This is a very liberal magazine that has some good tips for buying stuff.
If you want a toaster or a washing machine, go see what they say about the product.
The problem comes when they venture out into the area of "theory," such as health care, life insurance, financial investments, etc. These are not products that you can put on a bench and see which breaks first, and that's really all Consumer Reports is good for.
If I were you, I'd disregard anything they say about anything that doesn't involve moving parts.
