Consumer Reports must have gotten some flack when they removed seven vehicles from their "recommended" list after poor crash test performances so they just changed they way they rate cars to "better reflect" test results. There is now a two-tier rating system, a higher tier for vehicles that get excellent or very good performance in crash test and a lower tier for those that rate good or have not been tested. We feel that it still doesn't put vehicles on an even playing field, but we don't look at cars like they are appliances here.
