2004 gmc canyon extended cab

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Canyon 4dr Extended Cab Z85 SL Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)

This truck has been dependable. I had to replace a speaker that blown. I have a check engine light that has been on for months, the mechanic said it was something minor an 02 sensor. Braking is excellent but when I stop suddenly it sounds as if it's metal to metal.




Could be better

Yes, you get what you pay for - many features for lower than competition prices. Materials, fit & finish are poor. 4-cyl + 5 spd manual gives me a 25 mpg avg. Not much power w/ a/c & 500 lb load in back. 5 spd manual has been hard shifting into 2nd gear (dealer says "normal"?). Main (major) problem so far is driver side doors (ext cab) have constant water leak. At the dealer right now for the 3rd time having entire interior removed and carpet replaced + new weatherstripping replaced on both doors. If they can finally get this fixed I would consider the truck acceptable at an average rating. There are better small trucks out there but you would pay more money.




Good little truck

I have only had this truck for a week, but it's really fun to drive. I previously owned a 1992 Nissan pickup and I really like the increased space and comfort of the Canyon. I got the basic truck, without any options, and was kind of disappointed at the lack of a couple of features. Since I did not see the specific truck prior to buying it, I was very disappointed that there was no keyed entry on the passenger side (I don't have power locks). This is an inconvenience if I need to load anything on that side. However, in spite of that, I think I will enjoy the Canyon for many years.




Great 3.5 liter rwd canyon

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Canyon 4dr Extended Cab Z85 SL Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)

Great Extended Cab with well designed interior. Very quiet inside and engine is quiet too. Air-Conditioning blows cool! Peppy 3.5 engine without loss of mpg. Bucket seats are very comfortable and adjustable. Extended cab gives plenty of storage room and occasional passenger room. Crisp looking exterior. Solid steering and "safe" feel in crosswinds.




Exellent
