I have had several other non-Fords besides the Tahoe.

I have had a 1978 Chevy Monte Carlo that was not a bad car but kept chewing up plastic pieces that were in the trans, a 1981 Pontiac Grand Prix that was otherwise forgettable, a 1984 Nissan Maxima that I loved (had the 240Z engine which was a dream :drool: ), a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV, a 1994 Toyota something, a 1996 Honda Accord, a 2000 Chevy Blazer that had a bad habit of dying while at highway speed, a 2001 Buick Rendesvous, a 2002 Kia Sportage (that was the piggest POS) and a 2005 Buick Rendesvous.

For the most part, they weren't bad cars but some of them were better than others.

I've had my share of non-Fords. None of them would I want to own again, except maybe one.

1964 Dodge D-100 PU. Crap
1966 Chevy C10 Deluxe. Gas hog without any power :( .
1959 Rambler Station Wagon. $25.00 transport that was excellent on gas, had O/D :) .
1973 Chevy C10 Cheyenne Super with 454. Complete under achiever and a real POS :rant: .
1967 Mercedes 280 SEL. 4 door sedan that drove fantastic. I'll never buy another however :stop: .
1984 Buick Century Station Wagon. Drove great, but totally unreliable after 50K miles :stop: .
1983 BMW 533i. I'd take another if they were still in production :thumb: .
2008 Mazda Tribute. Yeah, I know it's really a Ford. But the name says otherwise. :angel:

1986 Dodge Aries: used, no power but reliable and good on gas

1989 Dodge Dakota: used, Had it for a few months most of it at the mechanics

1988 Chevy Beretta: used, nice power and loaded one of my favorites

1999 Pontiac Sunfire: First new car, loved it needed more power though heavily moded

2004 Pontiac Vibe: New, liked it when we lived in the city, hate it in the country now. bad winter vehicle.

2005 Ford Escape: used, didnt want to buy a Ford told myself I would never buy one..... :blush:

Far too many in 12 years! :wall:

1991 Honda Accord Sedan 2.0i. :roll: Don't we all love our first own car? Crap anyhow.
1993 Volkwagen Passat Estate TDI :stifle: Don't mention it.
1999 Volvo V40 Estate TD :thumb: I would by it again, though it's as sporty as a tied up cow.
1997 Alfa Romeo 146ti :shades: Hatchback racer.
1976 Alfa Romeo Alfetta 1.8 Sedan (which I still own) :heart:
~1990 Alfa Romeo 155 2.0 Twin Spark :doh: 7 pre-owners! 100,- € deal, but got me through the winter.
1996 Fiat Ulysse 2.0 turbo :cuss: One good reason for never buying a Fiat again.
2003 Skoda Octavia Combi TDI :bill: No bad car. Didn't like it nevertheless.

and that Ford then... :thumb:
