I respectfully differ.
CR may not like some car’s infotainment, but that doesn’t count as far as their reliability rating. If a car’s infotainment breaks and the owners mention that in the yearly survey, then yes, it is included in the reliability rating. The ENTIRE car should work as intended; and so infotainment problems are fair game.
The average consumer may not know the history and the purpose behind the Wrangler and will assume it’ll drive exactly the same as a Camry. In their effort to be as unbiased as possible, Consumer Reports will always uhh, report on tradeoffs like the excessive wind noise.
It’s not that the radio is confusing, it’s that you have to take your eyes off the road to operate the HVAC, wipers, headlights, etc.
It’s okay; when you’re spending 30-40 seconds fiddling with the “infotainment” screen, the Autopilot will take over and drive into a firetruck for you.
If the stereo stops working in a Model 3, it can take everything else with it. A bad stereo when the stereo controls everything the car does could present a reliability concern.
If the tablet on the Model 3 breaks can you still operate the car?
In their defense, people fall in love with vehicles without knowing much about them. I really, really want an early-model CJ, but upon driving one without power steering I suddenly discovered the romance has limits.
The confusing stereo is a real issue when you need to look at it to control important functions in the vehicle. Also, the Edmunds long term road test has some more interesting insights. Their radio kept turning up to full volume without warning. That seems like it would be enough to distract the driver and create a…
Except this was probably the exact reason he was brought in: to lend his reputation as a wall against public opinion as the other owners took a look at Jeff Loria’s exploits and said, “Hold my aged cognac.”
Most professional athletes buy $1700 Gucci sweatshirts and spend their time pricing watches and new diamonds to put on their wrists or ears, or dropping $10k on bottle service at the club.
Having just gone through the unexpected passing of my brother, having funeral bills taken care of is a great burden to have lifted. God bless him.
So are the funerals for ‘liberal actors trying to take mah guns away’? Or is that only the survivors?
Well, I see some room to start a conversation that begins with: “If you are a gun owner, be a responsible gun owner. Trigger locks, locked gun cabinets, etc. Secure your weapons, always.”
I think Watt is obviously a great person, but he’s also super corny. The corny part is what people rag on.
I’m a native Texan, live in Houston, and love the Texans. This will never happen as long as JJ is doing all the endorsement deals he is currently doing, especially with someone like HEB (biggest grocery chain in Texas). There are a far too many Texans for whom the Second Amendment is sacrosanct and no reasonable…

Dana Loesch- how much do you want to bet she jogs around her gated community in camouflage workout gear?
I’m sure the NRA and GOP will give her the customary 9 hour waiting period before they start calling her a triggered librul snowflake who hates America, and/or a plant that is part of a false flag operation run by the deep state and funded by George Soros.
