I have a 2019 Silverado with 74k on it, only problem so far was a corroded emission control wire, which was mostly paid under warranty. No complaints and the pickup grows on me every day. I wasn't in love with it and still am not, but I'm sure happy with it.

My 2016 with 63K is the same. I haven't had the first problem out of it.

Toyota is the most reliable hands down.

Just got a 2022 gmc with the L84 5.3 hopefully no issues. But it seems L84 has the same lifter failure just like the L83’s. I was looking a Toyota Tundra 2021 but it was in Anchorage.

I've had a 2008 Tundra since new and it's been great. It gets used as a truck, pulling stock trailers, hay trailers, was used for pulling a 22' camper when we were camping, driving to hunting....not a daily driver, just a truck. It's got a few dents and lots of scratches in the paint from use. No complaints and lots of praise for it....I'm not running down any of the other brands, just stating that it's been a great one for me. I think it's about as reliable as one can be.

2014 Silverado 1500 4x4 ext. cab, bought new. 93K Still on first set of replacement brake pads. Couple minor repairs while under warranty. Only major out of warranty repair, $350 for new A/C condenser last summer. Everything still works, including heated front seats and remote start. OEM battery went teats up at 3.5 years. Dealer's replacement was a tad cheaper than Advance Auto Parts.

Best part, still does 20 or better, highway mileage.

Total for repairs since a new Chevy in 2002, 2006 GMC, 2010 Silverado and the 2014, all 4x4 ext. cabs: Probably less than $600. And the 5.3Ls are rockets.


If three or more people think you're a dimwit, chances are at least one of them is right.

Trading it in on a tundra.

Got it back out of the shop and it was an oil solenoid on the number 4 cylinder than gave out this time. Same cylinder as the collapse lifter and bent rod.

Not my problem anymore….

2011 Tundra, 5.7l 4x4, two batteries and one brake job so far. Sucker does like a gas station, even more so pulling a trailer.
Work truck is an ‘04 Tacoma PreRunner crew cab v6, just rolled 200k, had some type of fuel injection module go out at 165k that cost $600 to fix. That’s the only non routine maintenance item between the two of them. Hard to argue that kinda dependability. I do wish Toyota would come out with a 6cyl diesel for the Tundra...

I have the the same 2014 truck with the GMC sticker on it (Z71 Crew 4x4 SLT). 103k miles - still has original brakes. Other than tires and a battery, the only thing that has been done is the AC Condenser, which was very common. Mine still runs like new, no creaks, rattles, still very strong (been tuned and a few parts replaced), and it's wearing 33x12.5 and will still get 20+ mpg on the highway. I'll probably get the AFM disabled because I made it louder and it can drone a bit in 4 cylinder mode.

With the insane prices out there now I have no plans to do anything with it. I have several friends with in the same date range with 200k+ miles on them.

That's too bad about your GM. Frustrating having major issues like that.

Have you made the deal on a Tundra yet? New or used? They're solid trucks, but not perfect. So if buying used keep an eye out for the cam tower seep/leak, air injection pump, as well as a possible recall on the power steering pump and block heater cords.

I found a new 2021 that I got for less than what the used ones are going for. I know it’s not perfect but hopefully no major problems like I’ve had.

Just waiting on financing to be done and for the truck to arrive at the dealer….should be there any day.

I have owned a 2006,2009 and 2014 tacoma. The 2006 had a rear axle bearing go, bought it as a certified preowned from Toyota. and found out from a bodyshop friend of mine it was in a wreck. Dealer covered it up and sold it as a certified vehicle. 2006 had numerous recalls and cost literally thousands of dollars keeping it running. Front Oil seal, replaced drivetrain under recall, rear leaf springs and it had frame rust. The 2014 was trouble free.


I purchased a Tundra Sr5 TRD in 2017. It had a defective front Michelin not the trucks fault. It however had an issue keeping alignment. It was aligned three different times by 2 Toyota dealers and it was never right. It also could not drive past gas stations without stopping. 15 MPG , no thanks.

I’ll take the crappy mileage vs having the engine torn down like this GMC has had. Once it’s off warranty that will cost the next owner thousands to fix. There will be a next time…

The GMC only got 15-18mpg anyways so not the greatest

The GM AFM or DFM, same bad engineering just a different name...they lost me as a customer. In time, I expect either of those concepts will catch up with the truck owner.

My buddy swears there's 20 and 21 model trucks of several brands sitting on massive lots waiting for computer chips. Says all chips now are going into the newest models and when the shortage is over, there's gonna be a flood of new "used" trucks hit the market. I hope!!!!! Might pay to wait....usually does.
