You have absolutely no way of knowing that, so I’m not sure why you feel like making such a statement, other than you’re simply making excuses on teslas behalf.
Again, I didn't claim I "knew" anything, I made it perfectly clear I was putting forward a speculative hypothesis to explain some of the curious rankings of the results (not just Tesla). Nor did I make any excuses for Tesla, in fact the very first thing I said in my post was that Tesla do have quality issues.
Although Consumer Reports has methodology issues also, it is interesting that in their latest rankings, Tesla was 11, Toyota 12, and Dodge 21 (out of a total of 33 makers). A complete inversion of the J.D. Power results.
It is also worth noting that J.D. Power generate significant revenue from selling the results of surveys such as these for use by auto makers in brand advertising. And Tesla do not advertise.
You also state "It’s more likely all car buyers check their vehicle for issues equally because no one wants a damaged new car. Regardless of how minor." How is that any less speculative than my hypothesis?
