The Real Detroit Three Stories in JD Power’s Latest Initial Quality Report: Ford’s Ascension, GM’s Deterioration

Subject: txt hots - sclm auto - msm -
When it comes to the performance of the U.S.-headquartered Detroit automakers once known as the Big Three, the real news in the J.D. Power and Associates 2010 Initial Quality Study (IQS) is not what the Associated Press's Stephen Manning wrote in his Thursday coverage ("US cars top foreign brands on quality survey") of Power's pronouncement. While barely true and in a sense historic, it's not even in the neighborhood of being the big story.

Because of its timing, Power's IQS is as good a report card as any out there on the job President Barack Obama's car czars and his apparatchik management appointees have done during the past year in improving the quality of the vehicles produced at government-controlled General Motors and Chrysler.

There's a distinct aroma of propaganda-driven misdirection in Manning's missive. A detailed look at J.D. Power's report reveals the full extent of Stephen's stench....

[Why the bias against Ford? They had the audacity to refuse government takeover and fix their problems the old fashion way: hard work. I.e., it sets a bad example.]
