These door pockets are actually my biggest gripe about my '16 Canyon SLT. I came from a '14 Silverado LTZ w/ buckets, huge console and more slot storage than I could ever use. I totally understand 'mid-size' and can deal w/ the smaller console and trays but these door cards are totally useless to me, utterly stupid in fact. I can maybe store a shop towel in any of the shallow slots and the what... 'drink holder' is useless as well.

I could see one shallow slot on top for small convenient items but there's ample room for a deep slot on the lower door area also. Once I saw pics of the door w/ cards removed there is nothing on the door inner that would prevent deeper lower pockets.

GM needs to wake the hell up on this door pocket issue.

Not near enough volume (yet) plus with all of the variations in color scheme (Colorado, Canyon - 2 colors)

Do all of the Colorado versions have same color scheme?

Sorry, patcty, I disagree. I had Ford rangers for over 20 years. The pockets on those doors were wide enough and deep enough to be useful. At 2" deep and 1.75" wide the doors on my Canyon are useless. I have a sunscreen for my windshield that folds down to a 6" X 3/4" circle. It barely fits in the door of my Canyon and frequently falls out when I open the door because the bin is so shallow. The tray in the center of the dash is likewise useless. All I can keep in it are a couple of pencils. In my Frontier I kept a small, 4" X 6" note pad along with a pencil. In the days before GPS I kept road maps in the doors of my Ranger. Fortunately I don't need maps today. They wouldn't fit in the doors of my Canyon anyway. I also kept my hand gun in drivers door. Being left handed it was very handy there. Almost everyone I know that got a Canyon or a Colorado, myself included, did so because it was the ONLY American "compact" truck and I/they didn't want/need a F150, Sierra-Silverado or a Dodge Ram. So 3 years ago when my 2000 Ranger gave up the ghost my choices were Tacoma or Frontier. I got a Frontier. I didn't like it so I got a GM product 2 years later. My first GM product in over 30 years. The truck itself is great. But there are so many things wrong with the interior of my Canyon, after less than a year I'm ready to get rid of it. In addition to a lack of storage space, no homelink (so I have to keep 1 of those stupid remotes on my visor.) No push button starter and a ignition keyhole that's hidden directly behind the steering wheel so you can't see it. Are just a couple of peeves I have. I can't afford to get rid of my Canyon right now but I will be in 2 more years. I read that Ford will have another Ranger ready for the 2018 or 2019 model year. If GM want's to keep me and many people who feel as I do as customers, they better fix some of these grievances.

I fill my door panels with nasty used tissues.

You mean those 'GM Customer Service' posers?? They're just social media people. Doubtful that they would ever pass on this type of information to GM.

Door Panels

My 2017 Canyon has those stupid door panels and I'm still trying to figure out what GM want us to use the pockets for . I wonder if they can be changed out with an earlier model truck door panel ?? Any body ever tried that ? I'm looking to change mine out if it's possible !!!
