Each one has it's good and bad points, it is hard to find a universal mode of transportation these days that may meet all of your needs, unlike the horse or mule teams in the old west.

I think that trucks are all pretty much the same, just different shapes these days. I also think some people are maybe a little fanatical about certain brands and would love them even if they found them on the road dead .
A long time ago I quit buying vehicles by brand instead I would buy the vehicle best designed and suited for the job I needed it to do, part of this process also included researching the reliably of the vehicle. Every vehicle I bought did what I expected/required it to do, some I just kept longer, they were the good ones.

However my wife's 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has the phony engine noise because it warns other pedestrians there is a car nearby. Without it you can't hear the thing coming. Perhaps if it sounded like an Irish cop?
