I have a 2020 red Trailboss and love it. I get compliments and stares everywhere I go. It's got 19k miles and will be going into the shop for the 3rd time. 1st time the Infotainment center needed replacing. 2nd time it was leaking fuel and all injector o-rings needed replacing. Now the 3rd time the rear off the transmission is leaking fluid big time at the drive shaft yoke!!!! I am a diehard GM man but this is getting crazy for a 55k truck!!!

Agree 100%. I’ve owned many US made vehicles and many from Japan manufacturers.
Zero problems from Toyota and Honda/Acura. Wish I could say the same about my Chevys😬. I love my Chevy trucks and Vettes and will continue to buy them. They’re all made in the U.S. so I suppose it’s in the engineering but I’m sure there’s many reasons.

Mine had an issue I have not seen anyone complain about that I can find. Last year I had two issues where it would not start, just crank and crank until the battery died or I got a low voltage warning. The first time I got out of the truck to take my wifes vehicle to work and decided to try my app to start it, and it fired right up. The second time I had my wife come jump me because I was in a parking lot, and it fired right up the last time I tried before I put the cables on it.

I took it to the dealer and they of course found nothing either time, suggested the battery was low (no shit it just cranked itself to death).

I found a TSB that mentioned the fuse block may not be torqued properly. They have pop up indicators that are supposed to show it is torqued properly, but they may still not be. I found all 4 of mine were undertorqued and after I adjusted them properly I have had no issues since.

I got out of a 2018 Tundra, and other than horsepower and performance there are days I question that move.

I've never owned a Japanese-made vehicle. I also did not have problems with my 1993 Chevy Pickup (14 years, 204,000 miles) ... nor my 2007 Chevy Pickup (4.5 years, 77,000 miles). Also did not have ANY problems with my 2011 Silverado (10 years, 180,000 miles). I have had my 2007 Corvette A6 for only 3-1/2 years (from 51,700 miles to 79,000 miles now), but no problems with it. Not even with the several Mods I've done (this car is SO EASY to work on.)

Japan Incorporated --where all of the companies and corporations work in close COLLUSION with the socialist government-- declared Economic Warfare on the United States decades ago. Their term for it, not mine. In several industries that I worked in, the jobs eventually went to Japan. That country also engaged in price-fixing, currency manipulation, product dumping-under-cost-of-manufacture, government subsidy to sustain profits, technology theft, and other unfair and/or illegal industrial practices.

Where do you think China learned all of these bad habits?

Take care👍
