Pros: What do you like about your 2006 Chevrolet Colorado?
Great truck. I love the crew cab as it works great both as a passenger vehicle as well as a truck.
Great 4WD performance, just push a button on the dash it it kicks in.
I put 31X10.50R15 tires on my truck, which are larger than stock, and didn't have any problems at all getting through deep snow in 4WD.
Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Chevrolet Colorado?
Some components are easy to break, like the seat lever on the driver's side, the parking brake release handle, etc.
Poor rearward visibility with the crew cab, have to be extra careful backing up.
2006 Chevrolet Colorado Review:
This is a great truck and I love it a lot.
However, it does have an issue which most people probably will never notice. I have a VHF radio in my truck as well as a scanner, and the truck emits interference in the form of a buzzing tone which drifts all over the VHF band and is on more than one frequency at a time. It wouldn't be a problem if it stayed on one frequency, or even two frequencies if it didn't move, but since it drifts around it's always locking up my scanner and occasionally interfering with the 2-way radio. I tracked the source down to the door locks, and I suspect it's a spurious signal being emitted by the door fob receiver in the truck.
My truck also developed a fuel leak in the line on top of the tank. Am in the process of fixing it now.
