Don't Bother
By Ron on


2006 GMC Canyon SLE 4dr Crew Cab SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)


First 12k was fine, then the head went twice within 200 miles. Truck has 23k on it now and is falling apart. 4th gear grinds (common, parts on back order 2 weeks) and locks out of reverse easily (tsb it's so common of a problem) beautiful styling, but falls short on reliability and quality of fit & finish. No more GMs for me, buy a Tacoma, you'll be happier. 23k new, 2 years old, worth trade in $9,200. No resale value and I get 19-22 city, 29- 32 highway.

Best Features

Interior styling & color. Body design. Thats it, beautiful truck, terrible driveline, not reliable

Worst Features

More reliability. Better turning radius, forget about trying to turn into a parking spot. Crewcab and extracab wheelbase and rack and pinion steering, not a good combo.
