Default Consumer reports

I just read in the new 2008 consumer reports magazine reviews it did not recommend the 2003 GT...It seemed to rate it bad on engine transmission etc...This is the 1st bad thing I have read on these cars usually I have read good reports on the PT...Any feedback on this?

Consumer reports looks at cars as if they were washing machines....

I looked at Consumer Reports when buying mine. Immediately told me not to buy a pre-06 PT Cruiser. So I bought an 07.
