March 8, 2011Is this question really necessary?
I work in a bodyshop, honestly Chevy`s are easiest to work on, ergonomics of design is far superior and craftsmanship is outstanding!
Ford trucks are based on an after-thought! Hey let`s put as many different sized bolts and screws on the truck as we can! And make push-in clips over 2" long, so they break everytime. And do I even need to mention the powersteering thing?
Dodge Trucks - Let`s make the transmission not serviceable so they HAVE to bring it to the "stealership!"
Nissan - I have nothing bad to say, except they`re UGLY as fug! Oh and if a stock height Nissan has slightly over sized tires on it, you have to pull the rear wheels just to get the bed off! Piss poor design imo!
Toyota - They are GREAT IMO! Excellent design, simple to work on, they parts are really expensive though!

sometimes smaller is better
March 9, 2011I have always had Chevy either car or truck. I would have never switched and still haven`t. My only doubt is the 03 Trailblazer I bought for my wife. It has had many problems including the transmission going out at 52,000 miles, just 2,000 miles after warranty expired. There have been many other problems that Chevy refused to help with. So now I wonder how reliable the newer Chevys are. My 99 Silverado has been great, but the Trailblazer, I don`t know. Even if a car has problems, the company should stand behind their product and not say that the warranty expired. There is no reason for a transmission to go out after 52,000 miles. Never towed anything and never driven hard. I still like Chevrolet and would buy another truck, but I have to think long and hard about possibly buying anything other than a Silverado. I probably will, but just not sure right now.
March 10, 2011For me, it`s a more comfortable ride than any other full size truck and there`s just something about Chevy that I connect with. Something that I can`t really explain but it`s more than just appearance or power. It`s something that I feel inside that makes me a Chevy guy.
March 10, 2011Masterdeluxe, I had alot of issues with my wifes 01 Blazer. Its a pc. of crap, however as in anything, there are always gonna be bad apples. She refuses to get rid of it but I would like to run it off a cliff.
Nic, very well said.
matsktr, thats probably about the only time.
March 11, 2011There are no cliffs in Miami, but I could run it into the ocean! With my luck I would get the bill for getting it out and towing it away.
March 11, 2011Yeah I`m in south jersey, we probably have as much sand in the soil here as you do in Miami. and all flat ground so I keep it running.
This post as I said before has to be one of the best, I love hearing all the Bowtie stories.

March 20, 2011griff custom 1500,
Your statement is very true. Case in point is my wife`s `00 Olds Bravada. It`s essentially the same car as you wife`s `01 Blazer. We bought it new 11 years ago this August and now have over 100k trouble free miles on it. Back then, the idiots at Consumer Reports and Edmunds predicted that the Bravada was a POS. WRONG! My `02 S10 pickup did have one problem. I had to replace the intake manifold gasket last year, but that was the only issue with my truck. Odd how things work out, but you never know if you`re going to get a good one or bad one. Bottom line is you can`t lose faith based upon one vehicle.

Take the paint from your S10 and throw it on the bravada and theres my wifes blazer. hahaha. Its not a bad truck but I`ve almost rebuilt the whole thing, on the other hand I had very, very little trouble with all the chevy trucks I`ve owned and there has been alot of them. If you get a Chevy over 94 that doesn`t need intake gaskets call the Smithsonian and get her in there. They all leak after awhile.
