Minivan: Chrysler Town & Country

Highest ranked in the Minivan category was the Chrysler Town & Country, while the Toyota Sienna came in second and the Dodge Grand Caravan was third. Even though rumors of the Town & Country’s demise have been spreading over the last few years, the model will live on. Powered by the American automaker’s popular 3.6-liter V6 engine, the Town & Country makes 283 hp while getting 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The 2014 Town & Country received an overall rating of four stars out of five from NHTSA.

    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.
