg.
A huge selling point for me was the amount of open space under the hood. Most of the engine components are easy to see, and taking things apart is much easier than most other cars. Given this is a domestic truck, it will break down more often. I recommend this vehicle for anyone who is mechanically savvy and wishes to do their own repairs/maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
