Noticing a lot of media blunders these days, and thought this thread is more relevant now than ever before - thanks to the big rush shown by these media channels in becoming the first to bring out a review online!

1. Autoportal review of the Nexon, where the Journalist is clearly seen driving the petrol variant throughout the review even while making observations about the engine, whereas the comparison was about the diesel variants.



2. Cars18 review of the SCross 1.6 - Needless to speak more than just add the pic.

Media / Ad Blunders-imageuploadedbyteambhp1506755991.923617.jpg Look for the interior images. This happened but they corrected when I tweeted about it. They were quick to accept and even change it. Mistakes happen with everyone. But, the good thing they immidiately replied and corrected.

Absolutely!

Incase of AutoPortal - they chose to disable comments on the particular video, which I personally feel was unethical.

However - just saw that Cars18 has accepted their mistake in a very polite manner.

PS -

Speaking of mistakes - My post above says SCross 1.6. Sigh! That 1.6 naturally comes everytime I think SCross.

Frustrating to see arrogance of AutoPortal. Frankly never liked their videos. There was also a video of Skoda Superb or Rapid by Autoportal where the guy says OVRM for ORVM. I couldn't stop laughing at that point. Those averagely guys picked up by them at low CTC. This was bound to happen.
