It is a very good truck. Very dependable and good on gas for a truck. The only complaint is the driver side door speaker has blown out. other than that it is a very enjoyable truck that surprisingly hasn't gotten stuck in any areas.

This truck has been dependable. I had to replace a speaker that blown. I have a check engine light that has been on for months, the mechanic said it was something minor an 02 sensor. Braking is excellent but when I stop suddenly it sounds as if it's metal to metal.

I have had my vehicle since 2004, it is black, 4WD, and extended cab feature. Previously owned the Sonoma, and this truck is a big improvement. I added these features to the truck: 1.) sprayed in bedliner. 2.) alarm system, remote engine start. It has given me no trouble whatsoever, and has stood by my through thick and thin. Gas mileage is very good, has the slant 5 engine, gets 18 miles to gallon in city.

Initially, I loved this thing! Over some time, I realized that many small things would add up to make me hate it! The plastic molding is of poor quality, the rear seat cup holder has broken 3 times. Brake light recall sent me to the shop twice. Front turn signal wiring harness only works when bumped in just the right way. Gauges poorly located behind steering wheel. Musty air conditioner. Rear cloth seats that no one sits in have torn in the seams. Rear seats squeak constantly. Rear seats very uncomfortable when used. Computer acts up intermitently - alarm sounds when truck unlocks! Worst is that it is the same exact truck as the Isuzu I-370! Is it a GM or Isuzu?

I have owned my GMC Canyon for two and a half years now. I've found it to be a very reliable vehicle, with great distinctive styling that sets it apart from other offerings. When we take this vehicle on a trip, we average about 24mpg. I opted for the five cylinder, and I haven't regretted it a bit. It has a lot of torque. Hauling with a bed full over heavy items is effortless. I get many, many compliments on the exterior styling and what a sharp looking truck it is.

Still satisfied after 2.5 yrs.

I remain very satisfied with my GMC. I especially like the distinctive styling that sets it apart from all other trucks currently offered. I receive compliments on a regular basis. Most people assume it is 4-wheel drive with the off road stance. It's been 100% reliable throughout, with more than ample power for everyday driving. Driving with a full load in the bed is effortless. Driving on a rough country road is very smooth and controlled. I like this truck, and would buy another.

I bought my '04 Canyon used with 10k miles and now I have over 40k. It has great fuel economy and power. The only problem I've had is the passenger side heated seat was not working. But it's all fixed now and I couldn't have asked for a better truck!

This truck was in the service center for lots of little things. The problem was, I use the truck for work and and it would stay in dealership 2 days. I owned it one and half years it was in for 9 services. Check engine light, head light assembly fogging up, power window stop working, side molding falling off, rough idle, air bag sensors on. But I will say, when it ran, it ran good. It was reliabilty issues that drove me to Toyota. I put trucks to the test I visit 15 homes every day. A new truck should last a least a year without problems.

Pretty much what I expected. Had only one problem. Front end was aligned wrong which caused premature wear of the front tires at 17500 miles. Dealer replaced tires and realligned quickly. I have the crew cab with four wheel drive. Works good in our snow filled winters. Rides very smoothly gas mileage not as good as I had hoped.

Handling is tight and responsive. I was hesitant with the 15" wheels. I have towed cargo trailers with no problem or lack of power. The 5 cyl is great on gas without losing much power. Only problem was the valve springs. These were replaced around 10k miles. Evidently there was a service bulletin but no official recall. If you lose power at highway speeds--have them check valve springs (I think they fixed that on the newer models). Overall, I would buy it again. Great looking (I have black on black offroad package) and plenty of interior room with crew-cab.

Vehicle used mainly for city delivery. Fuel economy 23 mpg on route. Has manual shift which is ok, but no 'vette. Handles 3000 lb trailer ok when called on. I'd give it "considerly above average" over all.

Fun and good gas mileage

General Motors should have made this truck ten years ago and scrap the Sonoma. This truck rides quiet and smooth. The steering is tight. The gas mileage is good. Since I got my truck, other people I know have bought on e too. I love the 5 cylinder engine. Although car magazines rate the new Tacoma and the Hondas new pick-up truck a higher rating, I'll probably buy another Canyon when this one gets old.

Yes, you get what you pay for - many features for lower than competition prices. Materials, fit & finish are poor. 4-cyl + 5 spd manual gives me a 25 mpg avg. Not much power w/ a/c & 500 lb load in back. 5 spd manual has been hard shifting into 2nd gear (dealer says "normal"?). Main (major) problem so far is driver side doors (ext cab) have constant water leak. At the dealer right now for the 3rd time having entire interior removed and carpet replaced + new weatherstripping replaced on both doors. If they can finally get this fixed I would consider the truck acceptable at an average rating. There are better small trucks out there but you would pay more money.

I bought this one straight from the factory. I am a little disapointed in the quality. I have had the passenger door speaker blow out three times on me, as well as the parking brake handle come off and the hood latch break. No major system troubles, but the minor ones still sent it back to the dealer!

Excellent Pick!

I am very satisfied with the overall performance. it was not designed to be a rocket. I have no complaints with the power, and I can pull a loaded utility trailer with firewood weighing about 300 lbs. with no problems. The interior could use a bit of dazzle, as it is quite plain. Rear disc brakes would be better. The exteior is as classy as any small truck on the market. I have had many compliments on the design.

At first, the GMC Canyon's interior was hard to adapt to; the plastic materials left much to be desired. After a while, however, I adapted and began to appreciate the plastics. They are actually quite rugged. My truck has the I5, XM, 6CD, Auto-dimming/compass mirror, and power heated leather seats. All are very enjoyable. The seats are comfortable for the longest of trips, and the vehicle handles very well and has a TON of power for only having five cylinders. It is very much more powerful than its S-series predecessors, and I can confirm first hand that the truck can pull WAY more than it is rated -- the truck can pull over 7,500 pounds practically effortlessly. Trust me.

I've found the Canyon 3.5 liter excellent for fast interstate and slower, steep mountain driving. The two stage 4wd has also been very good on snow. The OEM tires, however, have limited "stickiness" in spite of their "all season" rating.

I have had my Canyon for several months now. Overall I'd give it a 9. Size is just right. Comfort is excellent (Front buckets). It is great for tooling around the city, and country roads alike. Suspension is very good. 4wd also very good. Bottom end grunt is lacking, but it's nowhere near underpowered (5cyl). Interior simple and clean, even if the plastic isn't as good as materials used in other vehicles. No mechanical problems at all. Payload rating is adequate. I agree it could be higher, but anything heavier would be pushing you around pretty good given the Canyon's relatively lower weight. It's a very good truck when you think reasonably.

This has been an incredible truck! The engine is smooth and powerful, the suspension soaks up bumps better than my roommate's 2001 Accord, there are no rattles anywhere, and everything feels solid and of great quality. I especially love the crisp shifting of my 5-speed Aisin manual. Compared to my father's 2002 Ranger, this truck is way ahead in all areas. I highly recommend one!

Sold my Dakota, got a Canyon. The Canyon is not the truck my Dakota was. Do like the engine/trans combination. 4 doors great. Canyon is smaller and sound more tinnie. Bucket seat were replaced with 60/40 split and no reduction in price. Right side (passenger side) has no key entry on the door handle, this is unsafe if you transport children. No way to enter truck if it is locked without breaking glass if for some reason the drivers door is damaged or obstructed.

Ordered in Nov. 2003 and it finally arrived in March 2004 but worth the wait. Trading down from an 02 Sierra that ran flawlessly for 95,000 miles in 2 years was a tough decision but with fuel over 2 bucks a gallon and 3 fill- ups a week something had to change. The choice was made easier when I saw pics of the new truck. WOW! 21 MPG with the I-5, plenty of power, holds speed on the mountains here in Northern "Kaaalifornia" (California for the rest of the you)

I have always been a Ford truck man until I drove the GMC Canyon. It has a lot more interior space and the bed is bigger also. My Ranger had a V6 in it, and don't get me wrong it had plenty of power, but it comes no where close to the in line 5 cylinder. I am very pleased with the power and performance of this truck. Keep up the good work GMC.

I was hooked after one test drive of the Z71 4x4. Rides and drives more like an SUV than a pickup. Little or no body roll around corners, and back end does not skip all around over rough pavement (or off-road) like my old 94 Silverado Z71. GM was right to sacrifice some towing capacity for better ride and handling. Folks who do serious towing and hauling are going to get a full size truck, anyway. This truck will perform any task most people will ever need, and is as comfortable as a car. I may not see the alleged 23 mpg, but I got a respectable (for 4x4) 19mpg on a recent trip at 75+ mph with air conditioning on, and the engine is not yet broken in.

I recently purchased a Canyon, was driving a Dakota. When I purchased this vehicle I was awhere that the truck was a bit smaller than the Dakota but they told me it was a comparible vehicle to the Dakota now after the purchase they are indicating that it is not a comparible vehicle. This truck is very light, tinny and a rattle can, it does not even come close to a Dakota. I am so sorry that I bought this vehicle but it is to late an now I will have to drive a vehicle that I do not like. The only thing that compares in this vehicle to the Dakota is the price. Are there other complains simliar. Thanks

It's to soon to make a complete review. Performance is not there. With the air on and four adults, there isn't any! I miss engine gauges. Oil,water,battery. With posi in the rear, it slips around in wet weather. Needs disc. brakes in back. I think that would help. I bought it to tow a 3100 pound boat. I think that was a mistake. Last veh. was 02 Envoy. It plenty of power,I had it in the shop 14 times. Dealer stated new model year problems.

I have only had this truck for a week, but it's really fun to drive. I previously owned a 1992 Nissan pickup and I really like the increased space and comfort of the Canyon. I got the basic truck, without any options, and was kind of disappointed at the lack of a couple of features. Since I did not see the specific truck prior to buying it, I was very disappointed that there was no keyed entry on the passenger side (I don't have power locks). This is an inconvenience if I need to load anything on that side. However, in spite of that, I think I will enjoy the Canyon for many years.

Awesome truck!

So far this truck has exceeded my expectations. Its extremely quiet(no road noise), good gas mileage, the engine is powerful and quiet. It's perfect for what most people need a truck for: like running to Home Depot or Lowe's to get needed materials for home projects. Pulling a boat or going hunting, camping etc. There's plenty of room in the crew cab model. I have two kids and when we go out of town, we load up and go in the truck. Overall, I could'nt be happier with this vehicle. I've been surprised because I have not seen too many on the road, but I think that will change after word gets out on just how good this truck is.

Great Extended Cab with well designed interior. Very quiet inside and engine is quiet too. Air-Conditioning blows cool! Peppy 3.5 engine without loss of mpg. Bucket seats are very comfortable and adjustable. Extended cab gives plenty of storage room and occasional passenger room. Crisp looking exterior. Solid steering and "safe" feel in crosswinds.

I have to say that the 2004 GMC Canyon is the best vehicle I have ever owned. I have had the full sized Jimmy and the smaller Sonoma, but they don't even come close. Its very reliable ( only a quickly fixed battery light ) and drives like a dream. The XM Radio and stereo system are fantastic additions. I can blast out a song or calmly listen to an instrumental one without outside noise interference. The Inline 5 Vortec engine is smooth and does have power. The look of the vehicle from the front has gotten lots of favorable comments and I cant tell you how many times people have stopped in a parking lot to look at it.

I really analyzed what I used my previous truck for. I really didn't haul any large loads in the back bed, nor did I pull a trailer with a heavy load. I mainly used it to commute to work, haul my family around, recreation, go hunting, etc. This truck fit as close to perfect as possible. It's not too bulky, nor a tinker-toy. So far, I'm very satisfied with the truck.

I have been shopping for a crew cab Canyon for about ten months. They are very difficult to get, especially in 4wd. I have owned two S-10s in the past. I also test drove the following crew cab trucks: Dakota, Tacoma, and the Frontier. You will not find a better truck for the money. Do yourself a favor and at least go drive one.

damn good truck

I have had absolutely no trouble with this vehicle, and I was skeptical at first about the 5 cylinder engine. The only thing I feel could have used a little more thought is an absolutely trivial item, the center console is not tall enough to use for an armrest. I feel that if the only complaint I can find is the armrest, then I am 100% satisfied with my purchase. This truck performs well, it rides better than many 4x4 vehicles I have been in. The electronic selection for 2wd,4wdhi and 4wdlo is very convenient, just push a button and away you go.

Excellent Truck

Great ride, performance and getting 20+ mpg in mixed driving. This truck is heads above my Sonoma and much more solid than the Dakota I drove. Room for wife, daughter and all our gear. Quiet smooth cruising.

Great Truck

This is a great truck. Fun to drive and very smooth. Lots of room. Worth sacrificing a foot of bed lenth.

I love this truck so much I have a had a dakota it has the worst crash rate and the f-100 what a joke if you like bumper cars buy it. The canyon is one of the best trucks I have owned and I dont care what you write

Best truck ever next to Silverado
