Lightbulb you have a pont

that's true, the thing about the PT cruiser, that screems bribe or something, and I wonder if the porsche thing is true, it seems that they make good enough cars to uphold thier rep, who knows. I never buy a car without testdriving it, and I think that goes for most people. I've been shopping around and test driving, ..

it's obvious, anyone who's been reading MT for long enough can see the total shift from domestic only to import only, theres always questions about interiors or handling problems with domestic cars, when the stock Z06 outlapped a stock 911T, they make excuses for the porsche by claiming the porsche driver is more used to driving "race" porsches, not that the Z06 is plain faster. unless the numbers outright make it impossible for them to fudge, assuming they dont purposly slow the car down, they will never admit a domestic is better, car & drive, autoweek, road & track, auto, they're all even worse about it.and if you don't think part of it is payoffs you're living in a dream world.



This is VERY TRUE

PT Cruiser sucks! They released it to topple the cute Beetle (epitome of cutness is its trademark). At first when PT Cruiser was launched, I didn't mind reading about it in car mags or seeing a few in the street. Now it's everywhere, and it's plain ugly. I sat inside once, the interior resembles a big cargo box. It's a coffin car for the daily drivers, goodness sake.

Re: Car of the year goes to the highest bidder

advice to all, don't follow what the magazines tell you because any of them could be being paid by the auto manufacturers. Go out, test drive a car that has caught your eye and if you like the drive find out the safety specs and other specs on it. You are your own best source of knowing what car to buy.

Re: Car of the year goes to the highest bidder

by the way, the rumor is most likely true. I am taking journalism classes right now and my teacher has known people who wrote for certain car magazines to take bribes.
