I love with my vehicle, the mileage, color and comfort.

I am so happy with my GMC. I bought it in 2012. I was living in Lompoc and worked in Santa Barbara ca. I was driving 120 miles a day. My GMC canyon, is a 4 cylinder, a gas saver, is truck, is very reliable. I traveled to many places with comfort. It has many features that I do not understand. I am old school that is why I do not understand many of the features that my great truck has. The one that is most important to me is the motor and the performance of my vehicle, also the comfort.

My vehicle is so reliable and comfortable that I have to say it's great.

I love my vehicle. It's very reliable, I can move furniture and have my kids sit comfortable in there car seats. I've been driving it for years now and it still runs great. It's never broke down on me and it's easy to use and drive. I know I can always count on it to get me to doctors appointments or anywhere I need to go.

Compact truck with the get up of a lion I guess it's pretty nice.

Reliable and compact for a truck. Honestly they are hard to find, but if you find one for a decent price with less that 150k miles hop on it asap. I was able to find mine with 60k miles for $15k. Use that as a gauge when you buy yours. Very fun to drive and handy when it comes to the 4 wheel drive and the bed.
