2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT 4 cylinder from North America
Good mechanics, crappy electrics
This truck has been an electrical nightmare.
I've replaced the brake light switch, throttle position sensor (integrated into the throttle body - $200), canister purge valve and solenoid.
The lights seemed to run very "hot" - when I replaced my brake lights, they had actually singed the socket a little. Same with the license place lights - they MELTED the socket to the bulb. Pain to replace!
The cruise control occasionally didn't set, but replacing the brake light switch seemed to fix that.
My only other complaint is the weatherstripping around the doors comes undone easily, but glue is cheap. Oh, and the storage things under the rear seats - the latches break if you look at them wrong.
Mechanically, a very good solid truck, but the 4-cylinder is a bit underpowered. All the electrical/sensor stuff is another matter. I think the check engine light has been on more than it has been off - good truck if you don't live in an emissions-inspecting state.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
