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

Jul 032008


  • 3,000 miles


2008 GMC Canyon crew cab 4WD: Purchased new jun08. In july08 dealer replaced 1 tire. In dec08 dealer replaced all 4 tires. I asked about cause for wear and was told "you got a bad set of tires". feb09 the truck is in again with cupped tires and I'm told I need to pay for an alignment to properly diagnose the problem. Vehicle is not driven hard, has mostly highway miles, does not pull and the tires are always properly inflated and rotated......the dealer is covering a bigger problem with misdirection or misinformation to get to the end of the warranty period -- then I'm stuck with a big repair bill.
