My understanding is we left Fiat due to non covered quality issues (remember, we do not warranty the vehicles past mfg. standard). We had been with them for 7-8 years when I hired on (don't know before that). Switched to GM, was with them for two years. Now going back to Fiat. To me, it speaks volumes.

Believe me, we are all about total overall cost/value.

I have owned them all. Have stuck with GM and Toyota. 04, 09 GM 13 Tacoma 05 land cruiser 10 Lexus Rx350. I won’t buy anything but 4x4. I sold both in the 90’s. I think they both make a pretty good product.

I think you have the 6 speed in that year model and it is a touch faster than the 8!

You are probably right...it'll snap your neck when you hit the gas! Just rolled over 150K and still no issues. Crossing fingers none come now that I see some other issues on this thread.

My dad drove his 95 Yukon for 450K and still sold it running. He's on a 06 GMC 1500 and has around 300K and it's still rollin well too

Man, the thing with GM LS is that even if you have a problem you can knock it out in your driveway with a buddy. Including engine and trans swaps. Check out ebay you can buy your trans or entire engine/trans pull out and just swap it. The same cannot be said for the Toyota.

Hell, when I had a single cab, I swapped an engine and transmission (5.3 / 4l60) by myself in the garage in 24 hours. Most of that time was waiting on my wife to help me take off and put the hood back on.

There is a reason why the most swapped motor today is the LS series. Check out most fast old school mustangs, Camaro's and trucks. Most of them are GM LS powered. It is the most versatile and power producing mill in production for the price.
