I drive a 2006 Colorado CrewCab 2wd. I bought it a year ago from someone who drove frequently between Wilmington and Jacksonville, NC. However as of now it only has 48500 miles. After returning from a trip back in August2009, my stereo didn't work. It had rained really bad a few days prior to returning, and heading back home the stench of mildew was overwhelming. After months of replacing door gaskets and vaccuming out 2 gallons of water each time it rained, i finally called a window replacement place and they told me the water was coming in from the tailight on the back cab of the truck. it was a $60 fix, but no rain has leaked since. They told me this was common for this type of vehicle as i was the third fix that week, and it was only tuesday!!
Now i'm trying to sell the truck. I just got it inspected, only to spend $1100 on fuel injector replacements(be sure you aren't buying bad gas and run fuel injector cleaner about once a month)..something odd for a vehicle with less than 50, 000 miles. My mechanic informed me that AC Delco can't keep these injectors on the shelf for this type of vehicle. Wow, go GM!! Hope the bailout was worth it!!
I'm afraid i won't be able to sell this truck for at least what it's worth because of the previous leak problem causing possible electrical damage(the mat under the carpet is still damp although water no longer leaks in) and i'm also afraid there are more underlying problems. I feel your pain and hope are closer to a solution. I'm going to try and contact AC Delco about possibly getting a report on this and then moving to the big guys GM about explaining this problem. I feel if gathering enough complaints they'll at least be courteous enough to provide reparations for our troubles..if not, Ford here i come!
