I noticed that 4 years ago when I started my subscription. It is not that they don't like domestics, its that they don't like GM cars. Fords and Chryslers are great, GM cars are crappy, ugly, slow, underpowered, and overpriced. It is rediculous that they can't test out real cars. They are really obsessed with this new 4 cylinder ricer craze. And, if you didn't notice...not one of those cars was faster than 13 flat in the 1/4, and the FWD ones were a lot slower. C&D is stupid, and i just read their magazines to humor myself, and to read the occasional article about a nice domestic car.
What is even better is when you see the comparisons that they do. The GM cars always finish bad because the styling is bad. In February of 2000 they had a 9 car comparo that had the SSEi in it. The SSEi was the quickest car of the group (and 200lbs. heavier than any other car in the comparison), and it had the most options (which they said was a bad thing, they said GM should put less stuff in the car, and they would like it better, WTF???), BUT since the car was ugly, it finished 8th out of 9 cars. I can't stand them, and I write the editors letters from time to time, but they ignore them, they don't even send anything back saying they recieved my letter, stupid asses. The only car that could stop faster is the 300m, and there were only 2 cars that could handle better.
Anyways, enough with my rant about C&D. That is how I feel. Feel free to criticize me all you want.
