Great 4X4 by Leadfoot on 12/22/2007. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT1 Ext. Cab 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: After 6 weeks I still love this truck!I have the Z71, with I5, this thing has great power and torque.The best MPH I've gotten is 22.3 the worst is 18.8, not bad considering the lead foot I have. I put in 2.5" front leveling kit,spraylined the bed,wood trim dash,billet grille ,chrome alloy wheels and Leer 100XQ shell and get compliment all the time.
Cons: Ride is a little bouncie but then I lifted the front of the truck.
Overall review: I traded in my 05 Ford F150 4X4(best truck I ever owned) to get better mileage and wasn"t disappointed. I was going to get a Ranger or Tacoma but after driving all three and a friend that loved his Colorado, I made the wright choose.

Nice truck,...but! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/18/2012. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT1 Crew Cab 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Nice looking truck, Interior is comfortable and lots of room. I don't pull anything with it mostly hauling items and has always been good.
Cons: The I5 engine is nothing to brag about, if you are one of the lucky ones and don't get one with tensioner issues on the timeing chain, kudo's to you. The dealer at fisrt didn't know of the issue but General Motors did. I've owned the vehicle for 3 yrs and it's getting louder when starting cold. General Motors says it;s nothing to worry about,...uum I don 't think vehicles were meant to rattle a tensioners around for the next 15yrs, and I can't get them to correct it, and have one yr left on warranty. If you do online searches on colorado tensioner issues you;ll find lots of posts.
Overall review: Great truck for what I need, and does everything I want, but due to the cons issue I will go back to ford they treated me much better, never had a reason to contact corparate offices with them

A Great Mid-Sized Truck by Retired Used Vehicle Dealer from Florida on 12/09/2011. Trim: 2008 Chevrolet Colorado LT1 Crew Cab 2WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I have had my 2008 Colorado almost 3 years and have put 16000 miles on it. It is a loaded small pick up including i-5 engine,power sliding sunroof,heated leather bucket seats,power and lumbar both frt seats,upgraded radio,chrome wheels,black granite metallic paint, 5000 lbs gvwr,and 3.73 rear axle ratio. It has more than adequate power , is quiet, no vibrations up to 90mph that drives and handles like a very expensive luxury sedan. I have added a frame mounted tow hitch, bed rail protectors and darker tint on front door windows. My combined fuel mileage has been19-20 mpg with the best observed 22.6 @70-75 mph highway only. It is one of the best trucks I have ever owned.
Cons: I do not dislike anything about my truck. Fit,finish and fuel economy could be improved but are not objectionable.
Overall review: Great truck that drives as well as a cadillac.
