15 Used Pickup Trucks You Should Avoid At All Cost

None of these pickup trucks should be your first choice

Chevrolet Colorado

Years: 2004-2005, 2008, 2015

Being smaller than conventional half-ton truck, Chevy Colorado might seem like the best choice for everyone not in the need of a towing rig. it’s more efficient, less expensive, and easier to handle. Not everything is hunky dory with the Colorado, however.

First two model years (2004 and 2005) were plagued by numerous problems including AC heater that only works on high or not working at all, engine start failure and check engine light that’s constantly on, water leaking into the cab, rusted frame, etc. 2008 year model has had its share of similar issues, but there’s the addition of fried electrical system and faulty radiator which contributed to engine’s abnormal heating. Moreover, all of them were subject of 2004-2011 Colorado recall for faulty child seat and faulty brake light that could have lead to a potential crash. Finally, 2015 Chevy Colorado is experiencing numerous transmission problems including sluggish shifting or even failure to downshift properly. There’s the random engine stall issue too, so you might want to skip 2015 Colorado altogether.

About Nikola Potrebić

Although driving a piece of junk, Nikola is a true car enthusiast. Precious few things move him as muscle cars do – especially those from the bygone golden era. Which makes him wonder; why wasn’t he born a few decades earlier? Well, at least he’s been able to enjoy the likes of Pontiak Aztek, Fiat Multipla, and their “lovely” coevals this way – right? (sigh)
