Default Re: Motor-Trend sucks. Mustang Loses

I would take the V6 Mustang over any Hyundai anyday...The Hyundai has no looks appeal, no headroom, especially in the rear and a very very very small trunk, The Mustang is a way better buy in all means except warranty. If you think Im being tough, just watch the Motorweek review, Watch the small guy try to sit in back, Hes gotta lean his head back facing the sky, and it can't even fit 2 small suitcases in the trunk..

Default Re: Motor-Trend sucks. Mustang Loses

keep one thing in mind, it's the authors opinion. the mustang lost to the genesis . .04 seconds in the figure 8, beat the Genesis in every other category. wait till the next Genesis pulls up next to me. Gonna have to remind him.

ford20's latest status update: 6 more days until a GT350 is revealed. There is so much want for that car.
Default Re: Motor-Trend sucks. Mustang Loses

Everyone is like WTF in all the automotive news sites like on MotorTrend and Autoblog and Jalopnik. Everyone points out how the Mustang was a better performer and $6,000 cheaper yet lost to the Genisis because the Genisis "feels" better. WTF how stupid is that, I would take any car that is better handler and performance car that gives you confidence to put the handling up to the test then a car that "feels" better any day of the week.

Did you guys also see that Wards named the Camaros interior as the best for 2010 in the sports car category?!?! I swear with these tow things I think Automotive journalists have gone off the deep end.

Default Re: Motor-Trend sucks. Mustang Loses

You know, Motor-Trend is a complete joke, I've always wanted to say this but I didn't since it seemed like everyone worshiped them and followed their reviews, they are opinionated and biased.

Edmunds is where it's at, realistic, pure facts, and well balanced.

Default Re: Motor-Trend sucks. Mustang Loses

This is ones guys opinion. I feel all of the "Road test" Magazines are crap. My favorite thing about them is they like to badmouth the "American made" cars to within an inch of their lives time and time again and then when they hear about one of the U.S. Companies going under.They run editorials stating how sad it is...... Very nice..... Let's see Bad reviews= Drop in sales= out of business. For the record I don't feel they are soley responsible,but they sure don't try to help.

Roush and Saleen both build their cars to handle, not take the dragstrip faster.
