2006 Highlights

The GMC Canyon heads into 2006 with a new option package aimed at improving on-street handling performance. The ZQ8 package lowers the Canyon's ride height by 2 inches, quickens the steering and adds a thicker rear stabilizer bar. It also includes stiffer shocks and bushings and 17-inch aluminum wheels with 235/50R17 performance tires. Other updates for '06 include MP3-capable audio and the SLT trim being made available on extended and crew cab models.

I can't beleive I bought another GM
The build quality is horrendous! The doors do not seal and have no adjustment and are bend to fit. The seat material is garbage and already shows heavy wear at 12k miles. The a/c does not cool in traffic. Alignment was way off. Rear main seal seeps, power window go up crooked, no ash tray. The arm rest on the door is very hard and elbow gets sore after an hour on the interstate. There's trash in the paint, and vehicle was delivered to me with known defective tires and on and on and on.
My Canyon
I went from regular cab Sierra to the extended cab Canyon. At first I wasn't a happy guy, but this truck will grow on you. I put a bug guard and a soft tonneau cover on my silver Canyon. Do I get the compliments. I get 21 MPG around town with the 4 CYL. I have friends who have extended cab Ford Rangers and it seems as if the Canyon is more roomy. Have owned many vehicles since I started driving, my Canyon by far has to be my favorite.
I bought my canyon July of 2006,in February of 2007 engine light came on and the truck powered down.Took it to local dealership,they cleaned it up (said there was dirt on the sensors) and sent me on my way.a couple of days later same thing.This has gone on for several months.We've changed computers,brake lines, you name it.Still it does not work.This time they've had it for three weeks still not fixed. Gm rep wont call me..I'm really disappointed with my purchase..i regret it everyday...
