  1. 16:42 is clearly the highlight of this video.

  2. 23:27 “electric cars have a high depreciation, and can be had for nearly 75% off the original APR” – I think they mean MSRP. Used cars tends to have higher interest rates.

  3. 16:38

  4. Nobody:
    16:40
    Jon: *Criss Cross Apple Sauce*
    Mike: 👁️__👁️

  5. Get in the Yugo have a model called the GV?

  6. no emissions in Alaska too

  7. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  8. good show

  9. The CT6 was beautiful as was the CTS. The 4 and 5 …eh.

  10. Glad to see Jon and Mike back. Good show!

  11. 8:49 When asked “how does the 11,500 pound-feet of torque compare to that of a diesel F250”, I thought you guys were going to take the opportunity to mention that EV torque is measured at the wheels while ICE torque is traditionally measured at the crank. To take ICE torque numbers to compare with EV’s you would have to know the gearing (transmission and final drive ratio) to multiply the crank torque for equivalency.

    • I’m not sure if they’re even aware of this, to be honest.

    • Agree, but, on an EV with a one speed transmission, a wheel torque measurement is more viable, than on an ICE car, where wheel torque changes with every gear shift.

  12. I have a 2016 Q5 TDI and just had the emissions fix done, it drives fine and there’s hardly any difference.

  13. I can’t believe Cadillac continues to squander its lead in autonomous driving by not putting Super Cruise in its products.

    Smart park is good for single car garages.

  15. Sure! Go ahead and take that really tight parking spot and actually piss off some people! Yeah…That sounds like fun…BTW…$50K plus for a 2 liter? OK then…Why do I suspect that Cadillac is holding the wrong hand at this poker face game?

  16. Honda Accord in that C pillar notch, any one?

  17. The torque numbers aren’t even being measured the same way so you cannot compare.

    GV80 is an attractive utility vehicle

  19. CT5 is a nice car, but nothing inspirational. Lacks bling. See the Genesis G90 for comparison.

  20. I could dice you rags 25 ways but that would be to easy. Stop hating on cars and telling half stories or I will expose you!
