2008 Chevrolet Colorado Reviews

Absolutely enjoy the truck. We are at 41,000 miles now. Great mileage! Enjoy the ride. We only had to take it back 1 time and they found dust on the brake pads. :) We couldn't be any happier with our choice of vehicle.

my truck will not start or try to start

Interior is disgusting, not comfortable at all chevy totally could have done better. I have a 2008 Maroon 4 door I5 Z71 4x2 which has been a fairly reliable truck compared to my Chevy s10. However, I have had the rear end replaced 3 times already and it is still leaking. Have had the radio replaced once and is still not working exactly right. ABS and parking brake lights come on for misc reasons. Am looking to trade it in for an Equinox in 2011, at least those look comfortable.

Bought my '08 Rado when it was already a year old. I had owned a Chevy S-10 and it was small small small. I didn't want another small truck and I didn't want a full size (had one of those too) truck, this 'Rado is the perfect mid-sized truck! I absolutely love this truck, it has that 'retro' looking front end...love the squareness of it...and the grill looks like it's full of headlights/lamps! Wouldn't trade this truck for anything, it's a KEEPER!
