GM Brands You've Driven

32 posts in this topic

I was driving a Tahoe LTZ today and it made me think of something.. I've only been driving for about two years, never been a porter or anything like that, and I've driven a vehicle from every GM brand except Saab, Hummer, and GMC.

Buick:

'07 Rendezvous

Cadillac:

two '06 CTS's

(Ridden in a new CTS and multiple SRXs)

Chevrolet:

'07 Tahoe LTZ

'06 Cobalt SS/SC (own)

'01 Camaro Z28

'98 Camaro (owned)

'9x S10

'90 Cavalier

Pontiac:

'05 Grand Prix

'99 Grand Am

Saturn:

My grandma's 199x ugly, slow gold sedan (I need to test some new Saturns..)

At some time or another in the near future I'd like to drive a C5 or C6*, G6 GT coupe, Sky*, Vue (Redline*), 9-3*, and an H3*.

Oh, and * means probably not going to happen.

Chevy

C/K1500 Silverado (my daily driver when I first got my license)

Cobalt LS (rental on my honeymoon)

Impala LTZ (test drive)

Cadillac

'06 STS (my dad's)

Pontiac

G6 Base (test drive... unexciting test drive... I wanted to push a V6 and they gave me the SV)

Vibe (a friend's... felt like a Toyota but thankfully looked much better inside)

Bonneville SLE (test drive... I wanted this car but someone got it by now :( )

Saturn, GMC, Buick, Oldsmobile, Saab, Suzuki, Isuzu

"Modern" models only included, as I've driven too many to list older models.

Buick - Every model made. Parents have been buying from dealer for over 20 years. I drive all new income cars on my own when ever I want.

Cadillac - CTS (rental car from Cadillac Dealer), SRX, DTS (rental car from Cadillac Dealer), STS (test drove at Chevy dealer), DeVille (rental car from Cadillac Dealer)

Chevrolet - Every model made. The local Chevy dealer let's me drive any car I want on my own at any time on my own.

GMC - See Buick. Including both diesel and gas version of the trucks.

Hummer - H2 (used one at Buick Dealer mentioned above)

Oldsmobile (the most important brand) - All modern versions. Everyone of them where the best GM made from the given platforms at the time.

Pontiac - See Buick, though I never did drive the GTO (no real interest), or the Solstice (never had one for me to drive when I had the time to drive it)

Saab - 9-2 (Saabaru - not impressed. Too noisy and cheap looking)

Saturn - Astra, Ion, Aura

04 GTO

A lot of used ones at the dealership

Buick: Again, lots of used ones at the dealership, don't think I've driven one otherwise

Saturn: Same

GMC: Same

Hummer: none

Saab: none

Olds: 01 Alero, LSS, 98 Silhoutte

Never driven a Saturn, GMC, or Hummer. Avis has been my source of GMs to drive over the last 13 years or so... my first GM rental car was a '95 Ciera (the only Olds I've ever driven).

From Avis--

Buick: '98 Century

Cadillac: several '98-02 DeVilles/DTSes. Drove an '04 CTS and STS at a ride and drive event.

Chevy: a couple '02 Cavaliers, a few late '90s Malibus, an '05 Monte Carlo, 2 '04 Impalas, 1 '05 Impala

Pontiac: a dozen or so '02-04 Grand Ams, 2 '05 GPs

Olds: '95 Ciera

Non-Avis GM's I've driven (cars of friends and family, years ago):

'68 Camaro SS 396, '76 Electra coupe, '77 Caprice, '84 Caprice, '85 S10, '87 Pontiac 6000,'87 Camaro IROC-Z, '87 Grand National, '89 Chevy Corsica, '92 Blazer, '93 Bonneville, '92 Saab 900 Turbo, '91 Park Avenue

'88 Buick Regal

'04 GMC Sierra (5.3)

'99 Saturn SC

'94 Pontiac Sunbird

'03 Pontiac Grand Prix

'04~ Chevy Impala

'96 Chevy Cavalier

'92 Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am (V6)

'03 GMC Sierra (diesel)

Plenty more but those are the first ones to come to mind. Most I have driven on several occasions, but a couple were just once. The list does not include any test drives. The Impala and Grand Prix were rentals.

I've driven more GM vehicles than any other make combined. :o
