    2004 GMC Canyon - SLE 4x4 Extended Cab

    Pros: High Speed 4WD and XM Radio

    Cons: General Ameritrac TR Tires -

    Advice: Make sure you get options you want up front - dealer told me they can't add fog lights now

    Purchased as a commuter vehicle for 100 mile daily winter commute on mountain two-lane roads. Has performed well, although I am not sure if I will keep original tires (General Ameritrac TR) - Will probably change to Goodyear Fortera HL's which greatly improved handling on our Ford Expedition.

    2004 GMC Canyon - SLE 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: cd player

    Cons: poor assembly quality and mr. goodwrench attitude and poor service

    Advice: Don't buy it.

    Driver information battery warning message comes on at temperatures below freezing. Makes you question if is truck is reliable enough to drive. Dealer reprogramed computer. No help. Attitude was GM knows about it and that was all that mattered. Wind noise through passenger door. Doors were misalligned by about 1/4'. Water leaks into driver side and onto carpeting. Puddles up to 1' deep at brake pedal. Front license plate holder floppy and nearly fell off. Front bumper mounting bolts loose. Right front of grill at headlight popped loose on bumpy pavement. Noisey muffler. No padding on door arm rest. Oil filter was seized up because no oil was put on gasket at engine assembly. List price $23,975.00.

    2004 GMC Canyon - SLE w/Z71 High Stance Off-Road 4x4 Regular Cab

    Pros: size

    Cons: bumpier ride than I wanted

    Advice: get a 5cyl and test drive different suspension models.

    Rides rough but like a truck so I expected it. Motor has been plenty sufficient for my uses including light towing. Back end gets loose quick on wet surfaces, might be the tire tread pattern. Gas mileage has been 17-18+.

    2004 GMC Canyon - SL 4x2 Extended Cab

    Pros: the comfortable seating and just right for me size. Most trucks are too big.

    Cons: I like it all....

    Advice: take into consideration your children's growth. They get big faster than you think.

    I thoroughly enjoy my 2004 Canyon Xtended Cab. It is the perfect size for me, and I pull a loaded 1700 lb trailer with ease. My husband however is 6'2' and doesn't have enough leg room for him (when he puts the seat back far enough, he gets leg cramps). Our son does get a little cramped in the back, as his legs are getting long( he's 16) but we didn't want to spend the money on a crew cab knowing he would be in college and gone in 2 years. Powerful engine, and great on gas, I love it!!! Highly recommended...I would live in it!

    2004 GMC Canyon - SLE 4x2 Regular Cab All

    Pros: the inline five-cylinder engine

    Cons: the tire seem a bit cheap

    Advice: it is the perfect size truck for most people

    IT IS THE FIRST OF TWO NEW CARS I BOUGHT THIS YEAR. CONTRARY TO WHAT THE REVIEWS SAY IT HAS MORE POWER THAN MOST PEOPLE WILL NEED.the crew cab is definately the way to go, and the adjustable tailgate is very usefull. the styling is what did it for me that is why i chose it over the colorado, and as for towing most people who tow more than 4000 lbs will use a full size truck.
