Default Finally saying goodbye!?

My Dad has decided that he may finally get a new truck. His *-10 is 11 years old now and starting to rust. As in my sig it has 150k miles on it. He thought maybe buy a new truck and give me the *-10. I wouldn't actually mind it but not my favorite. This is the truck we are looking at tell me what everyone thinks!!

I like the color thats for sure! And who can disagree with those miles.

First thing you will notice (if the S10 has a 4.3) is the loss of torque. My buddy has the large version and is fairly happy, but has been having boatloads of trouble trying to get his 6 disc changer radio fixed under warranty,

No its the 2.2 so it would be a major gain, but he decided that he probably wants 4wd. He has gotten stuck multiple times this year alone. So he will still consider this one but will look for one with 4wd. Any other opinions on Colorados would be very helpful! Thanks

I know a few people with the Colorado'* and they have had nothing but problems with them from day 1. If your dad is looking for a 4wd pickup, have him look into the Silverado'* seriously.
