    Ford is making pretty good vehicles now

    Wait
    I'm not defending the AFM problem.
    No way would I buy a GM 2007 on until that problem is resolved.
    I -we-were nearly broke in 2007 when I paid $2950 for a 1998 Suburban with 195,000 miles on...

    AFM-maybe 1,000,000 Gms sold with AFM??
    Just how many have failed?
    We only hear squeaky wheels? If 1000 failed 1,000/1,000,000 = 1/1000 one per thousand?

    Granted AFM not GMs finest hour...

    Seem to remember some Toyota related manufacturer-maybe built Diesel trucks-called Hino?
    What is your Hino-where did it come from.

    Yikes!
    I almost feel guilty we have had such good luck with the 98 suburban we bought in 2007 with 195,000 miles on it-it has been a winner-225,400 miles-still getting good mpg-
    Granted it leaks...

    Now a days the 1/2 SUVs are bringing better $$ -especially with that BIG BLOCK
