sometimes i wonder if Crap and Drivel (tm) simply react to the market.
i.e. honda sells well, therefore write glowing articles to please the
mass of owners (plus the advertisers of course)...

and cars that are spurned by the public get bashed, like audi has
for a while.  the good review on the A4 could be nothing more than
just pandering to the crowd.  

i find it amusing that Crap and Drivel (tm) doesn't get the same kind
of heat for pandering and flip flopping in the same way that the
current president of the USA is getting.

if Crap and Drivel (tm) was a person that held political office it
would have been burned to ashes by now.

when was the last time you saw Crap and Drivel (tm) stand up for
a car that was a commercial flop?  there were many great cars
that were commercial flops.  to argue that best = commercial
success is to argue that the MacDonald's big mac is the best
food in the world.
