I always look at the used car ratings because what was recommended as a new car may not be recommended as a used car kind of gives you an ideal on problems going out a few years versus a new car. Brands like Audi seem to be rated high one year and the next terrible, same with VW. GTI was recommended for years and recently dropped.

Interesting results

I will say that CR lost all credibility with me after they tried to discredit the Iphone

This rating must be for the first 90-days of ownerhip or slightly longer because the data seems flawed with who is included and excluded

Same here. I pay more attention to the 4-5 yr. track records (CR Consumer Guide). Seems to give me a better feel of the longevity and problem areas that crop up.

This is why I always tell my wife "we can lease a VW or BMW if you want but i'm not buying one".

By the time my free maintenance and warranty is just about up i'm turning the keys in.
