      The lexus gx is a toyota land cruiser with a different body, so the toyota should be equally good.

      As far as I’m concerned, it’s pronounced “JD POWA” and followed by a trap beat.

      So if the engine blows up on day 1, but the entertainment system is really good, you might still get a JD Power Initial Quality award

      3:34 detective used to be called gumshoes cuz when they wanted to sneak around without being heard they put chewed gum on the bottom of their shoes so their dress shoes wouldn't make the tapping sound when they walked and they could be more quiet and sneak around.....

      Which is better for unbiased product reviews? A company founded by a professional ad man, or a company that refuses to sell any ads? Why is Donut Media afraid to just say Consumer Reports is better after spending all that time pointing out how biased and profit motivated JD Power is?

      Who would have guessed an award company started by a former salesman and advertising agent wouldn't be the most ethical?
