Million Mile driver 5pts Funny, but I have been a follower of CR's auto reviews for over 30 years, but for the last 5 years I began to wonder how they lost their way with heavily biased results. One cannot take their reports on face value anymore, but you have to read between the lines. For example, they are in love with Subaru even though the cars do not measure up to their ratings when you get behind the wheel. Second is their hatred of anything Chrysler. Read their recent rating on the dodge Journey and it was full of hatred statements and included a pants on fire lie about fuel economy stating it only got 16 mpg when the one I am currently driving is averaging 23 mpg over 13,000 mi. They raked it for having bad shifting even though the shifting is identical to every other car with a six speed auto trans. My experience is that the six speed transmissions all have quirky shifting due to having too many gear/load/accelerator position/speed choices. They appear to be a temporary patch on the way to CVT's that can take more torque and power. Always balance CR's ratings with those from other publications. The frequency of repair records are really great though and I have never been burned by buying a car with all red dots. If a car you want has black dots, go and talk to an INDEPENDENT auto mechanic for the truth.
