Regarding ratings, they're obviously weighted .... an otherwise great car can easily get a 'not acceptable' if anything safety related has issues, even if 14 of the other 15 categories are good.

Their mileage ratings have also been almost exactly what I've gotten in long-term use.

Motor Trend and Automobile magazine say the exact same thing about the DCT and MFT, so I guess they have no credibility either ....

Anybody who even now continues to maintain that there aren't real problems with the DCT or MFT simply has their head in the sand .... or somewhere else ....

Actually someone who worked at CR wrote a book about that very thing. Unbiased is a term they use loosely.
