Just my 2cents.Hi all. I've been waiting patiently to see how the used market would develop for the diesel Colorado (I don't buy new anymore). I'm not married to getting a diesel, but I'm genuinely interested, as I understand this engine will proven over the years it has been available outside the US. Given the rave reviews these trucks have received, I'm curious if anyone can answer a couple questions -
- I don't drive a lot of miles (under 7500/year), are there any downsides with this (or any) diesel engine (mileage/fuel savings is not my primary driver, more in terms of engine longevity)?
- Many of the vehicles I am seeing for sale seem to have fairly low miles, or really high miles (given <2-year-old vehicles), I'm curious about any insight any of you current owner have that may shed light on why people are not keeping these trucks longer, given the premium paid to get one. What do they/did they know that I don't yet know as a prospective owner?
1. My truck only see me on weekends and family road trips, it does more city driving than highway. It seems to be doing quite well.
2. Quite a few people I know are getting rid of their canyon/Colorado has been jumping on the ZR2 bandwagon. Also some early 2016 diesel had a few issues.
Hope that help.
