It might be the morning or im just annoyed...

WHAT IS SHE DOING?! Comparing S5 and S4 to M5???? They're not even in the same market! (S6 to M5...not S5 to M5...don't look at the numbers!!!!) This old bag needs to be retired and they should bring in somebody that has at least some knowledge of cars!! I'm one step from writing complaints to Fortune...It's painful to my eyes when reading these kinda BS.

C'mon guys... it wasn't THAT bad.
She actually owns or leases an M5. Since she works for Money, she's just saying that the new S5 pricewise is better than an M5 but if you watch her video, she actually likes her M5.

What I was blown away by was
"...S5, which arrives in the U.S. in November. At roughly $55,000 (as tested),"
$55,000!!!
Even loaded with options, the pricing is going to be a lower than the M3 more than likely.
What is the A5 going to be priced at?

CNN Money should never have had a car review forum. What she's doing has no value added and rather giving retarded and useless information to readers. She has a E39 M5...not the E60...and she's one of those grandmas driving a M5 that you see once in a while...Any one of us here can do a better job than her.

She is good (very good) at writing, but I doubt she knows anything once the tire hits the road. Here is her biography:

Sue Callaway is a journalist who has worked for Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Men's Journal, and Fortune. She also served as the director of marketing for Ford's luxury brands and as general manager of Jaguar Cars North America. She is a graduate of Smith College.

lol...i believe you just answered my question from a while ago...why does ford's PAG cars SUCK! I always though marketing is beyond horrific at Volvo (and just about every brand in PAG!). she is indeed a good writer with good grammar but sucks in doing reviews.
