Why Chevy Trucks Suck: Reason #6,789,512

Chevy S-10

As if watching someone drive into a giant sinkhole isn’t entertaining enough, this Chevy splits in half as soon as it touches the water!

We often tout just how tough Ford trucks are, and lament the inferior competition. And some will undoubtedly call us fanboys for doing just that. But those of us in the know are well aware of the vastly inferior quality of those “other” truck brands. Don’t believe us? Just take a look at this spectacular incident involving a Chevy S-10 in Worcester, Massachusetts recently. Because this one is what we like to call a two ‘fer.

According to CBS Boston, a massive water main break caused some severe flooding recently in the central Mass city. Including this gigantic sinkhole, which our resident Chevy driver didn’t bother avoiding. Heck, he drove straight into the thing in spectacularly brilliant fashion. Why, you ask? Well, in a follow up interview with CBS Boston, the Chevy driver admitted that he was simply trying to avoid the gridlock caused by intelligent people (Ford truck owners?). People who knew better than to, you know, drive through a gigantic sinkhole.

“I was like oh no I’m screwed,” the driver said. “Stupid mistake, trying to get out of traffic I guess.” And so far, nobody is letting him forget it. The driver said that even the guy at the tow yard told him “you really are a bald idiot” when he went to pickup up his water logged S-10.

But that ill fated decision isn’t even the best part of this story, believe it or not. If you watch the video, you’ll undoubtedly notice that the Chevy pickup quite literally splits in half as soon as it hits the water. How in the world does something like that happen? The entire cab pops right off and basically floats off the frame. Could this have been a case of extreme rust, or just extremely poor build quality?

Either way, this is one of the most epic (double) fails we’ve ever seen. Which is saying a lot!
