The performance, at every metric, defies its heavy curb weight and is still the gold standard of the Fast SUV industry.

Nice review, but can Farah please find some new scenic roads? Those canyon drives get a bit boring to watch.

I can deal with Matt but that guy Zack is horrible imo. He's boring and lacks excitement. I also agree they need to change up the location at this point.

zack is cool and he has been a part of the channel since close to the beginning. he also owns an e46 m3.

where else in LA area would you want to watch him drive? He's done some 1takes in the OC and other parts of the country and i always thought they were more boring since the roads werent as technical or empty. maybe he should review it sitting on the 405 in traffic?

I don't agree. Just because he owns a M3 doesn't make him interesting to watch. When Matt stepped away from reviewing cars on that channel I lost all interest. I suspect views were suffering which is why Matt is back more?

I've watch a few of his videos and he was flat out wrong on the car specs and just didn't know much about the car he was "reviewing".

shrug fair enough once zack took over the 1takes with viewer cars i stopped watching them too. matt has been doing only press cars since then and those i still watch. zack doesnt really irk me in the 2takes and aside from that weird daddy dynamic in the bronco sport video i think you get a little more out of it with the conversation. but to each their own.

Would you rather have him film videos on Florida's roads which are about as curvy as an airport runway?

You notice he too said the comp package adds strut bracing? No wonder I was so misinformed.

Pretty sure you can find curvy roads beyond that canyon in your sunny communist state.

Matt's a good dude, helped me out with my F31 when I had it in LA. His videos are at the top of the heap, there's just SO MUCH content out there now it's a little tough to be fresh all the time. How many ways can you really review a car that's not silly? What do I know though, I am no cinematographer and can geek out on car detailing videos for hours.
