Price is huge. I got more bang for my buck with Ford. Saved thousands, plus got thousands more in features. I have owned Dodge and Ford, and the total difference in ownership experience has been huge, in favor of Ford. When pricing out trucks the GMC fell short in quite a few areas. Power and features were the most significant. Although I cannot speak to the long term owner experience of a GM not having owned one, at first glance they just don't offer what Ford offers, criticize Ford's technology yet are struggling to offer the same technology years later.

GM - took over $800 million dollars to stay afloat. Sent its CEO to congress to lobby for a $1 per gallon federal fuel tax that would be handed over to GM to further develop battery powered cars. Went on national TV and told America that it paid off its TARP loan early when it fact it used an additional TARP loan to pay off the first.

And despite it's $1.6 BILLION essentially interest free loan, they still can't produce a car a reliable as Ford at a reasonable price.

**** general motors. They're dead to me.

Well apparently I didn't make a good impression the other night.

I hate giving up but I hate to be annoying so either way I'm ending up pissed off at myself.

Just back from Hawaii. One of the best vacations I ever took. Don't even ask me why we spent the last day on the island looking at vacation properties with a realtor...
