2005 GMC Canyon Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Z85 SLE Rwd SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 2005 used in 2009 after the lease ran out. It is a great tight well handly truck and I have had no problems with it. It gets a consistant 26 mpg with 3.5 and auto transmission. As I said I bought it used, but it still is in great shape and I am very pleased and would recomend it to anyone wanting this size truck.


Favorite Features

Great gas miledge, and good handling. Nice in between size and very confortable seats and interior.


Suggested Improvements

Right side door lock!!!!!!! This is my only complaint!

Review

I bought this truck used with only 20,00 on it. It was taken care of and the truck is a great little truck. With the 3.5 and auto trans I get a consistent 26 mpg. I have no complaints as it is a tight, well built truck. For a compact/mid size truck, it's great! It is also American built! I looked at other brands, and the GMC is as good as any other truck.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, quick steering and vantastic brakes. Well built/workmanship.


Suggested Improvements

Lock on passengers door! Honestly, NO OTHER COMPLAINTS!

Review

I bought my GMC Canyon used with 20k on it in early 2009. It is a well built and quality truck in my opinion. It has the 3.5 and automatic trans. and gets an average of 25-26 mpg. Very pleased with the truck and features and would recommend it to anyone who wants a smaller economical truck. I looked at Ford and the imports, and this GM truck is as good and maybe better and glad I bought it.


Favorite Features

comfort/ride good workmanship


Suggested Improvements

hood springs to hold the hood up and a passenger outside door lock

Review

This is probably the worst vehicle I have ever purchased. I traded in a 2001 Dakota to try and improve on the amount of money I spend weekly for gas. I do quite a bit of driving due to my work, plus I have to be able to carry material with me out to distant job sites. My first 3 months the truck was in the shop 7 times. I called the GM hotline to no avail. All of the problems had stemmed from when the truck was built. Windsheild wiper transmission mounts welded in wrong place, causing wipers to dig through plastic, gouge windshield, and finally stripping, all during a major storm, which is what my job is all about. Defective wiring, fried CPU. Dead on the side of the road again


Favorite Features

Nice looks and good gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Improve quality. Time to move back to a Dakota

Review

I've used this truck for hauling and as a daily driver. Great little truck, very smooth 5 speed, comfortable for a bench seat.


Favorite Features

Standard ABS, great clearance for a compact pickup.


Suggested Improvements

I wish there was a keyhole on the passenger side; it's an inconvenience at times to have to open the truck from the driver's side.
