Then why don't you go survey about a million and a quarter car owners and
report on your findings?

CR stays in business because they make their readers happy. They're not
going to make them happy by steering them into crappy cars.

I finally started to consult CR before I bought cars just a few years ago.
As a result, I have been buying Toyotas.

I have 4 Toyotas, 3 purchased used, now at an average age of 7.3 years, with
10.1 years of ownership and 108,000 miles of driving and ZERO problems.
They look good, they don't squeak or rattle and the offer a good combination
of fuel economy and performance.

Maybe I'm gullible but I'm also happy to follow CRs advice.

What are the other options? Listen to you? Hah!

That's nothing. We had individual Vaxes run for at least two years and Vax
clusters up for longer than that. And we weren't a 24X7 shop, that's just
how Vaxes worked.

You could base your purchases on opinions from an illiterate retired used
car salesman who pukes "information" in this newsgroup on a daily basis. :-)

Yeah, you could. Then you'd deserve to buy a POS that costs more money in
the long run than that "overpriced" Toyota ever could.
