 My truck started grinding everytime i used the brakes and the brakes would not stop you. i took it to a gm dealer (kenny ross). the hooked it up to a computer and it showed both abs sensors were bad in the front hubs. they said it would be around &1200 to fix them since it will take up to 8 hours for the type of sensor inside the hub. i feel this is a safety issue since you are unable to stop, and there are lots of other people on edmunds.com complaining to gm about the exact same problem with the chevy colorado. please take a look at all the complaints. thanks!
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

 On saturday morning my truck would not start. i went to jump it, and with no keys in the ignition and not jumped yet the windshield wipers and interior light went on. this went on for over an hour. i replaced basically a new battery. the radio did not work and dash lights did not either. on tuesday, april 17 after i picked up my son from school, the car started to make a loud scrunch noise and started to stall off and on. when i pulled into my drive way and shut off the engine i smelled something burning. i went to open the door and it would not open. i tried to open the windows and they would not go down. it was smelling really bad like something was on fire. about 25 seconds later, with no key in the ignition the interior lights went on. i put the key in the igination but did not start it and tried the windows again and my drivers side went down and i got my son out through the window. it had to be towed to the dealership. they said it was my alternator which is getting fixed. reading all the complaints i agree, why has this not been recalled. it's around 50k miles and the elctrical goes. luckily me and my son got out.

 Blower motor fan speeds work intermittently. fault was found in blower motor wiring harness where harness runs adjacent to glove box. jostle the harness manually below the glove box and the blower motor speeds will go from off to only a few speeds to normal. this could definitely be a fire hazard.

SERVICE BRAKES

 The cruise control stopped working. i paid little attention to this as it did not impair the operation of my truck. little did i know that my brake lights were not working either. this was due to a brake lamp switch failure. a recall was issued by chevrolet in 2006, and my vehicle was repaired. in 2010 my cruise control went out again. i knew from the first time that this was a severe safety issue and checked my brake lights. they were not working. it was the very same problem. the brake lamp switch had went bad again. i contacted chevrolet and they refused to pay for the repair, siting normal wear and tear. the local dealer did pay half of the repair as a courtesy. now, in 2012 the brake lamp switch has went out again and my local dealer is talking with chevrolet to try and get them to pay for the repair. we will see if they stand behind their product and treat a loyal customer right. *tr
