The following code that trying to use Repeater is not working. But "Response.Write" is working and return the data I want.

When I try to use _Data to repeater, I see the following error.
Cannot deserialize the current JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) into

I believe it is because the Json string does not have root before [ sign, but I do not know how to fix it.

public class Rootobject
            public string Make { get; set; }
            public string Model { get; set; }
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            xml.Text = GetFleetList("Tow","xml");
            json.Text = GetFleetList("Tow", "json");

            var x = GetFleetList("Tow", "json");

            var _Data = Newtonsoft.Json.JsonConvert.DeserializeObject <List<Rootobject>>(x);

            foreach (Rootobject item in _Data)
                Response.Write(item.Make+ ":" + item.Model + "<br>");
            Repeater1.DataSource = _Data;

 <asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="Repeater1">
                    <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Make")%>
