JD POWER RATINGS Mz6---TERRIBLE

Somehow....somehow the Chevy Malibu was rated the top midsize car in initial quality and Mazda was rated one of the worst.

Article :
Porsche is top brand in new car quality survey, Fiat worst | Fox News

JD power page on Mz6:
2014 Mazda Mazda6 Sedan Ratings | J.D. Power

Oh and GM had 6 of the best in class awards...20 million recalls later.

Ready...GO

GM showers JD Power with money, doesn't surprise me that they'd tell them to give their biggest competitor low ratings.

I'll take my (much less biased) other awards from essentially every single other big car review company and let Chevy make another commercial about how many awards they've won from a place no one cares about anymore.

JD Power's awards started losing creditability when they were handing out awards to every single car for any reason they could possibly find.

Hm. Funny, at the bottom of the Mazda6 page is a little footnote:

Quote:
Detailed ratings for 2014 models are not yet available. Ratings for the 2013 model year are provided, but are not necessarily indicative of 2014 model performance.
So, these are likely for the 2013 MY. What a POS. I totally hate JD Power. I used TrueDelta for getting some more up-to-date reliability ratings.

Michael Karesh (the guy behind the TrueDelta website) had a good article I read some time back on the whole JD Power IQS study.

The Truth About J.D. Power’s IQS

Basically, it's called "lets use more less reliable info so we can get bigger advertising dollars from manufacturers". After I read that, JD Power lost all my interest.

ConsumerReports at least is less biased, even if they are a bit weighted to different ideals. However, their results take time to get out (only once a year) which can be a lot of time between a company having issues and having fixed them.

Well, lets be honest here, Motor Trend and Road and Track have their pockets lined too. I was straight blown away the the Malibu was up there at all. My friend is a GM fanboy (lives in Youngstown, oh) he likes his "Bu" but he even laughed.

We're talking about the same JD Power than ranked the Pontiac Aztec most appealing car in its class years ago. Mazda clearly forgot to pay them off, whereas GM never misses a payment.

No the car mags are different. They just are dealing with the classic news reporting dilemma of having to talk nice if they want to keep geting the access to the cars and company people for inside scoops.

Haha no doubt! They'll give one of those stupid glass trophies for having the best non-off road handling under 20mph class fuel economy Jeep!
