My neighbor has a Chevy truck that is about 3-4 years old, (6-cylinder Silverado) with multiple oil leaks. He bought an extended warranty, so the replacement of head gaskets, seals, etc will be covered, but he is bummed anyway. When I stop by in my Honda Ridgeline, he is even more bummed. He says stuff like "Why can't the US manufacturers do this?" It is so discouraging to see that American manufacturers are willing to throw this away. For example, the Chevy Avalanche looks cosmetically similar to the Ridgeline, with similar load-capacity and towing capacity, but with its solid rear axle, it rides like a truck, bouncing you over every bump. Want a car-like ride with 3/4 ton capacity and 5000# towing capacity? Get a Honda. As my neighbor said about US car companies "Are we trying to FAIL?" PLUS, The Avalanche costs more than $10,000 than the Ridgeline. Pretty sick.
