    I just got a mailer from Gongos Research about how they may want to interview me and have me test drive my truck on a course. Anybody get anything like this before? If so, what was it all about?

    I'm assuming they got my info from Rodland Toyota. As far as the rape thing goes, I thought the soap preferace question in the survey was a little odd.:eek:

    Got the same thing. Did a bit of research and seems they are legit...? Dunno what I feel like doing about it, though

    They are asking the standard blah blah about how much you make, what you do for work, education, info on your vehicle. I just finished the paper form so I could leave blank all the sensitive stuff. They say they want you to do some sort of 2-3 hour test drive and they pay $150 for it.

    Doing some internet searching, they are supposed to be legit. On an Acura forum, some guy did it and they paid him in Amazon gift cards.
