2006 Chevrolet Colorado WT Reg Cab (Work Truck) 2.8 ltr. Engine from North America
Staying basic and simple, this truck should do it for you
Totally reliable. No problems.
If your looking for a basic truck Chevy has it. With the 2.8 ltr engine & a 5 speed manual transmission, this trucks moves very nicely. The seats are comfortable & there is plenty of leg room.
The 2.8 four banger has nice pickup & accelerates well at highway speeds. The cruise control is a nice option for us commuters. Mileage thus far has been at 26 mpg & combined. The ride is comfortable, but, remember, this is A SMALL TRUCK. There is engine noise, wind noise, some rattles, but, again it's a work truck. The ABS brakes work well & the 5 speed manual shifts smoothly. Heating is very good after it warms up. The equipped AM/FM radio... is well a radio & that's fine for me. This model is basic & simple, like pickup trucks use to be. I'm pleased!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Totally reliable? You have only put about 500 miles on the truck! I'd like to see your review after at least 10,000 miles.

My 2006 Chevy Colorado is just shy of 40,000 miles. Maintaining 26+ MPG, returned to the dealer once to replace the fuel filler hose & fuel cap. Hauled 1000 lbs of wood pellets in the back with no issues.
Truck runs great on 87 octane fuel, has thus far been 100% reliable. The four cylinder seems flawless, yet have heard the the 5 cylinder, especially the early models having head & valve issues.
