i know there are tons of thermostat posts here but i am looking for comments on the brands. I think i got a duralast brand last year and im already getting the P0128 code so i thought i would shy away from that brand. My local auto store has a different brand which i cant remember the name but is made in germany. unless i go a dealer and get the oem one.

I ordered the Gates thermostat from Rock Auto. It was around 22 bucks plus shipping. The Gates box had the GM part number on it and states: "Identical to the OE thermostat".
The Gates part number for my 05 is 33939

Edit:
Here is a photo of the old one and the new one. Pretty much identical.

I got a Stant from Advance Auto that had a leak at the joint between the "shiny" and "dull" part. Not that I think Stant is a bad brand, I just got a bad one. Replaced it with the O'Reilly version...Murray, I think. No problems so far. Both brands were about $24 or $25.
