Do you know a lemon magnet?

What I mean by this is someone who no matter what new truck they buy, within 6 months they decide they hate and it becomes the worlds biggest POS.

For example, Let call my friend Bob. Bob buys an 07 armada, loves it for the 1st six months then for unknown reasons begins to hate it like most of the other 29 trucks he has owned. When I ask why he hates it I get "tons of problems!" "Like what?" I say Then he start with his well rehearsed list.

Well when you turn the blower on high the vents slam shut!
Check engine light keeps coming on
Dash rattles
Visor broke
Tows like ****!
Has no power!?!?!?
Bottom line is he hates is and thinks it’s with worlds biggest POS.

What I find even more strange is he trades it in and buys a 2006 tundra with a 4.7 (I think) and he claims it tows circles around the Armada? How can this even be possible? He says the 2006 Tundra goes up hills better then his 07 armada ever did?

I just don’t get it. Remember it's a 2006 tundra not the new ones!

I know a guy who trades his vehicles in nearly as often, but he doesn't complain about them, he just wants something different.

My Grandma doesn't end up buying lemons, but she can turn any car into a lemon in about a year, and not by wrecking them either. She got a '98 Buick Lesabre a couple years ago, perfect condition, 60k miles. Everything looked like it was a taken care of, maybe 2yr old car. So far she broke the drivers side rear view mirror off, karate chopped the turn signal switch in half, the paint is peeling, it leaks oil, there are coffee stains on the seats, it has a broken motor mount, the transmission sometimes won't shift, and the drivers side visor is floppy. This is just 1 of her cars as an example. Nobody can destroy a car like Grandma.
