The last place I'd go for anything car related.
That's my thoughts too, whatever they say is the worst is probably the most innovative and newest. Whatever is best is the oldest / most reliable (but plainest) for commuter functionality.
CR reports is biased. I remember when picking out my 1/2 ton truck that Toyota Tundra was at the top of the list (not that tundras are not good vehicles just that in 2005 they were pretty far behind other makes). They failed to mention that the toyota had the smallest interior space, lowest tow capacity, lowest torque and HP numbers (BY FAR), an older styled interiors and lack of other frills (sprayed bed liner, utility bed etc), and one of the highest sticker prices (they revised the whole truck in 2006 after all).
If I want to buy a vacuum or toilet or some kitchen gadgets they are useful, but for cars pssshhh...
