Laforza review! The Laforza is a very unusual and quirky luxury SUV, and it was a complete failure -- but it's one of my favorite failures, as it's a tremendously interesting vehicle. Today I'm reviewing the Laforza, and I'll show you all the quirks and features of the Laforza, and I'll also show you what makes the Laforza so interesting. I'm also going to drive the Laforza and review the driving experience.

    Although you did mention the designer, Tom Tjaarda... isn't that a Pininfarina badge on the door panels? I know Tom worked for Pininfarina for a while. I noticed he designed so many other classy cars, including the Ford Maverick and the Chrysler LeBaron. How sexy is that?

    The breaking lights are from the Fiat Uno. Pretty common car here in Brazil where Fiat has a huge market.
    The older versions (which looks like a drivable box) has the same breaking lights and the steering wheel is pretty similar.

    Dear Doug, I would love to see you review something completely different in this exact style of your enthusiastic videos, maybe as a nice april fools'. I don't know, like a bicycle or an old forgotten peace of technology, or a person... Damn, if I could hire Doug to do my eulogy and review my life in this style and make me look like a super hero, I would xD

    Bro bro. Do some research before you make videos. 18g Steel was used not to make it LOOK luxurious but because their original intent was to make these for the Italian military. How does 18g steel that you never even see the thickness of make a truck LOOK luxurious? The statements don't even make sense bud. Come on. Do better, Doug. Do better.

    "cold takes up only a third of the dual but hot has the majority"
    Doug, I like your channel and I like the way you review special cars, but sometimes it absolutely amazes me how little you know about cars from the 80s and 90s. Like when you didn't know what an equalizer was in the streo of the old eclipse that you reviewed. Or when you thought the convertible truck had 8 different shades of red in it's interior of the Dakota. But this? Come on bro. 1/3 is cold, 1/3 is hot, and 1/3 is the middle is WARM. YOU CAN SEE the little squares are different sizes. But let's say that's not obvious enough. Don't you see in the new Chevy save ford's that there are only Max AC and normal AC dials but then there's like 6 other settings next to it on climate controlls for defrost and vent, feet, vent feet, vent def, etc. Those also have only 1/3 dedicated to AC and use the same basic ideology behind them.
    You're good at what you do bud, but please stop saying things that you made up. Either state facts or don't talk about those things you don't know anything about. I hear you're both in 88 so I can understand why you don't know much about 80s and 90s cars. So when reviewing older cars stick to facts and stop misleading people. Other than that if you could please get your hands under control from spazing out so much when you're talking, it would be greatly appreciated. 🙏
