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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Canyon. While driving 25 mph or lower, the vehicle vibrates and makes a grinding noise. The failure has caused the contact to drive through a stop sign on two occasions when the pavement was wet. On April 12, 2007, the dealer replaced the bushing and body sham. On April 17, 2007, the rear drums were replaced and he received a new shoe kit. On July 12, 2007, the dealer stated that they could no longer hear the noise. The current mileage is 23,224 and failure mileage was 18,000. Updated 09/05/07
