Every engine will have issues, every truck will have issues.
I certainly agree with you that every vehicle will have issues at some point..But working at a parts store, I have to disagree in a sense - there are some vehicles that are just prone to some issues (either by design flaw or whatever else), like cavaliers and their muffler straps for example (although a rather small replacement).
Surely each of the generations have their own problems. But I'd rather have smaller/less expensive/easier common issues than the other way around. Just curious as to what kind of common issues they all had.
What year did they start enforcing DPF's strictly?
