"Love my lil truck, at 50,000 miles it cost me $1100. To replace the head gasket. and the temp gauge falls to cold when getting on it to pass. Other than that Its very comfortable and rides and drives better than most newer cars I have driven.Very smooth ride for a Truck even with the Z71 upgrade. It still runnin like new with 80,000 miles."
"This truck has been the best truck I have ever owned.It has neve had to go in for any work just oil changes any at 50.000 miles I had a bg transmision fluid change.The more I think about it I my just keep it."
"I have had more fun driving this truck than any other vehicle I have ever owned (20 so far). This truck gets a lot of looks, because it does not look as cheap in person as the other models. There are special paint colors that were available for this truck that were not for the regular canyons (mine was a Denali color). Lots of power, and you can get good gas mileage if you can keep off of the aluminum 5.3, which is hard. It takes a few small things to wake this truck up, but not very much. If you can find a 2wd, get it while you can, they are impossible to find. Good luck!"
"My second GMC truck and like the first I've loved it. It has been very dependable. In the almost six years I've owned my Canyon it only had to go into the shop once for AC/Heat issues and it turned out to be just a loose ground wire. Extremely comfortable! Traveled all over the east coast in my Canyon and even my wife commented on how comfortable the ride was. It's going to be hard to let go of my 2005 Canyon but it's time to update."
