Get the facts straightPosted on February 12th, 2009 No comments
It seems that an industry that complains a lot about how it is less and less relevant would strive to get simple, basic facts right since that is the basis for their existence. Ah, not at U.S. News and World Report where coughing a line or two from Mcnewspaper or Car and Driver is enough. Add in a few impressions of your own and Voila! You have a revelatory report that the new Ford is the best hybrid ever!
Except it isn’t.
It costs more than than the competition and doesn’t beat their MPG numbers. It’s cool that it’s a Ford but the name badge along doesn’t make up for the fact that it gets lower MPG than the Prius (about on par with the hybrid Camry) and costs more.
