Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: While the 2005 GMC Canyon doesn't show any major complaint trends, it's mechanically-identical counterpart is the Chevy Colorado which has some engine problems.

2005 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 142006

Canyon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 24,000 miles


My 2005 GMC Canyon started having a groaning noise when turning sharply either way from a start or moving. I took it to the dealer who kept it and called to tell me it was defective body bolts, for which there was a bulletin. The parts had to be ordered directly from GMC. There it sits a week later, and I am without a vehicle, and I am very unhappy. GMC needs to overnight parts.
