I've watched a few episodes of this show and have come to the conclusion that their show is horribly biased to European and British cars. Maybe they get a lot of funding for their show via European sponsors, but anytime they do a car comparison between a euro/brirish car and anything American, the euro car will be held up like a beacon of automotive ingenuity whilst the US car will be touted as 3rd world engineering.
The shows segments and tests are blatantly setup to either pass or fail a car, before they even get behind the drivers seat. One episode the girl is blindfolded and put in the front passenger seat, and through nothing other than sound, smell and feel she is asked to guess what car she is sitting in. She successfully guesses not only what make of car she is sitting in, but also the model. Just to give a bit of perspective, there are over 130 makes of car in the world. Then encompassing all the models of each make, there are over 2000+ models in the world. FWIW, the car was a Chrysler 300c. The viewer is meant to believe that she was able to make that miraculous guess sitting in the passenger seat while blinded.
Needless to say that all of the presenters on that show gave the car an extremely bad rating, because it was of course - American made.
There are some redeeming qualities in the show as far as humour and entertainment go with drag racing, etc but a car buyer should never take any notice of these clowns when deciding on what car to spend their money on.
