I am glad that you want to have an adult conversation. I am afraid that the Silverado owners in this topic really do not want to know the facts about Tundra vs. Chev. I don't want to start a flame war, so why don't you start a new topic? Something like "Tundra vs. Silverado" I would be glad to give you my opinion in an appropriate topic.
Please try to keep this discussion civil and avoid personal attacks. Thankyou.

contender if it was engineered and built by Toyota. I've no doubt it's a good truck when everything is working as it should. But I'm not going to pay $30K on a new "Fischer-Price" truck that has the same overall quality, feel and problems of a truck with a lot of years and hard miles on it.
Quadrunner500, perhaps the GMC folks don't have the time to call the NHTSA and file complaints - they're too busy haggling with lawyers, the BBB, GMC arbitration boards and trying to unload their GMCs. Not to mention creating their own GMC lemon websites, of which there is almost a complete lack of when we look at Tundra websites.

Anything made by gm is a lemon, especially in the pickup department. Just check your local classifieds and see how many people are trying to unload them. Even Consumer Reports rate them as a vehicle to avoid. Good luck on this one now.

Yeah, that blank post of yours pretty much sums it up! Why did Consumer Reports rate your truck as a used vehicle to avoid? Is it because of its superior quality?
Why didn't your silverado make the list? The list shows the F150 as number one (least troublesome). There are fifty other trucks after that. Where is the silverado? You keep refusing to answer this simple question. What is the deal?
