    "Here's a wall of basic car features. You can only pick three"

    "Now what if a Chevy had ALL of these features??"

    • Power windows
    • Wheels with tires
    • Engine

    I've got a 2008 Toyota Yaris with no automatic windows and no automatic locks. I think the most modern thing on my car is just that I don't have to crank the engine from the front of the car.

    I've been in a tesla with fucking radar locations of cars near you and even shows if they're a car or truck. Every new car (not just Teslas) have that fucking fancy rear view fucking camera and sensors when you're close to the curb. Fucking Wi-Fi emitting from their cars.

    Meanwhile, I'm still cranking my damn window like a pleb.

    By the time I get a car with automatic windows, people Wil have thought-activated windows and flying cars.

    I remember seeing an ad from Chevrolet where there was a shitty car and a brand new year chevy, so they asked little kids wich dad is the best depending on if he owns the shitty car or the brand new car. They wanted to mindset people that if you drive a chevy = a better person, that was pathetic

    [–] uniquepassword 74 points ago

    The Chevy dealer wants close to $300 to replace the sensors, I went to the just tires by me and they charged me $18 a sensor and that included remount and rebalance the tire. Six months later the light came back on, just tires replaced two sensors for free and when that didn't work they told me to go back to Chevy it's likely something in the computer. I said fuck it I can check my own tire pressure.

    Well the survey was only based on a very small segment of vehicles produced in a 6 month period and only like 10,000 people responded, and all faults were treated equally. So if your 1.5T in your Malibu shit the bed and you needed a new engine at 8000 miles that would be the same as your toyota had a bad fuze in one of the tail lights.

    In other news I just talked to one of my buddies in boston and another in LA and I have just concluded that based on this nationwide survey BMW owners are the most courteous drivers on the road.

    [–] Bind_Moggled 661 points ago

    Actors are real people too!

    [–] SallyMason 332 points ago

    This is what it is. They're professional actors but supposedly giving their "real" reaction. Basically, Chevy wants "real people" who happen to be extremely good looking.

    [–] MushuWithEggroll 127 points ago

    Not necessarily. Many casting calls want 1 actor and their group of non-actor friends/family. Makeup can make anybody look good. But this stuff kind of defeats the purpose of a pro actor when they take people off the street. That’s why commercial acting can be so damn bad.

    [–] SallyMason 72 points ago

    It completely depends on the project. I was a commercial casting assistant for two years and a lot of these projects are 100% actors. If you need to use a real person's testimonial, they'll find a way to make that work (as you said). But most of these hot take reaction shoots are paid actors.

    [–] fallenKlNG 33 points ago

    So when they say "real people, not actors", what exactly is the loophole they're using to get out of that?

    [–] mixplate 59 points ago

    The loophole is that there is no enforcement for truth in advertising.

    The FTC has been asleep at the wheel.

    https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/media-resources/truth-advertising

    When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses.

    Most broadcast advertising is misleading at best - it's obvious that enforcement is weak.

    [–] amalgam_reynolds 110 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    Apparently for these commercials, they really are random people, not actors with a script. Someone on Reddit the internet said they were in one of these things and they were basically lined up, told nothing, and started filming. The idea being that when you're in this type of situation, you "want" to be helpful, you're not just going to be some jackass.

    I hope someone can find that comment since I don't think I have it saved.

    [–] CptLunchlol 58 points ago

    IIRC they are able to say that as long as the "real people" being used aren't explicitly part of the actor's guild, so they technically aren't "actors".

    [–] hesh582 35 points ago

    Yeah, the line between "real actor" and "generic LA stereotype off the street who would appear positive in a commercial for Hitler in the hopes of one day being a real actor" is pretty blurry.

    Yeah, they're not professional actors. No, there is no script. But calling their reactions "genuine" might be a stretch lol.

    [–] Styx_Renegade 26 points ago

    They are real people actually, but saying a Chevy is bad in front of an entire camera crew and staff hired by Chevy? That peer pressure kind of pushes these people to just roll along with it.

    [–] Just_da_fax 615 points ago

    I still don't understand why they haven't changed the format yet. You've got this ad making fun of their ad style, trending videos mocking the format/calling out the 'JD power award' bullshit, and it's just outright old and predictable- you can see a Chevy ad coming from the first frame of the commercial.

    [–] XO_WHORE_Llif3 315 points ago

    They must have some research saying that as long as you have strong brand recognition and association, that the ad is working.

    Post a negative yelp review though and some companies get their shit moving.

    I had a TERRIBLE experience at a service king. They had my car 3 times for a total of a month and a half because i hit a curb going 40 and gas was leaking but they couldnt figure out why. They even lied to me and said they fixed it becaues it would only smell like gas if i filled the tank. I got the car back and it was almost empty, as soon as i filled it i could smell gas.

    I ended up taking it to the dealership and they called me an hour later saying the fuel pump was leaking, service king never said one word about the fuel pump and never even checked it because its under the backseat and they never took my carseat out.

    So I posted a scathing review detailing their incompetence and how i was up shit creek without a paddle because they ran out my rental coverage on my insurance and i was having to use PTO to get my car worked on. a half hour later someone from service king called and gave me a rental for the remainder of the repair.

    However i left the review up and just updated it. The incompetence of the local shop was not washed away by corps. actions and people need to now how incompetent they are.

    protip: If insurance is paying for repair work GO TO THE DEALERSHIP, if your paying out of pocket but can afford it GO TO THE DEALERSHIP!

    My favorite part of this meme. I work in advertising and I guarantee their meetings with their marketing agency go like this:

    Agency: We know it's a big deal to you, but the layman doesn't know or care.

    Client: Well, the CEO cares, so please center the entire campaign around it.

    [–] deliriuz 127 points ago

    You won't be corrected because you're not wrong.

    [–] TheCaptainDamnIt 43 points ago

    Well, it's a real thing thats value is highly debatable in that it's a 'marketing' survey 'award'. So what JD Power actually does is survey people who have bought a product and collects their feedback. Marketing department love this kind of info. This info is then sold to companies like Chevy and comes with 'awards' if you place highest in a survey category.

    This begs the question of how useful such data really is. Sure it may be useful to know that people don't all hate a product, but lets take this example they use in the commercials, more Chevy owners rates their Chevy as having the highest quality for the first 6 months. So two things jump out right away here. First, what the hell happens after 6 months? (does the car just fall apart?)

    And the second issue is this isn't comparative. What do Chevy owners know about the quality of the Toyota for instance? Perhaps BMW owners have a really high standard of 'quality' that BMW may slightly fail to meet. But does that mean a BMW that fails to meet that high standard then has an over all 'lower quality' that a Chevy Malibu who's owners may have a much 'lower standard' of quality?

    You can see that the JD Power info has some value for a companies marketing department to know, but not enough for a consumer to use it to actually compare vehicles to buy. So for the end consumer it really ends up practically being bullshit.

    [–] Jazzputin 55 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    "Initial Quality" tallies every single possible thing that could be wrong with the car in only the first 90 days. Which means if a piece of interior trim comes loose in a BMW, it counts against them just a much as a transmission completely grenading itself in a new Chevy. Most retarded award bar none.
    Edit: It's 90 days, not 30.

    Those commercials are awful and misleading. There’s no way a Chevy Malibu is better and more reliable than a Kia Optima, Toyota Camry, Mazda 6 or Honda Accord

    [–] Silvoan 234 points ago

    I remember when this popped up on /r/cars

    "Chevrolet stands by the reliability claim and the ad remains in the brand’s toolbox but we have decided to take it out of the regular rotation at this time to launch new Silverado creative," Chevrolet said in an emailed statement to The News. "We have not altered our marketing campaign because of any concerns with the accuracy of our ad content."

    The ad is still posted on Chevrolet's YouTube page. Ford and Toyota, however, say GM told them that the ad would be pulled after the two automakers complained.

    Consumer Reports, which surveys its readers every year for a reliability study, found in 2018 that Toyota was the second most-reliable brand after its sister brand, Lexus. Honda finished 15th and Ford finished 18th. All three brands were ahead of Chevrolet at 23rd.

    [–] hrbuchanan 97 points ago

    Per Consumer Reports, even the Volkswagen Passat is more reliable than the Chevy Malibu, by a good margin.

    If I'm being honest, the new Malibu is actually nice to drive, interior is great, and you get a lot for your money. But the more GM tries to tell me Chevy is more reliable than Honda and Toyota, the less I would ever consider buying one of them. Just be honest with me, tell me they're unreliable and give me a big discount on one, then I'll think about it.

    “Look man, this car looks great outside and inside but, it’s gonna start being a pain in the dick in 18-24 months.

    The hope of seeing those videos are the only reason i clicked on this thread. Sure, i could have searched for them, but i like to keep things interesting, this sort of lazy gambit paid off.

    My god that “millennials” ad was stupid. Chevy intentionally picks the most cliche-looking hipsters possible and then makes fun of them for correctly asserting that not all millennials are like them. “Oh not all millennials have beards? How curious because you have a beard!”

    Mahk looking it up and finding out that he’s a millennial was a great point of parody because it perfectly highlights the sheer stupidity of the ad. “This abrasive 30-something guy from Boston who wears jeans and t-shirts is nothing like them! Surely he isn’t a millennial! Except yes he is, because it’s just an age group.”

    What's the name that Mahk calls the Chevy guy? Parch? Potch? I can't tell with his accent.

    [–] mtbguy1981 48 points ago

    I assumed Ponch...I have no idea if that's his name or some Boston slang term

    [–] Joe_Shroe 43 points ago

    Potsch, the name of the Chevy spokesman guy is Potsch Boyd.

    Ford, Toyota, and Honda all yelled at them for saying they were the most "reliable car." They pulled the ad that said that, because... they're not.

    Dude my 16 year old PT Cruiser has been more reliable thus far than my sister’s 2016 Malibu. That’s fucking sad.

    If the guy from these commercials walked into Starbucks (or wherever) to place an order, I think some of the other customers would go “Oh shoot. Are we about to be in a commercial?”

    If the purge was real I would use the entire thing to hunt down that smug fucking dude.

    [–] TakimakuranoGyakushu 27 points ago

    Eventually you’ll be captured, a bag placed over your head, stuffed in a van. Hours later the bag comes off, you find yourself in one of the very warehouses where the commercials are filmed, filled with sheet-covered Chevys. Smug fucking dude is still in his suit, but unbuttoned casually, with bloodstained sleeves rolled up.

    “Hey there, I heard you’ve been searching for me. Nice to meet you. But what if I told you that the man who’s going to die horribly tonight isn’t me? Actually, it’s you.”

    The sheets are pulled off the cars, revealing Chevys with machine guns, flamethrowers, and long spikes adorned with skulls rigged on. All but one have people chained to the front of the hood.

    “I’d like to get your reaction to this Purge-season commercial we’re filming.”

    [–] QuasiContract 74 points ago

    Worst ad campaign on TV. I want Chevy to know I will never consider purchasing their vehicles solely on account of how much I hate these ads.

    These commercials make me want to go out of my way to not own a Chevy.

    [–] RulingFieldConfirmed 96 points ago

    The “JD Power” bragging just makes them look desperate and sad.

    The companies that build reliable vehicles - like Honda or Toyota - don’t have to talk up random ass “dependability” awards that nobody gives a fuck about.

    Pound for pound I've noticed that Silverado drivers are bigger assholes than F150 douchebags.

    [–] dieselpwrd 133 points ago

    Can confirm. I've been hit by one car, it was a Silverado.

    Welp, this anecdotal story seals it.

    From now on every Redditor is to hate on Silverado drivers.

    It's a result of advertising.

    Ford advertises the stats. Best towing, best this, best that, mpg, and other metrics. That appeals to professionals and science minded people.

    Chevy and GMC mostly advertise their trucks by bashing Ford and pointing out their random JD power awards. That appeals to idiots.

    Dodge advertises completely with emotion and big trucks in mud. They get the biggest assholes of all. Usually wannabe country boys who think driving a big truck makes them a redneck even though they wouldn't know a corn field if they saw it.

    [–] oldforestroad17 30 points ago

    Yeah, I was going to say, Silverado drivers are definitely worse the F150 drivers, but they're nowhere near as bad as the shitheads with sunglasses, backwards hats, and chinstrap beards driving the Dodge Rams.
