I guess I'm just pissed because they tried to make me feel like I don't know how to drive or something.I did catch the service manager try to cover up our test ride,he put the vehicle in 4 wheel low,and right before our eyes,it went back to 4 high.I said "thats interesting",he said nothing.I've got a 5 year,100K mile driveline warranty,so I shouldn't care too much.I'm just waiting for a half ton diesel pickup anyways.

they can be a real pain getting into 4L so I'm not surprised. I have found if every so often you put it in 4L it helps keep everything working right. Kind of like the old saying, If you don't use it you will lose it.

That makes sense.I've had my truck since Jan of this year,and I just have 2600 miles on it.It will probably take 3 years to break it in,LOL.By then,I'll have the diesel.
#11 of 40 Squeak in the right front end of 2007 Colorado z71 4x4

I have owned a 2007 4x4 z71 colorado for 6 months now and the only promblems i have is there is a squeak coming from the drivers side around the dash area. i have checked everthing under the dash to see if anything was loose but there wasn't. Next when i put the truck into neutral and press the 4 low button and it goes into 4 low it sounds like the drive shaft is going to rip out along with a jerk in the drive shaft. It also happens going back into 2 high. Anyone experiencing the same promblem.

it does make a lot of noise. I tow mine behind the motorhome and get the big clunk when I put it back into 2 wheeldrive on my 04 so I think you are ok.

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.
