Small back seat makes long trips uncomfortable.

Awesome Mid-size Truck — Pros: Great on gas milage for a truck, storage inside the cab is perfect for multiple large items (suitcases, bags, etc.) Cons: Back seats are small and not optimal for long trips with friends Overall, fun to drive and great for moving large items or multiple items. Makes college moving easy.

Pros

rugged

Cons

its a GM

25

Great Vehicle But Its Got Downsides — Performance - could use a bit more power or a different transmition gearing ratio, Factory susspension is garbage ( I reconmend KYB gas shocks) Has good wieght distribution which makes it great for offroad. handles well even lifted. Build Quality - Its an American make...lol do i need to same more Appearance - looks great inside and out, verry durrable interior, agressive body lines. Cost of Ownership - Good on gas everything is great except for the suspension Fun factor - Its fun due to the manual transmition and offroad capabilities

Pros

good acceleration, SMOOTH RIDE, no under/oversteer, good warranty, nice interior

Cons

had to take it into the shop several times for non vital repairs, body is weak, easy to dent, paint sucks, initial cost was expensive, poor resale value

Reliable, But The Body Sucks And It Was Too Expensive For What You Get. — I like the ride of the car, the steering is nice. I like the color, and the engine and transmission seem to be pretty reliable. However, the paint quality is poor, the sheet metal is thin and susceptable to easily being dented. The gas mileage is fair. The maintenance cost is pretty low for now, and the four wheel drive works well, with plenty of low end torque to spare.

New Owner — At 600 miles, my 2006 Canyon runs quiet, has good suspension, and the 3.5 gives good acceleration when needed.
