Holden Colorado Pricing and Specs
Some think Holden's post-Commodore strategy is built around its Thai-built Colorado ute; traditionally its best-performing import. That success is at least in part down to the fact the $39,880-$63,990 Colorado is available as a single-cab, space-cab and crew-cab utility, and with a cab chassis, as well as a seven seat variant (the Colorado 7). Also available with two- and four-wheel drive, and with a choice of petrol or diesel engines in the range - starting with the base Colorado LS (4X4) and finishing with the top Colorado Z71 (4X4) - Holden's Colorado has a reputation for tough reliability and - in light commercial form - a commendable payload capability and impressive towing capacity, especially from its diesel engine.

Holden Colorado FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Holden Colorado here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Why is the gear stick in my 2015 Holden Colorado wobbly?
You’re on the right track by asking about the gear-stick and its linkages; either of those two things is almost certain to be the cause of your problem. The gearstick itself needs to pivot in two planes, so there’s always scope for wear to develop in those joints and create the sloppy shift action you’re experiencing. In fact, because the shifter on your car bolts directly on to the gearbox – with no external linkages – wear in the shifter pivots is a very good bet as the cause.
You can remove the shift lever, take it apart and replace the bushes that allow the shifter to move and select each gear. That should tighten up the shift action and give you much better feel for what’s going on. The other possibility is that the shifter has become loose where it bolts on to the gearbox, or the rubber gasket that sits between the shifter and the transmission has perished or failed, allowing movement to occur.Show more
Why does the engine light keep coming on in my 2008 Holden Colorado?
If replacing the actual sensor doesn’t fix the problem, then you could be looking at a problem with the wiring that connects that oxygen sensor to the car’s on-board computer. Did the mechanic that changed the sensor check the condition of the wiring? This equipment all lives very close to a very hot exhaust system, so damage from that is not unknown.
There’s also a chance that the computer itself is throwing up a bogus fault code when it’s interrogated. Temporarily swapping the computer for another one is a reasonably simple way to rule this out. There’s also a chance (and it’s more common than you might imagine) that the brand new oxygen sensor you had fitted was a dud straight out of the box. This has definitely been known to happen, and it’s the first thing some experienced mechanics will think to check.Show more
How do I disable the seat-belt sensor for the passenger seat in my 2012 Holden Colorado?
A better idea would be to fix the sensor that’s creating the false alarms. That will probably be simpler and quicker than finding the right wire to cut or fuse to pull out, as well as maintaining the car’s legality. A car that doesn’t have all its safety equipment functioning properly is, technically, unroadworthy and if that fault can be blamed for any injury in a crash, then you could be in real trouble in a legal and insurance sense.
Don’t forget, too, that a car such as yours will usually have a sensor to determine whether the seat-belt is secured and another to determine if the passenger’s seat is occupied. Either of those could conceivably be causing your false alarm.Show more
