Looking for a new to me truck. I have been looking at the 3500 chevy or GMC. I own a Ford now but tired of the problems. What is everyone's input for hauling? I do haul a lot spring, summer, and fall. Thanks, if you don't want to comment you can pm me.

This day and time, I think you're going to have problems with all of them at some point.  I'm for Ford driver, I love it, but right now my check engine light is on because the DEF level sensor has gone out.

My husband says Fords are what is keeping him in business.  He hasn't been seeing any Chevy's.  We used to be Ford people but left them for good in 2006 due to nothing but problems.

pick the one that has a shop closest to your house. 

They are all the same.

I've had two different Fords and never had major problems. One was a 2002 that ran to 275k (could have gone longer but it was rusting out) and the current one is a 2014. I don't have expereince with anything newer though.

There is no prefect brand out there.

 

We currently have a 2022 F350. Now it's obviously newer but haven't had any issues with it (knock on wood).

Prior to that we had a GMC 2500 (gas). The one bad issue with it is that it would randomly drain/ruin batteries with no rhyme or reason. I don't know how many times we had it into the shop and they could never figure it out.

Husband currently has a GMC 1500. During the winter months, it barely starts. Which doesn't make any sense b/c it's parked in a heated garage. He's had it to at least 4 different shops over the last 2 or 3 years and no one can fix it.

I drive an Chevy Equinox on the daily. Have never had a problem with it and just went over the 100,000 mark (and probably just jinxed myself).  I drove a Ford Fusion prior to that. Never had any issues until I totaled it hitting a deer.

We ended up with another F350. We bought a 2022, had a good price tag and got a good trade on ours. Really nice truck, seems beefier than our 2017. After doing a bunch of research all of this big trucks have issues and I'd rather deal with Ford's issues I guess. I'm so used to pulling our trailer with a Ford and I love how it tows.

Our thought is Chevy make a town truck they are a little lower to the ground. They ride smoother. They are more like a car. Ford builds a country truck. They set up higher and are heavier built.  A few years ago people would buy a Chevy & before they could put a hay bed on it they had to have heavier springs put on them. Our Ford is a 2022 F350 & it gets better mileage than our friends 2022 - 3500 but of course that veries from truck to truck

I have had GM trucks since 2001, and cars ever since i could drive. My dad worked for GM so i get the discount. my first diesel was early 2000. i had a 07, 21, 22, and now a 24. i have not had issues with any other than maintenance. love my new 24 3500 denali. rides great, pulls great. I only put airbag in the 07, it was a 2500 and i had purchased a Lakota 15SW with slide, 3H. I had a 15 dodge 2500, hates that thing.

I  haul with a 2005 Chevy dually, 8.1. It has low miles (127000) so I'm trying to make it last as long as I can. When the time comes to replace it I will most likely stick to a Chevy. Had one of the Fords with the diesel 6.0 and that soured me on Fords. 

Chevy now has a 6.6 gas engine. I haven't heard anything bad about them so might be worth your time to check out.
