It was really strange, finally seeing C&D say something nice about Infiniti. It seems, when they are puting more emphasis on luxury, they blast Infiniti for having too much power, then when they are emphasizing power, they blast the cars, for a smaller back seat, or harsh ride.
C&D have pissed me off so many times, in the last 5 years. I have almost cancelled my subscription numerous times. In the back of my head, I am thinking they will find some flaw they ca nrant about, when they test it against a similary equipped BMW or Audi.
I think the kicker was the criticism of the power rear shade, on the 2000 I30. They didn't see why it was on the car. If anybody has one, they would tell you how great they are. We leave ours up all the time. It is great at night, when people are behind you, and great in the daytime, to keep the car cooler in the summer.
The other thing I notices right away about this edition, is the lack of stiff crap in the issue. I usually spend the first 10 minutes tearing out ads that are made of cardboard. Tis issue only had one subscription offer, and it was loose!
