problem #2

Apr 222008

Canyon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 22,900 miles
The contact owns a 2006 GMC Canyon. The vehicle was purchased on March 5, 2008 and two days later, the contact realized that there was no keyhole on the passenger side. The rearview mirror reflected the instrument panel instead of the rear of the vehicle. The rear window has no molding, which will cause major damage to the driver's head in the event of a crash. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer, but they were unwilling to make the adjustments. The failure mileage was 22,900. Updated 06/30/08

Canyon 4WD 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31 miles
I have a 2006 Canyon and in the last year I have had to replace tail lights, three sterios,4X4 buttons, windows, wiring has been repaired severial times, the truck is excessivly hard on gass, and as soon as my inline five cylinder engine hit 31.000 km I had to take it back to the dealer once again, this time for a new engine. Apparently there only good for thirty thousand and then need to be replaced. Hard to believe this truck cost me almost forty thousand dallors. Dont get what you pay for with a GM.my next truck will be a Toyota and this Canyon has convinced me to never buy another GM product again and hopfully I can save some people from making the same mistake I did.
