Scion iQ review from Consumer Reports

I hate to say it but this consumer report is from someone who needs to be put in a boiler to relax his nerves.



I'm surprised this guy can even talk.

I made the following comment and got this reply.


Comment Pending Approval!



I own a Scion IQ and what is being said here is not true. I enjoy this car and I never have seen less then 35 mpg with air conditioner on. Last time out I got 41.5 mpg.
The car is so much fun. I also added a cruise control and if you ever owned a Mini Cooper or a VW Beetle or even a Geo Metro this car is for you. The report here is as I said before, "A down outright lie." I would fire this guy.

At the end of the day....does it really matter what other people think? You bought what made you happy...no need to justify it.

Read my sig.

If you want to enjoy your car....stay off the internet.

I believe in Consumer's Report. But I believe in reviews from people who own the car more. Enjoy that car. CR wouldn't sway me into not buying one. I love that Scion IQ. I am a large 6 ft 2 and fit comfortably in it.

Back on topic.

About 2:50 minutes in on First Shift video you will see where we stand as owners of Toyota/Scions when we the people speak.

Who's #1? Toyota/Scion. Why would Consumer Reports @ Auto Testing Flip-Flop, or was it just that we have spoken...

Our subscribers tell us it does not break
I'm glad they attempted to fix what was broken with them. "CR"

Check it out 2:50 minutes into the news video: click on --> Auto News for video news.

As the owner of a Scion IQ and Scion tC, if I report that these cars are great cars and that I recommend them, I am telling you the truth. Toyota has the best cars in the world.

Consumer Reports is the biggest load of phony trash in publication when it comes to cars. Avoid them like the plague.
