Hi, I'm looking for a first gen canyon/Colorado for my brother. Are there any COMMON problems with the 2.9L engines I should worry about, any general issues with the trucks to watch for, (please don't respond with a "my engine blew up at 6500rpm with no oil at 350,000 km" stories just actual common issues). I have done a couple googlings but not much found in the way of a list of things, if you know a list post em here!


Thanks a lot from me and my brother

We've had a couple trucks with exhaust manifolds that cracked at the dealer. They have a 10 year/120,000 mile special coverage on it for 2009-2010 model year. A couple came apart for misfires, both got cylinder heads. Other than that, pretty quiet and solid little powertrain. Sorry I don't have any first hand experience with them (owning or driving). Wish I could help more...
