They can probably merge it with the other thread - this one nicely breaks out the rankings by category.

Just to repeat what's been said before on this subject. The methodology of these surveys is suspect at best. Self reporting mailed out surveys would be very near the bottom of the survey barrel.

It's curious to me that a a good number of the top rated vehicles from 2005 aren't even made anymore....Century, Celica, Monterey, Ranier, Crown Vic, Park Ave, Solara.

I am glad to see the Aveo on there. Moms 207 so far has been good.

I don't see it anywhere else...

I was waiting this press release to see how LaCrosse/Allure MY 2005 will be rated to find out that Century is the best mid size sedan??? Even JD Power web page does not show Century in 2005 but somehow it won in that segment as only GM car. :confused:

Not broken out by category, but a summary of the results here:
