Read the fine print "disclosure" statement at the bottom of the scoring test. Basically, it says that the total scores of the vehicles are NOT the sum of the individual scores. They are arrived at using certain UNdisclosed subjective measurements.
Now to begin with, many of the test scores WERE ALREADY subjective. Now they say, they basically throw all that out and tell us they used a completely different system to arrive at the total score.
Does the word, "manipulate" come to mind?
