Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Chevrolet Colorado?
Ours is an 4WD extended cab work truck with 3.7 engine and auto transmission.
This truck has loads of leg room as I'm 6'4" tall and the Colorado's leg room sold me.
I pull an aluminum trailer with two 500 lb. 4 wheelers and the Colorado does this easily.
We have already gotten 23 mpg which I consider good.
The 3.7 liter engine will get you to highway speed easily when merging on the on ramps.
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Chevrolet Colorado?
Somewhat noisy in the cab, and the seats could use a bit more padding, but the seat angle is comfortable.
I'm not real pleased with GM and the financial problems and THAT alone would keep me from buying again though I like the Colorado.
The location of the oil filter just above the cross member leaves oil spilling all over the area and necessitates the removal of the skid plate when changing oil to get at the filter and to clean the mess.
2008 Chevrolet Colorado Review:
I have not had any of the problems I have read about with the Colorado/Canyon trucks. I'm pleased with the generous leg room, but would like a telescoping steering column.
The days of having a truck that gets 14-18mpg is over for me and the increased gas mileage is appreciated.
All in all this is a fairly nice truck for less money than the others I looked at. (Tacoma, Ranger, Dakota)
