    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

    Actually no, Consumer Reports is actually reports from consumers and can not be bought ….

    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.
