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

  • 83,000 miles


ABS sensor fault appears and continues to stay on. When light turns off terrible noise and vibration occurs when braking. I am concerned for the safety of my 3 year old and myself as the brakes do no react as they should. I have taken it and had the brakes replaced, the sensors replaced and the problem continues. After 3 different times in the shop, I am so worried that I am going to cause an accident with my truck. I have searched and there are hundreds of complaints with the same problem on please copy this link and check out all of the complaints about the same problem. Someone is going to get really hurt if this is not taken care of.
