The Volga GAZ 24-10 is a Soviet car -- and a poorly built, laughably outdated one. Today I'm reviewing the GAZ 24-10, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of a Soviet car that lagged far behind what we had in North America. I'm also going to drive the Volga and show you what it's like on the road.

  • My Favourite thing from Russia is thier Kamaz Trucks those things really perform,just look at what they can do in the Dakar Rally

  • In Malaysia we had a few Russian cars ..the most popular model was the Lada Niva 4x4 (suv) a car made in 1970s you can still see some in Kuala Lumpur .. everything was going good until in 1985 this was when Malaysia welcomed its own carmaker Proton Holdings which with thier Saga sedan a car the size of 1980s Toyota Corrola with 1.3L and 1.5L .this brought the end of cars from countries that were not form Japan,Germany,Sweden and Britain ....... but newer Russian cars are very convincing i would say rite at level of Hyundai

  • but u forgot to mention 1 thing it costed you 2 month salary

  • And yet it's still running, less to go wrong less is more

  • Well for a useless car it still can last longer than any Cadillac... ha how that for a joke

  • Check out the citroen2cv of 1988 if you think that's out of date styling

  • "I have an opinion about soviet cars and will use this example to point at a laugh" This could have been a very interesting video but the host ruined it by doing no research on it.

  • А вот теперь представьте, дорогие американцы, что этот кошмар считался самым люксовым и недоступным в СССР. А теперь еще раз представьте на каком говне ездили советские люди, которые не могли позволить себе волгу)))). But now imagine, dear Americans, that this nightmare was considered the most luxurious and inaccessible in the USSR. And now once again imagine what kind of shit most Soviet people, who could not afford the Volga, drive)))). Sorry, my English isn't good

  • This is the most embarrassing review Doug has ever made. No research or common sense.

  • What a complete tossa he is.

  • How many cars has this guy actually driven in his life?

  • First and last time here. Archetypal American verbosity and narrow-mindedness. Embarrassingly unfunny. come to think of it, your diatribe could easily fit most American vehicles, of any decade.

  • Doug usually I like your videos but this one was unusually abrasive and I’m not even Russian or a Wolga fan, I’m going to leave a dislike for this one.

  • 7:28 It was not there "to give you something to aspire to". There were two models a 2.5L and also a 5.53L V8 model. And the 5.53L V8 version was actually able to hit 200 Km/h. People here in Bulgaria drove those communist cars until the mid 2000's

  • Did anyone else expect Robert Dunn to show up?

  • Legend has it, that this antenna controls russian nuclear warheads from LA these days, huh? How do you like that, Elon Musk??

  • 14:05 Iodine for treating cuts. Valerian tincture for heart problems. Black tablets are activated carbon. It is necessary for the treatment of diarrhea, burns, rotting, allergies. It should be taken with an exacerbation of bronchial asthma. Your stupidity is really very funny. Knowledge can save someone's life.

  • Never seen a normal rearview mirror before?

  • I'd rather own this than some overloaded overpowered 1mil hypercar. you can drive this anywhere, fix it with anything. and it's only going to appreciate as fewer and fewer proper cars are left

  • The dash looks like a ford pickup in the 80s.

  • AURUS 2020. lvcd.info/watch/m8qSqJWDeLeoq6c/video.html

  • At least Jay Leno was funny with Volga,this de muro or whatever he is,is just anoying 🤮

  • This was so unprofessional.

  • False laughs don’t work........

  • Dum ass.Say what you want I still like it.

  • Looks like the 1960s, not 70s. Look at the Vauxhall Cresta 1967.

  • Its plus great, and double plus great!

  • Can anyone pinpoint the tail lights? They're definitely borrowed from another car, but i can't put my finger on what car?

  • I waited to watch this because I knew it would be 22 minutes of making fun of a car that was to me, as a child in Minsk, the height of luxury and something everyone aspired to. I get it, it's a crappy car for the 80s, there's no denying it. The USSR was falling apart by then and things became frozen in time. But in many ways, from the car itself to the valerian tincture for nerves in the first aid kit, it's an amazing peek into that place and time. I enjoyed the review, honestly, but Doug, I think you sometimes take it too hard on cars that are designed in poorer times or for poorer people.

  • This was the way Holden built their cars in Australia from 1948 to 1980, not fancy, but rugged reliable transport....... gadgets aint shit!!

  • Wow, a lot of butthurt soviet fanboys (совкодрочеры) here - as someone born in the USSR in the late 70s I actually found this review on point and hilarious. And I say this as someone who loves old soviet cars for nostalgic reasons.

  • I think you are trying to hard to make eveything look bad but you yourself are the laughing stock here buddy.

  • Pls review the 2004 svt terminator cobra

  • Is that a lamp built into the hood?

    • that means the strap on the hood is for ground....

  • Нихуясе наезды, мечта любой семьи Советского Софза! В 91вом я в Праге в школе при посольстве права делал на Волжанке с заикающимся учителем автодела Генадием Васильевичем. Бедный Геня накатался с нами по ночной Праге, поседел весь :D

  • I'm getting some late 70's Volvo and Mercedes vibes from that interior.

  • How many times did he say ''made in 1988'' and ''hilarious'' ?...ridiculous review, nothing in the context of where the car was made...

  • I'd love to watch that video but I can't do it for the commentator's drama queen shivering voice. Is he having a stroke?

  • tbh an older design still being used in the 80s wasn't that strange and even many cars in the west did it like the Volvo 140/240 which kept the same design with various facelifts and upgrades from around 1966 to 1993 , the 1974-1994 Vw Golf mk i/cabrio and the American Cadillac fleetwood/brougham which kept the design from 1977 to 1992

  • the volga was the equivalent to a mercedes S class, Everyone wanted one

  • HL2 car

  • 14:03 carbon pills. Diarrhea could be a really harsh emergency! That's an excellent First Aid kit!

  • Yeah the front end looked pretty good. Fantastic review Doug. I am still laughing

  • I guess I'm completely off base but I think it's a really nice-looking car

  • This guy has the audacity to actually mock someone else or something else? SMH. I guess ignorance is bliss.

  • back in the soviet union, you had to pick a wait-ticket from the goverment to get e free car for your work to the comunist cause, the wait was 30 to 50 years... 10 years if you were a "political friend" to the cause... god bless the capitalism

  • Ой, Даг. Зря ты так про Волгу. Тут уже вон бомбящие недоумки собрались тебя какашками закидать. Русские очень не любят, когда их критикуют. И особенно когда критикуют их машины.

  • Comrade, if you have ash tray and gas pedal, you have car.

  • It's a great looking car that had way more personality than the mediocre example mentioned in the beginning of the video. Pretty annoying host too.

  • It has cool basic something to it. Kind of like a Soviet version of a 70s Dodge Dart. I'm sure it drives at least as well as a Plymouth Reliant from the 80s, and I bet it's a more solidly built car.

  • I wouldn't touch that gear lever it looks a bit suspicious, does it smell funny, a bit slippery?

  • Damn it does look out dated for 1988

  • back in the Soviet era and even today in places like Ukraine, Russia and Belarus it is still required by law to carry a road side emergency kit with a car jack, jumper cables, a small tool box with basic tools, first aid kit & something to put fire out with. The car maybe cheap looking but after more than 20 trips to Ukraine over the years I started to understand why soviet era automobiles were built the way they were. Owning a car in the Soviet union was a privilege that vary few people could afford and for the most part if you wanted one you ordered it 10 years in advance with half the money down the day you ordered it sight unseen followed by paying it off the day you drove it out of the factory lot getting a drivers license was also vary hard to get and you needed a reason to have one on most occasions. The cars are simple because again vary few people could afford one and if you needed an Auto Mechanic well best of luck if you lived out side the city because you needed to know how to fix your own car. Even In Ukraine by law you must take a basic class on how to change a tire, and do basic repairs like changing head / tail lights, wiper blades replace the battery and jump start a car among other things in order to get a passing grade on a drivers license.

  • There were diesel-versions (Indenor/Peugeot-engine) in Europe, measured 0 - 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 37 seconds.

  • He laughs at his own jokes and at his own opinions! Redicoulus! (And I am not a communist!)

  • The king of jump-cuts!!

  • A very annoying presenter!

  • Aren’t Russian cars super easy to repair and exchange parts with other Russian models??

  • Speed is only for tanks

  • A true car lover should respect and appreciate every car. I find it very arrogant to make fun with the effort of hundreds of people to produce something. What is wrong with the '70 design? Why manufactures should change their designs that works fine and perfect (Mercedes w124 for example)? All this lead to a great cost for the consumer. My 1989 Fiat Tipo ( European car of the year) didn't have a right mirror. A Mercedes w123 didn't have a tachometer and nobody ever complained about that. Air conditioning in europe was not a standard even in the 2000. Why do you need door pockets on a state owned car that you don't drive more than 30km daily? I can right a book about the biased and nonsense things this guy says about a product that was not made for Him and for the needs of a millennials American. And again a guy that loves mechanics appreciate every screw and every bolt.

  • What a deeply unpleasant person

  • hillarious voice ... like an old lady ... laughing about selfmade jokes

  • "Д. б." (с) С. Лавров.

  • в советской России к машинам никогда не прилагались аптечки! Прилагался только домкрат и минимальный набор инструментов.. эта аптечка там, потому, что, по законам советской России да и по нынешним законам, для того что бы передвигаться на автомобиле он должен быть оборудован аптечкой. Любой школьник в России знает зачем эти жидкости в аптечке и как их применять! Что в этом такого смешного? Черные таблетки это активированный уголь, он применяется при отравлении... что тут смешного?

  • I am from Russia, and I do not understand why he did not like the GAZ-24, my opinion is that the author exaggerated the shortcomings of the GAZ-24 and did not talk about the advantages of this car

  • in Soviet Russia, first-aid kits were never attached to cars! Only a jack and a minimum set of tools were attached .. this first-aid kit is there, because, according to the laws of Soviet Russia, and even according to the current laws, in order to move in a car, it must be equipped with a first-aid kit. Any schoolchild in Russia knows why these liquids are in the first aid kit and how to use them! What's so funny about that? Black tablets are activated charcoal, it is used for poisoning ... what's so funny?

  • communists always make shitttty products....From East Germany to USSR to China.

  • you would not believe, but there is still niva produced in the same design of 80's. russians create perfect cars from the begining, and it really hearts their feelings when you laugh about the perfect car of the great soviet union.

  • Watched about 15 minutes of this drivel .. You're not very bright person Doug as far as I can tell.. Didn't know it was much fun laughing at the old tech cars or someone else's misfortune.. BTW my 2016 Ford doesn't have backseats vents for the AC .. I don't find it funny either..

  • Long Live Mother Russia 🇷🇺 💙

  • Не понял...

  • All the stuff he shamed culd be explaind

  • 15:40 It's not even close to Cadillac's logo

  • Russian Muscle Car

  • I wonder how many people actually know the reason the owner of this car took the public transport instead of driving it.

  • Honestly i actually like how it looks..

  • Well, that first aid kit is to cure fake laugh.

  • so bad i want one

  • Hey Doug, the pills are most likely carbon pills for stopping diarrhea. Imagine the distances that people drive in Russia, long road trips like in the US but the roads and services are "shit" LOL I come from Poland and I do remember having these when I was a little kid.

  • THIS car is beautiful..

  • В 88-м БМВ уже делал Е34 М5, а в СССР это ведро считалось люксовым авто. Точно как в том анекдоте, место проклятое, а не руки из жопы.

  • This video has many funny points. One of them is that it points out how desperate and outdated the communist economy was, of course. But on other side it shows why the communist propaganda (and now nationalist Russian) was able to portrait Americans as self-obsessed, ignorant, arrogant and culture lacking. (While we know it was much worse in the communist states.)

  • I pity all these people in the comments defending this car. Such a cruel fate for both passengers and drivers this ride is.Wish they could enjoy riding in better cars i.e. w123, civic, corolla

  • In Soviet Russia...if you have an accident, you open the first aid kit, drug yourself up...and get arrested for DUI! :D

  • No surprises there, comparing Communist/soviet standards with the western world. No need for the constant laughing and ridicule. Western car design is lead by advertising and competition with other makers. This did not exist in communist USSR. It was simply made to perform a function. It actually looks very Italian/FIAT inspired, of the 70's. I would have liked to have seen more about actual technology, of the engine and electrics. Did they come up with their own unique solutions at all, or did they completely 'borrow' from existing western stuff?

  • Funny detail is that the "standard" he mentions for the US cars in the 80's are pretty common in the Europe cars in the 70's.

  • Too much nose candy before filming ?

  • Looks cool.

  • Are they morris marina door handles?

  • Mr. Doug i like your content , but try not smirking or mockering russia in 1988 .. ; just explain it in politely manner . At that time soviet union peoples have friendship and brotherhood above anything else .. . Not like now .. everyone just thinking about themselves like in US and everywhere .

  • The US cars are just garbage -- poorly built, laughably outdated ones. Buy a Japanese, German car for quality.

  • In eastern Europe it was common the laws actually mandate pretty extensive content of the first aid kit to be in the car...

  • Doug is CIA.

  • Charcoal pills my friend, for your tummy... Not to get poisoned by naughty imperialists!

  • This is a creepy looking car. Looks like something from a communist country, crap!

  • Doug is being a total JERK on this video. It's easy to be a total Jackass when you live in a free country and have all the freedoms and luxuries that we were all blessed with as Americans in 1988. Russian citizens did NOT have at all what we take for granted. This was a nice, dependable car by sensible people's standards. The Volga beat walking in the USSR just as the crappiest piece of American made junk, beats walking here in the USA. Doug gets a big fat ZERO for this video, what a JERK !!

  • You can not compare apples with bananas, the U.S.S.R. was not like america and what's for today's cars, I rather have that 1988 Volga that have more stile instead of those new foolish full of crappy technology cars that oftenly brakes down and cost a lot to get fixed!

  • Doug is the Volga of auto reviewers.

  • Is Doug wrong on this being an outdated car? I don’t believe he’s wrong at all, it literally looks like a car from the mid 60’s. Did Doug really criticize the car for it’s aesthetic qualities alone? No, he ragged on the car for the setting and time that the car existed in because yes, it frankly was quite outdated for being nearly a 90’s car. Was he being a douchebag about it? Yes a bit, he could be more respectful of the machine and the people who made it who were just trying to feed their families in such a despot nation as the USSR was in the 1980’s, being practically isolated from the rest of the world. He should look at the bright sides of it and not just mock it because it came from a communist nation and from a communist era. Do I personally defend communism? No absolutely not, but do I respect the car at least in the little that it is? Yes, it was an attempt. But honestly I don’t expect professionalism from Doug demuro regardless so I don’t know how people are surprised. Go watch savagegeese for that, they’re phenomenal and hilarious. And honestly, it’s quite hilarious and very communist of this car that they decided it’d be cheaper to just include a medical kit for when the passengers are injured in a crash instead of adding seatbelts to prevent injury in the first place lmao. Very economic of them.

  • It is as funny as watching a corpse being kicked. But yes, I get it, the creator wants to prove that he is a good American patriot.
