2012 Chevrolet Colorado
Problems & Complaints
CarComplaints.com Notes: The Colorado, and it's GMC counterpart the Canyon, suffers from a severe lack of acceleration. Nothing says "serious truck owner" like having a kid on a tricycle pass you while going uphill. Couple that with poor side crash test ratings from the IIHS and you've got a vehicle worth passing on.
