Colorado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200 miles
Less than a week after I purchased the 2004 GM Colorado pickup truck the tailgate open on the expressway and the cabinet I was hauling fell off the truck into the road causing an accident. I was sure the door was shut securely but somehow it just opened up.
