Re: GM's Colorado Vs. Ranger....
I had a colorado yesterday in shop almost 2hrs labor to replace thermostat plus the part is 50 bucks my cost front brake job very time consuming to turn the rotors u have to unbolt the bearing assembly and then the rotor is bolted together. Rear brakes are just as bad we charge double to the brakes on these trucks.
The electronic throttle body is always going out a $500.00 repair plus another $200.00 for the gas pedal seats are wore out in about 50k. The only thing I like about them is the crew cabs ride and drive real nice. I could have traded my 01 ranger for a 06 the other day with half the miles it looked good but just couldn't do it it was the xtreme version.
