Jeff from 'Bama

Hey, my name is Jeff and I'm in the Montgomery area. My truck is an '07 CC, 2wd Z71 with 150k+ miles on it. I'm the second owner, bought it with about 20k on it and my previous job had us use our personal vehicles for work racking up 130k in the process with very little reimbursement for the wear and tear. In the last year I was using my truck for work I had the power steering pump replaced 3 times. The company I now work for has company vehicles, and they're rapidly changing the fleet over to the current generation Colorado.

In the time I've had the 07, besides the abobe mentioned PS issues, I've had the transmission fully rebuilt (299 miles left on the extended warranty when it blew). Hit a deer, had the battery replaced twice. Water pump and t-stat replaced, spark plugs replaced and a few other things too besides the monthly oil changes due to the high miles I would put on it most months.

I have a few outstanding issues such as the TPMS sensors needing replacement, a check engine light, intermittent seatbelt chime, a few blown bulbs in the interior, and intermittent issues with the light switch.

All that sounds normal to me. The last taco I owned had more problems than you had with this one.
