    So wait...the BEST car rating had 63 problems per 100 vehicles? The BEST?

    The results are pretty meaningless in the long term and the brands on top tend to change rapidly while long-term reliability and customer satisfaction scores do not.

    i think JD Power surveys are to automotive reviews what the NRA "Golden Bullseye award" is to the firearms market.

    BS fluff.
