    Today I fired up the stihl chainsaw that is 15+ years old and thought why would I ever buy another brand. It’s old, works like new, and has never failed. So what brands are you loyal to and why?

    Any brand that has good customer support, is pro American, and doesn't shit all over your rights or takes their product political...

    Too many to list, but there are even more I would never give a cent to.

    Pretty much all of my TVs, appliances, and Chromebook are Samsung. I let a guy at Sams Club talk me into buying one LG TV and I hate it.
    I prefer Dasani bottled water for some reason.
    I own one Ford and two FCA vehicles. I actually prefer Dodge/Jeep but the service at their dealers is absolutely terrible which is the only reason I went back to a Ford.
    Glock pistols......it's what I learned to shoot on and they are very durable. They are a great gun for someone who isn't a gun guy.

    Ford - it's the brand of my family, have always loved their rich history and they have so many iconic vehicles.

    Coke - It tastes better than Pepsi

    Frye boots - Hand made since 1863 and their style is great but not overly flashy.

    Sony - Mostly because of the Playstation. I have had an Xbox in the past but they just never appealed to me. Cant explain that one really.

    Cars - don’t believe in brand loyalty in this area, but if I was forced to choose one, Porsche.
    Weapons - vintage style weapons. Semi, Bolt, Pump, Single, Lever, etc. Also like Swords, Axes, Maxes, etc.
    Phones - been using iPhone since my second phone purchase.
    Games - Xbox, I said **** PS after the crap that my PS3 pulled.
    Car batteries - Interstate, since I’m a dealer.

    Not big on brand loyalty in general. There’s pros and cons to any and everything from everyone.




    Pick your poison.

    Anyone who maintains a high quality standard will earn my business for important items.

    As soon as they slip, I will look until I find someone who has a high quality standard and I will never use the other product again. It’s like dumping a women who cheats on you. The sex may have been great, but you will never trust her again.

    For non-important things in my life, I’ll switch brands on a whim.

    None. I will purchase what serves the purpose I need at the price I see fit after proper research.

    Let me tell you something... 12-15 years ago, in the middle of the "F&F" craze, "Honda" was a bad word for most of us because of little hatchbacks with fart cannons. But man, their power equipment lines are fantastic. I just bought a GC190 power washer and the thing is a beast. My father still has a GCV from 2003-ish? Runs like new.

    As for brand loyalty? I'm on the edge with Ford. Craftsman has never let me down (see other thread), but I also have a sweet tooth for SnapOn and SK. Beyond that, I just go with what works.

    I want to think I'm a Ford loyalist, but even I've strayed a few times. So it could happen to anybody. I've had a Honda Prelude (great car), Subaru Impreza (loved it), Acura TSX (one of my favorite cars we've ever had), and a Jeep Renegade (biggest POS ever made). We're an all-Ford driveway right now, but that's not to say it won't always be that way. Matter of fact, our next purchase will very likely be a Lexus RX suv

    If I'm going to buy a vehicle from a domestic OEM, it's going to be Ford, end of story. Been burned waaaaaay too many times by the rest of the brands. It's to the point that it's comical to me when anyone suggests the other brands are on par in terms of quality.

    Other than that, I can't really think of any brands I'm loyal to. There are plenty I favor over others in their segment. But none that I'll never consider straying from.
