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.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Canyon. The contact received a recall notification associated with the NHTSA campaign id number 09V310000 (exterior lighting: Brake lights: Switch). The authorized dealer and manufacturer were notified and they both advised that the VIN was included in the recall defect; however, the vehicle was not registered or sold in the states mentioned in the recall and would not be eligible for the recall repair. The contact was displeased with the recall specification of the states inclusion. There was no failure mileage.
