That's a huge problem, and the "better run" companies actually promote that sort of thinking with follow-up marketing efforts designed to convince their customers that they made a good decision.JD Power is another interesting one. For one thing, that is an initial quality survey which means it tells you how well a car is put together rather than how long it will last. Those are quite different. But more interesting is how much purchase price factors into cognitive dissonance. Basically, I buy a Chevy Cruise and one little thing goes wrong, I'm super pissed. I buy a Porsche and the transmission grenades, I'm like "It's been great, only had one little problem with it so far." Nobody wants to admit their $125,000 car is low quality.
your other thread says they claim its a best buy. least reliable and best buy seem to be contradictory to me. read this forum. mostly complainers and/or looking for answers. once GM fixed the transmission issue with software update, i never had another problem with my canyon 4yrs and 85K miles. only come back here to see whats new. its the same old...but less complaintsDid they not get paid?
That sort of thing is subjective, and dollars to donuts GM did some testing of the seats to see what people like and don't like. I think they probably know that people sit in cars before buying them.What an "uncomfortable seat" and "weak feeling engine" has to do with reliability I have no idea.
. . .. The seat is now good too after a little break-in.
This is what we do to messengers!I just post what I find. Don't shoot the messenger! Is there an honest vehicle reviewer anyways?
I actually like watching TFL Truck, but now that they're big shots, can they resist following the money?
Some of the most honest reviews I've read, or tubed, that crapped on the Rado, were from sedan experts, not truck experts, but they were honest opinions from someone who shouldn't have been picked for the job.
Ram, yeah, Ram has really stepped up their game. For one, they have a sway bar in the rear. I had to put one in the Rado.
I had heard whispers of the return of the Dakota. Remember that V8 RT? YESSSSSSSSSS
Hmm... Dodge and jeep are 2 vehicles that should stay at the bottom of a reliability rating.Different consumer magazine.
As to full size trucks, right now I'd probably buy a Ford or Ram, but in a couple of years that could be different.
Im a new colorado owner... But i have owned toyotas for years and can agree to this. My colorado does feel more powerful than the tacoma and has extra HP to back up the claim.The engine did feel more powerful than the Taco's though and the update fixed my engine.
When i bought my first tacoma 5 years ago, in 2015, i went and test drove the colorado first... In fact i had my mind made up that my first truck after over a decade of driving jeeps and cars was going to be a colorado.... Before the jeeps and cars i had owned a couple chevys, so i was more in that mind set...... But after a quick test drive i was totally not a fan of the seat. And not really a fan of the front end as much as the taco either... But then again the only colorado they had at the closest dealership was a base model.That sort of thing is subjective,
And yeah, the Colorado seat did take a bit of break in to become really comfortable, but I didn't find them that bad from the get go.
