Default Chevy Owner Ignorance

Has anyone else come across this?

My friend and I got into an argument today. I stated the fact that my truck is going to need front brake pads soon, his reply: "typical ford piece of shit" To which I replied: "so... chevy has unwearable brake pads?" It's comments like this that really annoy me. The area in which I live is full of die-hard chevy people. If you own anything but a chevy, its a piece of shit. No matter what it is. I'm a ford guy, always have been, but Im not afraid or ashamed to admit when I see a nice chevy. But no, the chevy guys around here wont do that, its like blasphemy to them.

About a year ago or so, I was at a wal-mart, in the parking lot getting ready to leave. A lifted silverado owner says to me: "Get a real truck."
So I paused for a moment. got out of my truck, touched it, kicked the tires, listened to the exhaust and I said: " I dunno... seems pretty real to me?" The guy proceeded to give me the stink eye as a did a posi burnout leaving the parking lot.

Theres a local kid around here that has a nova. And he always talks it up about how fast it is. my friend with a '89 5.0 challenged him to a race. He said he didnt want to degrade his car by racing a chevy. My friend said " So... in other words, you dont want to lose to a Ford?"

Does anyone have this problem? Or is annoyed by this?

i do the same thing to my friends who have chevys and they do it to me, but its all just jokes. i really do like one of my buddys truck, silverado z71, but i still jokingly rag on it. it doesnt really bother me, but if some random jack ass said something like that in the walmart parkinglot i would tell him to f*** off

I had a gm before i bought the ranger.

1- Brakes are so shitty, they aren't expected to pass 15 000kms. That includes pads and discs. The dealership thought i was yanking their chain when i said mine lasted just under 23.
2- The "flexible" on those 2.2 ecotecs isn't reliable, cheaply made and in a weird location, it is also expected to rupture quite fast, mine started ripping around 30000kms, if i had waited, i might have lost the whole line and cause good damage.

Of course, that's with canadian driving conditions, have i had been living in cali, the muffler might have laster longer.

I don't know about how the ranger compares, haven't asked about those two points yet.

I should take a picture of my rotor and brake pads that I just replaced on my Chevy, lol.

I'm a Ford guy through and through, but I don't really talk shit about the other brands. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. I've driven enough different kinds of vehicles to know what I need from them and that's why I got what I got.

I do poke fun at the Rangers every once in a while, but I do think they are the best looking truck on the road today, lol.

Well I think you handled the situation quite nicely Adam. So score 1 for the Ford guys. Thanks to you.
Silverado's are a rather impressive truck.

Kinda opposite here. I have had Chevy people say "I am a die hard Chevy fan but that is one nice ford."

I hate when people do that shit. It's so childish. And that's coming from a kid! I'm not a real big Chevy fan mainly because their fullsize's have IFS and their interior seems a little cheap to me. But if a truck looks nice, it looks nice. I've never understood why people go around bashing other peoples vehicles just because they don't like the make of the vehicle.

Never really get that here, everyone seems to respect a nice vehicle. Hell if I had the money I would be rocking a new Tundra.

Oh I get this everyday. I always think they are joking and start laughing at the bullshit that comes spewing out of their mouths, but they don't crack a smile. I live by the blue oval, but always point out nice trucks like rams and mark lt's and whatnot. When I talk to my buddy with a lifted Ram, I always say how nice it is.. cause it truly is fucking nice, but then he says some douchey comment like "yeah it's not a shitty ford" or something. When people say this I simply say "what makes them so shitty?" and they freeze up 8 out of 10 times. The other 20% say some stupid fact that they believe is true.
Must be something about them chevy's that just goes straight to the brain and sets the ignorant douche gauge to high.

If people had logical reasons for hating Ford's then it'd be different. Must 98% of the time they do something like what Steven said and just give some bullshit answer and act like they're all high and mighty.

Bottom line, Chevy took the bail out and Ford didn't.

So did Toyota, in two different countries, lol.

But then i get more hate from import owners towards american vehicles than brands vs brands.

I have to play the devils advocate a little here... I say that to anyone who owns a non-ford product regardless of the issue just to give 'em shit...

Chevy's interiors are good for work vehicles. But as anything else, no thanks.
