Yet More car stuff

To follow up on the warranty post: Here are the results for the 2005 JD-Power dependability study. They're trying to measure reliability after three years. I've taken the liberty of highlighting the cars made by GM and Ford. (I'm sure there's a very good reason that not a single Mitsubishi is on the list.)
