Alyssa Milano Trades in Her "White Supremacist" TESLA for a Nazi VW
"Alyssa Milano goes on Twitter. Oh, I love this. And she's so happy to tell everybody. I gave back my Tesla. I bought a Volkswagen I love it. I'm not sure advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn't seem be a winning business model, Elon is she the dumbest leftist cult member of all time. This is the girl who wore a crocheted face mask during the pandemic, not realizing that there are holes in there that are as big as the Panama Canal to a germ like COVID. But what she's not understanding or didn't bother to care about is what many of us have known. Volkswagen was literally founded by the Nazis and Adolf Hitler. It originated during the Third Reich in an attempt to create an affordable car for German people. So Volkswagen used both Jewish and non Jewish forced labor. And they also operated for a concentration camps and 8 forced labor camps on its property. But listen, Alyssa Milano loves her Volkswagen, but will not be caught dead in a Tesla.

"For our audience in Europe I've been reliably informed that the VW rabbit was the VW golf We know what the VW golf is And Tom the VW golf Mark one wasn't called the VW golf in America because they thought it might sound too upscale for Americans Do you like that I like it Yeah I like that You know that is meant to be a budget car and the work golf was just gonna sound too much scale for you something The rich guy down the block I don't know if you caught it a Carmen gear which was gorgeous I mean Carmen gears were just an actor When I got that message later I couldn't stop laughing Yeah And said VW rabbit which like you were on the expressway and you put your foot on the accelerator It happened Evidently Tom were American so we can't fully appreciate that It should have been European to enjoy that Let's look at the price section Equity features this morning look like this We're about unchanged on the S&P we're positive two tenths on the NASDAQ On the year you know where we are year to date We're down 13% on the NASDAQ 100 The S&P 500 were down 7 8 9 percentage points so far Where is the fed put Great sense in a Bridgewater says it's not here You might have to see a move of 15 to 20% And a lot of you are on board with that message now after we heard from chairman Powell yesterday So what did we hear We had a chairman that's got a ton of faith in the underlying economy A ton of faith in the labor market so much so that he believes you can take interest rates up quite a bit without threatening the labor market So to focus now on the front end because he kept reemphasizing how important the fed funds rate was as a primary tool for managed to policy And the balance sheet will get to Mike gay for a Barclays on that in just a moment But this is what it means to the bond market Who's ten to 30s Sit on twos 66 basis points December 15th at the close the last time the fed met So much has changed since then With three 1% we've reached one 20 this morning just short of that now you tire by three or four basis points on two So level one tens that curve is flatter But that move in twos is baking in a whole lot more into this FX market Deutsche Bank and Matt Leslie now looking for 5 hikes this year for the dollar it looks like this The dollar index TK stronger and 97 handle a 97 on DX Y you've got to go back to lie 2020 to see it this strong But the thing that keeps beating away in the background despite all of this the stronger dollar higher interest rates crude keeps climbing 88 Brent Tom three 90 My message and this is a rare message folks after a fed meeting the markets are still adjusting this morning Still adjusting right now WTI crude at 88 and Brent with a break of 90 again That's the cross asset price action Let's get some single names and say good morning to remain Good morning Hey good morning John yeah and the markets are still adjusting Of course not only to yesterday's news out of the fed but also of course to the earnings picture Microsoft and its earnings beat wasn't quite the savior that some people thought it would be Of course we also got Tesla earnings last night as well as Intel Both of those shares down in the pre market here despite some relatively encouraging numbers here but not enough for the street We're going to get Apple earnings after the bell Of course the biggest weight in the S&P 500 Those shares higher by about 7 tenths of a percent here in pre market but remember in the last quarter that fiscal fourth quarter they lost about $6 billion in sales because of supply chain issues and Tim Cook had already guided saying that could be worse for the fiscal first quarter which is the quarter that ended at the end of December So keep an eye on those numbers and how the supply chain is affecting them Netflix shares are given a little bit of a boost to the market up about 5% here right now Bill ackman disclosing a stake of about 3 million shares which would make him a top 20 shareholder We'll see what type of effect it has on this stock going forward into the cash open And AMD shares basically flat on the day China regulators signing off on that silence deal Remember the U.S. and European regulators have already approved this deal is basically a go right now $34 billion deal Flip up the board here Inflationary pressure is still the talk right now of the street We got McDonald's earnings The actual press release talked about comp sales which were up It was pretty healthy but you had to look at the supplemental release which was not included with the current release and they actually talked about operating costs operating costs of 14% Tom and the idea here now that the CEO saying that's really going to eat away into some of the gains they've been making on sales food cost labor costs really the big story here for McDonald's In the supplemental release there are also showed that number of times that John and I are having breakfast there You don't as well Remain bostic very importantly with Apple this afternoon on the clothes And we'll look forward to seeing McDonald's And now from New Jersey came into the studio this morning tea can He said did you really go to McDonald's And then of course and he sees the receipt at the end and pretty clear some that that breakfast we had didn't cost 5.99 No Cleaning Little shout out to our good friend Jonathan tish this

if oil in this fancy thing OER which is the rent payment or the mortgage payment those two are going up How does inflation come down if those two are going up Good morning everyone and thank you for having me on Well I think inflation would come down in that so if oil is still high and therefore OER rents and shelter is still elevated The way for inflation to come down is you need a reversal and

"Well, miss gilda, that's her name. She has a problem in if it's the least that humid or it's raining, you push down on the gas pedal and the car stalled out totally. I have to rev it up quite a bit just to get it over the little hump out of the garage. Once the car is warmed up, do you still have that problem? No. It's only once you've gone a couple of blocks, it'll disappear. It's getting at that couple of blocks. Do you stall out maybe 7 8 times in those two blocks? And once it warms up, it runs fine. Yeah, once it warms up, it's fine. But it's only when it's damp. We have the stock answers. You know, it could be a set of faulty wires or especially just one wire. These wires, they spark plug wise in this car have this metal jacket that goes over the spark plug boot, and it's very easy for one of these things to short circuit. So it could easily be that that's in fact what the problem is. When the spark plug wires are old, what happens is they sort of develop little cracks and the electricity which is on its way to the spark plug. Doesn't get there because if there's a lot of moisture around it, it provides a path for some of that electricity to escape and get somewhere else. And you wouldn't notice it on a nice dry day because there isn't that path because moist air is a better conductor than dry air. So I mean that would be the classic answer to the problem that you describe. So that might be good enough. We hope it is because I don't think we have another answer. So you might have to take this one. If you've never replaced the spark blood wires in 6 years, then it almost is certainly that that's what you need. Well, they've been replaced. I know that. How do you know that? Every part that could be replaced in this car was. Oh, hardly. In the first two years. No, no, no, no. I took it to the dealer at 1500 miles and he told me that my brake pads were worn. That's not at 1500 miles. Elizabeth, can't you take a hint? Didn't you dump this car immediately? Oh, I love her dearly, though. She's mine she's paid for. I mean, it's a nice silver little. She goes when I really need her to. She says, you are a wonderful person. From my husband, tells me. You must be. I mean, to put up with this kind of nonsense from the day one. I mean, from the first moment that you have the car, you're nothing but ridiculous problems with it. And yet you love it. That's good. That is good. That is laudable. One of the main reasons I love it is because the radio does stay on when you turn. Yes, I think that's a very, very clever design. We know you're a goner, the change the spark plug why is, and I'll bet you that solves the problem. Things are spark plug wires. Yeah. They hear that, rob. He's able to go out and do it right now. He's going to go out and do it for you right now. No, today is our anniversary. Happy anniversary. Thank you. Here's a test you can do if you want to take a look at the wires. Next time you have a nice good rainstorm, start up the engine and raise the hood. And a really dark knight and you will see a sort of halo of blue light around the spark plug wide. It'll look like the aurora borealis. Yeah. And that will be an absolute irrefutable evidence that that's what you need a spark plug wires. You are suitable. Irrefutable. Good work. Irrefutable like the Brits would say it. Yeah. But what the hell they know about English? Yeah, those wires have made out of aluminium too. See you later. Elizabeth. All right, we'll let you know. We're heading out to Boston next week. Bye bye. One 803 three two 9 two 8 7. Hello, you're on car talk. Hello. Hi, who's this? Hi, this is David Shapiro. I'm calling from St. Louis. Hi, David. I know a guy named David Shapiro. You are not he? Well, I lived in Boston ten years ago. And actually, he pronounces his name Shapiro. Does that mean he's some kind of a snob? Yes, he's got it wrong. Hey, I've often wondered about that. Yeah, I have two. It's a nice guy. Where can we go for a day? Yeah, maybe. Yeah. What's up? Is it time for the question? Yeah. I don't know. You want to bit some what do you want to do? Small talk, I want to talk about the wife and kids. What do you want to do? Well, let's see my son isn't mere member. My question is this. I have an 87 Nissan maxima, which I like a lot. Yeah, nice car. At about 40,000 it's not about 50,000 miles, but at about 40,000 miles, I was driving uphill and it tried the downshift into a lower gear and when it did, it I'm not sure how to describe it. It felt like when I used to drive a manual transmission car and didn't know what I was doing. And it would kind of when clunk be a description. Now if I stomped on the gas to take it back up into a higher whatever you do, when you stomp on the gas, like goes into a lower gear, actually when you stomp on the gas. It would flip into gear into the lower gear. Or if I let up on the gas a little bit, it would shift up. Now, I took it in to I take it in every 3000 miles change the oil with these quick loop places. And they check off everything that they check and supposedly, they check the transmission fluid and all that. And I noticed the owner's manual says manual and automatic transaxle gear oil. Is that the same as transmission fluid? Yes, CC. Check that every 15,000 miles. Anyway, so one around 40, I'd say about 42, 44,000 miles. And this would happen only occasionally. It didn't happen every time. So I figured well, I've got to attend to this at some point. But I took it into one of the quick lubes and they said, gee, you're transmission fluid has got all kinds of junk in it. It's black. Oh, everything's Eskimo pies in there. Footballs. He offered it to me, but I wasn't that interested, but there was a lot of black kind of metal pieces and stuff. So you didn't see first hand, you just. Well, they hold the dip stick out and they say, look at how horrible that is and you nod your head and pretend that you know what? Plus, that was out of the car of the bay next to yours, but that's beside it. You can't believe any of those guys anyway. And that's what I'm wondering about. I had them change the transmission fluid and it hasn't done this since. So I tend to think that they knew something of what was going on. My question is, number one, was it likely the transmission fluid or is there something more serious? Have I done any real damage to the car? Should I in other words should I sell it before someone hears the show or somebody who's done with it? What have I done to my car and how often should I be checking this? Well, go ahead. Did you say, well, well, well, well, when you first described the problem, the first thing that popped into my mind was that you were low on transmission fluid. Because being low on transmission fluid would cause it to do exactly what you described. Also having dirty transmission fluid are a dirty filter would cause it to do what you described. And so I was going to suggest that you either top it up or change it. But it shouldn't be that gunky at 40,000 miles. My guess is that when they think it's too late now, it may have been that in his zeal to sell you a transmission fluid change. What he really sold you was a full transmission. Okay. Yeah. That's right. They don't he says they drained it. Do they? Yes. No, in fact, he did. I'm sure he did. But in doing so, my brother is suggesting. It was a slight amount of sleaze involved in the transaction. And the guy was trying to say, oh, look at all this junk in here. You've got to change the fluid. And by accident, he filled it up to the right place. By virtue of the fact that he drained the old stuff out and filled it to the right level..

"Hello, we're back to saint NPR's car talked with us clicking back the tablet brothers and we're here. Of course, to answer your questions about cars and car repair and how to get a lifetime supply of Eskimo pies. That's what turns you on. You know, for those of you tuning in for the puzzler. Yeah. Not gonna be any puzzler. No, the puzzler. Although I mean, it's good that the puzzler is on vacation because it gives us an opportunity to read all the old mail, which I've been doing, and there are some very interesting letters, even when the answers are wrong. The letters are interesting. Here's one. Remember the one about the drill a hole through the we reinstitute the puzzler? No, no, no, this is excellent. This is a letter from Bill Hayes. He's referring to your puzzler if you take a core that 6 inches long. That was a wonderful puzzler. He described to take exception to the answer. He brings exception to the answer. I think he has the right answer. And then he says, something about you can only do this with a diameter of 6 inches and the diameter of the hole that you drill is zero. Then he says granted it takes specialized tools to bore a hole of zero diameter. I can't be bothered with such trivial manner. He solves it for you. Cynical individuals might claim that this is the same as not boring a hole at all. However, I am convinced that most well equipped garages have the apparatus for this operation. An observation that goes back to a shop in California, I used to take an old 57 Chevy. It would come out with no charges for parts, a huge labor bill, and as far as I could determine exactly the same problems as the car had when it went in. Consequently, this is brilliant. The way people do things. Consequently, the easiest way to determine the amount of zero diameter machine work that has been done on something is to note the amount of the labor costs. Isn't that clever? Then he says, on a philosophical note, improvements in technology could eventually allow us to boreholes with negative diameters. Yes. Bill. That was one of the good letters. Bill is way out there. I mean, I think these are interesting concepts, a hole with a negative diameter. That's not nothing. I mean, did you think it's less than nothing? One 803 three two 9 two 8 car talk. Hi, this is Elizabeth McCarthy from algonquin Illinois. Hi, Elizabeth. What's up?

"That was tough. When the car is still relatively cool, I haven't driven it a long period of time. It does doesn't happen. If I drive it for sea about a half an hour in rush hour traffic by the time I'm where I'm going to go, it's there. Jeez, this is Sonya Annie's. I mean, when you first start when you first describe the problem, I was going to leap right into the fray and suggest that you had a stuck caliper. However, everything you've told us subsequently has little by little whittled away this caliphate theory. And so it's now I'm now reduced to asking you what color the car is in the hopes that my dim witted brother is gonna come up with some clever real answer. Well, he's sitting here looking just a stupid as he always looks. Come on. You got any ideas at all? I do. I have in fact probably some very good ideas. If you shut up for a minute, tell Beth what they are. Okay. I think Beth that you have a bad ball joint. Okay. And the reason I suggest this and is that we have seen this actually happen. Really? In the laboratory. In the shop in the shop. And it can come and go and ball joints can cause vibrations at certain speeds. So the fact that you don't have any vibration, we were taking a word for this. We have no reason to believe you, because you could be a liar for all. We know, but we believe you what we try to believe when you say that you have no other vibrations at any other speeds. So that eliminates a warped disc. We're questioning the veracity of everything you've told us so far. Mostly based on the fact that the number one to see the screws go. No, because a lot of these things seem to be inconsistent. Because if you do have a bad ball joint, then for example, machining the rotors should not have made a difference, but I can stretch it a little bit and see that if the road or a little warped, you hit the brake, it begins to shake and it sets up a sympathetic vibration in the ball joint. I could almost believe that. Okay. So yeah, you know what I think it is actually. If it isn't a ball joint, those are easy to check by someone who knows how to check them. Not only is it easy to check, but it's very important that it be checked because the ball joint is what's holding the wheel to the rest of the car. And if it's worn enough to make a vibration occur it's bad. It's bad enough to make to break and therefore have the wheel fall off. But you did plant one little seed of doubt in my mind when you said for the first half hour so that you drive it, it's okay. And so I'm going to when they check it out and find out that the ball joins in the tie rod ends are okay. Okay. Then you can find this very hard to believe, but I think I'm gonna suggest that you have.

And when I break or downshift right around 30 to 25 mph, the whole front end seems to shimmy. Steering column, everything. And then once I get past 25, everything's fine. This only happens when you're slowing down and not when you're speeding up. Yeah. So when you're going from 30 to 20. Yeah. Sometimes like right in the middle between the two. Yeah, I'm 25. It starts right around 30. But I feel accelerating from 20 to 30. It doesn't happen? No. But it'll only happen if you're decelerating and stepping on the brake. Yeah. Well, you can say that. Yes she did. No, you didn't. She said when I'm down shifting. Can we run the tape back? So it does only happen when you're stepping on the brake. Yeah. Okay, because I was baffled, frankly, and it doesn't take much to baffle me. No. I'm not sure about that. Just ask me. How you have over a 125,000 miles in this car? No. Why not? I'm going to band pool. You're in a Santa. So how many miles does it have? Just a little over a 100,000. Almost enough. Yeah. Yeah. It's been doing it for a while. It has been. Yeah. Have you taken it any place to have it looked at? I see, I have had numerous frontend alignments, those last a week. Wasted money. Yeah. So they aligned at net seems to fix it for a week. Yeah. Nah, that was in your mind. Yes. It was all in your mind. You just wanted it to be fixed and said, it seems a little bit better. Carpooling that week, driving in the van. Okay. Then what else has been done? Then I had the breaks redone and they took the rotors and they said the rotors were warped. So they replaced them. I don't know whether they replaced them or reground them. Okay, either either one. Yeah. In any event, obviously that didn't help you. I don't know why you wouldn't be back after 6 months. Oh, so that fixed it for 6 months. About that, yeah. Okay, so I like that. I like that. I like that too. I think we're gonna be safe here. What else? And well, it's back. And it seems to be getting worse. And if I break real hard, it Jimmy's real hard. Okay. And if I have to slam the brakes on, I'm already at the car will go out of control. Now if you're breaking, say, it's 60. Don't you get any hint of a shimmy? No. No, only happens when I'm between 25 and 30. And if you are breaking like at 60, you wouldn't feel any pulsation in the brake pedal or anything? No. Really? Really? Really? We're in trouble now. Sounds like one of those fabricated questions. No, well, what color is this car Beth? Blue. It's blue. You only had three colors. Yes. And if you notice that this shimmy problem occurs more frequently when the gas tank is more than half full? Yes. It happens all the time. All the time. Okay, I'm all set now. Okay..

"Business happens? Even if you drove like four a half hour and the car had been running smoothly when you went to shut it off, it would backfire sputtering. You would do this. You know it. Yeah. Heard me. My brother's cat is the same. They all do that. That's what the deal is. They all do that. Well, it didn't do this forever. I got it for about four years now. And it runs fine when I get it going. No, in fact, it didn't even do this this winter because it hadn't been doing it this winter. You would have taken not 6 or 7 tries to get it started, but 60 to 70. Right. And it would have stalled repeatedly and annoyingly the point where you would have done something drastic. So now you've done something drastically called that's right. I'll tell you what's wrong with this. I suppose I figure it out. What's wrong is that your choke is stuck halfway. And that explains everything. The reason it won't start and continue to run is that your choke isn't closing when the engine's cold, and it's just all gummed up and it sees and like the half closed position. So it's not helping you when the engine is cold because it isn't choking enough. And it's making the thing run it faster idle than normal because it never opens. So on the engine warms up and is supposed to come down to what's called the curve idle speed, it doesn't because the choke won't let the cam move because the choke is stuck. So it raises. So when you turn the key off and it's running it's a 1500 RPM, it wants to continue to run and what you hear that is dieseling. Yeah, this is a classic symptom of a choke that's not working. So class guy that tuned it up and changed your wires. If he had taken off the air cleaner, brought off to your career. And looked, he would have noticed that the choke is just jammed. Then this happens to these spray the heck out of it with some kind of cobra to clean a bang it with a hammer and it'll probably it's not working again. He's gonna work it back and forth and free up and loosen up and dissolve all the gum and varnish that's accumulated on this thing for the last few months. This is in the carburetor? Yeah, it's actually right on top of the copper. The choke is an inside the carburetor with the linkage, which is usually what's responsible for sticking it is outside. If you can't figure it out, he's in a lot of trouble. Right. Yeah, this is old technology. This is a simple problem Pete. I'll do it. This could be fixed. If you really wanted to, you could fix this problem with $2 worth of gum out. I probably have it outside. You probably do. If you have a can of WD 40 with that cute little nozzle thing on it, you just spray the heck out of everything and that'll do it. And then wash it off with carburetor, clean so you don't leave that residue of that solvent behind and it'll be great work for a week. See you later. Thank you very much, guys. Thanks for your call. Bye bye. Guess what? The puzzler answer and more calls are coming up.

"Of a 73 Volvo. But that's irrelevant, as you know. Well, it isn't it isn't. Well, it is. That's okay. And you have to have it because otherwise your brakes don't work too well. That's true. Right. I mean, they'll work okay. And you might not even notice it under normal driving conditions. But if you had to stop really fast. How well I know. You wouldn't make it. That's right. You tend to hit the brakes and then a second later, it kicks in. I mean, what's wrong with the pump? It's just making a clickity clock sound, right? No. No, it's not working. It's not working. Oh, it doesn't work at all. It's still working because the diaphragm probably blew. You can rebuild this pump, you know. You can't. Yes. Well, maybe you can't, but it's rebuildable. It is rebuildable. Yeah. Now there may be something else wrong with it. It may be that the pump isn't rebuildable because the internals are broken and it's not just the diaphragm that's worn out. Well, what do they want for a new one? Somebody ballpark did somewhere around four or $500. You could buy three volvos for that. Right. Yeah. Someone who didn't, someone who didn't want to do the job, but it's a trivial job. And you could easily go to a junkyard. Yeah. And if you could fend off the attackers there, you could probably buy one and have your local gas station put it on. Okay. It's simple to put on. This is a 73. This is the one that sits right on top of the right on top. On top of the engine. You can see it. Yeah. It's right up there. It's the one. But a basic mechanic's capability person like me would not want to tackle rebuilding. Well, I'll tell you what. Yours doesn't work anyway. So you have nothing to lose by taking it apart. And I think you could probably handle it. Okay. Take it to go to the Volvo dealer. You have a Volvo dealer in percival. Papa's ferry. Well, we can reason. Yeah. Yeah, North Carolina. Anyway, go to the closest Volvo dealer and buy a rebuild kit for the pump. You may have to call them an advance they have them on special order one. This is an exactly the latest model. It's not usually something they have a lot of ground. They might if it fits other ones too. But I would lean toward the junkyard solution. I really would. No, I'd lean toward rebuilding it. Because you're going to buy one at the junkyard and it's going to have a broken diaphragm as well. Take it apart. And if that doesn't work, you can go to the junkyard, get a use in between the one you had on the car all these years. And the junkyard one, you'll have plus the rebuild kit. You'll have enough pieces to make two of them. Right. And the submarine sandwich with your own. So I'm safety the way, right? Yes. But do fix it because it might make a difference. I am in a panic situation. It's our town card. You know, it's the one that gets us from here to the grocery store. A great car, isn't it? It's wonderful. It is. Try to rebuild it, and it's easy. I mean, this is not brain surgery. But do it to it soon. Simple technology. Promise. Oh, yeah, you bet. All right, Lisa. Thanks a lot. Thanks for your call. See ya. Bye bye. Bye bye.

Because this is only the first portion of the poorest part of help lint william the skills you need to make a battery are very different from working on an assembly line. What could these changes mean for. Vw's workforce so what we're seeing in the automotive industry right now is a shift in skills in competencies away from mechanical engineering and assembly. Line work to a much more specialized kind of electrical engineer software programmer software designer. Phd chemists People who are experts in material sciences in order to buy the raw material said the batteries need in order to develop those materials to perfect the batteries the battery chemistry and some of those new skills. Some of those new areas they obviously have to hire people. The question at the end of the day is will the auto industry in the future employ just as many people as it does today or will there be fewer jobs. I think it's important to understand. The context within which vw is making this change. The emission scandal saw the company cheating. Us emissions regulations and it was. It was a low point for them. Does that episode still way on the company in terms of how its approaching the broader industry. Shift to go greener. I think it's important to put the diesel scandal into context of sort of the broader economic and regulatory changes that are taking place world wide. Because you know. Gm just announced this week that they're going to spend thirty five billion dollars to over the next few years to build electric vehicles and they didn't have a diesel scandal. So there's obviously something else happening here as well but for vw. The diesel scandal was definitely a low point in its international reputation. It costs the company a lot of money and it also became a catalyst inside the company. A whole new layer of of a management was brought in new people with new ideas committed to making the changes necessary to basically make vw the leading electric vehicle maker in the world. And that is there. That is their goal. What they want to do is make the people's electric car. The wsj's william boston. Joining us from berlin william. Thank you for being here.

Vlt s volkswagen according to cnbc quote. The release said volkswagen of america would remain an operating unit of volkswagen group of america and a subsidiary of volkswagen g with headquarters in herndon virginia. And so thankfully. I don't think this means they're actually changing the brand or how they would refer to the brand in america on branding. Cnbc just says that they would have a lighter coloured vw logo for electric vehicles versus darker colored vw logo for gas powered vehicles. Hopefully vw is just having fun with their company name as an entity. Which at the end of the day would be inconsequential. The case i'm fine with it go had vw. Get your attention.

I'm used to screen spending a little bit further down but that would take some getting used to but had the two screens so has the screen behind the steering wheel. Which is the driver info. Had everything on that you need to know the spit nice and big speed. Because i did find myself going over thirty accidentally in the in the speed limit sections and then having to off because it's easy to go fast in a navy so that was nice. That and then the gear selector is attached to the screen on the right. And if you've seen the bmw. I three guests like to this. I would say is heavily inspired by that you turn it once for dr once again or click it further for be mode which should be stronger region and then and then often away and then you put it back towards us. Do neutral number of us region. Let me talk about that. Not super powerful. I like really strong region. And i like modulating my right foot. My wife doesn't again. that's very subjective. Thing people in the vehicle. It'll tell you You know with all suddenly you must have this. You must have that strong region blah blah blah blah blah but equally doing seventy on the motorway. And you let off you want a cruise. You want to freewheel. Because then a lot of region is not the most efficient way to get your destination like a really strong region and then just driving with one pedal but it was not strong enough personally for me but it was easy to drive so i just go in and drive. I guess is my first conclusion. Which i'll come back to the end of the podcast. I just got in and drove. So richard left in the car and so once the keys in the car. It's all there's no button on the vw. Id four so there's no. There is an on off button hidden if you want to turn the car on enough but there isn't get in the car you put it into drive and you put away which is the way. It should be an old levi's because you shouldn't have an on off button. It really need it again. At the end of the drive. I go in. I got to the end of the drive. I stopped i pushed the handbrake button which is kind of on the end of the shift and just left and i walked away in the cartoons itself off so my driving impression of is you could get into this from a combustion car and just drive and i think that's the key with the vw. Id full because they'll be people coming from guam's from gulfs from other vw's that finance is coming to an end. The lease is up right. Where do i go. What do i drive next and auditing anybody if they're gonna spend around forty thousand pounds. This car costs now. a should be thinking about combustion. 'cause it doesn't make any sense. A tool to be getting into. The world of diesels. Particular fills is exhausted. Replacements catalytic converters all of that nonsense because this car does every absolutely everything. I think really really well again not gonna win. The draft drag strip won't win the top speed ones. But a did absolutely everything. I could possibly want to really really well now. Didn't have a chance to play with the app. Or have a really good rummage through the car. I did not running on twenty inch wheels. Which is the first ide- spec. The twenty inch. Wheels looked good. Didn't have a chance to play with any of the driver assistant stuff. I did notice on my short drive. That pulled me back into the center of the road. So that must have been turned. I was drifting a bit to the right sent me. I was like oh okay. Didn't know it was very subtle and gentle and worked really really well like i said the screen was was good. It was bright there. I think they could capacitive or capacitive buttons. The run along the bottom of it the same ones that the steering wheel. Now if you've driven a recent vw. Like latest gulf. The steering wheel is just a brilliant piece of design. It's got clicky buttons. It's the evolution of everything that they've learned about usability. It just works the vw. Four doesn't have those house a shiny surface where the buttons are and there are some ridges so you can kind of feel your way but i know that when i'm driving cars that have clicky buttons on the steering wheel own more buttons. I didn't take my eyes off the road. If i'm so setting cruise control over reducing the know cruise control speed temporarily or you know whatever follow distance. I can do that just by touch. Signed goes for turning things up at like up and down volume wise. I can just do it in what there's nothing wrong with the knob and you know an an a physical button sometimes. Even take your eyes off the road for safe. This had some buttons on the whale. The i think they've got right yet. Because it gives you a little bit of feedback when you push it but a lot of swiping if you want to change the volume you can swipe up and down with your finger and the same goes for the heating but really just give me a volume knob because that isn't broken like that piece of design in the world is in broken. It's like light switches. I see a lot of interpretations now. Small lights and smart light switches. And or but you know what you go into a room a light switch it just works. It's a piece of design that doesn't need to be fixed. There's nothing wrong with it. I don't think i could get on with the steering wheel without a bit. I'd need a test a test for the weekend and have apply. Because i didn't like it but they apart from that i did pop in ecoed. I did papa income foot mode. They are some. There's a mode button on the big screen. That's one of those not soft touch buttons. You i mean. And i couldn't feel any difference so i'd like to tell you. Oh yes echo was very strong region and comfort dull. The accelerator in sport was really reactive. I was on roads that were thirty. Forty and sixty miles an hour. I couldn't really tell a big difference like maybe that's why i'm not reviewing house for a living the whole time. The cough l. very much responsive too. I wanted it to do. Everything just walked usb c connections up front and rear as well so loss of usability stuff in there in terms of families charging tablets for the kids and all those kind of things big enough battery like i say seventy seven kilowatt hour pack. Probably all you need. Let's talk to someone who has driven this car in one journey. Six seven hours from scotland to the south coast and what he thinks of as the owner of the car and richard from simon's s dot co dot. uk chat with him to ask about his impressions of the vw. Eighty-four have a listen. So how long would you say your road trip was coming back.

"Vw seem to let slip some tantalizing confirmations about future models in a press release talking about emissions actually the company just confirmed that the performance focused idea four gt aches and the id five coupet variant both debut in this year. It's part of a goal to introduce twenty as bhai twenty. Twenty-five says chris bruce well less attack those in order than the eighty four. Gt ex that will have a more potent powertrain than the id for capable of doing nor to sixty two. That's not one hundred k's in six seconds however this will come with a low range than the standard models. Two hundred and fifty miles. Of course it will be the bigger battery in the performance model and so that bigger battery is seventy seven usable eighty-two kilowatt hours gross. That's the one coming in the like skoda. That sista to the id full rarely and so it will def performance. It'll be the bigger battery. Big is heavy but also able to deliver more punch and more power and small ranch. Obviously so we'll wait to see the stats. The debut will be in the spring. They say so. That could be march. April may i guess depending on how much of a stickler you off the official definitions a spring summit ultimate excetera. This goes on sale in europe by the end of the year. The availability of the full. Gts a still a mystery in the us. Maybe maybe not but the id full will be sold in the us. What was described as the first global v from vw. And so i would have thought it would. Do you know all wheel drive. Powertrain is very attractive very useful to so many people in the us you live in. Cold climates many of the nordic countries. As well here in europe you have a snow and ice at sometimes the i no use for an all wheel drive car and people say to me l. But you know you because that way you've got more performance and yet when you're at cruising speed it can decouple one of the motors and that front wheel drive over real wheel drives more efficient. Even then i don't need maximum performance a drive drive a lot slower than they used to have. Frankly and also don't need. I don't need the extra expense and white of all wheel drive kavas so many people do towing is well of course the. It four can tow. And let's talk about the five while the id five is also coming and while the id full is far from box if you would like basically a ninety four with the boot line chopped off and to have more of a swoopy sleek id five version. Yup that's confirmed as well. Incidentally by the way i d four now on sale in the uk. And so if you've been going to that page which i do semi regularly because i find the id four fascinating To to look at to think about buying it would sue us now. The family the idea on the vw uk configuration is finally active. Hallelujah and so yeah starts to forty grand that they don't take off the government grant so then they do the calculation in the saipa minus three thousand pounds for the free government money and so yeah just like with thirty seven thousand pounds for the first edition..
