Stuff you should know

  • The Holden Colorado, introduced in 2012, marked a significant milestone for General Motors in Australia, competing fiercely in the ute market with its robust design and utilitarian approach.
  • Initially equipped with a 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine, generating 132kW of power and 440Nm of torque, the Colorado showcased strong towing capabilities, up to 3.5 tonnes.
  • While sharing components with the Isuzu D-Max of the same era, the Holden Colorado differs in engines, transmissions, and other components, with Holden adapting elements like suspension, steering, and powertrain tuning for local conditions.
  • A 2013 update enhanced safety features, elevating the range’s ANCAP safety rating to five stars, with the addition of electronic stability control.
  • In 2016, a major overhaul brought a refreshed exterior with a revised grille and headlights, while interior improvements included higher-quality materials and updated infotainment systems compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
  • The retuned 2.8-liter turbo diesel engine in the 2016 model offered improved refinement and responsiveness, delivering 147kW of power and 500Nm of torque, complemented by suspension tuning tailored for Australian conditions.
  • Holden continued to enhance the Colorado lineup post-2018 with added standard features and special edition models, incorporating advanced safety technologies like lane departure warning and forward collision alert.
  • Special editions such as the Colorado LSX and Z71 Xtreme catered to diverse preferences, appealing to urban drivers and off-road enthusiasts alike.
  • Despite General Motors’ exit from the Australian market, the Colorado persisted, although its lack of significant updates began to reveal its age compared to newer rivals.
  • Nevertheless, the Colorado’s enduring appeal stems from its rugged character, strong performance, and value proposition, ensuring its presence on Australian roads for years to come.
  • The four crew cab configuration has been the most popular, along with part-time 4×4 drivetrains, although 4×2 variants are available, alongside numerous trim spec variants and special editions like the SportsCat and LS V8 conversions.
  • Many used Colorados feature aftermarket accessories, and depending on the year, accessory packs were also available, contributing to the model’s versatility.
  • With Holden’s closure, concerns arise regarding parts availability and rumours surrounding reliability issues and build quality, prompting prospective buyers to scrutinise these aspects before purchasing.

What goes wrong

Exterior:

  • Some owners have reported chassis cracking above the front wheel arches in the engine bay area, potentially exacerbated by off-road driving with lifted suspensions.
  • Instances of water leakage into the front footwells due to issues with the high mount brake light, roof-mounted antenna, and roof rack mounts have been noted but are easily remedied.
  • Dim headlights and occasional failure of reverse camera grid lines have been reported, along with sporadic issues with door mechanisms and window operation.
  • Complaints regarding fading exterior plastics and decals have been voiced by a few owners.

 

Interior:

  • Significant complaints center around the MyLink infotainment systems, ranging from Bluetooth connectivity problems to ghost touching issues.
  • Owners suggest replacing the MyLink system with a quality aftermarket alternative as the most effective solution.
  • Sporadic reports of electronic malfunctions and brittle plastics on older models have been noted but are not widespread.

 

Mechanical:

  • The 2.8 Duramax Diesel, designed and made by VM Motori, generally performs well, although some models, notably 2014 and 2015, may experience high oil consumption.
  • Common issues such as DPF and EGR problems are on par with competitors, however the Colorado seems to suffer fewer DPF complications than the Toyota Hilux and far fewer EGR issues than the Ford Ranger.
  • Upgrades to components like the DPF bracket and intercooler hoses may be necessary and if not covered under warranty, are simple and inexpensive repairs..
  • Routine maintenance, including timing belt replacement at 150,000 kilometres, is crucial to prevent further issues. Replacing the fan belt tensioner while doing this is highly recommended.
  • The air filter housing is known to break, sometimes resulting in the broken plastic pieces being sucked into the turbo and engine. 
  • The front differential may require aftermarket upgrades for durability. This has been known to break when off-roading.
  • Transmission torque converter and valve body issues, manifested in shuddering on takeoff, are quite common. While a flush sometimes helps, it typically necessitates repair. In some instances, individuals have solely replaced the torque converter to temporarily resolve the issue, only to later undergo the costly process of rebuilding the valve body and pump housing.
  • Installation of a transmission cooler and more frequent servicing are highly recommended for towing applications as overheating has been reported.
  • Concerns regarding parts availability following Holden’s closure remain uncertain, although shared components with other vehicles and the Isuzu D-MAX offer some reassurance.

 

Recalls:

  • October 2014 – The 13 October 2014 Holden Colorado recall involves 3,075 units due to a defect in the retractor lock sensing mechanism of the third-row seat belts, which may not meet Australian Design Rules, causing the seat belt to lock on inclines between 9 and 12 degrees

  • April 2015 – Fault in Holden Colorado vehicles, 26,170 units affected, due to potential wear of Alternator B+ Electrical Cable insulation leading to electrical short circuit and fire risk.
  • July 2015 – 4,197 Holden Colorado units have a defect where a missing bolt in the rear seatbelt anchor bracket could lead to diminished rear seatbelt performance during a collision, elevating the risk of injury to rear seat occupants.
  • September 2016 – 2,714 units of Holden Colorado were affected due to incorrectly tightened front seat belt retractor bolts, posing an increased risk of occupant injury in case of accidents.

Should you buy it?

Every 4-wheel drive dual-cab ute, including the Holden Colorado, is a blend of strengths and weaknesses. Models like the Hilux, Ranger, Navara, DMax, T60, Triton, BT50, and Amarok all have their merits and drawbacks. The Colorado, too, fits into this paradigm.

Despite its imperfections, the Colorado now presents remarkable value and stands as a compelling option for those seeking a straightforward workhorse. While some owners have praised their experiences, others have encountered issues. However, if the vehicle aligns with your criteria, passes critical pre-purchase inspections, and hasn’t endured neglect from a previous owner, it’s worth considering.

In terms of performance and adaptability, the Holden Colorado boasts a proven track record. Its 3.5-tonne towing capacity makes it suitable for work or leisure activities such as towing boats or caravans. Additionally, its capability to navigate various terrains appeals to off-road enthusiasts.

While the vehicle previously attained a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, current models lack advanced safety features available in newer, higher-spec variants. Moreover, the design, although rugged, may seem outdated compared to contemporary competitors. Interior finishes might lack refinement for those who prioritise luxury, and fuel efficiency might not satisfy those focused on economy.

Furthermore, uncertainties surrounding the brand’s support in Australia could affect resale value and future assistance. Despite assurances from Holden/General Motors regarding parts and support, many owners have reported prolonged wait times for parts and challenges in resolving issues.
