As an A.S.E. Certified master automotive technician with 25+ yrs. exp.  I can confidently say that Chevy vehicles are the most dependable, reliable & cheapest to maintain, over  ANY OTHER MANUFACTURER... FOREIGN OR DOMESTIC!  I have never bought a new vehicle, probabally never will. I always get the "castaway" cars & trucks, that some idiot drove around low on oil (thusly blowing up the engine) , or the older vehicles that the people with larger paychecks than brains are too proud to drive, because the car is "too old", OR "needs work" (usually meaning they drove the wheels off it, with a total lack of maintenence), or my favorite..."it's not in style anymore!"  Go right ahead fools....take on another car payment, and for what you spent on your down-payment, i'll fix your cast-off, and drive the hell out of it for another 100K!

    And YES.....I am still supporting the U.S. economy, by purchasing either new or used replacement parts. There are a lot of Americans that work within the auto industry, and not just at the new car plants either. Without the aftermarket, the auto industry would crumble faster than a stale cookie!

All I have to say is 2004 Mercury Sable with 302,000 miles and still strong.  All I have done is the obvious torque converter (these cars/Taurus were infamous for that).  I do NOT drive it easy but I do change the oil fairly regular.  It is about 60% highway mileage, and 25% stop and go. If your car is under 50,000 DO NOT talk about reliability.  I love my American made car!

Second Ford to get past 200,000 miles.

Instead of putting all this expensive extra junk in these cars. Lets get good mileage. They won't give us that because the oil companies own the car company's. Please wake up America.

Camaro has never been a dependable car, because it's designed for Piston Heads who don't care about maintenances, gas mileage, cornering ride, comfort ! All they care about is: How FAST their butt moves in 1st Gear! More GM fantasy.....

Boy was this article ever soaking wet! The Chevy truck is NOT a better choice than the F-150 Ford. The Ranger isn't even made any more, the Camaros were listed, but not the Mustangs? The Ford cars have much better reliability factor than the GM cars. The Prius is dependable alright, you can depend on it going in for repairs on a regular basis.

 

Methinks this article was paid for by Gm /Toyota.
