He does great reviews showing quirks and features and practicality of owning and driving cars etc

So much better than lots of young British vloggers who love every model so much to get the next drive or expenses trip and just talk about themselves

Maybe an acquired taste

Back when he had his own V8V, the 25+ mentions each video of a bumper-to-bumper warranty...

He sounds like a US version of Jon Bentley

I agree, while he is an irritating guy, his reviews are much better. It should have been given it better scores at the end though.

Can't comment on this particular video as I refuse to contribute to his view count.

He's a clickbaiter. He makes mountains out of molehills to get people to pay attention to him as if he's got something important to say. I can't stand the guy, especially since I had to spend a god-awful number of hours answering emails from people worried about things they'd heard that wker say in his videos when he owned a V8 Vantage. He did more damage to Aston Martin's brand than most YouTubers.

Bit of a tangent... The guy who bought his Vantage lives an hour and a half away from me here in Florida, and I've met him and been to his house and all that. He used it for his YouTube channel for a while and was far less obnoxious. He later sold the car to another guy and moved on to a Gallardo rebuild. The current owner of the Vantage is up north (Pennsylvania or New Jersey, I think). I know he's using it for his YouTube channel but haven't seen any of the videos, I've been way too buried. I was helping the guy learn about the car via email when he bought it, but haven't kept up with him.

This review by him "surprisingly" actually wasn't that bad.

This guy is generally irritating and he wants to make everything a joke, the only reason I watched this was of the car.

That long term test of his when he bought and older high mileage Vantage with 12 month bumper to bumper warranty backfired on him. He took his car in for the silliest reasons, like a small rock caught in his one of his brakes, but it never did have any major problems that I know of and he drove the hell out of it. He fully intended to trash the brand and it didn't work. If anything he proved how bullet proof the V8 Vantage is.
