Trouble is, the BBC's funding model lets them say pretty much whatever they want on Top Gear. At least in the United States, this would not be the case, and the ability to say basically whatever they want is Top Gear's true secret sauce.

You couldn't have a TV show that reviews cars say anything particularly bad about a given car if the same channel gets its ad revenue from the company that makes that car. At least, not for very long.
