I bought a 2016 Canyon with 8,000+ miles on Auto Trader and drove it 1,600 miles home. Ran the speed limit mostly, which in Texas can be 75 mph, and got 30 mpg. This summer I towed my small Airstream 8,000 miles on a trip up into Canada (what a beautiful country, at least in summer). Got about 15 mpg towing at 65. I have towed horses a lot in large trailers (40') with various trucks, up to a Freightliner. The Canyon is well designed, has excellent braking and cooling, and has a very quiet cab. I like to listen to music on long drives and can actually hear it well in the Canyon. This week my DEF pump went out which was replaced under warranty at 18,600 miles. Hopefully, this is not a common occurrence. Overall, this is one very nice truck and I hope to keep it a long time.
