I have owned a lot of cars, from a lot of different manufacturers. Overall other than the POS F**d Triton equipped truck I have had good luck. I don't know you but I often wonder when I see posts on people with so many issues with cars. Having one car with the lemon law is a rare occasion, two is unheard of. When I see these posts I wonder, is this person really that unlucky or is he "one of those" customers.

I have had bad experiences with dealers, and I just go somewhere else, that's the beauty of capitalism. The dealer I have now is great and goes over and above with making sure I am satisfied.

I doubt seriously you'll be happy no matter what make you drive, you'll probably nit pick it down to the point where the vehicle becomes another POS. If you do find a good dealer and a vehicle you are happy with, great, but seems to me that probably won't happen. I am sure there are many people who could say John Deere is junk and the company sucks......

If you're having so much trouble I'll trade you my truck for it. And then I'll fix yours and be good to go.

Sounds like you need to document all of that and get a lawyer. If you feel you have exceeded the Lemon Law with that vehicle make them buy it back and get something else?
Or Got to another dealership and trade it in!
One dealer wants to treat you like your dumb,,pass it on,, trade it and don't say a word..
If its running and clean they will want to make a deal and move it along,,believe me,, they just want to move vehicles..

As someone posted earlier....their are good service departments and there are bad ones..do your homework and find one with a trusted review and go talk to the service manager before your even taking your vehicle there. You'll be able to get a good read from that.

Was this all the same dealer or several? There are a lot of places out there that have no clue what they are doing in every industry. Try another or post a new detailed thread on here and see if something can be narrowed down.

Heres my first insult to you: Reading comprehension/grammar. You type sentences like a 13 year old texting.

Second insult: Your not a quick learner if you keep doing the same thing over and over again for 6 years expecting different results. Seek out another dealer. If what you say is true, your truck has some kind of parasitic drain somewhere. All vehicles can have issues, but the lack of a resolution to the issue doesn't make the truck a POS. But honestly, I don't think we are getting the whole story here. If you think that Tundra will do half of what the 2500HD does then stop whining and go trade it in. But be prepared for 1/2 the payload and mileage that's no better if not worse in a truck that's only quality over the 2500HD is that its faster.
There is always enough time to do it over again, but never enough time to do it right the first time.

So quick to insult OP's grammar followed immediately by the basic grammatical mistake of "your" and "you're". Nice job, insults are really driven home by hypocrites!

But seriously though if you keep Fixing the same problem with the same "solution" over and over again why are you still doing that??? Look elsewhere or take it to another shop. It would only take me once to figure out that it wasn't the problem. If you replaced something once then why are you replacing it again.... Use some logic.
