    2005 Chevrolet Colorado - w/Z85 Standard/1SC 4x4 Crew Cab

    Pros: I like the look of the truck.

    Cons: Sub par front seats

    Advice: Buy the vehicle but expect a uncomfortable seat.

    My only problem with the Vehicle is the poor support with the front seats. There is little lateral support.

    2005 Chevrolet Colorado - Base w/Z85 Standard 4x4 Regular Cab

    Pros: Room

    Cons: Road vibration.

    Advice: Drive it more than a few miles before making a decisiion to buy

    Z85 reg cab 4X4 LS: Vibration @ road speed not corrected after replacing 6 tires. Passenger seat rattles even after replacement. Road shock through body and steering is terrible. 3500 I-5 engine does NOT have the power of a 6, but mileage is decent @ 24.9/gal. Dark primer under yellow paint shows ALL paint chips. Drain holes in the bed are in poor location, allowing water to stand. Brake and clutch pedals are too small and close together. Road/wind noise are objectionable. Leg room is great. Arm rests are hard.

    2005 Chevrolet Colorado - w/Z71 Off-Road/1SE 4x2 Crew Cab

    Pros: more for my buying dollar than the competition

    Cons: needed waranty repair at just 5,000 miles

    Advice: good family 'car' with light hauling capability

    Nice techie features, but lacks some basics such as an ashtray (I'm a non-smoker) and there are not enough storage cubbies. Drives well and has a comfortable ride - much quieter than I expected for a truck. I got the crew cab for hauling wife and 3 kids and bulk landscaping materials. Does the job as intended. Great gas mileage. No longbed option. A/C evaporater core needed replacing at just 5,000 miles - covered by warranty, but inconvenient.

    2005 Chevrolet Colorado - LS w/Z85 Standard 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: The I-5 coupled with the 4 speed automatic.

    Cons: Extremely uncomfortable front seat. Designer needs to be immediately fired !!!!!!

    Advice: Be sure you can tolerate the seats. They don't grow on you in time.

    Outstanding performance for my uses. Handles well on the interstate and two lane paved roads. Has great punch when you need to pass and I love the sound of the engine accelerating.I have the I-5 with 4 speed automatic. Looks great inside and out. Rides well if you can tolerate the seats. No foot support in the very deep passenger footwell.

    2005 Chevrolet Colorado - LS w/Z85 Standard 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: Hard to pick but if I have to I'd say the ride and the looks

    Cons: The payments

    Advice: Buy one you won't be sorry

    I've only had this truck a few days but I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!We traded a 2003 Mazda B2300 even though we had negative equity. We had to have it. We purchased ours from Pinegar Chevrolet in Republic Mo. Great place, helpful, low pressure sales technique, great overall experience. My suggestion if you want one buy from them. The truck is a dream come true. Lots of power, roomy, great sound system, very smooth ride and lots of style. GORGEOUS !!!
