That is total horse ****. Not remotely true. The reason why GMC is lower is because their vehicles typically come with more technology. More stuff to break, but most of it is actually customers that do not understand the technology. That combined with a poor dealership delivery experience where the features are not explained properly.Always heard GMC was last ditch effort to unload more vehicles with a different drill, wheels...etc. no suprise its rushed and poor quality.
There aren't that many diesel engines self-destructing and many of the ones that do have been altered in some way. To the extent it was caused by an injector, that could happen with any brand using the same brand of injectro. The transmission shudder issue was a huge problem. As to your problems, I'm almost a year and 12,000 miles in and the only problem I've had was a rattle under the dash that I figured out myself.Something is very seriously wrong with these ratings when Diesel engines are self destructing, transmissions are shuddering, and I have a half page of my own items I needed fixed in the first 6 months.
If you look at CR's breakdown it's almost entirely transmission issues. Given how prevalent the shudder issue was that's not surprising.You looked at the wrong list. You need to focus on the Consumer Reports list, to feel vindicated.
This list is per 100 vehicles, so your 1 drug it down a smidge, if you participated in the survey.
So much fail in this post I don't know where to begin. Seems like a troll post as the OP didn't use any common sense. Think maybe that A) this includes ALL CHEVROLET VEHICLES and B) the issues you listed aren't a representation of most owners? Chevy builds a reliable vehicle, that is pretty well know. It may not have the fanciest or highest quality interior or the most up to date tech but the bones are stout and know for lasting. Just because you have an issue that is 1 out of how many 100's of thousands of these trucks that are built and don't have an issue? Maybe think about something before posting a rant. These trucks are very reliable, ours hasn't even been in the dealer in over 3 years since we bought it and most can probably say the same thing from what I read on here. Thanks for the entertaining post, looking forward to reading all the replies!
Totally agree.The one that sticks out on that list for me is Honda being below average. In the early days Honda's reliability was far above average. But I think the average has improved a lot since then, maybe they haven't.
It’s always refreshing to hear when someone makes the switch from foreign to domestic, especially when it involves a butt ugly Tacoma that doesn’t even compare to the GM Twins.had a 2013 tacoma trd offroad. now have a 2017 canyon slt loaded with all the goodies including cocoa leather. no, it does not appear to be as offroad tough as the tacoma, but i love the comfy living room and all the technology. just had the tsb 18-NA-355 done on the tranny and seems to be a complete success. no more shuddering.
I think you could probably say the same thing about Consumer Reports.This JD Power "dependability study" is complete and utter BS. Tranny go out in 5000 miles? That's counted as 1. Engine blow up throwing the valves half a mile away? Counted as 1 issue.
But, if you don't like the way the volume dial feels? That's 1 too. The seat slightly less comfortable on road trips? 1. Don't like the color of the glove box? Yep, 1. They rate all issues/complaints the same, no matter how minor or major they are. It says very little about actual reliability.
If they weighted the issues it would probably be relevant but as is, JD Power is a joke.
