2007 Chevrolet Silverado 4.3 V6 from North America
Poor ABS systems for all year Silverados
My ABS has started activating every time I apply the brakes. The only time I don't notice it is if I slam the brakes on. This started after my truck reached the 36,000 mile warranty. It doesn't matter if the road is dry or wet. When I apply the brakes, it's OK until I get to the very last part of stopping, then I feel it in the brake pedal and I hear the ABS kick in. This is really scary when you are behind someone and they put on their brakes, you apply yours and hope that you get stopped before you rear-end them.
My 2002 Ford Focus I had before I traded for the Silverado gave me problems as well. I took it in under warranty for the O2 sensor and the EPC valve. Then there's the stitching in the back seat started to unravel.
Maybe I should by a Toyota, American cars are crap with "quality". I think I am going to look at a Toyota Corolla or Camry and trade that 2007 Silverado off. GM has lost my confidence in them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Curious why you went from small cars to a full size truck, and now small cars again... sounds suspect.

I hate to agree, but I bought a 2000 Silverado 1500 about 2 1/2years ago to replace my 1978 Chevy C10 and my old truck was much better overall. Other than not being rusty, almost every aspect of my newer truck is worse than the old one, with the exception of power and gas mileage. At this point, I'd trade all the power of the 5.3 (along with the knocking and pinging and ticking) for the so-so mileage of the old quiet, smooth Chevy V8's. Our old '91 Camry just keeps plugging away without issues. From my perspective, give Toyota a shot.
