Unexplained anomalies within CR
Looking through Consumer Reportsí New Car Preview 2006
, I noticed many anomalies that beg for an explanation. Unfortunately, none is offered. This month Iíll discuss these unexplained differences, and how TrueDelta would handle them differently.
Specifically, I noticed many large differences between different bodystyles of the same basic car. This surprised me. Logically, different styles of the same basic car should score about the same, as they share the great majority of their parts, including powertrains. This is especially the case if both are made in the same plant.
