Re: Dislikes American cars?

i dont think they dislike american cars, i think that they arent choosing the correct models for each american car. I like the mag, but if its too biased on one side or the other, it aint a good mag if its about the car and the driver.

Re: Dislikes American cars?

I wouldn't say that they dislike American cars. If you compare their results to other magazines, American cars place about as well in other comparisons. In thier January 2006 article the STS-V beat the CLS55 (and lost to the M5), they also ranked the Corvette ahead of the 911 Carrera. The Corvette, 300, and Mustang GT were all on their top ten list. American cars don't win all the time, and probably don't win more often then not, but I would say that they are justified.
