Default More bias auto bullshit

I really wish Consumer Reports would go bankrupt already...

Man, that award winning new Chevy Malibu...nowhere to be found on that list.

Fucking sell-outs.

There is not one AMerican car on that list.

only Mazda/Ford Hybrids

btw, a Malibu with a V6 (which is the only one worth buying) is more than 25K

Go figure...I would never expect you to say that.

There are plenty worth buying that are under that price range.

if you compare an American car side by side with a Rabbit, which is 14,000, or a Mazda 3...No chance.

Look at their resale value to, its nuts how much a cobalt, or caviler goes down in value compared to a VW.


And Mazda is owned by ford so suck it up.

About a month ago I read through the latest automobile Consumer Reports while sitting in a waiting room. I was COMPLETELY PISSED! That is the worst biased baised magazine I have ever read.

Not only does it completely talk shit about every single thing made in America, but I found in at least 6 different areas of the magazine where they completely contradict themselves when rating the vehicles and stating facts and statistics! Heck, they even contradicted themselves on thier own opinions! What a shit magazine. I was sooo pissed off that day. But after talking to a multiude of people about consumers, most every body agrees with me, that Consumer Reports is not worth anything.

I'm not disagreeing that Consumer Report is a pile of trash, (i drive a samurai), but i'm saying they may have a point with cars under 25K
