You are right about Consumer Reports. They bashed Apple iPhone and iMacs, etc. They do not understand Apple's quality control. I have been using them for over 25 years and haven't go to the repair shop. My 20 years old MacBookPro laptop still works! Consumer Reports often got it wrong! Especially when it comes to Apple or Ford Ranger!!!.
Now that's scary! Consumer reports has been wrong on everything from toasters to trucks for 50 years.
I'll try not to be afraid to drive my Ranger this week!
