This tells me all I’ve always suspected about Consumers’ Report. They’re fixed.
Who owns these cars? Chevy dealers? What are they going to report? Even if the car burned up in their garage, they are going to say that it’s wonderful. The rest of them are owned by institutions. So, how accurate are their reports? The accountant for the institution fills it out for the whole fleet. Or, the executive secretary.
I’ve subscribed to CR from time to time over the years and havefound that they are less than helpful in my purchases.
It's designed to do that. No engineering flaw here. Move along.
