to start of this debate i will let my oponent start off why they think fords are better than chevys


I will use this round to establish (1) definitions, (2) purpose of the debate, (3) debate parameters, and (4) argument structure in light of the fact that my opponent has failed to do any of these things. I should not have to use my charcter limit because of Pro's failures.

1. Definitions.

A. Ford: Ford Motor Company and their vehicles.
B. Chevy: Chevrolet and their vehicles.

2. Purpose of the Debate/BOP

The BOP is obviously split equally.
To conclude which is "better," two aspect will be argued:
A. That the majority of Ford/Chevy's vehicles are superior to their Chevy/Ford counterparts.
B. That the company itself is superior (for whatever reason).

3. Debate Parameters

A. 8000 character limit
B. No semantics.
C. No new arguments in the 4th or 5th rounds.

4. Argument Structure

Round 1: Definitions, Purpose?BOP, etc.
Round 2: Arguments (and arguments ONLY).
Round 3: Rebuttals of previous round's arguments and any new arguments.
Round 4: Rebuttals.
Round 5: Rebuttals.

Back to Pro.
Debate Round No. 1


so from what you have stated that chevy is truly better than ford

has been in business since 1903

has been in buisness since 1911

now that ford has been in business longer this does not mean that they are superior to chevy since ford has been in longer this has given chevy the time to review fords mistakes and see what has failed in the past


Problems with new technology and complaints about three redesigned models - the Explorer, Fiesta, and Focus - dropped Ford Motor Co. from its perch as the most reliable U.S. automaker, according to a closely watched annual survey of vehicle owners by Consumer Reports magazine.

Ford fell from 10th to 20th place among 28 major auto brands in predicted reliability for the 2012 model year, magazine officials said Tuesday before announcing their findings at a Detroit meeting of the Automotive Press Association.

Ford was displaced as the most reliable U.S. auto brand by Jeep, a Chrysler nameplate, which ranked 13th. The top nine spots were claimed by Japanese brands: Scion, Lexus, Acura, Mazda, Honda, Toyota, Infiniti, Subaru, and Nissan. Volvo, in 10th place, led European automakers.


For Chevrolet General Manager Jim Campbell, this data illustrates the peace of mind Chevrolet and OnStar offer customers:

"At Chevrolet, we have significantly reduced customer warranty claims over the past few years, as we continually strive to make the most dependable cars and trucks on the road. A key part of that success is OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, which helps Chevrolet and our customers keep vehicles in top running condition."

OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics automatically reports the status of hundreds of diagnostic checks performed on key vehicle operating systems.

The results are sent via e-mail to the vehicle owner each month, with red, yellow and green icons indicating the operating status of their vehicle. The e-mail report also provides maintenance reminders based on the vehicle's current odometer reading, remaining engine oil-life and other relevant vehicle ownership and OnStar subscription information.

Since the program began in 2006, OnStar has sent a total of 122 million vehicle reports to subscribers. This represents tens of millions of data points engineering teams utilize to constantly improve the quality of Chevrolet cars and trucks. In addition, these reports provide a convenient way for individuals to monitor the health of the key systems in their vehicle.

"These monthly reports offer assurance to customers that their vehicle's key systems are in good working order," says Tony DiSalle, Vice President of OnStar Sales, Service and Marketing. "In addition, these reports help customers to monitor their preventative maintenance needs – and to avoid the cost and inconvenience of unnecessary repairs."

For Chevrolet owners, the OnStar Vehicle Diagnostic reports in January found:

  • 11.3 percent of vehicles were due for an oil change, which can impact both fuel economy and engine life.
  • 35.8 percent of vehicles had at least one tire outside of the recommended range for tire pressure, which can impact both fuel economy and vehicle handling.
  • 3.7 percent of vehicles reported the need for their first tire rotation, which prevents irregular wear and premature tire replacement.

Chevrolet vehicles, including the Malibu, are backed by GM's 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty.

His entire ford argument is copieD and pasted from this site:

His entire Chevy argument from this site:

There is one last paragraph at the end where he posts a link, however the link does not work.

He does not credit either of these sources.

I will post my arguments in the next round, giving my opponent a chance to form his own arguments and cite his sources.
