that may have been a valid comparison if it was .45 acp against .45acp.Jacob Staff said:I just got the August 2005 Gun Tests Magazine in the mail.

Haven't read the article yet, but I should be good.
are you talking about their new car reviews, or are you talking about the ratings they provide at year's end? when they review vehicles, they often cite that the vehicle rides well, or corners well, or whatever, but often, if it's american, they rate it suspect for reliability. so when i read reviews of their new vehicles, i take it with a grain of salt, checking the reliability ratings (from the year end review) for that make and model. i don't know how one could think that CR is biased towards american made cars, check their year-end issue that lists ratings for all cars, which are based on responses from CR members. hondas, toyotas, lexus and acura always rate well, whereas gm, ford and chrysler always have black marks (circles, actually).manygunner said:Mainly because I have seen how they showed preferential treatement and gave higher ratings to US made cars that were obviously POS. I saw good foreign cars maligned in favor of some Detroit built trash. Further I know that several US car makers send cars made with specifically higher quality control to send to CR, CR does not get to choose any car on the lot (I was informed of this by a Ford emloyee. SHe told me that whe she was getting a car that she made sure her particular car was designated as a CR test cat so it got higher anti-corrosion and paint QC.) This was over a decade or so ago when Nader was stil there. They also gave worst possible rating to Hyundai back then while they were better engineered and more reliable then anything that was coming otu of the US production lines.). Nope they do not exercise good controls and have in the past showed bias against foreign competition. I wil never trust them again.
