I have limited access to car magazines, but do read Consumer
Reports and Web-Based mags and sites (Edmunds, Driving.ca,
autonet, etc), as well as my local newspaper car section. I also
watch car TV shows (such as C&D, Fifth Gear, Motoring 2006, etc).
Well, this year, everywhere I looked, Japanese products were
often in the top spots. Now, I know about the complaints that CR
is bias against our companies, but from many different reviewers
this year is kinda odd, to say the least... But these reviews
also place unduly amphasis on "driving fun". I want something
practical and reliable so I think that the factors they consider
as important to place a car in the top 10 might be different than
the common Joe like me.
I know I do not have access to everything. Is there a serious
source where GM, Ford or Chrysler products made it in these "top
10"? I like to read about this so an URL would be welcomed as I
am considering either getting a new GM or Ford Minivan. Are there
reviews that uses "practicality" and reliability and "everyday
family usage" as factors?
