Great product and value
After 11 years my tailgate latch finally broke. I ordered from 1a auto and the shipping was fast and the product arrived intact. The video from 1a auto allowed me to replace my latch quickly and the job was done in under 10 mins. The latch was a direct replacement and everything fit perfectly; the tailgate is as good as new again.

Plastic Parts!
The latching rod for the left side kept popping out of the V guide. I had to bend the latching rod and threw a wire tie on it to work properly. As is, I have to lift the gate latch to the very top of the stroke and then some before the gate unlatches.

Made very well and a Perfect fit and very easy to install. Less than 20 minutes and the job was done.

Open and shut case of a great product and dealer
Delivery was super fast! Packaging was very protective. Installation was super easy thanks to the great video (no other dealer I found offered an online installation video). I think the whole job took less than 8 minutes and the tailgate works better than it ever has. My new source for replacement parts for my GMC Canyon. Thank you, 1A Auto!

Pefect Fit - Installation video made install easy!
The part was a perfect fit for my vehicle. I watched the installation video once before ordering the part to make sure it was within my capability and I had the correct tools. Reviewed video once again before installing which made the installation quick and easy.

Tail gate handle for Colorado
Quick delivery and good fit. This is about the fourth handle I have had to change as they are made out of plastic and keep breaking in the same place. I have had good service with 1aauto and will use them for other parts for my Colorado.

Excellent replacement
This handle is an excellent replacement for a broken oem part. It cost 1/5 that of a dealer replacement part. Quality and fit are great. The on-line "how to" installation video was very helpful and work was done in less than 10 minutes. Works great!

I would have been alright with the quality But , one end of the handle return spring was not shaped properly, thus it cannot help pull handle back into position. QC problem?

We would definitely order from 1A Auto again.
My husband ordered a tailgate handle for his Canyon truck. The part matched the original handle exactly. The customer service team is excellent. Our order was lost in shipping. As soon as I contacted customer service they responded. They were prompt and polite. They gave us a choice of refund or replacement. We chose replacement. The replacement part arrived quickly. We will definitely use 1A Auto again. We are pleased with both quality & service.

Perfect fit
Came in earlier than forecasted. It was easy to install and works perfectly, I’m perfectly satisfied with my product. If you own a Colorado 04-12 this handle will work.

Doesnt fit body as well as original
It works fine and seems of reliable quality but the weather gasket and shape of the handle frame/base protrudes a bit away from the body, it looks like the whole handle is not flat but bends away from the body so fit is not tight to the body. Disassembled and re-assembled found no installation error.

Was the right one an worked great

Brian F November 21, 2016
no swap out the old lock ( easy to do )
Peter M February 23, 2017
You will have to reuse the cylinder from the old handle. It is easy to remove and install on the new handle. You can order the handle either with or without provision for a cylinder.
David S March 6, 2017
No lock or key. You need to use the old cylinder (and key if you have it). You can order either with or without the key/lock provision. The how-to video makes it super easy for anyone to install.
