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 2006 GMC Canyon doesn't show any major complaint trends, it's mechanically-identical counterpart is the 2006 Chevy Colorado which has some engine problems.

2006 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012007

Canyon 4-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


The contact owns a 2006 GMC Canyon. The parking brake cables, which is attached by metal fasteners beneath the spring, hangs down two to three inches instead of being on top of or on the side of the spring. This is a design flaw. GM informed the contact that there was no one he could speak with concerning this failure. Instead, he was advised to write to a P.O. Box. The current mileage was 2,910 and failure mileage was 100. Updated 03-05-08 the consumer stated the brake cables were fastened to end under the frame of the vehicle, forming a loop below the vehicle which can catch debris and rip out the brake cables.
