Sorry, I don't believe these Consumer Reports or JD Powers. I truly believe these reports are either biased, or personally motivated. One month they are praising a particular vehicle, next they are trying to trash it. A con job, for sure.

the more high tech a car becomes , the more bugs there will be . My idea of the perfect car has a good engine , modest electronics for fuel injection and a manual tranny . There are many examples . My 98 kia with a 1.8 ltr petrol engine gets 38 mpg . I tow a trailer on a regular basis . I can reach better milage numbers on the highway with no load .
