Unfortunately being a consumer journalist doesn't necessarily coincide with intelligence or common sense. Anybody with half a brain can learn Sensus in about 5 minutes. Additionally, CR continued to recommend the Toyota Previa though it was burning people alive and toasters that burned people's houses down...
I agree with all of the comments here, what a stupid freaking comparison. people want to know what you get for the same money, no one cares about which is entry level for that lineup. STUPID!!! They should have compared a T6 (Mom, Ins or R) to the BMW (two $53k cars) and the then you would have something worth listening to. As it is it was like discussing the difference between a Volvo T5 and T6, SURE ITS AN UPGRADE but it costs more!!! Same as whether or not you choose a 330 or a 340.Just tried watching the video and it's painful to watch their ignorance. The moderator asked which car would you choose if you had $50k. As if the Momentum that they tested costs $50k. Then one of the hosts said that he likes the BMW features more and then goes on to mention a feature that the S60 has if they'd only gone up one trim for less money than they added to the Momentum. Baffling.

Wow, that's painting with a broad brush. I've owned a Forester and Outback, both with CVTs and never had a tranny problem.CR still lists Subarus as 2d most reliable car even though Subaru has about a 100% failure rate on its continuously variable transmissions.
I had an Outback without having any transmission issues... my mother has had 5 Subarus without transmission issues as well... don't know where he is getting his information. Try to be objective.Wow, that's painting with a broad brush. I've owned a Forester and Outback, both with CVTs and never had a tranny problem.
