  1. Hey everyone, thanks for the add! Got myself a 2016 Canyon SLE. I was wondering if anyone might have any ideas about something I've been looking through forums for before going to a shop. I was driving it to lunch and as I was turning, it completely stalled out on me. Battery was still on but no acceleration as if the engine cut off yet no indicators popped up on the dash. I quickly threw it in park, turned it off completely and restarted it no problem and its still driving smooth with no other issues. There anyone with the same problem before or ideas of what it might be?
  2. Hi just wondering if anyone would be able to help. My truck makes this rattling noice when being accelerated. When it started it wasn't that bad but has progressively got worse. It's worse when it's cold then goes away for the most part once the engine is warmed up. Sounds like it's coming from the front end. Thank you! 20220307_163644.mp4
  3. I have a very nicely equipped 2017 Chev. Silverado z71 Quad Cab. Only have 6500 miles on it and bought it as a kind of retirement gift for myself. I use it for various things but mostly to go fishin or huntin in and tow my 18 foot Basstracker. The issue I am having is backing my boat back into the garage with it. I live in town on an alley and it is very tight trying to get the proper angle backing into the garage, especially if the neighbor is parked on the other side of the alley. I am wondering how much I might be gaining in maneuverability by trading it in for a smaller truck? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks for any help.
  4. What package would be better, the 2019 Canyon All-Terrain Leather, or the 2021 Canyon AT4?
  5. Recently installed a Blackvue DR590W 2-channel dash cam system into my 2019 Canyon. I used a Powermagic pro to hardwire it to the vehicle, and a Blendmount to attach it. Really like the video quality of these cameras. Check out my install video.
  6. Installed a set of iBoardAuto running boards on my 2017 Coly. Check out the install and review videos below: INSTALL REVIEW
  7. I'm looking into replacing my aging 2002 Silverado Z71 with a new Canyon or Colorado, I'm eyeballing two at my local dealership that come with 15% cashback plus a few discounts. Options-wise they're very similar, one an extended cab Colorado Redline and the other a crew cab short box Canyon, 4x4s and V6s both. I've taken them for a test drive, and really liked how they drove-I found them both really comfortable, and they were (At least from my perspective) really pleasant to drive on the highway and handled great to drive around. But for those that have had one for a while, how are they to live with? I've seen issues with the 8-speed transmissions, but aside from that are there any known problems that are popping up with these trucks?
  8. hey im new to the forum and wanted to know if there are any other towing mirrors available for a 2017 GMC Canyon other than clearview. Thanks!
  9. I bought my 2015 4 x 4 Canyon SLT from a Toyota dealership used so I got very little info. Do I have the z82 suspension package since I have the SLT 4x4 because that's what I've been told. does that mean I can tow the 7k lb? can I update the maps or OS in the GMC intellilink system? Keeps giving me traffic warnings for situations years ago and doesn't indicate roads that have been built since 2014. Does anyone have any tips or things look out for possibly any proactive maintenance tips? Have seemed to notice a intermittent slight rough idling issue when stopped at a red light sometimes.
  10. I have a set of 2019 Chevy Colorado rims that are 18x8.5 and 6x120 and they come with tpms already installed. These will fit any 15-19 Colorado and the tpms just need to be programmed to the vehicle. MSRP on these rims and sensors are $2310.08 before tax and core charge (which is $50 per rim). I'm looking for $1600 obo they do not come with tires or center caps. Message me if you have any questions. I have more pictures of the back of the rims showing they are genuine GM rims but they are to large of a file to upload.
  11. decisions on vinyl wrapping the entire truck. mainly for paint protection but also for major visual enhancements
  12. I have a new 2015 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab Z71 2x4 and i have had it for about a month now after waiting 2 months ordering it. I am hoping someone here can help or possibly provide some insight beyond what I have already been able to figure out. I am getting a pretty strong left to right shake on the freeway that starts almost exactly at 79/80 mph and doesn't go away as i go up. I live in Southern California so 80mph is a pretty standard speed on the freeways here. If no one is in the passenger seat you can see it moving back and forth. I don't feel it at any lower speeds. I have had it to the dealership 3 times so far. 1st time they balanced the tires and it didn't fix it. 2nd time i took the tech on a ride and he said he definitely felt the shake and thinks it is most likely the drive shaft. So i take it the 3rd time and they had it for a week only to find out they only balanced the tires again. They claim to have done the vibration test and couldn't find anything and obviously didn't listen to the tech that was in the car with me. They have since claimed there is no issue and I am basically making it up/ it is a normal shake. Personally, i don't think they even tested it at 80mph because they keep trying to say that since it is over the speed limit they can't test it. I would love to hear them say that to someone who bought the Corvette and had this complaint. I am not an idiot when it comes to cars, i have worked on my own cars for a long time but this is a brand new car that I feel the dealership and Chevrolet/GM should be doing a far better job of insuring it is issue free and SAFE. I do have another scheduled appointment with the dealer set up through Chevy/GM customer service where i will show them the video i recorded with my GoPro that proves at 80 and over its shakes like a massage chair so bad you can't even see the cars/lanes through the window. I love the truck and really want to get this issue fixed but if Chevy keeps denying it and wont stand behind their products I will have to get the lawyers involved and lemon law. If the truck would have came with a disclaimer that you can't drive over the speed limit without it shaking I wouldn't have bought it. I would love to hear if anyone else is having the same issue or any professional mechanics that might have an idea of what it could be. Thanks
  13. Hey guys, so I did a review and install video for Clearview Mirrors USA. They were awesome and sent me out a set of mirrors for my truck. I did a full unboxing, review, and installation of the mirrors. They really are top notch. Be it pricey, but if you are doing any sort of towing with your Colorado or Canyon, these mirrors will definitely make your life easier. The mirrors are super well made, very sturdy. I am very pleased with them. All the info you need is in the video. Leave a comment and a thumbs up. Definitely go visit the www.ClearviewMirrorsUSA.com website and check out the product page.
  14. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-19-2018 GM is recalling a list of vehicles because a fuel line can detach from the fuel pump and thus present the chance for a fire. The full text of the NHTSA report is listed below. If you want to look up your own vehicle to see if yours is on that recall list you can do so here. Or you can hope that the snail mail system works and brings you a notice. If this recall sounds familiar don't be surprised. GM has had a long history of recalling vehicles for fuel pump and fuel line failures.
  15. Zane: The 2.8L Duramax is an engine that will extend the capability of the Colorado and Canyon to within a stone's throw of the full-size Silverado and Sierra. From the moment you turn the key, there’s no mistaking this as a diesel engine. Noticeably louder than GM’s other gas engine offerings, owners will probably enjoy that their pickup sounds remarkably similar to the bigger 6.6L Duramax V8. In our short drive time we were impressed by the massive amounts of low end torque for a vehicle of this size. 369 lb-ft of torque at only 2,000 rpm goes a long way. However, with only 181-horsepower, the Canyon 4x4 crew cab we drove didn’t feel as quick as its 3.6L gas-powered counterpart. Point the nose of the GMC up a steep hill and the Duramax diesel’s benefits are immediately apparent. Nothing is going to stop this truck once it gets moving and you feel like the hand of God has your back. Acceleration is smooth and linear through the entire engine range. That’s the experience diesel truck buyers want and GM has given it to them. Bolder, louder and purposeful in nature. Oh and did we mention fuel economy? Prepare to be impressed. We saw over 30 mpg on our drive loop. GM executive Mark Reuss confirmed to us that the final EPA number should be very close to our results. That would place the Colorado and Canyon has the most fuel efficient trucks you could buy. No wonder GM is exploring options to increase the number of Colorado and Canyon it can build. John: What struck me first was the great look of the Canyon. Particularly from the front ¾ view. I had just left off-road testing in a 2016 Tacoma and in terms of looks, the Canyon wins hands-down. My tester was a $45,280 SLT Crew Cab with 4WD. Trucks are expensive now, but this one had it all. Premium Bose audio and Nav ($500), Spray in bedliner ($475) and Chrome assist steps ($725). I was impressed that the Canyon had Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert at no extra charge. That will cost you $500 on a Tacoma. The biggest single adder was the $3,730 Duramax engine. Although that buys a lot of gasoline, the Duramax has benefits beyond fuel economy to its fans. Hills surrounded the venue we were attending, and they were steep. Like Zane, I was immediately impressed by how strong the Canyon I drove felt. I too noted the fuel economy. Over the past 50 miles that it had been driven in rural NY the vehicle had averaged 22.2 MPG and its peak had been 34.5 MPG (according to the truck). Writers at this event were passing up track time in a Corvette to drive the Canyon on-road. It was one of the most popular vehicles at the event. The new Canyon and Colorado Duramax will not disappoint. GM is proud of this new truck, and as Zane’s interview with Mark Reuss proves, GM is looking hard for places to build more. The Canyon Duramax looks, drives, and acts like a winner.
  16. We can't wait to share our experience driving of these exciting new GMC models as it happens. If you've never seen one of our Live Posts, check out what we've done in the past. In the meantime, we're looking for your suggestions and comments. What do you want to know? What do you want us to check out? Even highly technical questions are welcome as we will have an opportunity to chat with engineers and product managers. See you all LIVE on October 6th!
  17. A pretty close tie we'd call that, except one thing. The Duramax engine costs $3,750 more than the V6 gasoline engine according to GM. So, by our estimation the Duramax has a higher cost over 100,000 miles on a strictly fuel economy basis. Diesel owners don't care about combined MPG though. Most diesel fans only look at the highway mileage of their trucks because that is the situation in which the diesel is most efficient. So we re-ran the calculations using the V6 gas engines' highway mileage of 24 MPG and the diesel trucks' mileage of 29 MPG. Here is the result: Gasoline Canyon and Colorado - $9,125 Diesel Colorado and Canyon - $ 8,548 Here the diesel looks much better until the engine premium is factored in. Of course, the diesel has other advantages. This analysis is simply one way to look at the cost for fuel over 100K miles. If anyone spots a math error please let me know and it will be corrected.
  18. NHTSA says that the recall covers 2015 model year trucks made from January through April of last year. GM will replace the steering gear pinion sensor cover assembly at no cost to owners. To see if your truck is affected by the recall click here.
  19. Back in 2014, Toyota new the new GM twins were coming. Toyota has huge respect for GM trucks, and American trucks in general. It knows that GM truck fans are loyal, that GM truck valuations are now close to that of its own trucks (which are still the best for resale overall) and that GM's quality is now on-par with the Toyota trucks. Despite all this respect (and maybe a little healthy fear) Toyota doubled down. It added workers and a third shift to its Tacoma facilities so that if it its truck had buyers the trucks would be on lots. Are we trying to "diss" GM here? Heck no! GM too was bold. When GM started to create the new Colorado and Canyon many truck followers said that it was dumb. Who wants a truck that cost almost the same as a 1500, but is smaller? With gas prices low, more naysayers chimed in pointing out that the fuel economy of a 1500 is not that different than a V6 Colorado or Canyon, so why will buyers downsize. This is a great time for all truck makers. With a few notable exceptions (Nissan missed the boat, Honda chose exactly the wrong years not to have any trucks for sale), automakers that focus on trucks are kicking and taking right now.
  20. These trucks are made in the Wentzville, MO plant. The trucks rely on parts from outside the plant, of course. The Duramax comes from Thailand for example, but GM is a world leader in supply chain management. This week GM reported, "GM inventories are disciplined, and the company expects to operate with about a 70 days’ supply throughout the year in most months, with some months higher or lower." And the company also reported that "Ten Chevrolet models – Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Colorado, Camaro, Impala, Malibu, Cruze, Sonic, and Traverse – grew retail market share in their respective segments." While it may be true that Colorado grew market share while dropping significantly in sales, it seems a little odd to parse it that way and faked us out in the sense that we assumed production was normal for the period. Looking deeper after being tipped off by a Colorado fan, we asked the Wentzville plant spokesperson if the plant had been idle for longer than the industry's typical holiday shutdown. The response cleared some things up. Darin Copeland, Plant Communications Mgr. at GM's Wentzville Assembly and Stamping plant, told GM-trucks.com today, "As you know the Colorado has been a strong seller since its introduction so during the first two weeks of January we took the opportunity for an extended holiday shut down period to make plant throughput improvements that will increase our line rates to make more trucks for our customers down the road." The upshot of this is that the dip in sales last month were most likely due to Colorado and Canyon production line upgrades. Even better news is that the changes may give the trucks a bit of a bump in production. Coupled with a decline in GM's commercial fleet business, this could mean more trucks for private buyers on dealer lots starting this month.
  21. The Detroit News is now reporting that GMC spokeswoman Kelly Wysocki said in a Wednesday email that, “The highly anticipated 2016 GMC Canyon Diesel has begun shipping to dealers. We look forward to getting these trucks in the hands of our customers and appreciate their patience.” If trucks began shipping last Wednesday, they have arrived already. It takes a couple of days for dealerships to process vehicles for delivery, so that means that as of today customers with trucks on order should be getting phone calls. If you are one of those lucky ducks, please let us know. We would love to have an early recipient tell us their thoughts on the exciting new trucks.
  22. KBB's retained value percentages are based on MSRP. Toyota has a reputation for selling vey close to MSRP. GM's brands almost always discount. If you are a veteran or if you qualify for another of GM's promotional discounts your buy price can be well below MSRP. This is strictly conjecture, but in real-world used truck sales, the Colorado and Canyon may already be overtaking the venerable Tacoma. The GMC Sierra is also danger-close to matching the Toyota Tundra now. Although the spread is actually wider, we all know the Sierra doesn't sell near MSRP. General Motors now has four of the top 10 vehicles in America for resale. In terms of vehicles sold, GM dominates. Yet, KBB named Subaru the best brand for resale among mainstream brands. Go figure. View KBB's full report here.
  23. If you actually have one - not on order but in your driveway - please comment below. If you do have an order in tell us when the dealer has promised delivery. Thanks in advance.
  24. The affected vehicles were build in August and September, so they are fresh off the dealer lots and still have that new-truck smell. Owners may not be pleased to be informed of a problem within weeks of buying a new truck. You can lookup your VIN here at GM's Recall Lookup site to see if your vehicle is affected.
