Shanonia, the article about the fit/finish/hardware on a 2013 Camry being rated POOR on the 6 cylinder and EXCELLENT on the 4 cylinder came from an issue of Consumer Reports itself.
I was sitting in the doctor’s office a few years ago and perusing the magazine at the time. Naturally, when I read that my thought was “What planet are those people on…” to state that wind noise, water leaks, body panel fitment, and quality of the hardware was excellent on the 4 banger and poor on the 6.
Go drag up a 2013 issue of CR and read it for yourself.
So are you saying that CR NOW states the previous body fitment, hardware, leaks, noises, etc have suddenly disappeared between 2013 and 2018?
If so, that just proves my point if their opinion changes with the wind direction.
