2004 GMC Canyon 2.8
Good little truck for the money
- A/C blower motor resistor replaced.
- Engine thermostat.
I recently purchased this truck. I got a good deal on it, and needed to save on fuel. I am getting approx. 25mpg hwy.
The truck needed a little work when I bought it. I've performed a tune up (plugs, fluids filters, etc.) and am pleased with how it runs other than the rough idle. I have not been able to smooth out the idle to point I'm satisfied. Cleaning the throttle body helped quite a bit, but still not perfect.
The truck only having the 4 cyl is not great on power. With the A/C on, it can be somewhat of a struggle at times to get out into traffic, but I was looking to get good gas mileage and not performance.
I would not recommend this vehicle for more than very light towing. I have a full size for any towing needs I may have.
The interior is pretty comfortable for a base model, little extended cab truck.
All power options seem to still work fine, including the A/C. The truck does not burn any oil. All in all, it has held up good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
