|The Worst Value Midsize SUV?|
The idiots at Consumer Reports are at it again. They're notorious for their disparaging reviews of vehicles, and their latest fluff piece shows just how uninformed they are.
As reported by AutoGuide, CR's most recent article on automotive sensationalism is a Top-10 list of new cars that they claim are the worst value, supposedly taking into account the costs of depreciation, maintenance, operating costs, and resale value in addition to the obvious initial purchase price. CR claims to have determined the five-year cost-of-ownership for each vehicle and ranked them accordingly to determine which vehicles in today’s market gives you the worst bang for your buck.
Consumer Reports named the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara as the lowest-ranking midsize-SUV value, which is not just surprising but completely absurd. The experts pretty unanimously disagree with CR.
