"Since the GM lemonado is not on the list - doesn't it mean that it is a few hundred vehicles below the list? Aren't you admitting that the Tundra is a much better than your lemonado? Man! these Chev zealots don't seem to make much sense sometimes!"
Maybe...I dunno. But then again my simple hillbilly brain seldom comprehends your enlightened logic. Where ever the GM 1500 is listed at-it's lower on the list than than your Tundra, isn't it? Aren't you admitting that the Tundra has had more compliants per unit sold than the Chevy per units sold?
Let's see if I'm getting this straight, Bama. The Tundra sells a fraction as many trucks as GM's 1500s. The little Tundra is outperformed by GM's 1500s in just about every aspect by which 1/2 ton pickups are measued. And the Tundra appears as number 23/25 on a NHTSA lemon list-the only fullsize pickup that does!
Yeah Bama...I'm beginning to see the light! LOL! What's not to love?? Chill out and have some lemonade-you sure paid enough for it!

Aren't you forgetting that the measure is complaints per vehicle produced.
Here is a pop quiz for you - If the Lemonado sells five times as many trucks, but has five times as many problems per truck as the Tundra - Which is the better truck?
Be careful - this is a trick question for GM zealots!

"The complaint index is based on a ratio of the number of complaints for each vehicle to the sales of that vehicle."
#complaints/#GMs sold=GMs not on top 25 lemon list
That's why they factored in sales and not just complaints. The Tundra had more complaints per truck sold (not produced as you claim) than any other fullsize pickup.

Where did the Lemonado wind up on the list. You seem to conveniently forget this. Didn't the Tundra finish higher than your lemonado? Man, sometimes you have to hit these GM zealots over the head with the facts!

Forget what? That the Silverado didn't end up on a top 25 lemon list that ranks vehicles based on a ratio of the number of complaints for each vehicle to the sales of that vehicle.
Stop it already-you nearly made me choke on my TV dinner with these last few futile posts!!

The F150 ended up on the top of the list. Where did the Lemonado end up? This is a trick question for Lemonado zealots.
Is this too painful for you? This is a simple question.

This is stopping NOW...
If you need to post insulting nicknames for the other guys truck to make your point, you need to find another way to make your point or take it someplace else.
Notes making reference to Lemonado, Tindra, Shakerado, etc... are not approriate.
Disagree all you want about the trucks, but keep it civil.

You seem to have overlooked closing this topic. I'm sure you did not overlook this one just because there is only ONE out of line poster here and therefore you can't protect him by directing your comments at a GROUP of users.
I, for one am disappointed with your performance as moderator. You do not distinguish between posts made in lively disagreement within a topic and posts made solely (and obviously, to most of us) to cause turmoil.
One person has posted 7 of the last 22 posts in THIS topic and you say NOTHING? To me, it seems your bias is obvious.
Instead of closing useful and interesting topics, why not address the problem?
PS. You posted your comments in post 6373 while I was typing. Glad you spotted the problem, but be consistent.

for finally taking action to get control back of these threads. I apologize if I offended anyone with my comments. Perhaps, we can now get back to talking about "real" issues with our trucks. Thanks again!
