Z28x, good find. However, this is only recent. Have you looked at the previous years? 2001 2000 Consumer reports: Reliability risks. Half GM, one of them camaro. http://autos.yahoo.com/consumerreports/usedpicks.html As you see, GM wasn't better then ford till recently when Ford took a s**t on quality. Infact, i read somewhere that since the 60's till the present, Ford was #1 in quality in terms of thte big three (that really isn't saying much). Now GM has taken huge strides, and their quality is pretty good (as shown in those studies you posted), and so they seemed to have improved.
