2005 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

Colorado 5-cyl

About 1 yr. And 1 month after I bought a Chevy Colorado, the thing shut off on me. The first time it left me on the side of I-55 and did not want to start. It did though, but the engine light was on, it soon went off. The dealer reprogrammed the computer. It has shut off on me 4 more times. The dealer will not fix the truck B/C it is not storing "codes". also, the traction control on the truck seems to engadge itself at the oddest of times when there is really no tire slippage and this has me sputtering and jumping while I'm trying to drive in traffic. At first start up, the truck has always made this rattling ping noise out of the muffler. Every time I step out of the truck, I shocks me, I beleive due to the nylon in the fabric seats. The turn signal will only "tick tock" when it wants to. The hood on the truck will "bow" or "bubble" in and out while driving, usually on the inerstate when there is some little wind blowing outside. The alarm on the truck has gone crazy on me a few times. I can unlock the door, it will go off but the radio inside the truck will be playing. If I were to cranck the truck up, turn the engine off, get out, and lock the door, the alarm will be going off about five minutes later. This cycle will keep going on until I reset the computer by pushing the gas pedal three times. All the dealer and GM wants to offer me is an extended warrenty, which the warrenty I have now is doing me absolutely no justice, I refused it. They told me that they cannot work on the truck B/C they cannot duplicate the problems at which they drove it twice, and the computer is not storing codes. This problem seems to be compleately spurratic and unpredictable. I have invested alot of money into this truck and still owe on it. I refuse to be forced to pay for and drive a hazzard.
