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.

2012 GMC Canyon Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 242012


  • 1,000 miles


There is an extreme unsafe condition that exist on all 2012 GMC Canyon pickups. There is no way to turn off the automatic door locks on these pickups. If these truck are involved in an accident and no one inside is coherent enough to put the truck in park the truck will remain locked, this could prevent bystanders from being able to open the doors and rescue any one. If there is a fire involved the passengers will burn to death needlessly. General Motors will not make any effort to resolve this serious problem. Please exibite this request to have GMC reprogram the truck so that the locks can be turned off. The 2004 Canyons had this choice in their programming.
