    They offered a plan to tie all assets to a collateralized, $18B loan. When they can't pay it back, they'll lose everything.

    Hell, if I were Toyota, I'd loan them the money. :eek3:

    JD Power charts don't "explain" anything. They just list data. It's up to you to decide how to interpret the results.

    It's certainly a better measure than "my friend told me they make better cars", which is a claim with NO backing data.

    And I'm guessing you drive an import. :mamoru:

    And you're also a homosexual.

    Can you explain why Land Rover, a Ford owned company, is the worst in IQ, but remain wholly profitable, while the Ford parent company, is eons better in IQ, but can't make money or sell cars?

    whatever, dont bitch when you get passed on the street because your super gas efficient jap car only has 4 cylinders and cant keep up with even the slowest american cars.

    Let's talk about your interpretation, shall we? You believe that ranking in J.D. Power's surveys indicate how "good" a car is. Therefore, you, and people like Jason, feel the need to fuck up every car thread on OT with images of a J.D. Power's survey because you think J.D. Power is the end-all of how "good" a car is. Here's a secret; no one gives a fuck what J.D. Power thinks and you're a fucking retard.
