The Volga GAZ 24-10 is a Soviet car -- and a poorly built, laughably outdated one.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.

"first aid kit" is in America, this one was called "medicine chest". Problem with these was that they where mostly expired. Various first aid kits in todays western world look very similar, perhaps not in american car though. Doug, you looked very silly laughing at it.

The short strap between the hood and the firewall isn't cloth, it's an electrical grounding strap.

This is the most ignorant video I've seen ever. Totally agree this car is crap but he could at least Google few russian words so he could understand first aid items. He could also try to understand why this car has such a bizzare features or explain to audience so it would be some informative. Now it is just laugh of some moron who has no clue about cars. It shows how little knowledge or willing to understand other part of the world Americans have.

What a disappointment. The review, not the car. An insult really - low on facts and understanding on what Russia was going through at the time. Never disliked a video in my life but this one. As for the car, it sounds like a lot were chauffeur driven - maybe that’s why it’s more roomy in the back. First-aid kit makes sense when things don’t go according to plan in the middle of nowhere. Big trunk - cool. It was dated back then but actually it’s not a bad looking car.

So, you take a car that was first introduced in the 70s, pick one that was manufactured in the late 80s, casually mention that government was not "approving" updates, and then laugh about how in this late 80s car everything is like from 70s. I can't wait to see Model T review from this guy...

This car was not a luxury car. It was a car for big families, engineers, managers. It was very reliable. It would be much fair to compare it to other cars from the 70s. It was really close to the european standards of the 70s. The main "bad" point is that the volume available for passengers is very small compared to the size of the vehicule. Also you when evaluating a machine, you may refer to the context and conditions it was built for. Even now in ex USSR countries, many roads are poor due to climate aggressions. By the 2000's I spent a lot of time in Ukraine, and I saw weird things, such as truck leaving a trail in the macadam during a heavy rain. The road ribbon was also slightly sliding on the right or on the left as the truck rolled. In such countries you will prefer a sturdy and reliable car than a fast and high end vehicule, because of continental climate and road conditions. I guess this is the same in the USA in the center states with hard climate conditions.. It is a pity they were forced to produced it for so long because of economics and politics. But car building is not a hi tech industry, the only problem is to have a high production efficiency. So we can understand that car industry was not a priority in the 80s and 90s.
I could love this car as much as my 1990 suburban,same technology!

The strap on the hood is a ground strap. Probably mostly used to complete the circuit for the light attached to it.

..You are really over the top in its shortcomings, and yes it is a 1988 car, but the features are similar ( with exception of the rear seat belts ) of a later 60's early 70's low end American car... I lived through it, it wasn't THAT hilarious, it was all we had at the time.

Volga hit city bus in Belgrade and roll it over. Try to do that with other cars. (it was somwhere around 1985-1986). Also, last time when I was in one, I remember it was more like driving in a boat. That thing eat bad road. Need to have bad road to test it.

The strap on the back of the front hood is not cloth. It is a copper ground strap to ground the hood thus reducing ignition noise received on the AM radio. Many western cars from the period and earlier we also equipped with ground straps usually nearer the hinges.

Not really sure why you would want to mock the Soviet car. Remember that at the end of world war two the Russians had lost millions of their people and much of Russia had been destroyed by Germany. They were extremely worried about it happening again and scared that the Americans would invade or nuke them. They were broke and spent most the national income on a silly arms race. American on the other hand who had been absolutely broke and had suffered a massive depression in the years upto the war , suddenly became the worlds richest country overnight with the spoils of war. Thats why you were riding around in 50s cars that were bigger than a tank and about as practical.

I think the med kit is actually quite useful and interesting. In comparison to my 2CV built in 1989 the car is also a really luxurious vehicle. I had to add front seat headrests myself - though it already had rear Seatbelts. I would rather prefer Doug to show a little more interest in the world outside his own home country instead of laughing all the time and showing a great amount of ignorance. There are several countries on this earth that even today are not in a position to build a car at all. Just being born in a country that has a different situation should not make you ridicule anything. Very annoying behaviour.

I’m surprised you’ve never seen that anti-dazzle feature on the rear-view mirror before. It’s been in many, many cars I’ve driven including an original Mini, two 2CVs, a Peugeot 504, a Peugeot 806, a Renault Clio, a Renault 5, lots of Mk.1 and 2 BMW 3 series... Maybe it’s a UK requirement to have them or something because they’re crazy common.

Fun fact I learned about this car back in the days ;) In specific era windshield wipers were unavailable in USSR for a very long time, so, if you came across a black Volga with windshield wipers you could be relatively certain that inside that car you had KGB agents ;) This was the official KGB car.

24-10 was restyle of old 24 volga. this car mostly was used by taxi cabs. such cars tend to be outdated. London cab car is good example of ancient car doing a good job. the real volga GAS model of that year was GAS 31 very modern luxury sedan and old GAS 24 was just given an upgrade taken from GAS 31

Dear doug or whoever you are why in the hell do you think it's contemporaneous to try to lampoon (Badly) an old soviet car that the rest of the world has known about for decades!! Could it be that you like the rest of your fellow country men are only just becoming aware of the outside world and are taking your first faltering steps in order to try to understand what goes on beyond the borders of your ignorant over fead nation if so dear boy try not to sound so satirical and overly pleased with yourself it only makes you sound like some over privaledged college boy who is trying to come to terms with his own inadequacies by lampooning things from other cultures!! ps doug Jeremy Clarkson does 10 times better and 20 odd years ago at that😊😊😊

Hi, I have worked in Moscow a few times, in the winter it gets to -25c however, the summers were absoloutly beautiful and well up to 30c. The reason why they did not update the cars is because cars are seen as tools, rather than luxury items. Therefore, keep the costs to an absoloute minimum allowing those that could afford one to be able to go buy one. Production was kept cheap on the understanding that it would be difficult to get a loan for the Russian public - unlike the PCP finance solutions enjoyed in the west. So the car did not have all the fancy stuff we enjoyed in the 80s however their costs were kept down. The west cars now have so much tech, the price of cars is just rediculous. The problem here is that the west started getting massive loans and finance for cars which were not seen as tools - hence the massive financial debts that the west now suffers from - people driving range rovers when they cant even afford a basic honda civic. There are lessons to be learned from our past communist friends. :)

I just didn't get it. Why are you having so much fun out of it? Yes, indeed it was the best and the most expensive car in the USSR as well as GAZ-21 earlier. Just keep in mind that we lived behind the steel curtains for over 70 years, insulated from outside world. You have no clue what this is like. Majority of Soviets got real shock after 1991 when all borders got opened and along with freedom they got narcomania, prostitution, AIDS and other wonders of free western society. Hooray!

I was subscribed to this moron, I liked his videos about cars. Not anymore after his ridiculous reaction to this car feature and aid kit, it feels more of a political view than a car review. Doug, you review cars great, but you can't just start judging the people behind the cars nor the people of the production country. Disgust is what I feel right now. Go to hell.

The black pills are made of carbon, to help soothe your stomach, if you just ate a bad batch of borsjtsj. It was , off course, unthinkable that a worker would be late to arrive at the factory, because the assembly line waits for no one. That is why the clock was at the center of the dash instead of the speedometer. When the state has a plan economy with a 4 year cycle that is made out of stalinium, being on time is mandatory.

For me, growing up in the GDR, I've always viewed Wolgas as the ultimate luxury sedan! .....but to be honest, in the 1980-s, I've never seen such an ancient one! I doubt that this was really produced in 1988 since those Wolgas looked a lot different...and much more spacier (ok, no rear seat belts and climate vents...and considering the cupholders, even FRG-cars didn't have them!^^)

So basically in this video he's just immaturely laughing at the car and Soviet Union. Yes, it's a POS, but it got people from point A to point B when not everyone had access to buy better cars from the outside, or lived in luxury. Hope you enjoyed your laugh at the expense of those who lived through those times.
