If you're in New York City, um You know you really want to stick to the severe maintenance schedule, but that you know you've gotta win there, man. That thing's amazing vehicle it. It's it'll last for a very long time. If you just Play the papers, they say in the music business. Just do do what it says in the manual. Yeah, except maybe for the transmission. It wasn't that whole thing Jeff about if you got 100,000 Mile car and the transmission shifting well, but the manufacturer's saying you need to change the fluid. You might. You might want to think about that. Yeah, It was definitely something that's not cut and dry. It's something that you need to look at what the current condition of the fluid is, and if it's clean, then you could do a service. If it's already started to burn, or you're having a condition I would recommend, you know, addressing that people make the make they make the mistake all the time on my transmission just started slipping and let me go get the fluid and filter changed. It sounds as being like, Yeah. That's the biggest mistake any. Yeah, that's the biggest mistake. Anybody can make. The other one I think is, you know if it were a full if it were a full wheel drive, I would make ah, whole bunch of different recommendations. In comparison to the two wheel. The two wheel is very. It's a non complicated front wheel drive vehicle, but when they make those vehicles four wheel drive, it becomes a very complicated system that has some specific issues that we Have information on you know Yeah. I mean, it is like Mike, you were saying? It's like you do wanna mean you follow the factory, uh, maintenance schedule, but at the same time you want to consult with somebody that you trust t maintain your vehicle because there are special conditions like let's say You're the person with the Highlander that's regularly towing a boat. There might be a different recommendation from from, you know the place that's normally maintaining your vehicle. So, um No. You follow the factory recommended Pair schedule but then also listened to people. You trust that? No. Um a little bit more than just the factory. The then the owners man. I agree with everything you said David, except I want to Okay. You said the biggest mistake anybody could make the biggest mistake any motors can make is not to the listen to this show. Okay, Okay.

"All right, speaking room. Speaking of call is Let's see what Charlie Finch has to say today, Charlie. Good morning. Good morning, all deliver libertines if they returned to planned obsolescence. Remember that David Goldsmith, how you tease that consumers with new models every year and get them to, you know, go into debt and by a little more. Okay. I was a major marketing strategy and growth America in the fifties. In case you people don't know it Now. Two weeks ago, you had as a guest on the show my friend, radio host Frank Murano. You know Mike Ports, Kelly and auto Liberators that on Thursday night at 11 o'clock while driving and Staten Island on Richmond Boulevard that Frank Morano had a huge pothole and blew out his tire. He then got out of his car and he was on his way to work doing overnights in another station uptown from you guys. And he decided to change his tire. Frank used the wrong end of the Jack but was able to get his tire change successfully. And he got back into his car started to driving, hoping to make it to the station before he went on the air when I am As he was driving in his car. There was a beeping, indicating that his tire pressure was going flat and instead of getting out stopping the car And then looking at his tire. He decided to decrease his speed, hoping to make it to the station, taking that the tire pressure signal which will go up, which it did. And he reminded himself that since he has to drive home after five hours, who live Monday through party on the radio at often falls asleep at the wheel. That if the tire pressure gauge other signal went off as he was driving home that would keep him awake Western for my dear friend and teammate Robert Erskine. In anticipation of his eight o'clock essential segment, which we hope Mike Porcelli will interrupt with a dangerous anecdote about driving with your elbows while you have your arms around a beautiful woman. How many heirs Robert Erskine did Frank Murano make that monologue, which I just get Charlie? Plenty. Plenty of money. Plenty. You know the biggest mistake Frank made Charlie. Charlie. What's the biggest mistake? He didn't call triple A? No, He didn't call me and he knows, And he knows he could have all right on. Thanks, Charlie. The funny thing is Charlie. That was really cool. And the funny thing about flat ties is I was going to talk about flat tires today, too, because your wife have. Ah, my wife called me last night on her way home from work, and she had a flat tire. Mm. Well, you know, it seems to be an epidemic. Flat tires. Culture boy. Yeah, that's it. I am tripling got a culture you are tripling. That's it. All right. All right. Let's see. Let's see what riches calling about from New Jersey rich. Good morning. Morning. I have a Toyota camera water is entering. Through the firewall when it rains. My mechanic tells me that Pine needles clogged, drained. From the pan underneath at the base of the windshield. And my question is how do I clean that out? And how do I prevent that from the clogging from happening again? Jerry. They got pine needles out there and Seaford Long Island. They got everything. What does he do it? You have to take the upper plate of the wipers. The Cover off. Yeah, to get into that and clean it out, too. Preventive. Um, people surrender yet. Stay away from trees. Uh, you know that old song Don't park under the apple tree. Yeah, that's it. You could put a five to make a cover. They do make a cover. They make a capital grille cover not necessarily specifically that car, but they originally for a 65 Mustang. I remember when they made the Mustangs area. That was That was a big mistake, right? Yeah. We're gonna do that. Everything to this thing with you. It kind of looks. Yep. Yep. Remember those that that was just a big giant design floor so rich to your point? Like on the kid car. Wait. Hold is the car. It's over. It's a No. Five Oh, you know, 15 years. I mean, clean it out and you'll be fine for another 15 years. Yeah, I mean, the thing is, there's some 15 years to get to this point. Yeah, There's some cars that are really famous for having Cal drain design problems. I think the 65 Mustang was probably the most famous one. Um, yeah. Robert Hurston's raising his hand. Yeah, he's seen that it was used to rot out. But more modern day cars like they're Volkswagen's analogy is very, very, like every car that comes in because they have ah, insufficient drainage system for their cowl. Cal drains We always whenever the vehicle comes in for annoyed change, we clean the cowl drains. There's some cars that are worse than others. Yours rich. Is not a known, you know, I think just probably right. You know, every 15 years, maybe every seven years you clean it out, you know, and different ways. Sometimes you can get to it from above, like, Jerry said other times you've got to get You got to take the wheels off and then the fender linings come out, But your your mechanic would know how to clean it out. And then, like Johannes says I would stay away from trees as much as you can. Okay. Did you bring up a great point about checking the drains on an oil change? We do that? I'm sure everybody here. Does that. How many shops you think? Do that on an oil change? Yeah. I mean, a lot of cars like you raise the hood. And you see all those leaves over there No matter what car you have. You should just Have somebody clean him off. Help clean it out. Is there If he didn't I'm afraid about. I have another car, which is a Subaru and I'm back. And I'm afraid that I mean, I can't move my neighbors preys on. Do they come into my open my driveway. So I'm afraid that same problem might occur with Subaru. Where can I get a cow will cover one of the maintenance. You know, I don't know. If they like part of the bait and schedule. You can use anything to cover a cowl. You know what I mean? That's true. I mean, you could cover the car, but I would just say make it like, Jeff said, Make it part of the maintenance when you bring it and have them, check the drains and then clear him. Otherwise, you're gonna have to kill your neighbor's trees. Like poison under the ground, you know, But that wouldn't be right. That would be treatment form that the tree falls on the tree falls. And yet on your car, That's no good. So just have your you know where? Yeah, sure. Robert. What do you What do you do in England? Every time you wash the Every time you wash your car, he says weekly. That's what you should be doing in this wintertime. I don't do that. The hood. Removed the DeBary. Yes. Round around the windscreen wiper spindles finished. Great idea, Robert Question for all this shop guys here. How many cause come in for any kind of work. You open the hood and the cowl is completely packed with vegetation. Yeah, mud, sometimes his things. Sometimes these things crawling in that and it's the same when you open the trunk around the gutter. We've had things growing in trunk, Gunness. Yeah, Absolutely. Yeah. So it's good to rich. It's great that you live with that because it's something that everybody should kind of. A little bit more aware of and can keep those Cal drains clear. Thank you very much for your help. I have a question for Mike. All right, Rich. Thanks for calling question for Mike. Question for me. Okay? Do I have a question for Mike? Because we're talking about, you know, the wintertime in Washington car and I was just talking with my car buddies Thea other day about driving on a road with salt. And is it better if you do drive on a road that has solved? Is it better to wash the undercarriage when you get home? Or leave it because there's two schools of thought. There's the If the salt is is mixed with water, then it becomes more of. Ah, more corrosive becomes more of an election about or if you just leave it, there s so what's what's better. I say, Leave it. If you can leave it dry and frozen and dry until the weather is warm, And when you wash it, you can wash it, you know completely And you're not just re wedding. The salt. You know you don't want to. You don't want to do a half a job. Just wet it and let it stay there Wet. Leave it dry until you can clean it. And let it dry out. Which might be April. Thank you. Yeah. Okay, June. That's that's enough information for this half hour. We're going to take a short break and we'll be right back after the break with more. Actual technical information.

There's so much more to it. That that people get very swept up and I just want to say you really just got to be, you know, really have that clarity and yeah, I mean, that's what I help people do, Which is why I'm not offended. Jerry because I believe that there's a great way to do this. And that's why I started car savvy. Any of you want to reach me, But you go. Right, Jeff, Jeff, you agree or disagree. You know, I think it goes back to what David was saying. You know, people need to adjust their expectations. You know, buying a car for $5000 in 2020 21. Yeah. You're not gonna get anything that has any real value for five grand. You know to me that every day, By the way, Yeah, you know you You know if you're gonna buy a car for your daughter You gotta figure going to spend $10,000. So if you bought the company 55 into it. There you are. There's the number makes a lot of sense to me, eh? I don't think buying a 10,000 seems to be something I want to spend $10,000 like. That's not going to do it either. It isn't it, isn't it, Isn't it? Yeah, my clients, you know, that's that's you have to be straight out, you know? Is it? Any entrance is that will really put you really behind anybody who buys a car in that price range? Just needs a really good mechanic. Uh, yeah. And and and and a slightly fatter versus inspection.

You'll have no lemon lawn that whatsoever. Just you have to be aware of what you're doing. Yeah, it's a calculation. And if you go into Ah purchase situation, you're purchasing something with unrealistic expectations and a lot of emotion. Boy, you're you're not going to end up in a good place. You're not going to end up in a good place, but, you know, cutting the cold every classic corporate just ever show me your end up. You end up with something that you don't like. It becomes like buyer's remorse, and it bugs you every single time you get in that car for the next four years or five years ago the thing so it's important to make the right choice. Especially, they're locked into a contract. It's like picking the wrong person in your life. Marriage. That's the other thing is Wait. Knowing when to cut your losses, Knowing when enough is enough. It's called Cut bait and run, right? Yes, yes, yes, that is That is the toughest thing Sometimes when you can't talk about wives because Uh, easy. You could apply to everything in life. You know, we've been I'm sure I'm sure everybody's had the person coming to the shop. They bought some, like BMW. For like $20,000. It's original like a $90,000 car. They have a five year note on it. And it needs, you know, $6000 a work every time it will comes into the shop. Well, for me, it's the Land Rover, but they see this Land Rover and they get a great deal on it. And then to fix the Land Rover is just open up your wallet and you just have to have that's where I got a great deal on it. Don't take that personally. Robert Erskine Yeah? People.

How, Dave that it is a fact Some of these land rovers and range rovers they are They're wonderful, but they're a pain. Keep going on like BMW's. We've just heard. If you get the smallest component that fails and you take it into the shop, there's always a substantial bill. You know, I tell my customers all the time. You know the 1st 100,000. The 2nd 100,000 miles on a car is always a lot more eventful than the 1st 100,000.

Your revenge for burning the White House, right? No, it's it's the fact that you emptied crates of tea. That's what Let's not. Let's not rehash that one to shake. Yeah, thing I find really funny about the Land Rover is that the initial of Exposure that we all had to do You see them like driving in Africa, right? That was the water mountain with a snorkel, and it looks like the most rugged, most durable, never most reliable car ever, and they put it on a regular street instead of the Serengeti.

Whilst England is about to leave Europe I were reporting A really interesting European piece of news other than the Brexit, which is the disengagement of great Britain from mainland Europe, and you're going to hear about that in the coming days, but one very interesting thing that has developed and I think we actually touched upon this, Mike. Maybe a couple of months ago. There's bean a sudden and dramatic increase in the sails off used cars. Now those of you who are hanging onto your used cars in great Britain and Europe probably very happy about this because the prices or the value of your car has gone up by around 25%, which is Really a significant figure. But more to the point what on earth is going on? Why are people rushing out now off all times at this time of the pandemic? And viruses and infections and jumping into jolly old second hand cars, which are not all that comfortable or reliable and the simple answer is well. I've touched upon it. It's to do with the virus. Our authorities here have told everybody to try and keep away from crowds of people and groups of people and mixing on at the same time. They've also said that those of us who have to go out of home to get to work because this is a necessity is thing to go and do on. Of course, it's very sensible because we have bills to pay. You're also advised, keep off public transport. And as I'm talking now, the levels of people using public transport in great Britain alone is down by 50%. So that is a really significant number. But why are people jumping into cars? They're jumping into these older cars because they don't want to use public transport. They don't want to sit next to people. Who are not wearing a face mask on they are assiduously rushing out. I'm buying these cars as a means of getting around and getting into town. On, hopefully trying to find a parking space. They report that I read made no mention off the numbers off cars actually going into London so we will concentrate on London as a kind of a picture as to what is going on. But the fact of the matter is there is a marked up would shift in registrations off older cars in England and across Europe. And there are all sorts of issues which I know Mike is going to ask me. To outline, aren't you, Mike? Yes, But before we do that, rob it. I'd like to invite our listeners to call in and see what their comments on this topic. Our listeners buying more used cause are they avoiding the trains and Busses? They hanging on to their cause. Or sometimes maybe they're selling their cause. Because now they don't have a job to go toe. They don't have to go to the office. They're working from home, so maybe they Might have two or three cause and they're cutting down. Losing a car. Maybe trying to save expenses by eliminating one of their cause. So listeners call in with your comments on this topic at 8886927234. 8886927234 tell us with you what you were doing with your cause situation. Are you buying more use cause or you may be getting rid of one of your cause. Robert, continue, please. Well, what we are looking at here on. I said that we'll concentrate on jolly old great Britain. These air cars, which are valued at just under the £3000 mark. So £3000 gets you into a jolly good, very well used what we would describe here in great Britain as a clapped out. Car When I used the phrase clapped out. I mean, it's done a really good mileage on why it's got onto the forecourt in the first place is because the sensible person who was the previous owner or he makes might even be the fourth owner or even the 10th owner probably got sick and tired of nursing it along and part exchanged it for something newer. And, of course, his old car or Her old car has ended up on a parking lot. So sorry on a sales lot. So these sorts of cars that around the 3 £3000 Mark look very nice. They polish up very, very beautifully. And they sit there. And of course, people are chasing these vehicles. And I used the phrase chasing because it turns out that the Internet is proving to be the most useful tool at the moment for everybody to chase after these cars, and the very same car might be chased. By up to half a dozen people who were all looking at a particular card that they have discovered on a sales lot on the Internet on Dwayne are looking at cars, which You know our kind of halfway between having a little bit of life left in them on? Probably not a very brilliant idea. So to give you an example. The report that I looked at had a photograph off a car. I checked out its registration number on the UK Ministry of Transport Testing site where you can check any vehicle that is registered. I checked out the very same car and there was a list of false as long as your arm and I certainly wouldn't have gone anywhere near it. So what does all of this mean? It might seem a great idea. It might seem a very smart idea to get into your little transport capsule not to get on public transport. But there are issues and if we come into our city here in great Britain, there is something called the ultra low emission zone, which is designed to keep out the very cars that we're talking about. Coming into London whose emissions in many cases depending on the year on Banya factual off the said secondhand car that you're looking at will not be allowed to go into the zone without you paying. A feat and if you don't pay the fee you then get a whopping great big fine, which comes in a brown envelope through your letter box. The other thing is that when you then have the same car checked in for it and your test and you hope that what you bought is reasonably reliable. You may be hit with some staggering costs because You don't know how things are going to pan out. Whilst the car you bought, says he's got a a certificate of road worthiness. We all know that. That's only at the time that the car was tested. So you may find your horror that something like a A B s light or an engine check. Light comes up on the annual test or indeed, a suspension failure comes up. Roberts all costs an awful lot of money and in many cases is not worth keeping the car rabbit. This annual tests. This is the mot the Ministry of Transport Test. Yes. And this is what you were able to access test you just putting in a license plate number, you could get the results of the latest ministry test.

Is there anything since they are expired is or anything. It's like much to do about nothing. It would be very expensive to replace them. David, What do you think? You know, it's a really It's a really good question and no way Toyota may be covered by the recall that's already going on. Uh, well, the way you could find that out would be to you go to the New York I know it's the national highway Transportation.

Um, and it's It's a great resource. But on the question of the air bags, I mean, like, like Like you say, Jeff. There's so darn expensive. The odds are and would be great to hear what Russ Rader would have to say about this, but the odds are, I would say, like, you know. 15 years out. Would your airbags still deploy or 20 years out where they still deploying? Could they still save your life too? Probably?

That is, you know is that you know what happens to the airbag itself. It starts toe degrade. The major degrades the front the front end Biggs I've never heard of accidentally deploying.

Carrie, we run the shop. All right. I appreciate your help on a great show was always thank you, Richard. Thanks for calling. Thanks for calling. Richard was our first technical question of the day. Let's remind the listeners that we still do answer technical questions, even though we're having a lot of fun here with automotive patents and inventions today, uh We still can take your technical questions at 8886927234 or email us at auto live radio at gmail dot com. Robert Erskine. Hello there, Mike? Yes. Do you have any other patents stories or legal battle stories from the other side? Well, there are so many that you don't really know where where? Where to begin. I mean, we we can literally have a days. Session on all of this stuff, but if we narrow it down just very, very simply to the word design. This seems to be a very contentious area. Not so much people stealing intellectual property, which is abbreviated to I P. So whenever you hear the term I p that means intellectual property. The intellectual property I'm talking about. Here are mechanisms. You know, we've we've heard about the Windscreen Wiper delay system. We've talked about at the beginning E s C, which is one of my favorite. That's electronic stability Control, which was invented by a gentleman called Anton Van Zack TEM, who worked for Bush. He's a brilliant Dutch in engineer. I'm talking about design on this word design comes up in many, many patent cases at this is what gets get argued over which is the interpretation of what this this key word designers. Uh, in its simplest falls if we just jump back again Toe what J. L R r R doing jlr felt that their design off their current defender and the one that is going out of production had Bean infringed by the company in the US You have designed a virtual lookalike on if you check it out. It is a fascinating story. And if you compare both the body styles side by side and indeed cleverly digitally overlay. Both off the vehicles. The jail are one and the any else one. You will be hard pushed to see. Well, where is theatrical difference, But there are settled his and it's this word again. Subtlety is ally to the word design. This is what seems to Catch. Catch people out on bond. You have asked me. Can I give any other examples going on here? Well, I can't really because, as I said, I'll just be here all day long. But what I can tell you is that one country off this planet Above everybody else who seems to continually infringe our patents is and you know what I'm going to say. It's a country which has a fantastic history off design and making on that is China. China invented casting it Z. It has a technology history going back. Right the way toe. How well first started out making stuff, but they have assiduously gone about Pinching, as I say in English language, which means to steal people's designs on Dwan of the most favorite ones, which I can relate to Europe is the smart car. The smart car made by.

"Monsieur Mike, I thought you're coming in from England. My lion pools of the confused. Yeah, well, Ah, very good body to all ladies and gentlemen, Those of you who didn't get the French. We are going to be touching upon a fantastic, absolutely brilliant French SUV. Old is going to be revealed. So over to my co I know has got a million questions that he wants to ask me, haven't you, Mike? So, Robert, What have you been test driving lately? Well, I've just given the game away. Whatever I being test, right, well this week very upset to say this a beautiful Poggio 3000 and eight or three double. 08 SUV hybrid for GT left my home here and suffer yesterday I was really devastated on DH. I've bean on it to be given one of these fantastic cars by by Persia to appraise. This is what we are talking about this morning from the other side of the pond, a Suffolk It also Europe. The Post Show three double 08 Hybrid four is a medium size SUV. Have I'm going to start off by saying now, Mike That I regard this as the best SUV that I hope driven that I have got to acquaint myself with if I just plunging very briefly and say that it's not surprising that I'm saying what I'm saying. Because since its launch the Peugeot 3008 let's call it that has won more than 65 International Awards, including the prestigious European car of the war. Award 2017 and in the UK alone, which is where I'm based where I have this wonderful car. It's one a really impressive array of automotive accolades, including The gold car off the year for 2019 at these awards. Just keep keep coming. It's been voted the best medium SUV. By car by a best car rewards for 2020. So that's four consecutive wins in the category. I just don't know of any other SUV that is just consistently winning. Awards, and it's all down to the most brilliant package off engineering and design and finesse that I've really come across in a long time. In a car or a vehicle off this particular type. So that's what we're talking about. Mike. So Is there anything that you don't like about it? That is that you have to pay to buy two get one. Yeah, well, I couldn't find anything that I really didn't like, obviously and truthfully and I could tell our listeners I've not bean given one of these cars and Persia have been sent me. Ah, bottle of French red wine, But they will now set my my wife flowers. Oh, I don't know. I don't know. I couldn't find anything wrong on. I'm gonna just say that my special test it is Thie Robert Erskine, three minute test, which I always apply whenever unfortunate enough to be asked to appraise. A new vehicle that I've never driven and I have never got got into this three minute test. Ladies and gentlemen. Disraeli important way over a minute. Robert, Wait a minute. I gotta get my I gotta write this down. I gotta write this down. Go ahead. Yeah, yeah, I got my pen ready. It's the three minute test. So what you do guys is you open the door. You get into the car. You put your seatbelt on, Andi, I know you're gonna laugh some cause you you You fat around, as we say, trying to get the seat belt in the right position. If after three minutes I haven't got myself comfortable. All the controls don't feel intuitive. And right as though I've bean in this vehicle for a while, and then I get off for my first initial drive. I cannot feel comfortable on I'm fidgeting. Well, I just can't get on with this vehicle. Then I know that the rest of the time is going to be a really pain. Not with the interest Zhou 3000 on a Nate. It's just everything is just perfect. The only other car that I've really ever said this about was the tests with three where everything just seems to come right to your to your hand. You could go straight off. And that means that you're driving safely on DH with confidence. So that is the first thing is that with a straight and now I'm very briefly. Yeah, No, it is it. Is that what they call the ergonomics of the vehicle, the interior of the vehicle that everything's The economic or is that is that economics? Erskine on Is that our economic It could. Well, we have to want to set. There's a lot of science now goes into how a car is designed on packaged and especially how you The end user are going to fit in that interior, which we call the cabin designed is called the interior ofthe cars, cabins, so it's got to adjust to practically everybody's body shape and size. Both ladies and men. People who are tall people who have short people who are wide people who are thin people who are heavy people who are like, you know, it's all got to work. And this is what I found with this vehicle within three minutes. In fact, less than three minutes everything was intuitive in its place, and I felt I could go straight off says absolutely great. And what I found basically is that this car is so comprehensively equipped. We could be here all day running through everything but it that it has. But suffice to say. It is a superb car. It has everything that you'd ever really need. It doesn't have extra stuff, which is just being clever, which the manufacturer's Persia's situational the PSA group, which is where this comes from, which is now part of fit Chrysler and we have to understand that this vehicle is part of the new group. Who will be coming to the Yusa will be touching upon that in just a second. This has been really cleverly put together and you don't need anything more than what actually comes with the car. So what is it? It's a hybrid. But I know certain people out there going, say hybrids are not the most important thing. Manufacturers should be concentrating on all electric. Well, there's going to be a time lag before all of this stuff comes out. So in my opinion, it's better to be doing something than not doing something to reduce emissions. And we know that some hybrids are not as efficient as they could be. Well, this one is really efficient. It has a theoretical range of over 200 miles to a gallon to patrol because the vehicle we had is a 1.6 turbocharged liter gasoline engine. Ally to four electric motors, two at the front to the rear. So it's all wheel drive. It is absolutely superb. It has power that you don't really need to use on a daily basis, but it makes for very safe overtaking entertaining driving, which is important. Because the SUV eyes absolutely the most crowded and populated segment in the market. It's the fastest growing segment. Consumers can't seem to get enough off these SUVs. And most of them are very Blatter. What much fun actually drive, not the Persia. The Persia is just fantastic farm and it's very safely acquit. It has got up to the date..

I mean, you know if they're saying that talking machine shop stuff that meant must it implies that someone perhaps checked it, and perhaps it needs some kind of You saying valves and maybe it needs the valves a leaking, But did anybody do a compression test? Yes, Yes, they did, and try to look for codes. But they said in the 1995 nickels, it's well there you have the it's obi Deal went onboard Diagnostics one, which is an older system, and a lot of people don't even have the This scanning equipment for that, Um, you know you if it sounds like they're talking about some engine work, and you should definitely get a second opinion. What do you think? Did they do a running compression test? I don't know. Persona we meet, not friend we had We had 85 Cutlass supreme. And a 5.0. And compression was £110 at a crank. And when we were running it, it was 50. Turned out it had weak foul spring. Yeah. You know what Joe is trying to tell you is that you really got a You know, it could be a lot of things, and especially if we're talking engine work. You want to get a different, you know, a second opinion on it may be that you know, with that kind of mileage 200,000 miles It needs that but beat like I said, because it's so much money to do that, and I don't know if it's worth it.

Oh, sure, Fill with Freddie is still around, and he's not working anymore retired. But but Yep, serious. I'm going to tell Fred when I speak to him. We were just talking about Fred just a few moments ago. Actually, before the show, I'll give Fred a call and say, Robert says Hi. Really? Thank you very much. Okay right now. All right Now we're going toe instead of going to Robert Erskine. Right now we're going to take Steve. From New Jersey. See what Steve's question is, Steve? Yeah, I'm here. OK, What's your question? Okay, So I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna. And I just got new tires at Firestone for new tires. And, um you know my time.

So my question is, Is there anybody he would recommend in this area that I get A, uh of mechanic of the look at it? Sure. Where are you in New Jersey. In Morristown. Morristown. Well, How far is that from? I don't know. Do New Jersey too. Well, how far are you from Garfield? Well, I know what Garfield is about a half hour 40 minutes. Well, that's what it's worth The trip that I was a little go see Joe Guerrino. He's about the best guy you're going to find in New Jersey, and what's a number 973. All right, 772. By 8736. OK, great. I appreciate it because I wanna get it done if you need it, but I wanted, you know someone that really knows that you know about it, So I mean, it's Joe really knows he should be in bed on that sure, And you're really smart. You're smart, Steve Tow. We're talking about second opinions. When when you know when we have medical things going on, and they want to do some big deal on us. We say, you know, I want a second because it makes sense. And it really This is the right move on your part, officiated one of the quick question. My wife has a Toyota Camry. She got her father and the 1999, but only has 115,000 miles on it, but Something that Ah been are the front headlight that night? It doesn't provoke. Jack. Looks like you know, they're fogged up right there fogged up. Year. Harry takes the whole lighter. Just you know, you don't want to hear the price now, but you know, you can nowadays that you Khun recondition the the lenses on clear those lenses up because they make him They made him at a plastic in 99. They still may come out of plastic and They just fogged up. You can get them reconditioned and you'll get much better illumination in recondition the lenses remove the cataracts and you can put high higher intensity boy itself to buy the parts. What's that again? Is something that I could try to do myself like every place in parts. You know they were kits available that you Khun Bride to clean the headlights. There are If you go on YouTube, you'll see all kinds of videos on how to do it yourself. Okay. I thought I'll deal with that. All right. Good luck, Steve. Thank you. Okay. Now, if anybody else has questions, Corliss at 8886927234 you think we could fit Robert Erskine Right now We're going to go to Robert Ozcan, who's been patiently waiting. Rather, I'm very, very patient. Really very patient. Except without whether a very warm welcome to you this morning from Suffolk, England. It's cold. It's wet. It's rainy. Sounds like normal operating procedure over there. Right lobe operations around early morning patrol, not breaking news at all. Not breaking use. No, no, but this is breaking you. So what are we talking about today from jolly old England and especially Europe. Which we are still a part ofthe. We haven't left Europe yet, but watch this space we probably will be. What are we talking about today? Well, the U. That's the European Government and authorities are seriously looking with European car manufacturers to looking at this wretched problem off excessive speeding. Had one way that they are looking at it Is there posed the question. Should the accelerator pedal or the gas pedal? Is you calling on your side of the pond? Should the gas pickle be used as a means of curbing speeding? So the idea is that if you're going through a particular area where there is a speed plate Which is indicating the speed the safe speed that you should be driving at. That doesn't mean to say that you should be driving at it. If it's not safe. We will come on to that in a second. Does that mean that if you want to exceed that, and you firmly shove your big, heavy foot right foot onto the gas levels You're lead it for what?.

We're always looking at the vehicles we work on. And we say we could have designed this much better than my right many time, but but I think I think I think you've built Everything the way we would have done it. I don't think that improve on it. Yeah, it's it's I mean, I really can't say I don't. I don't get excited about these types of vehicles too often, but this is really It's almost mouthwatering toe. Look at the pictures and here's a description and hear the I love the process. You know this whole idea of a storyline and just like, what is somebody in the real world there really life. Like what?

Paul, I think we're lucky that Ford brought you over here from Britain. To design this beautiful piece of machinery for us, But I have to ask Robert Erskine if what is the reason that you guys seem to design things better in Britain, people from Britain? Robin. Hello. Very nice to help people want also sounds But you have to say absolutely fascinating and really cool at the market Now dropped off in 30 seconds. Stay. Why Brian happens to be better than anybody.

"I'm here in the studio with David Goldsmith, Jerry Pistore in Joanna Pitcher and appear story. And joining us in our virtual studio is Robert Erskine in England and Tim Kid case from wherever his undisclosed location is Streaming from Yonkers, New York. Robert, are you with us? I don't think Robert can hear us. We are experiencing what we call technical difficulties. And I guess we need a radio mechanic to fix things, because when things break as we all know, takes a mechanic to fix it. It's absolutely we're putting out an emergency message for a radio mechanic. Well, but the show must go on. So here we go. It's it's really actually It's great being back and the technology will. I'm sure it's not going to fail us today. But it's been four months of reruns. And it's just everybody. I've gotten so many calls from So many of my customers saying, Where are you guys? Where are you guys and We were out there keeping the car is going Nobody wanted to take their public transportation and we had a key and we're actually all of us, Jerry, right? We're all busier than ever trying to keep on when the governor said that we were automotive. Ah service repair service was on essential service. He wasn't lying. We gotta go. It's too bad. We don't know how to fix radio problems. Well, what's amazing is that February March ample, nobody came out right. And now you know, a lot of good once they started to, you know, Once New York got things a little bit more under control. It was You know, and we're going to phase three. We got this huge. I call it a tsunami of vehicle of people coming in with their vehicles. One state lifted the alternate side of street once they put alternate side of the street parking back in because they wanted to clean the streets. We got a big wave. And then once people started going backto work, you know, and people were fearful. Of taking public transportation. Who it's been. It's actually been very, very stressful for my customers and for us because The supply lines or not the supply lines just about Yeah, ups. We got people in now we've got we've got Tim Cook case. Do you hear us, Tim? Um, Robert, is Robert there? Yes. What was there Just about? Oh, okay. All right. All right. So, Robert, I know you've been waiting patiently to give this you Enlightening reports for this week, so begin Well, we have a very interesting story that's broken here in jolly old United Kingdom that is suffering its hottest heatwave in 17 years, which has absolutely nothing To do with what I'm about to say you would think. It probably has a lot to do with what I'm about to talk about. There's a campaign that's being launched that's called bad advertising. My bad advertising is a very powerful levy group who have identified that it's bad advertising that's encouraging consumers here. In Great Britain on also probably bang on Europe to rush out and buy nothing but SUV's. I've always thought most advertising was bad. Yeah, well, advertising is the marketing man's psychological rich. Get going, gets all the juices flowing to reach for your credit card or check book to go buy something that you haven't necessary even thought about. They're very good. These guys They are the best of the best brainwashes believe you. Me They are the best. We will do a report about advertising. Also also motive, you know, advertised anyway, this group have looked at what is happening in the SUV segment, which would be reporting on auto lab here or Sometimes is the fastest growing segments ofthe car purchase. It is insatiable. There are more SUVs on the roads, more SUV hybrid types. That's not I'm not talking about hybrid power, but we'll come on to that in the second than any other segment at the moment, if you if you don't have an SUV that you are no one you ever get into your SUV. My opinion. Is that this group who are calling this campaign bad advertising a probably quite right because Thie SUV is one of the most on aerodynamic. Moz. Transform. I think off the planet is basically a break. I mean, we need to be running around in birds. They're on aerodynamics. They use a lot of fuel. They are very heavy compared to compact size vehicles on lightweight vehicles, which is really what we want to be using. Whilst the automotive industry manufacturing the pump our wonderful advertising to say, Look, we've got a hybrid SUV press a button. It goes on. It goes off it goes, It goes off, like adding soap to your English fish and chips whenever you wish. I had this really. It's not a great segment of the moment because we're very concerned about global warming were very concerned about fuel efficiency on the hybrid is just a stop gap so out of the blue This fantastic organization has come up with the banner. Bad advertising on there, repeating to the government at the time of the pandemic. As we're climbing out, we're rethinking almost everything that we'd be doing. The one area where we really need to be looking at eyes is why do we need to be using SUV's that are not efficient on off? Frankly, I I can tell you why Robert the reason why, and I think we learned this from Harold Vendela in the show. Is that the rate of profit in building one of these SUV's is tremendous, and there's a lot more money to be made by the manufacturers, and they and when they sell of An escalator, as opposed to a Cavaliere Cavaliere. Thank you. There's just a lot more money to be made. So there is. AH, there's a reason of toe push. You know, you want to push a product that makes you a lot of money. The of course, that they're not taking into consideration that the rest of the equation which is you know we are the whole world is moving in a direction to be more fuel efficient. Pollute last and you know, but there's money to be be made there, and advertising is very, you know, seductive and like Yeah, we have a conundrum. I guess you'd say, write it. But is the advertising cream it creating the demand for SUVs or people? Naturally demanding as you've, You know, that's a good point, Mike. And I think at this point people are the advertising been so effective that people just lust for these things. I mean, the market demands it..

And with us this morning is David Goldsmith. Who's in a digital studio, along with Robert Erskine from England. Good morning, Robert. Very good morning to your Michael. And how exciting a truly wonderful it is to be back. Joining you live off the other side of the pond. I understand that you've got three months worth of reports to give us Yes. So I got to start now. So go and get your slippers on top of a cup of tea with plenty of sugar and some English cons. I will be here. For another three months listening to me talking non stop. Okay. We'll just have to settle for one report for today. And I think I understand you have an electrifying report today. Yeah, I really do have an electrifying report and I know that some of you listeners In the United States listening to us today that you're probably going to say I know this. This doesn't sound exciting. We've already got one. Britain's first lithium ion battery Gigafactory has been announced on work is starting next spring, God willing virus or no virus? On this establishment is going to be built in Ah ah parts of England, which is called Wales. It's going to be nearly 1.2 kilometres long by over 35 meters high on what's really exciting about this is that this just isn't going to be any any gigantic shed. As you guys call them know this is going to be designed with utter design finesse from the pen off Penan Farina design studio who will be responsible for how this whole facility is going to look. How it's going to blend into the landscape on DH. It's going to be the third biggest building on mainland Europe, so it's quite quite something. But you're not on mainland Europe, are you? We're also bailout of Europe now and a lot of people here use devices. Yes, but there's something called the English Channel came along, which has protected us. From many a person who has wanted to try and effect status on, uh we will hear as time goes on that the departure of great Britain from Europe is probably not going to be as bad as all the critics have made it to be at this time. There are some fantastic positive. One of the positives is, in fact, this fantastic Factory because our batteries here and you know, I'm talking as though we are already producing them and they're rolling off the production line are British factories of probably if not certainly goingto undercut the pricing off the batteries, which most Evey manufacturers that's electric vehicle manufacturers. Have they get those supplied at source from China and Asia? So of course they're import duties. So there is a cost leverage that goes on straight away on the other thing you have to understand is that to use the phrase toe Shap. These from China and Asia to mainland Europe is a very, very bad thing, indeed, because you're pumping out 02 into the atmosphere. With your super tankers and so on and so form and super ships, which are carrying all these amazing containers full of matches. They're pumping Co. Two so at a stroke. Having this facility on mainland Britain, which is a gesture to bang love. Europe is going to be a fantastic thing. Robert, Do you have any information on the battery technology? Is there any new technology in these batteries? Now at the moment from the press release that I had on DH will come on in a moment with the actual gentleman that I spoke to whose brainchild this A Liz at the moment, I understand that they're going to be supplying Be up to the minute lithium ion batteries that most vehicles are being supplied with, But they're looking into the feature almost immediately by Looking at advanced, innovative technologies, which Britain seems tohave on edge on. I'm gonna blow Britain's trumpet for a second. The facility is already being designed to take on board. You advanced technologies, which will supersede The lithium ion battery are what's really curious is that the lithium ion battery was actually first developed here by Stanley Witting Him I brilliant English chemist who was working for Exxon Mobil at the time in the 19 seventies. When we have the oil crisis, Then this gentleman realized that there was a really, really positive way out. Off the solution of being reliant on just fossil fuel at he was looking at the element lithium, which is one of the lightest metals that we know because lithium is number one off the chemical. Formula rating on it's also extremely light, and it's got something most peculiar call it is that we know to man so We have a bit of an edge going on here, so it's it's very exciting. So you really mean it. Sorry. Go ahead. No one's just going to say, you know, that was the first thing that came to my mind that you hear that The technology of batteries is changing so so rapidly And I'm thinking Oh, my gosh, they're goingto These Brits. They're gonna build this giant Super Stadium of that, you know, building lithium ion batteries that will be, you know, obsolete by the time the buildings built, so it's great to hear that they're already you know that forward thinking and that because the technology you just hear about these things, I guess it was Moscow came up with didn't think they're talking about this battery That's going to be What I mean. I know it's it's not really true. The 1,000,000 mile battery or something, but there yes, that are changing so rapidly. Good Tio here. They're going to be leading edge on that. Yeah, well, look, you know nothing As we know, stands still, he we are with a you bright, energized auto lab who would've thought.
