    It is good truck. I am driving it know because my boss (i am working in this groupage Russia company now) adores all kind of Chevy. Nice to use in European weather. I have been driving it for 1 year and have nothing to complain.

    I'll throw my thoughts in here... I like the new colorado concept - I think we need more of the european small trucks (and euro/australian market anything, really - Holden Commodore/Pontiac G8, european fords, new Caprice/current Holden product, Toyota Hilux). If they make this concept, or the reality that comes from it, the north american production version, they will have a good little truck.

    That being said, the current colorado/canyon is a decent truck, and the new one looks promising, but I'm still a fan of full size trucks and SUVs that I can tow and haul more with.

    European cars are smaller and don't have US' cars charm) they use renaults even for international trucking services instead of taking fords which are obviously bigger and more comfortable than most "europeans"

    i purchased a 2005 colorado 4 door, 5cyl 2 wheel drive only draw back so far, i had to install air bags on the rear, due to serious sagging when towing ,installing the air bags was very easy to do firestone air bags are great they are a exact fit. i tow a pop up camper, when i weighed at a scale i am 8,500 this includes all camping gear full of fuel. the 5cyl engine does a great job towing i do downshift, when climbing hills and when going down hill fuel mileage 18 to 20 when loaded, average speed 55 to 60 loaded. i think this is a GREAT truck for the size, only trouble i have had was i needed to replace controler for doors and windows.

    I went to test drive one a while ago.... it was a piece of crap!
    when you closed the door, the whole body of the accepting doorjam moved... so if you got T-boned I think youd be dead
    the 5 cly had no balls at all... even with the stick shift
    there was no leg room in the truck, even for me... the skinny driver... the wheel-well was part of my floor
    and the pedals were the size of tic-tac boxes. I had to carefully and daintily select the pedal I wanted in my winter boots to not hit more than one....
    its a failure.
    you really deserved that bailout, GM
    Gas was $1.83 when Obama took office.....

    IMO, the Colorado and Canyon are some hella ugly trucks. Apparently a newly re-designed Colorado and Canyon are due in 2014.
