16. Chevrolet Colorado
The Chevy Colorado is a small, light duty pickup truck that sold relatively well a few years back. As the full duty and heavy duty trucks came down in price, consumers have largely ignored the light duty vehicles, since it isn’t that much of a price jump to purchase a better model. The newer model Colorado lacks the performance and features of full size trucks, and scores lower in crash and safety tests. The issue found with many used Colorados (as well as other used light duty trucks) is that previous owners may have exceeded the vehicle’s maximum towing capacity or payload capacity. This leads to transmission damage and suspension damage. In some cases the engine may be damaged due to overworking the vehicle.
