We all know how hard it has been to find a TB at a dealer and if you order a new TB there is usually a long wait (some waiting months, particularly in the East, for a TB). And most dealers have suffered too, for all new cars, due to chip problems. I feel so lucky I got one "hot off the delivery truck" the day it arrived in August. For the heck of it I just checked online for 2 of the 3 Chevrolet dealers in our area. To check entire stock. One dealer had 47 new vehicles. The VAST VAST majority were Silverado trucks. There were 8 Equinox, 2 Blazers, 1 Traverse, 1 Camaro, and one Corvette ($78,900). I was surprised the Equinox seems to be coming in. THERE WERE ZERO TB's. The other dealer only has 12 new vehicles. 5 Equinox, 1 Blazer, 6 of the Silverado trucks. THERE WERE ZERO TB's. (These are dealers in upstate New York). Still hard to get a TB and for that matter most cars.

They are still hard to get. I took mine to the dealer for oil change, look for a rad leak that they say is not there. When I took it in, they had a cert used and one new one. Next day the cert was gone and the new one had temp tags.
They look fresh, the tech in them is good, reviews are good, it is well placed in the segment of other vehicles like it.

Proof right here... Car and Driver top 19 (19?) cross overs, comes on at 8, not so bad and reasons against it perhaps subjective, and could rand a bit better I think.

Reading the about the ones in front off the TB I would buy it all over again. Heck, a trip from Cincy to Nashville I rocked 35 mph avg doing 75/80 mph.

I totally agree with you. The models that were in position 1 thru 7 I would NOT buy before buying a TB. Sometimes you have to wonder at some of these reviews. It seems they did not like the price mostly on the TB. Then again, they used the base LS model as a comparison, but on others did NOT use the base model. The reviews certainly never seem to match sales figures. I mean the top sellers (Toyota, Honda, Nissan Rouge) all were rated like in position 13 or 16. What the reviews seem to like seldom matches what the typical buyer purchases. But it is like ice cream. Some like chocolate some like vanilla.

Just like a lot of other genres, reviewers are usually out of touch with normal people. They test and review hundreds of products, for free, for a short period of time. They are not giving you an honest review, but instead an unboxing.
