This week we’re calling Consumer Reports to the mat. As far as we’re concerned, their automotive testing is second to none, but when it comes to quality ratings: bogus. Much has been made of Ford’s plummeting status in the latest survey, but we’ll talk about whether the folks in Dearborn have to start worrying or not. We’ll also get into the news of the week including the third quarter financial results. Plus we want to talk about what we, including one of our viewers, think the next generation of Mustang could look like. To discuss this and more, John McElroy is joined in studio by Peter De Lorenzo the Autoextremist and Charlie Vogelheim from ResponseLogix.

    Peter is right, I work for chevy dealship when GM put the then chevy engine into the Oldsmobile and called it a GM engine, the Olds folks went nuts — it was law suit city then, the suits didn’t go anywhere but Olds lost a lot of customers at the time (early 70′s) the house of —– is a great idea, but as said on the show it will NEVER happen. Loved the show Thanks for giving it to us.
