"I bought this truck used in 2007 with 54,000 miles on it as a sole vehicle for my family of 3 while my wife and I finished school. We have taken this truck to many different places and all kinds of roads and terrain throughout the west and it has handled it all very well with no problems. Our family has since grown to 5 people and the truck now has 177,000 miles on it and is still running great. I take this truck on small/narrow, rough mountain and desert roads fairly frequently as well as on snow and it does everything I need it to with no drama. I use it to go camping, hunting, fishing and haul my mountain bike to the trails as well as hauling dirt, rocks and other large loads and it does it all. I have moved twice with it and it has hauled a lot of our stuff including a good sized trailer with no issues. This truck has the 3.5L 5 cylinder engine and has gotten decent mileage over the years (18-20 mpg city/rural and 23 mpg highway @ 60 mph). I still get 20 mpg at 80 mph on the interstate. I have had some minor issues with the electrical system, Colorados are notorious for this I guess, all of which I have been able to fix myself thanks to the internet. Everything else has been awesome. All of the repairs that it has needed have all been pretty minor and I have been able to repair myself (U-joints, fuel pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, spark plugs). The only things I don't really like about it is the interior space particularly the leg room in the driver's seat. The seat is too low to the floor. But then again it's a small truck. Overall, this has been the best vehicle I have ever owned so far. It has been super reliable it has never let me down."

"I get 19 mpg with it with 99% city driving. The inside is pretty bare-bones with the LS models. Overall, good truck for people with no need for loads of power."

"Bought a 2005 Colorado Crew Cab 4X4 used in 2012. Not had any trouble with it since. I like the way the truck looks and drives. Some people warn of a head issue with the '04 - '06 Atlas i5 engines, but in reality this issue affected just a small number of the trucks that were sold. Truck is now 10 years old and still looks and drives like new . . . not to mention it's holding its value very well - still lists for more than I paid for it."
