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: The GMC Canyon is mechanically identical to the Chevy Colorado.

2007 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

The truck experiences engine stutter at low idle (>1000rpms) varying from 1000 rpms to 200 rpms with felt loss of power steering at low rpms. At lower rpms, typically at stops or low idle turns, the truck will stall with loss of power steering and brake control (tapping the brake equals slamming the brake). Recently, the issue is now becoming more frequent and now occurring while making low idle turns into traffic causing a stall. The only resolution is to drop the truck in neutral, in traffic, and restart hoping the bump start will occur on the first try before being hit from behind. I have called GM service shops, the service center in detroit as well as looked for recalls online and there are no official postings or knowledge of these problems despite numerous individual accounts found in GMC/Chevy forums. This issue is a dangerous issue in my opinion and needs to be addressed.
