Could the black sheep of the automotive press among enthusiasts, Consumer Reports, really be home to a bunch of 'car guys'? The publication has long been discounted by most automotive buff books and aficionados as a lab full of egg-headed statisticians that wouldn't know an entertaining car if it ran them down. But is that an accurate perception, or an outmoded stereotype?

Toronto Star pen Jim Kenzie spent some time with the folks at CR to see what makes them tick, and to afford readers a glimpse of the publication's testing methodologies. We'll still keep our enthusiast magazine subscriptions, thanks, but Kenzie’s article remains a worthwhile read.
