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.

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.

Yahoo has this content shared from News18. Comparison between Vitara Brezza AGS and Ecosport Auto.
Brezza AGS is only Diesel and Ecosport Auto is only available in Petrol. It makes no sense to compare Diesel and Petrol. The article is not specific to automatic comparison, but is more generalised comparison of looks, interiors and performance and the auto boxes are not even compared.

In my home country the Netherlands Fiat made a big blunder many years ago when they introduced the Fiat Croma.

Croma at the time was also the name of a particular brand of butter. Every Dutch family would have a package of Croma in the fridge. It was particularly associated with little old ladies home cooking.But nobody had informed Fiat.

At the press conference for the introduction many journalists showed up with a package of Croma. The model did not sell well in the Netherlands. The car, not the butter!

That was probably meant to show the braking power of the vento! Brakes are so good that the front wheel can do a stop with the rear axle in air just short of the finish line.
