      Big up andy

    2. luke harris

      Where’s the off-road build!

    3. Recall

      Never use a ratchet strap to pull yourself out. Never use a ratchet strap that’s tied in a knot one end to pull yourself out. Never put a strap round the towball. Stay safe children

    4. Bare Bones Motorcycles

      I really hope you do a full build on this! I found this because i was looking for a cheap off roader! I think im sold

    5. Dan Lee

      Andy if you happen to read this, you are a legend sir!

    6. Fady Naffa

      I have the same car and if you are using all terrain tyres or mud tyres it can do worst than this pond, and you need a better driver 😂

    7. Chese

      “Driftara”

    8. Alister Baker-Lowe

      I was looking if anyone still made a rugged 4x4 anymore, but the new Hilux hasn't got me convinced. So I thought that you guys need a little EcoSport or Ka+ and try that off-road!!! Ha ha!

    9. Maurice Hayden

      Why did the front wheels not spin when he went in? Did the front driveshaft disconnect or did he not engage it

    10. Maurice Hayden

      I used to do donuts in my dads automatic hilux. Had to turn traction off but when you did, it was fun

    11. Jim Osborn

      Goodbye my rust filled shit box! Goodbye my video idea!

    12. What Ever

      Man. That Andy is a legend.

    13. Drin Pajaziti

      Wasnt this gonna be your daily

    14. Øyvind Hanstad

      Great video😁😂

    15. Martyn 1994

      Why? You drove too fast into the H2O and killed it,maybe a course in off roading is required. The Vitara is a legend here in Austria, it keep going when everything else cries enough. I Love my Vitara. Having said all that I love the "Daddy can you help me" from your friends Dad "priceless"

    16. Pantelis Pantelas

      just the way he pronounced "sh*tbox" like it's an edition of the model or sth had me in tears

    17. Daryl Gunning

      My first car was a 2 door 2004 1.6 Grand Vitara. Loved it! 👌

    18. Metalhead of Norway

      so worn down street tires are good for offroading Are they???

    19. Andy Millen

      Crossover time lads... For when lockdown is unlocked. Get in touch with Graham and Shaun of 4wd 24/7, fly down to aus and get some proper 4wd trails.....

    20. Matt Paroz

      I’m a bit late, but the capabilities of the Vitara where grossly let down by the driver, not saying any names , Alex . You should of had another crack at the puddle, at a proper speed while Andy the legend was there.. 🇦🇺🤙🏼

    21. AN D1

      First gen Vitara are highly undervalued cars: if properly maintained they are little gems. It's now very difficult to find low mileage examples which has been treated well so if you find one, buy it. They are cool looking, it's comfortable, it's fast enough, it has an exceptional seating position with a lot of glass around (something you don't see anymore in modern cars), it's reliable and very capable in off roading. 95 to 98 cars have the two tone bodywork which look stylish and very 90s.

    22. LimeTree

      Andy is a legend

    23. Viktor Morawitz

      Driver those this in Zanzibar (called Escudo in Africa) and it was very solid small offroader. Despite the fact I liked Jimny better in those conditions it still got the job done very well and at least I fit in better (I'm 6'9).

    24. Astrall

      Did anyone let Ethan's Dad know that you don't need him anymore or is he still out there looking for you? >.

    25. Dadood Frumcheers

      We make new sausage today called alexwurst, it makes from tuna and Nutella with no free pork alternatives for real dog food.

    26. Sid Rennie

      🤣 don’t open the door!!! 🤣

    27. a channel

      The feeling when you see a disco coming over the hill knowing you’re about to be saved

    28. Madpegasusmax

      I think it will rust after that ... and I like the Mitsu Pajero (Shogun?) Pinin farina better ... if it is the 1.8 GDi and you put a straight exaust , you will say OMG its a EVO VII ...without turbo

    29. Daboss999

      you made me google "rust noise"

    30. Ellis James

      Andy for the win!!

    31. Hillzy87

      Be more prepared Have a proper snatch strap instead of a ratchet strap as well as some D Shackles Some cheap traction boards Deflate the tyres for them to bag out and get a bigger footprint And above all else.NEVER WHEEL BY YOURSELF!

    32. Matt Tester

      Pretty sure this is a long way from me or I'd try the lake of doom in my bobtail Disco.

    33. Early Evo Pum

      You kill the proton.. We can't be friends anymore

    34. bilinas mini

      Jeeeeesus Andy is a beast, driving like a maniac with his disco over that trail! What a legend! Please try to find him and make a video pitching the Vitara vs the Disco

    35. cj L

      I think you’re supposed to approach large puddles at slow speeds.

    36. robbie korn

      I have a 04 crv I love it as a first car I can fit a lot of stuff inside like a bike pallets and I even got a toe square for a bike rack I also got it to 110 once

    37. Anas Nasir

      Ethans dad drives a really cool car. 👌🏼

      1. bilinas mini

        It's no wonder it got stuck when you drive in like that.

    38. Shauka Hodan

      Ethan’s dad is still there looking for them.

    39. Neil Scrivener

      Does Andy have any vancancies for a new grandchild? If so can I get an appplication form?

    40. cetterus

      Just slap some new tires with some grip on them. Can't expect to pass much mud with that slick.

    41. General Guilmon

      Love it when the Forza Motorsport 7 menu music starts playing

      1. Shauka Hodan

        Lockwood.....hold my beer

    42. Tashfeen Fazal

      Bro i need a completely build of this car fix it up and take care of the rest a nice detail then after that you test the car again here.

    43. RandomDrive

      Love the intro, awesome cinematography!

    47. smaulpaul

      Andy passed the vibe check.

        If you ever get stuck there is always some guy with an old disco who'll be willing to help you out

    50. bilishu aliss

      My cat wanted me to say he really enjoyed the bird-shots. Finally something we can enjoy together ;D

      It's no wonder it got stuck when you drive in like that.

      1. bilishu aliss

        Were you in 4x4 going in the water? What a rust bucket.

    53. dolita windo

      “To get rid of the carbon build up in this engine you need a chisel” 🤣🤣🤣

      1. dolita windo

        Those side boards seem to cause issues but I guess Alex needs the help getting in.

    54. Outlaw84

      It doesn’t look that bad and drives and is 4wd? I’d drive it till the wheels fall off save some $$

    55. The one and only banter king

      And why is this essential So many rules broken

        The filth 😂

    57. vwrocco17

      You also need a series 2 discovery

    58. Brendan O'Donnell

      I had a Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin, it had blue “leather” seats, met its demise after seeing how fast it could take a roundabout and accidentally taking out a lamppost.

    59. christopher williams

      Thats what you get when you try do donuts in a RWD with an open rear diff, just pure disappointment lol

    60. Nathaniel Andruschetschko

      can't wait to see the future of this when you don't need Andy

    61. hoiy vinosa

      “To get rid of the carbon build up in this engine you need a chisel” 🤣🤣🤣

    62. JoBBuS

      Yeah, Vita(ra) for life. No Suzuki's for me, except motorbikes, they are great.

    63. North Of Nowhere

    64. Jack Bailhache

      CarWow need to watch this and see how good off road videos are made. @carthrottle for some reason it didn't look like your front wheels were turning when in the pond?

    69. SLAV willis Almera

      I recommend a snorkel , and agressive mud tyres , a winch wouldn't be a bad thing either , best of luck modding it anyway and try trim away as much rust as possible 👍

      1. SLAV willis Almera

        @doliio volay guaranteed 👌 😅

      2. doliio volay

        This is the reason Andy used to convince the Mrs to buy themself a discovery.. and I bet ya... 2 seconds after they drove off, hes ben sitting in the car shouting. "see! I told you s

    70. Adz Win

      U went in sooooooo hard in the lake lol

    71. I'm a chicken LOL

      The filth 😂

    72. C C

      I've got a 1.6 Vitara auto of the same type. Absolutely love it :DDDDDD

    73. Thivyan Sutharsan

      Imagine Alex, Ethan and Jack taking over the Grand Tour when Hammond, May and Clarkson retire

    74. dcoog anml

      I love how the comments is just full of love for Andy, no one even cares about the vitara now 😂😂

    75. HassanPoyo

      Andy is a legend

    76. Simon Fung

      I bet Andy had no idea he'd get thousands of likes for getting these young blokes unbogged. Well done ol' mate.

    77. Oliver Hudson

      That sounds like the best idea ever

      1. dcoog anml

        Bet they are manual locking hubs. It may say 4wd inside but if the hubs ain't locked you're pissing in the 2wd wind!

    78. Sam Mannings

      Chuck a big old lift on it and some knobbly mud plugging tyres and your good to go!

    80. DarkCreatorn

      Geesh! I actually thought Alex was in his 20's

    81. giorgio tommasini

      I wanna see that vitara boiling that lake to steam next time you come across it!!! pimp time!!!!

    82. RPsketcher

      Great video, Discovery II to the rescue!

    83. Daniel Northcott

      I’m thinking about getting a Range Rover TD6 what do people think? High maintenance cost isn’t really a concern.... unless it’s really bad haha

    84. Mac Kent

      Theres a switch in the dash that puts it into sport mode, my mum had the exact same car,

    85. Q Effect

      This is the reason Andy used to convince the Mrs to buy themself a discovery.. and I bet ya... 2 seconds after they drove off, hes ben sitting in the car shouting. "see! I told you so!"

    86. Babo Tunning

      The vitara would do better if had some mud tires on

    87. Stuart Boreham

      For the record there is no 'off-roading'' here as that lane is a highway = road. Off-tarmac or unpaved, yes, but not off-road. Off-roading is driving on private land, with or without permission and it's important to distinguish the two becasue off-roading without permission is illegal and a major complaint in rural areas. It often leads to lane closures and always generates lots of bad feeling. The two phrases were unhelpfully blurred by The Fast Show 20 years ago, bless them. Sadly 'Let's off-tarmac!' didn't make quite such a good catchphrase as 'Let's off-road!'. Driving un-paved roads is better known as 'Greenlaning', so maybe 'Let's greenlane!' would have done it. Or perhaps not. Stay legal folks. 👍🏾

    88. Dominik

      Are those summer tyres?

    89. RWoody1995

      I guess the upside is you cleaned the offside rear wheel :P

    90. Mikey

      Andy, what a legend

    91. Gareth Bell

      Bet they are manual locking hubs. It may say 4wd inside but if the hubs ain't locked you're pissing in the 2wd wind!

    92. Dan Jones

      Half surprised the Rover didn't breakdown en route to the rescue.

    93. xhovisx1

      i miss my disco :p

    94. Patrick Delaney

      You only had it in 2 wheel drive

    95. Nemesis

      Is it me or did Alex not put the car in 4WD? In the big hole, only the rear wheels are spinning.

    96. Matt Lines

      Where abouts is this green lane? looks to be a goodun

    97. Hellalive 89

      Andy what an absolute animal, need more of him.

      Here in Australia, 4x4 country, Vitaras are Gold! even the old ones. Their worth has gone up as well as the sierra. If you spend a little on a lift and bigger tyres plus a snorkle and you will be getting further than most larger 4x4s ever will have. Most shit drivers will always blame the car 🤣 I've seen people in cheap stock 4x4 go further than poser who've spent thousands on their 4x4 just by picking their lines and knowing which speed to take. If he took it at a steady pace and created a wake so he wouldn't have flooded his engine he would've been fine.

      1. qopoy dnon
