I formed this opinion when I compared their reliability data of the Chevrolet 1500 pickup to the GMC 1500 pickup. The results were radically different. These two vehicles are identical but for some minor styling differences.
I wouldn't trust their blender recommendation either.
As far as the Chevy & GMC, the two are actually built on the same assembly line. It was quite common when I worked for Chevrolet to have new Chevy trucks roll off the transport with Silverado emblems on the right side and Sierra emblems on the left or, a bowtie on the grill and a GMC emblem on the tail gate.
GMC Truck division actually designs the trucks. A Chevrolet plant builds them.
