My 05 colorado is a lot of fun to drive, quad cab with the zq8 sport package on it, lowered with 50 series tires, sunroof, all options. Has the Atlas inline 5 in it, 3.5l. It's a kick but it's a cali truck - useless in the winter in WA state. I cover it in the winter and it sits.

the list of *known issues* on this thing is crazy and I've experienced them all. Back window leak from faulty sealant, front windshield leak from faulty sealant, sunroof leak, Random misfires and premature head failure due to soft valve seats. The little pcb with resistors for controlling the heater motor is not reliable, I've traced the ground to the frame and i'm on my second controller. If this one goes I'm going to fire up my soldering iron and repair it myself and beef it up, I can't think of anything else to solve the issue. The part is just crap I think.

All this shit happened between 110k - 120k miles. I'm at 136k now and I finally have it running right and it feels solid.
