The article explains how they get there reliability ratings.

They survey their subscribers, so it is the readers of C.R. that score the cars. Each model has to have at least 100 responses to be rated.

If they did it any other way, I'm sure they would get blown out of the water for not giving full disclosure.

So what does that say about the readers of C.R.?

The one thing that I agree that they may be pandering to foreign brands is the statement in parentheses that says they are reinstating their recommendation for models that had sticky accelerator problems.

Most of the GM cars I've had over the years were mostly OK. The worst new one I can remember was a new '66 Pontiac Tempest Sprint. A real POS quality-wise. But a new '59 Catalina Coupe was a great reliable car. The Cadillacs I had were all reliable cars. Of course the work beaters and street rods I had were always getting fixed Very Happy , but it was fun!!
I had only one "foreign" type, a new '71 Datsun pickup, which was mostly OK.
