I agree CR and other consumer testing media are important for making purchasing decisions. But how many trucks do they test? Maybe 3 or 4? Out of the thousands that will be sold to consumers? That's why I read what some of those "thousands" have to say about their trucks in forums like this one. The media are great for doing the original tech testing but it's the real world testers that count more to me.

I don't have a vast amount of faith in the CR reliability surveys for one thing. I do scan them, but there is too much room for human error and they do not represent the majority. I am in fact a subscriber to Cr, and find that most of their reviews/road tests make sense, but I do take their info with a grain. I do like what they say about not putting too much emphasis on their findings when it comes time to choose your next vehicle. The colored dots might all be in the right spots, but if the car doesn't suit you, it's not a good choice.

I wish I would have listened to consumer reports and their rating Nissan Titan reliability well below average. If I did I wouldn't have purchased to Nissan lemons repaired over 60 times. Obviously, CR won't be spot on every time, but would have deterred me from buying my two Nissan Lemons and gone with a more reliable brand.

Your observations do not jive at all with mine. Now, get some sleep.

You want answers? I want the truth! You can't handle the truth!

I want facts. I know the truth.

Ummm...okay...I guess I'll rephrase that to "most" forum writers. Hmmm... do you think Frank Lloyd Wright would've designed a "contemporary" Nissan?

Ask Razorthunder that question. He brought it up.
I do think that Frank would have designed an aesthetically pleasing automobile, but it wouldn't have gone anywhere.
