1998 Chevy C1500 - 56k miles when I got rid of it. Ball joints 4 times. Front breaks redone 3 times. Tie rod ends twice. Front CV replaced drivers side 3 times. Upper control arm bushings replaced or worked on, drivers side - 4 times, passenger side 5 times. Tires replaced on front end twice. Total time in the shop - 17 days...

2000 Chevy C1500 - 48k miles when I sold it. Ball joints twice. Upper control arm bushings 3 times. Brake rotors replaced twice. In the shop 14 other times for misc front end issues. Total time in the shop - 22 days.

2002 Chevy 2500HD - 17k miles when I trashed it. In the shop 21 times with front suspension issues, horrible tire wear, brake issues, ball joints, steering issues, etc. Total time in the shop - 35 days.

This does not include the 2 Hummers (H2's) that I owned that were in the shop a total of 23 days together.

Fast forward to now.

3 Fords. Total time in shop 2 days. Oil changes, 1 radiator issue with my first F250 and AC repairs on my 2nd F250. No other issues especially with that SFA. Also I am much harder on my Ford's than I was my gm trucks because now I have heavier toys to tow around and move so that is proof to me.


So unfortunately I could not keep that gm junk any longer to see if it would have lasted, it was costing me too much money.
