2020 Chevrolet Colorado Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Headlights, electronic stability control and electrical system issues among the top complaints received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners

While the majority of pickup owners look for a full-size truck, there are plenty of people getting behind the wheel of a compact version instead. The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is a top choice, offering “all work for more play.” However, customers find that there is certainly more work involved while trying to resolve the issues with the electronic stability control, electrical system and exterior lighting.

Problems with the Electronic Stability Control

Advanced systems help vehicles remain under control at all times. Yet, there are serious problems with the electronic stability control system on the Colorado.

One NHTSA complaint says, “Bought 2020 Chevy Colorado WT exactly two weeks ago today and on my way home from the 3 day weekend the traction light as well as ESC Service light came on. I have 227 miles on my vehicle.”

There are no manufacturer communications related to this problem, but it is something that should never be dealt with. Basically, the “all work” aspect of this truck is to struggle to keep the pickup on the road without any major warning systems occurring. In order to experience “more play,” customers might prefer to go with a different brand altogether. Maybe it’s time to jump ship and go to Ford after all.

Problems with the Electrical System

On any vehicle, the electrical system must be designed to handle the advanced systems it runs. Yet, complaints are abounding regarding the faults occurring.

One Edmunds review talks about several problems. “Check engine light after 20 miles for some wiring issue, multiple problems with the air conditioner that the dealer can’t duplicate, and then today my touchscreen locked up. All within the first 2,000 miles.”

In this situation, Chevy has issued countless communications about troubles with the electrical system. One such report, Service Bulletin #070604025M, states that customers might hear a noise, ticking sound or clicking when starting the engine. However, Chevy wants customers to know that this is a “normal characteristic.” Basically, the automaker is saying – nothing to see here! Telling truck owners that strange noises are normal is only going to further alienate the base.

Problems with the Headlights

To drive the Colorado at night, it must be equipped with headlights that provide maximum visibility, but that’s not the case with this Chevy truck.

Another NHTSA complaint states, “The low light output while driving is very dim and the visibility seems to be reduced. While driving thru back roads poorly illuminate it seems that the lights are not enough.”

Again, Chevy isn’t hiding troubles with the lighting. Service Bulletin #PIT5516D talks about dealing with the accessory off-road lamps becoming inoperative. Basically, Chevrolet wants customers to “work” and “play,” but they might not be able to see clearly in the process.
