Friend of mine purchased a 2016 GM 4x4 ext cab last summer and with likely under 25,000 km's it has been in the shop for a new rad, new brake lines and to have the speakers replaced. He knows I am not a fan of GM so I wouldn't doubt he is also holding some things back on me as well. He did mention something about a vibration but thinks it's tire related,,,,,,,,,,yeah right. Needless to say, he is disappointed knowing the these failures are not due to abuse nor rust, just shitty GM parts and pieces. Is it any wonder, both in the U.S. and Canada that GM is lagging behind Ford and Ram, even with all the incentives they constantly run.

hell that is not to bad my last z71 had already had its 1st full fr end rebuild and was only burning 1qt every 3k mi at that point . total junk

they are all crap but at 96k my ford has only burnt up a heater switch and a o ring on some radiator hose went out

not the body is junk bumpers are all rust and starting to get some tan peeking through left fender the bumpers were rusting yr 1 and that is ok according to fore they wont cover on a 9 mo old truck unless there is a hole . fucking joke  .

I want a new truck actually thinking on keeping the 13 for a work only because it has been so issue free and I have trashed the body and int pretty good .

GM sold way more trucks than fiat. Get your head out of your ass Irv. Rams are junk.
