I work at a dealer an I’ve only seen one Aisin failure. I see far more emmisions failures than anything, DPF, sensors, etc!
Before I bought the MH I was looking for a 6.4 gas truck specifically to get away from an issue while on the road.


You are SPOT ON!!! I personally know a Top Mechanic and the Parts Manager at my local Dealer, they say the same.


So YOU had the only Aisin failure in your dealers history? Lol
Very ironic…



Lol , and you know they are all telling the truth, that's amazing only one failure per dealership. [emoticon]


Lol and after your recent dealer experience (on CF.com) you have the most reason to be skeptical! That was some next level stuff!



I'll share it briefly , took the truck in for the infamous V06 recall drag link replacement ,they called me nearly 5 hours later we don't have the part . Only to find out when I got home that they had changed my oil .[emoticon]

The worst part of it ,had just changed it a week or so ago ,plus they overfilled it about 2 quarts . Gotta love those dealerships .

i have owned all of the big 3. my 96 dodge was a nightmare. that does not mean i would not buy another one.
i keep an open mind and pick the one i feel is best at the time. last time it was an easy call. after living under the cp4 cloud for 9 years, i did not want another one. GM was the only choice at the time.


I also went with GM. Its all a compromise. While I am content with my choice. I believe GM has an inferior interior compared to the others.
I was willing to suffer with the spartan interior order to get better reliability and a stellar warranty.
Only time will tell if I made the right choice.
My last Duramax made it to 300K with limited problems.
I want to emphasize limited problems, not zero problem.
Meanwhile it seems it's the Ford guys and Ram guys who can't decide who has the better or worse trucks


Thanks for the opportunity to share a Duramax L5P video. And yes this owner is another died in the wool GM hot shot owner and switched to another brand.

Yea I guess I asked for it! For the record I am not a die hard GM guy.
I believe all 3 are making a decent truck.
My goal is to buy a truck and wear it out in about 10 years. I hope to get 300K out of my truck without and major repairs
Yes there are differences, strong points and weak points.
But in the end I would consider owning all 3.

A little more on the "Ball Joints" being bad. My truck is a pavement princess with no off roading no different than the guy in the video. Can't get much easier duty than my truck gets or his concerning ball joint wear.

^Yeah, the old “your ball joints are shot” diagnosis….it’s one of the common schemes by repair shops to generate revenue.
Take a relatively cheap/simple and easy to perform task (for a shop) that is beyond the understanding and abilities of the average non diy vehicle owner on any vehicle not under warranty for that component, and sell it as a “must fix, major problem.”

There are others but a saavy/dishonest tire/brake shop owner just licks his chops everytime he sees a solid axle truck pull up!!

Wait a minute here, I know for a fact that you drive on California highways all winter and commute North in the spring and South in the fall on I-5 in Northern California, which are similar to "off road" roads in other states.

No lateral stress like off road.

There's a lot of stress on the front end parts when towing a gooseneck/fifth wheel.
