is generally full of crap and doesn't mean too much.....J.D. Powers accepts paid advertising but the real issue is that the results are for "INITIAL QUALITY". That does not mean that your brand new First Out on Race Day won't fall apart 10 minutes after leaving the dealership lot. Initial quality surveys don't sway me one way or the other.....let's come back to these "Top Rated Fords" in 10 years, compared to lower rated Toyotas, and we'll see which ones have been more durable and reliable.....I would bet that the "Top Rated Fords" will settle to the bottom of the barrel.......
