Consumer Reports Magazine / Fraud and cheating

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

The product recommendations of Consumer Reports Magazine are basically worthless. We bought a Frigidaire washer and dryer based on their recommendations and both are a piece of junk having been repaired numerous times. We also bought a Schwinn elliptical trainer which they said was a Consumer Reports BEST BUY and after being used less than 20 times it sits dead in our basement.

Consumer Reports may not know how to determine a quality product but they will fill your mailbox with promotions about automobile pricing, books on investing and medical care, etc. Based on their 'wonderful' product recommendations I would do exactly the opposite of what they say.

If you want product ratings you are better off searching online for free info than paying Consumer Reports for a bunch of know nothing nonsense.
