      Hey Scotty can you look up the 2008 Ford Edge brake issues, make a vid please? I'm sure you've worked on this. There is hundreds of reports out there. They randomly go out and should be recalled!

        I dont like GM cars. But the pickups have been very good for me. Fords are probably the best however. Best SUV is a 4Runner.

                  Your wrong! 70s or 80s was not when went bad. After 1998 is when they went to trash. The reason why people keeps buying them cuz they look better than a Ford. Ford went to trash when around the 80 or 90. They can't design a better body style then GM which is pretty sad. Only thing that is worth buying from ford is there Mustang and there truck 3/4 or 1 ton anyways. every thing else is trash. Ford was the worst with there ford explorer around 1990 tho 2005. Had nothing but transmission issues. So if you are going to go around and tell people about GM this GM that. Then your not 100% honest mechanic. A honest mechanic will tell us the truth about both sides. I don't see that many videos of you talking about Ford.

                      1984 2.85speed s 10 odometer stopped in 1998 at 671k kms my 1991 Silverado 5 spd 4x4 787k kms my 2005 gmc Sierra 5.3 4l60e 680k kms and still running fine.... All of them my wife's Buick 2010 enclave 478k kms also runs perfect.... We live on the road and we do our fluids religious and have no problems. Yes they have got cheaper in some areas but better in others it all boils down to a choice. If you take care of it it will take care of you. Scotty just likes to hear his own voice I think and should really look at things with an open mind.

                                  Was expecting more from the GMT-900 SUVS could’ve atleast gave us those PowerFold 3rd row seats, the next GM Gen SUVs are coming soon but their innovations are what Ford has been doing since ‘03...

                                    Ha my 5.3 in my Sierra runs like a top. Faulty 4x4 switch, rust up the wazoo, bad climate control motor, fuel gauge doesn’t work, once in a while the speedometer sticks. Ha doubt I can buy a new frame.

                                      Hard to find pS leak......may be the pressure switch.....couldn’t find it until the steering wheel was turned back and forth......that’s when it leaked

                                        My 08 Raydo work truck is great. Solid engine, tranny was re call replaced early in the trucks life and has been sold almost 300k. Change oil and make sure your cooling system is good and it will go for ever. Toyotas on the other hand you can change oil every 40 thousand k and run em off Kerosene and the things will just go and go.

                                                GM PICK-UP TRUCKS made in Oshawa Canada where the best in quality/reliability hands down. Look it up. SUVs like Suburbans Tahoes, Escalades, and Sierra Crew Cabs are made in Mexico. My 2006 Oshawa GMC Sierra SLT 4x4 Crew was the BEST truck that I never should have sold 😭 I've bought 3 new Sierra 4x4s after Oshawa closed and they don't compare.

                                                    Scotty, you mentioned GM's ignition switch, how about a video on the Takata airbag fiasco - the largest recall in history that has killed several people and they still haven't fixed all the affected vehicles? Or are you simply here to bash AMERICAN vehicles while collected a check from Asian automakers?

Like playing roulette with your paycheck.The majority of people buy absolute crap. Btw, I worked for 15 years in most of the midwest auto plants and have horror stories.

The only people still buying GM Ford and Chrysler are old white people that don't know any better. That's what they grew up with and ya can't change that mentality.
