    I find the best source for reliability info for a manufacturer is from the brand fan boys.

    Always accurate.

    Thats a good point.

    How many of the top 15 failed JD reliability tests were Jeeps again? I lost count. Maybe easier to list the Jeeps that didnt fail?

    Please quote where I'm claiming or trying to convince anyone regarding a level of reliability with Jeep, VW or Cadillac.

    Any Subaru owners and their head gaskets want to get in on this?

    I'm very confident with my personal choice of vehicles and the reasons why I own them.

    Convincing someone else to buy a Trackhawk, CTS-V or Golf R due to their level of reliability is not a priority of mine.

    discussing engine reliability in 2022 is almost as silly as discussing 0-60 times in 2022.

    Good point they're basically the same thing, that rush of excitement you get from driving a car with a reliable engine is right up there with a quick 0-60 time......


    How miserable do you have to be in order for this to be your reality.....

    Or maybe that's how I would feel if I also drove a Honda Ridgeline.

    Miserable?

    I can order a sub 2 second car online while taking a shit.

    I'm a $10 uber ride from any number of dealers that can get me one of the dozens of 3 second cars.

    What a time to be alive

    And yet, you chose reliability instead. What a time to be alive!

    I didn't choose anything. But electric cars make engine reliability a moot point just like they have made 0-60 discussions pointless

    I'm the furthest thing. Has anyone on beyond owned as many different brands as I have over the decades? It's a short list of brands I haven't owned and a lot of that has to do primarily to $$$.
