RE: J,D, Power and Cosumer Reports

What you have to realize is the JD Power does *NOT* measure, nor do they
claim to, how good the cars actually are.  What they measure is how
reliable people *PERCEIVE* them to be, which, in turn, is really the
criteria most people use to purchase vehicles.

If you don't like JD Power's results, don't shoot the messenger --
complain about the car-buying American public instead!

And, no, I don't intend to defend CR in any way at all.  :-)
