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.

2008 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 152009


  • 450 miles


This is a new 2008 extended cab 4X4 GMC Canyon. The doors rattle all the because the rear doors are not mounted to the frame but only to the skin of the vehicle. This means there is constant flexing and vibrating between the two doors and the door frame. This vehicle has been to the dealer 4 times in the month I've owned it and they say "that's just the way it is". there is also an intermittent knock in the rt front of the vehicle that the dealer can't find. Finally the drivers side seat material is having to be replaced because of wear and stretching and this vehicle only has 500 miles on it.
