CR has been darn accurate in some instances of pinpointing troublespots on certain car models in certain years. As owners of vehicles, especially as owners who participate in forums and see the experiences of others in addition to our own, we're in a good spot to assess the accuracy of some of the findings.
But... when you account for the numerous reports of CR manipulating data, IMO it taints the entire organization and relegates anything they publish to being nothing more than mere entertainment.
It's a real shame. CR had tremendous potential to be the definitive guide for just about everything we buy.
