I was thinking of purchasing the colorado or canyon to pull behind my motorhome. Wondering if you had any recommendations.

I've been very happy pulling my 04 Colorado Crewcab Z71 4 X 4. I have about 28K on the speedo and another 6 to 8 K pulling in which the miles aren't recorded since the engine is off. One thing I really like from the old days is they did away with the worthless locking steering column that never slowed the crooks down at all. Now put it in neutral, the tranny in park (auto) turn off the key, lock the doors and put the keys in my pocket. It has never missed a beat and has been very relieable. Remember the only ones that hang here are mostly people who have had problems and most customers are very happy with their purchase.

Hey I've found some TSB's listing the same symptoms when shifting into 4 lo but there is no technical description of the problem. Does anyone know the cause of this "clunk" and if so is it a serious problem? From the frequency of this problem in various other forums it sounds somewhat common.

I have a 2007 Yukon xl 3/4 ton with 4x4. My owner's manual advises that a loud "clunk" noise is normal when going in or out of 4 lo.

I have an 07 Colorado 4x4 that has 62,000 miles on it. First the tire speed sensor went on the drivers side. The sensor and also the hub needed to be replaced. Right after that was done I was out on a lake and noticed my 4 wheel drive wasn't engaged. Tried 4 high and low and neither worked. 4 low did give the big clunk though. Took it into the shop tonight and found out part of the axle rod snapped. Not sure how, even the mechanic said "No offense, but your truck doesn't have the power to snap that shaft". He is thinking it was a defect that was already there. The piece is 1 1/4" solid steel stock. The good thing is it is a warranty repair.

I got rid of my 07 Z 71 4x4 a year ago.It was the absolute worst vehicle I have ever owned....bar none.I'm 58 years old and I usually buy a new 4x4 every 3 or 4 years.With the colorado,1 year was enough.Brakes would lock up,battery would die about once a week,and when it rained,it had puddles inside on both driver and passenger sides.It would go into 4 hi while going down the hwy at 65mph.I traded it in on a new Wrangler JK.The chevy colorado is the epitome of junk.I feel bad for whoever owns one.

#21 of 40 Chevy Colorado 4x4 problems
Aug 19, 2010 (6:42 pm)
I have been having 4x4 problems with my truck since last winter.I have had it to the dealership many times now.Been told encoder motor needed to be reprogrammed at first.second time the encoder motor had went altogether and had just had this replaced recently under warranty.Sure enough it happened again.i was at a sandy beach and had to use my 4x4 to get moving and serv 4wd light comes on in the dash and 4x4 lights go out to switch in and out.I noticed when starting the truck they flash for a second so i tried hitting the button to get back to 2wd and it worked but i have no idea what else can be causing my 4x4 to be having so many problems.dealer tried selling me a new pcm last time i was there which isnt under warranty for $950 plus tax and labor.I figured if it was my pcm going i would have other issues though and not just my 4x4.transmission and everything is good never have any problems with that and this is the only 4x4 issue i ever had since i bought the truck 2 years ago.Any help would be appreciated.dealership is useless

Sell the car men, I have so many problems with this truck (I got a Colorado 4x4 2006, only 34K miles) that I'm just tired, and the worst thing is Chevy Dealer Techs don't have a clue what's going on for every issue. Why, if they have so many issues with cars just make a RECALLS or extend warranties.
I Know Nissan already extend warranties for the new transmission CVT. Why Chevy don't ???? American Revolution???
