Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

Trying to make the link. But I just read that a California Appeals court reinstated the lawsuit against Consumer Reports.

<a target="_blank" href=http://abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20020625_1291.html>http://abcnews.go.com/wire/US/ap20020625_1291.html</a>

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

Hear here!!!


I do get a cheap thrill when my passengers are all up tight ~ leaning and holding on for dear life...

CR wants a world where an absolute moron can blindly walk through life and not get hurt by things that demand common sense. And if they can sell the moron a magazine to dictate opinions, even better.

Good.[img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img] Consumer Reports is the biggest bunch of hog wash (to put it nicely).[img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

We got screwed by not getting the coil sprung Sammy's that are elsewhere. Seen a few up close in New Zealand last summer. Man, I'm jealous![img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

Hummmmmmmmmmm. Think of the possibilities. CU loses, and has to compensate Suzuki U.S., and then, in a gesture of good will and commerce, Suzuki again starts importing the cool Zuks available everywhere in the world but here.
Yep, I could go for one of those coil spring beautys.

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

I just saw it on CNN. They are listing it in the news headlines that show up along the bottom of the screen. Suzuki should be able to win this given a fair chance. Then we can all be driving new Samurais!

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

Won't happen, even if CR loses, we onw't be driving new Zukis in the Us. It was cost/marketing decisions that caused Suzuki to withdraw it from the market.

There are not enough buyers. And new Suzuki buyers would not be enticed away from the new low cost Jeeps and the Chevy Sidek... er... Trackers.

The market was tough for Suzuki when they sold Samurais, today it is even tougher. We are a niche market, not enough buying power to bring the Samurai back in full scale.

I love my Zuki, and will own it until it is not possible to bondo, weld, tack, and glue it back together. But I'm not so fond of the new look either.

I would personally buy in a heartbeat a brand new-straight from the factory-88.8 Samurai, but not for $22k US dollars. And that is probably what it would cost after the import tariffs, and other mandatory options slapped on it by the US Govt.

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

If its not American, Consumer Reports is going rag on it all they can. They like the insanely huge American SUV's that will clobber anything in its pathway. They have their favorite little companies and they will do whatever they can to promote them. If it is "foreign" a red flag automatically comes up that says "SCREW THOSE F*CKERS OVER!" ARGH! That makes me mad. Some very good trucks came from overseas, but Consumer Reports fails to see that! Arg! To hell with it all! BOMB CR!!!!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Suzuki vs. Consumer Reports

They were selling tons of them until the CR story.

I also own an Isuzu Trooper they trashed the same way and recently threw a Hoover vacuum in a dumpster they declared a best buy. CR is worthless.
