    I'm not suprised that CR has rushed to put Toyota back on their "recommended" list.
    They have a long and disapointing history of not reporting problems with Toyota and Honda vehicles until years after the issues are made public, if then.
    Not sure what the politics of it are, but my acquired cynical nature tells me there's something rotten at CR.

    Park of the problem is that Toyota and Honda get a bye whenever they introduce a new car. When Nissan introduces a new vehicle the recommendation is held pending further testing. What type of unbiased evaluation is this? How about using warranty claims as a measure of reliability. Nissan has a lower claim rate than either Toyota or Honda.
