Five Used Trucks You Should Never Consider Buying

2004-2005 Chevrolet Colorado

Bigger than a small truck, smaller than a big truck; General Motors seemed to hit a design winner with the introduction of the 2004 Chevrolet Colorado. Buyers responded by purchasing over 100,000 of the trucks in both 2004 and 2005. Unfortunately high style did not translate into high quality. Consumers reported an unusually high number of complaints about the Colorado’s air conditioning system, brakes, electrical issues, and engine problems including misfire faults that plagued owners with constant check engine light illuminations. If the mid-sized pickup with a bowtie is your truck of choice, buy a later model Colorado after GM had an opportunity to work out the mechanical design flaws.

The Car scene is so diverse
Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota’s and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
