I'll have to agree with Guy as I must have been lucky over the years after some of the stories I've been reading here.  I've only had a few minor problems with the GM vehicles I've had over the years.  3 Chrysler cars all had engine problems with under 100M miles.  My Astro van ran up 201M and was still running great when I sold it last month.  The major problem and that was back in the 60's and 70's was rust.  If you had a car for 2 years without rust(at least in the rust belt of the country) you probably didn't drive much in the winter weather.    Ken

I have  been and am a GM man with everything but an Opel, I have had
real good luck.  The Opel (when Buick was selling it) was a piece of
dreck.  I have had CORVAIRs, Oldsmobiles and a number of vans that I had
very few issues with.  Perhaps is has to do partly with the dealership
that is doing the service rather than totally blaming GM.  I had a class
C motor home on a Chevy C30 chassis that I had for 19 years with nothing
major until the trans band snapped near the end and it had gone thru a
lot of mountain driving.  I find that one real bad experience can lead
to a life time of disgust but I never had one that turned me away from
the General.
