2012 Infiniti G37. That son of a gun was quick. Before that a 2003 Cadillac CTS. This one almost got me killed a couple times. Before that a Mexico spec 2001 1/2 ton Silverado single cab step side. I really liked that one.

2011 F150 Lariat Supercrew 4x4 with the 5.0L V-8.

 

I love my Silverado but not gonna lie, that Ford was also a damn good truck. No problems whatsoever.

2002 Honda Odyssey.

It was a kind of amazing car. Never serviced any fluids except for oil thanks to my dad not caring much about maintenance. Traded it in at 204k miles for $1500. About 1k more than it was actually worth.

post-152831-145310147528_thumb.jpg2014 lifted powerstroke, bought it new and did all the mods. Loved it, will probably go down as the biggest head turning vehicle I ever own but honestly that shit gets old. Definitely going to keep my new Sierra more subtle. The F250 was fairly basic (XLT) so the new Sierra SLT I bought is much better as a daily. It fits in the garage, I can maneuver around town easily, park easily, etc. I do miss the torque and trans. This new 8 speed in my Sierra hunts for gears non stop. I've been through many new vehicles and I know they "learn" driving habits and get better but this thing doesn't have a clue what gear it should be in. I really didn't want to mod this thing too much (that's the whole point of selling my F250, wanted a new/nice half ton to keep mostly stock) but I think I'll have to do an e85 conversion and flex tune. Also, I could litter this post with previous Mustangs and other blue oval stuff but well, this is a GM forum so I'll just end it here

I had a 1997 Blazer that was written-off last winter, so I bought a 2015 Yamaha FZ-09 that I rode until I got my 2015 Sierra Denali. Now the FZ is just my summer/nice weather ride.

What were the biggest habits you had to change?

 

Coming from a 2012 Toyota Tundra TRD 4WD Double Cab Rock Warrior:

 

  • I am still trying to figure out this crappy transmission
  • Manual 8 way adjustable seats in Tundra more comfortable than leather power in GMC
  • Rear end gear ratio (3.42 versus 4.30)
  • Throttle tip in response is much slower
  • Using OnStar and in dash navigation versus Garmin
  • Longer wheel base
  • Driving with sport mirrors versus towing mirrors (I corrected this issue several days ago by installing new mirrors)
  • Filling up the gas tank less often on road trips (15.5 mpg (26 gallon tank) versus 20 mpg (29 gallon tank))

It's always been Chevys for me. My last truck was a 1999 S10 4X4 that had over 310,000 miles on it with the same engine and trans and didn't use a drop of oil, and unlike the toyota tacomas that I know of, the frame was as solid as the day i bought it!

 

My new Silverado is everything I hoped it would be and Im looking forward to another 300,000!

2010 Jeep Wrangler 2Dr.

 

Parking is much different

turning around in tight places is sooooo different

I burn way less gas in my V8 truck than I did in my V6 Jeep

I also can copout with the lack of room in the back seat excuse

I had to get used to the quiet ( Jeeps suffer from a lot of road noise not only from the wheels )

2012 CTS-V, 6sp manual. Such a gorgeous car and awesome power. Unfortunately not real convenient for hauling my 10 year old to school! The car drew looks and comments everywhere I went. I love the Sierra though. Probably more comfortable and way more practical!3dfc4a4be4d91fe8c880517a262df4dc.jpgbd4503d5ea6225f75c829f0956fb14ea.jpge437279762e9d2b2bd3f22cdb4cdf474.jpg
