If you scale it 0-100, like grades, Porsche would get 100. Smart would get 84.

Wonder if they break down Jeep by model?
How much of that poor rating is the cars pretending to be Jeeps and how much is Wrangler???
Curious if the low rating is the poor quality of the Daimler holdovers, or if mall roaders expect Wrangler to be carlike???

It's even worse than that, 700-900!
