So which vehicles were best in their segment? AutoGuide.com has compiled a list of all the top ranked new cars from this year’s Initial Quality Study.

    From my past observation, J.D. Power is a very dubious and manipulative auto research company. It seems any automaker can pay the company for better publicity in a timely J.D. Power study report. Yeah, J.D. Power uses data from consumers, but how does it get the data, how does it process the data, and is its data subject to public auditing ? No one knows, except J. D. Power itself , because J.D. Power owns and operates its Secret Magic Black Data Box Machine in the name of scientific data-based research.

    In general, consumer report in auto quality publishing is way more objective and trustworthy

    Both are superficial representations of actual vehicle quality.

    Consumer Reports is a much more reliable source for information.

    Well you are talking about superficial representation, which I think is as far as a data-based study/report can go, but I’m here talking about Hoax.
