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.

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.

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 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.
