The 1988 Volga GAZ 24-10 Is a Hilariously Bad Soviet Russian Car

The Volga GAZ 24-10 is a Soviet car -- and a poorly built, laughably outdated one.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

I had the same cup holders in my Cadillac STS globe box and those were the only ones I had. Even though it had almost all options except the sunroof. Besides doug is trying really hard to make it sound like a trash car even though it’s practically not different from an 80s caprice or models on the same platform. This was never a luxury car. It was a fleet car. Pretty much the equivalent to an impala, caprice or crown vic. It was basic but very well styled (certainly better looking than every other sedan you showed from the late 80s) and it’s not less equipped than a mid 90s Lincoln Towncar i was recently checking out. Which is really sad for the Lincoln cuz I expected a luxury interior. What I got was the inside of an FBI car you’d see on cop shows. Really bland and boring. The only respectable American luxury brand is Cadillac. They really used to make great cars until like 20 years ago

Way to turn off your slovic fan base, Douglas. For anyone wanting to see vids of Eastern block vehicles, visit Motobieda channel. And no, I'm not affiliated. Also, just to add, in the EU every new vehicle must come with: first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and warning triangle.

Great. Doug found another Eastern Bloc car to bash for absolutely zero reason other than it being eastern bloc. So what, alot of the stuff is "Very 1970s" which seems to be his only go-to nitpick, it was designed during the 1970s. Look at the caprice. That's very "1970s", but was built into the late eighties. And it's the GAZ Volga, not Volga GAZ. GAZ can mean Gazelle, and it also stands for Gorky Automobile Factory.... I swear he hasn't done any research on this car. 17:50 and there we have it. The reason for the bias and bashing.

And speaking of it's "low" maximum speed of 140 km/h - why do you americans need it to be any higher, if the speed limits in most parts of your country is still stuck at 100-120 km/h max, and you consider exceeding that speed limit (e.g. "speeding") oh-so-unsafe? This is just a perfect car for your outdated speed laws; you'll never get a speeding ticket with it, lol

My uncle had that same Volga and we did a lot of family travels with it. I tell you what, it drinks fuel like crazy, but it was the most reliable car that any member of my family ever owned. Absolutely trouble-free for many years. And it was insanely spacious! The back seat would fit (four) people easily! That's two whole Americans! And the trunk would fit 6 people's luggage, even for a long vacation! Sure, it was noisy inside, but the ride was comfy, the seats were very soft and spongy and there was plenty of space to put your stuff eg. water bottles, coffee cups etc.

I had the chance to ride in one of these cars. It was very basic and was not impressive at all. The majoraty of these cars that I saw in ukraine , only had half the door panels. I was there in 1991. At first I thougt it was an old 60s car, but was told it was only a few years old. It reminded me of the old 60s ford comet. About the first aid kit. In russia at the time every ambulance had a doctor in it capable of doing surgery. They did not always have all the supplies they needed and you would supply your own meds. Thus the doc could grab the first aid kit. Also I rarely saw one that ran on more than three cylinders. Hope thats some useful info.

18:12 "It never really got warm in communist Russia" I can't tell if he's being serious, but based on the obnoxious yet seemingly sincere tone of the video, I'll assume he really is. Despite the political party in power, it really did get warm in the country quite a lot you clown. Do at least a little research. This is a fascinating vehicle despite (Maybe even because of) its flaws, and there is much to say about it beyond idiotic giggles. Shame

The reason the radio antenna went down is because people would steal them. It's also why you took your windshield wipers with you whenever you left your car. If I'm not mistaken it was the law in some Eastern European countries under Soviet control for cars to have emergency kits.

Cars in the USSR were built for rough conditions, ie unpaved roads, weather, etc. Simplicity of design helps driver keep car maintained. USSR didn't have services (hospitals etc) in abundance like in the USA. This car will probably be around for a very long time.

The equivalent to this car would be one of the k cars, like the Dodge Aries. Want to guess how much horsepower that made? Anywhere between 65-100 horsepower. 0-60 in about 15 seconds, carbureted of course. Comparing this car to an ls400 is disingenuous at best. Similarly, cassette decks were relatively uncommon until the 80's anywhere, and rear seatbelts weren't compulsory equipment until roughly this period anywhere. The UK didn't mandate them until 1986. India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and many other developing nations still don't mandate rear seatbelts or package them outside of luxury cars. Similarly, the aries had no door storage and had an even worse interior. Also I don't see the hilarity of including acetaminophen and iodine in an 80's first aid kit. Also, about the build and driving experience, the lack of power steering, the high ride height and soft suspension are all due to necessity. Many of the roads in russia and eastern europe are still underdeveloped to this day. You need a simple, rugged, reliable and easily repairable vehicle for those conditions

These Volgas are amazing, bulletproof, they were used as taxis well into 00's. They could be fixed anywhere (even has a little light under the hood, no other car does) and you could help others in case of an accident (that little first aid kit has everything). What a know-nothing bozo!

Yeah, I kinda agree with other critiques of your review of this car. Western lux it isn’t, it never was expected to be compared that way. It’s construction is likely way below western manufacture standards too. So ok, fine it’s a poor cousin to western cars of the same era. But that first aid kit, comes in mighty handy when the nearest EMT services are over an hour away, if at all. That switched light under the hood, nice to have. The ‘cloth’ strap, looks more like a woven copper or steel grounding strap, perhaps that’s a single wire hot lead to that light? The lack of a tach? If you drive a stick, you know when to shift; it’s not necessary like it seems to be in Fast&Furious. The other gauges, easily read, and understood. They’re not info hogs. That battery gauge is more likely showing you the generator status, is it charging the system or discharging. And those air control knobs, simple fresh/hot mixing controls. There’s not a part on that car that you couldn’t put a wrench on yourself and fix. That’s a dying art with today’s cars. I’d say it compares to a late production year VW Beetle than a Lexus.

In ussr, you had one priority and one priority only ... not to improve anything, but rather to keep yourself, your supervisor, and your work group THE HELL out of trouble with The Party. Period. That’s it; and it’s all that matters. The modern capitalist mind has great difficulty understanding the economic realities of the communist system of the cold-war soviet union ... it was this way most of my life, until Reagan and Thatcher used the “arms race” to cause the Soviets to spend themselves into bankruptcy and oblivion, culminating in the fall of the Berlin wall, and the ultimate dissolution of the USSR. I doubt this is even taught in modern U.S. public schools.
