Came in at #5. Meh, what do they know anyways.
My favorite is:
"Reality check: The Volkswagen Golf R has slightly worse city fuel economy than popular American muscle cars like the 2012 Dodge Charger and 2012 Dodge Challenger. "
Reality check: It actually doesn't. Thanks to these folks, we now know that higher performing cars get worse mileage.

On side note I have drove a Ralliart with exhaust, tune, and intake that broke all 4 wheels loose on a wet road at 30-35mph when the boost kicked in. Scared me for a second when the car started to merge lanes by itself. LOL
That was honestly the dumbest thing I have ever seen written. Man, I should have been an internet writer for a large 'news' company. I just have to write stupid crap and get paid.
My favorite is the reality check on the Lancer. A Porsche with the PDK gets better MPG. Okay...That is good to know. "Man it sure does suck that I bought this Lancer when the six figure Porsche could have gotten better MPG....what a stupid purchase I made".
Captain Obvious here. It's Yahoo Autos. Yahoos writing about autos. derp.
440 million years ago there was an ice age that lasted 500,000 years. Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide levels were an order of magnitude higher than today. When you can explain that, I'll get serious about reducing my carbon footprint. Until then, I'm keeping the car.
