2009 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #3

May 152016

Colorado LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


I will never buy another Chevy car or truck because this problem happened at about 50000 miles and again at 85000. It was repaired at a Chevy dealer and the new parts were junk just like the original parts. I have had Chevy trucks and cars, all bought new but there will not be any more.

I have had new Ford trucks and conversions vans and never had problems that the company didn't own up to and fix free . I am going to buy a new truck in the next 2 months and it sure as hell will not be a Chevy. The Chevy dealer had the nerve to tell me that my extended warranty would not cover all of the diagnostics so I had to pay out of my pocket 50 extra dollars plus the 100 deductible to get it repaired. The dealer already knew what was wrong and just jabbed me for an extra 50. Your dealers and your vehicles are second class. It's no wonder Ford has outsold you for the last 40 years.

problem #2

Colorado Es Limited 3.7L 5 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

Lost all power to the blower on my 2009 Colorado. After changing several other items on it , found on line that the Wiring harness could be bad. I purchased one ON Line for around $50 and it worked for about 1 month. I noticed smoke coming out from under the Glove Compartment and the Blower quit working again. I bought another harness and installed it. The connections are very loose and they wiggle enough so that they get Hot and burn out the pins. I put a wire tie on the connector to hold it from wiggling around and have not had any issue with it again. For Now?

Colorado LT 5 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

Blower Motor stopped working during the hottest part of the summer...replaced fuse, to no avail...

sometimes it will suddenly but briefly begin working...

Went online and discovered so many complaints about this,

that I was automatically directed to a GM Parts page, but yet there has not been a recall...WTF?????
