09 Colorado


New here and posting up about my 09 Colorado, recently purchased and wanting to know what I should be on the look out for. I had a ricer Scion tC before this and I was always proactive with maintenance on it and it definitely paid off, so I am looking to do the same with the Colorado. Since purchasing, I have replaced the battery and put some fresh meaty tires on it. I know some brands/models have key issues that always fail, and I am looking to see if the Colorado has anything like that.

I apologize if this subject has already been discussed and appreciate any and all help.

You picked a good model year Colorado. There were some issues with the valves on earlier model engines. Most all of the glitches were worked out by the time 2009 rolled around. 2009 models also had upgraded brakes.

Probably the most common problem with these trucks, old and new, is the HVAC blower wiring. Symptoms will be blower speed issues or blower inoperative. Let us know if you have any problems or questions.

This Forum addresses more of the 2nd Generation Colorados/Canyons than the 1st Generation. Check out 355nation.net That is where most of the 1st Generation guys hang out.
