The following websites are not acceptable sources for information, to be used as proof to fix a stat on a car.  Please keep this in mind when submitting corrections for cars.
  • Wikipedia - Everything entered on this page is entered by unknown users.  Therefore, the accuracy of the data cannot be confirmed.
  • Automobile-Catalog.com - Everything on this page is collected by the site owner(s), with no citing of the sources of their information.  The simulation section is also just that, at simulation and not actual proof of a car's performance.
  • Carfolio.com - This is another crowd-sourced site, with no citing of their sources for information.
  • AutoEvolution.com - This site does not do their own testing, so it is unsure where their information comes from.
