Default Hall of Fame/Shame Tool Survey

"Searcher" wrote in message
In my experience's I have found that

A) Chevy ----BAD

I wasn't looking for brands of stuff other than tools, but if I included
other stuff the top of my list would include:

Toyota -- far and away the least troublesome and least expensive to maintain
brand of vehicle I've EVER bought. For appearance sake, I SHOULD replace my
Toyota pickup (pre-Tacoma) but it is very hard to part with the best vehicle
I've ever bought.

Honda -- the only possible competitor for my next vehicle. Never owned a
Honda car or motorcycle but it is listed here because I have two Honda
mowers, a Honda tiller, and a Honda snowblower and for 12 years they've all
started on the first attempt. Unbelievable!

Nikon -- I have more Nikon lenses than I can count, 5 film bodies going back
to 1973, a film scanner, and a digital body. None of them has EVER given me
any trouble. As good as Toyota is, Nikon would get my vote for top brand
that I've ever purchased.

At the other end of the spectrum, a brand that I'd never buy again is Mazda.
Bought one new and spent more than the purchase price in repairs. Totally
lost my business for good...quite a bit worse than the Chevys and Fords I've
