    They are not bad. If they are bad then why do people still love GM and why do GM make Military vehicles and Police vehicles and other utility vehicles?

      A lot of people have bad taste-- hence the popularity of McDonald's restaurants and Costco's weiners

  • That's bs.  I bought an 05 Chevy Suburban 1500 with a 163,000 miles. I bought it in 2012. I've changed the starter, brakes,  valve cover gaskets, alternator and spark plugs. End of story.  I'd rather push a Chevy than drive a Ford. **** just got real.

    This is news to me, I never had a GM give me less than 200,000 miles service except a VEGA: That was a piece of junk!  I think your information is all wet! or from FORD!

    Maybe you had a bad experience with them, but they are a reasonable cost and a lot of people here in Oklahoma own them, there's more of them than nearly any other vehicle.

    Let's see.  They had a Ford F-150 before and they had to pay $3000 to get the plugs replaced because they were broken inside the head.  So they bought a Toyota Corolla but the engine had a sludge problem and the engine seized.   They then bought a Nissan but the CVT destroyed itself.  So they bought a Dodge but it would not start every other day.  They got a Honda Civic but the sunroof exploded and the airbag light was always ON.  They also had a Jeep but nobody could fix a Check Engine Light (P0300) so it failed the smog test.  The last car was a Subaru but it drank a quart of oil every 500 miles.  So they got fed up and bought a Tahoe.  180k miles so far and all they had to replace was a left tie rod.

      GM is one of the best brand out there. Wait you own a lot of vehicles?

    Every car manufacturer makes an economy model. Buy a better vehicle if you don't like the base units.

    My GM Pontiac's have been great cars. I have driven Grand Prix's and Bonneville's with the 3.8 liter supercharged motors and you'd have to spend a ton of money to find a car with that much power, that many options, and low maintenance.

    I bought my daughter a new Malibu because that is what she wanted and no complaints so far.
