Consumer Reports see cars as appliances.

Their survey comes from its readers, not the entire population. Nor do they ask what a "significant" problem is. THe bias is not from consumer reports, it's from the readers of consumer reports.

JDPower gathers data from ALL owners, and pulls the codes from manufacturers of ALL vehicles. there is a methodology as to what is a "significant" problem, and minor annoyances.

It's why JDPower is the industry standard, and no manufacturer uses Consumer Reports in their advertisements.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
