#66 of 117 Chevrolet service department
Nov 04, 2008 (6:24 am)
I have a 2006 Colorado, with 55000 km. Not only do I have paint issues, I have replaced my head light bulbs twice, my licience plate blubs, and my brake light bulbs! Obviously there is a grounding issue. Now the emergency brake sticks on when the release is pulled. I took it in to the dealership where I bought it, (Paul Sadlon Motors-Barrie,Ontario,Canada) and the service department won't even look at it without charging me an arm and a leg.
With all the issues that these trucks are having and the shitty service that you will recieve at the dealership I would not recomend that anyone buy a Chevrolet. This dealership has left a very bad taste in my mouth, and this will be the last Chev that I will ever buy!

The S10 was a far more reliable truck. As for the parking brake, try some WD-40 on the release mechanism under the dash. Good luck.

That truck should get a lot better mileage. I've got a 2000 S10 with the old-tech OHV 4 cylinder engine. It's a regular cab, automatic and I have a truck cap on the bed. I bought it in Dec. 2007 for $6,600 (taxes, etc. all included) and it had 52K miles. I consistently get 20-22 MPG around town and 25 MPG on the highway. It now has 64K miles. You should go to another dealership. Perhaps, they can help. Good luck.

i bought a 04 z71 2wd colorado about six months ago, overall i love it, i just had the cylinder head replaced under recall, it only took the dealership two days and it was done. the truck has 62000 miles on it., and runs great
the main things i dont like are the gas mileage 17-19 mpg, and the the body panels seem thin and flimsy, im not rough with my truck at all,but it seems everytime i turn around i find a new dent or ding on the truck, i used to have a 2000 silverado and you could beat it to death and no dents. also the silverado had the 5.3 v8 and got almost as good mpg,....around 16-18mpg. im thinking of selling the colorado and buying another silverado.
#75 of 117 Block heater on 07 Colorado
Mar 13, 2009 (5:19 pm)
Does anyone in here know why the block heater cord on my 07 Colorado is temperature controlled. I live in Canada and I'm not liking the idea that it won't start to heat my engine till the temperature drops below -18C or 0F. I would like to put on a Espar heater but I don't know if it will negatively effect my engine. I have heard horror stories about people plugging in Trailblazer SS trucks, I don't want the same thing.
Any one have any thoughts?
