I agree, they are finally giving into the obvious fact that things are not made to last and some models are not able to be repaired (discontinued parts).  One model that comes to mind is a Wolf dual-fuel range.  This particular model has the flip over control pad - if it fails there are no more - there goes $12K out the window.  I have only serviced two thermadore wall ovens and one downdraft unit and I did find the design was not thought out well for the price.  As far as actually printing articles based on this problem, I think that the magazine grew some balls and not giving into temptation and siding with the manufacturer's with all their cash to influence a good report.
