This vehicle is known to set false trouble codes, which causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. To resolve the problem, the PCM needs to be re-flashed, which is covered under the vehicle's emission warranty.

Drive Train -- Verified

4WD ModelsNoise from the transfer case could indicate excessive play in the transfer case. Dealers will replace or repair the unit under warranty if the vehicle is under 36,000 miles.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the rear window defroster stops working, it is likely due to a controller problem. It has been reported that once the controller is replaced, the problem is resolved.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

On some models, once the AC has been turned on, a foul smell may come from the vents. Spraying a little disinfectant in the vents takes care of this problem.

General Motors is recalling certain 2004–2011 Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Isuzu regular and extended cab models without a rear seat and equipped with a 60/40 front bench split seat for failing to comply with federal safety standards on child restraint anchorage systems. The top tether anchor for the front center seat is not accessible and the manual provides no instruction on its use. In order to correct the problem, dealers will cut a hole in the back panel trim cover to allow access to the top tether anchor and will provide supplemental instructions on the use of the top tether.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

General Motors is recalling various 2004–2009 models in twelve Southern and Southwestern states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands due to contamination in the brake lamp switch, which may cause the brake lamps to fail or stay on continuously.
