Car SOS on More4, I believe its a season behind one of the subscription channels. From the season preview it looks a 70s Toyota Celica will be getting the treatment.

I record Top Gear and so far have only seen episode one. They did a thing on company cars with a hybrid BMW, a hybrid Volvo and a Tesla Model 3. All three said the Tesla was the best!
They also had the new 1000 hp Ferrari hybrid. Obviously, Top Gear is going "Greenish".

They obviously don't worry about reliability. Tesla has some dreadful owner reports.
Let's be careful out there!

They won't see many issues in a 24-hour test. To be fair to Tesla, the issues they have are not strictly "reliability" but, according to JD Power, Tesla's quality issues are primarily with cosmetic items, such as paint imperfections, poorly fitting body panels, and squeaks and rattles rather than core powertrain or infotainment functions.

What I have seen  - on You Tube so caution - is thin paint on model 3 and very thin easily dented panels - one touch is enough to leave a dimple (aluminium for weight).

Factory paint quality appears poor.

Bangers & Cash series 3 has now started on Yesterday channel, it follows a family run classic car auction.

Also, not really a tv show, but this might be of interest, the humour won't be for everyone,

(Can't get it to go in as a hyperlink on my tablet)

this is car throttle channel on youtube, episode, "Non-Car Guy Changes Brakes For The First Time"  on a mk1 jazz, there's another one where he services following instructions via facetime.

 I like the Youtube channel "Car Throttle". They've got some great content.

Youtube is a great resource for car TV. Channels like the excellent Hubnut, Furious Driving, Savage Garage etc

Some Youtube car channels:

Auto Expert John Cadogan - very direct and straight talking Australian motoring expert.
Big Car - videos detailing the history of various cars.
Car Cleaning Guru - car detailing guides.
Petrolicious - high quality videos on classic cars.
Thames TV - videos on various subjects from the archives of the former ITV London region (1968-1992), including period car reviews (keep 'em peeled for Shaw Taylor and some fitting Seventies' attire).

Some other YouTube channels members might like, they are all car related, but not Honda orientated.

Harry's Garage - mainly performance & luxury cars, has unrivalled access to (or in some cases owns) a massive collection of exotic cars. Very genial & civilised gentleman.

High Peak Autos - 2nd hand car dealer that reviews cars in stock, wide variety & straight forward opinions, good or bad.

Bob Flavin - Irish motoring journalist turned youtuber, new car reviews, all in euros & kilometres etc.

Nobby on Cars - another Irish reviewer of new cars

Tyrells Classic Workshop - restorer of high end classic cars, very knowledgeable.

'Salvage Rebuilds' on youtube for anyone interested in simple salvage repairs. Bloke makes his living turning cheap salvage around.

 :D Salvage rebuilds are fantastic. I like their channel a lot.

Bob Flavin. I'd forgotten all about him. Brilliant accent and very enthusiastic.

I will check out some of the other channels you guys recommend.

Got to love Youtube.   :D
