Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon 4x4/Transfer Case



  • omaitaomaita Posts: 16
    Sell the car men, I have so many problems with this truck (I got a Colorado 4x4 2006, only 34K miles) that I'm just tired, and the worst thing is Chevy Dealer Techs don't have a clue what's going on for every issue. Why, if they have so many issues with cars just make a RECALLS or extend warranties.
    I Know Nissan already extend warranties for the new transmission CVT. Why Chevy don't ???? American Revolution???
  • Believe me i know....Ive seen a few nissan Frontiers around for good prices and am seriously thinking about trading as soon as possible.I always loved Chevy trucks but i will never in my life buy another Colorado/Canyon and never suggest it to anyone.

    Hello Bigjoe06,
    I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with your vehicle. Have you taken your vehicle to another dealership for a second opinion? How long has the concern been present? Is the concern intermittent or all the time? Thank you,
    Mariah GM Customer Service

    Hello Omaita,
    Didn’t they fix your concerns at the dealership? That last time I spoke with you, you had stated that everything was going fine after the fix. Did the concern return after the fix? Thank you,

    I have taken it to 3 dealerships so far and besides getting the run around, having to wait all day to find out what is going on,fighting to even attempt to get a rental vehicle so im not late for work which any of the dealerships have never given me.there is only 2 dealerships in the Sydney NS that can even access my 4x4.I have had the encoder motor replaced already and afterwards i had my truck in 4x4 for maybe 5-10 seconds and it went on me again.These dealerships are absolutely the worst i have ever dealt with and the Chevy Colorado is probably the worst quality vehicle i have ever purchased.besides the 4wd ive had issues with the radio,power locks and windows,lights(interior and exterior),heating and ac works when it wants to and they are impossible to keep aligned

  • it is a 2004 with 120,000 km's and it has been nothing but trouble,i have kept all the maintence up to date
  • As you used kilometers as a unit of measure, I am gathering you are from Canada. We can look to see if there are any open recalls on your vehicle if you were to email us the last 8 digits of your VIN, but I would recommend getting in touch with GM of Canada for customer assistance if you should like to pursue a Service Request through us. They can be contacted at 800-263-3777.

  • I have a 04 colorado, and I have been having problems with my 4x4 as well. When I try to engage it, the lights keep flashing and it goes back to the 2wheel position. Sometimes you can hear it engage, and it says its engaged, but it isnt??? It's been in the dealership a few times for it and they dont know anything???? (Yeah right) I ended up putting in a new transfer case last year, and now its doing it again??? Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem.
    Please let me know if you do.... Thank you so much!!!
  • Hey Josh, I seen your post and my 04 colorado has been doing the same thing.
    Ive brought mine to 3 dealerships, and no-one seems to have a clue.... they all told me the same thing they told you. A new transfer case. well I put one in, and now the new one is doing the same thing that the old one and yours is doing... Go figure... If I hear anything I'll let you know. Please do the same. Thanx and good luck...
  • Yeah my truck is doing the same thing. and I was told that I needed a new transfercase, so I put one in and a year later its doing the same thing. And no-one knows a thing??? Its also been at 3 different dealerships, and chevy customer service here is a joke as well... its probably a $3.00 fix and they wont admit it. So many compliants and they dont know what the problem is???
    yeah right...

    In December of 2012 I reported that I couldn't get trans to go into 4 wheel low. My fault, you have to put in neutral to select low.Therefore no problem with 4 wheel drive !

    Have a major leak in rear wiper hose. Squirts water at right side of dashboard where it meets windshield. Is there an easy way to get to hose or do I have to remove dashboard? If have to remove, what is easiest way?
  • Hi I have a 2005 4x4 Gmc Canyon with 199,000km and the last couple of days I've been getting this thud thud thud sound from the drivers side floor only when its in 4x4 cant hear anything when the window is down ..... Is my front diff ready to explode or maybe a bearing?
