The door panel "storage" is one of my top 4 disappointments in the Colorado/Canyon. The designer who came up with that should have to read this Forum every day for a year regarding these design failures.
Heck, I would give Chevy $300 right now to have door panel and center console storage similar to our 2015 Equinox. I hate the thought of having to cope with this that much! Make new door panels that we can buy and replace even if you redesign them to a better functioning future design.
Hey. . GM, these "little things need to be corrected PRONTO if you wish to maintain the popularity of this otherwise great vehicle. Ford and Toyota drove the Gen I Colorado into non existence and GM saw a gap and was fortunate this time. . . for now.
I just filled out the GM survey for my 2017 Colorado LT and highlighted the disappointing door panels, seats (should be 6-way adjustable), lack of driver grab handle, no HomeLink garage door opener option, and a few other things.
It isn't just the forward slanting cup/can holder. What happens if you put an mostly full coffee or soda pop cup in there with the usual small opening and hit the brakes to come to a stop? Coffee or pop all over.
And what are we to do with all those little chopped up nooks and crannies in the rest of the door panel? Our 2015 Chevy Equinox has some intelligent design for cabin storage from the door panels to a very nice map pocket on the passenger side center console side panel.
