Turbo-charged may not always offer more power, less fuel consumption
February 5, 2013 (WLS) -- Turbo-charged car engines may not deliver the performance or the fuel economy that drivers want, according to new tests by Consumer Reports.
The magazine blasts some automaker's claims that their turbo-charged vehicles offer more power or lower fuel consumption.
