I’m having a hard time figuring out the where and why of camera placement.

79 points · 6 months ago

Maybe a dash cam?

There is a glare in bottom left of the shot.

Right, so maybe a dash cam?

Hey man, don't put words in my mouth..... ya probably.

BUT THE GLARE

Could be a dash cam.

Looks like there's a glare in the bottom left though.

Dashcam?

There’s a glare tho

Dash cam of a car parked in the street. Perhaps even of the couple that walks out

Doorbell cam, it's a close.

Now what did we learn?

Don't keep your snow brush in your trunk?

You know, I didn't learn that but you make a very good point

We learned that some engineer at VW lost his job today

Be a good human being

Well, I have the same car in this clip, I now know to clean the rear window before I open the trunk. Thanks Reddit!

Just dont keep your snow brush in the trunk. I take mine in when i know it is going to snow so i dont have to deal with stuff like that.

The thing is, I don't know where my brush is... and I live in Minnesota. Yep, I like to live on the edge

Im in new england myself and never take it out of the car unless it is going to snow or i am using a different car.

Why/how did you not know this? It's the same as opening your door. Would you leave that covered and have the snow go in?

Open the car door slowly and it won’t fall in

How do you like it? I've got one and i honestly love it, but I can see why its not made for many people.

I really like it, I have the R-line model and it's not real fast but it's practical. 28 mpg on the highway, (30+ if I'm not speeding) plenty of room in the trunk, nice ride. 8/10. Also, have you found the little drawers on either side of the hazards button?

Haha yeah it didnt actually take me long. I've got the vr6 4motion. Plenty quick for me but gas mileage isnt great, 18/27 with premium fuel is expensive.

How often do you hear “did I roll down the window?” When a passenger is riding with you for the first time and they go to open their door?

? Why would the passenger ask that?

The windows roll into the car when you shut the door so they need to roll down a little bit to open the door.

Not that often, they might be confused but just don't voice it

What the hell is that black thing crawling away from the car?!

105 points · 6 months ago

get some sleep dude..

It’s a water droplet on the glass.

It’s a flake of snow landing on the glass of the windshield, turning to water and sliding down

that is freaky, probably just a water droplet on the camera refracting the car's dark bodywork.

Ha ha made me go back and look!

Great catch. Ghost of his dead chihuahua?

They must have just moved from Florida.

Design fail

Who opens their trunk before cleaning? Is he from Florida?

Perhaps the snowbrush is in the trunk? (Lousy place for it if so)

Yes we keep in cabin

England, we don't get enough snow over here to know how to deal with it. Just look at how much snow it takes to cripple the airports

That's one way to clear a rear window.

Don't worry, it'll melt.

“Design”

Well.... fuck.

Oh hey! I drive the same shittily designed car!

Looks like a dash cam on another vehicle.

It looks like that happened once already (based on where snow isn't), they knew it would happen twice, and recorded it.

Had this happen many times, I always forget though

Now the snow will just melt away, perfect!

This is why I buy hatch backs - saloons suck! Seriously why would you buy a car that cannot fit anything in? Buy a sports car or a hatchback not some silly hybrid version... rant sorry

2 points · 6 months ago · edited 6 months ago

Why do I get the feeling the design team isnt located anywhere where it gets cold

This how it would be if we vomited backwards! Now that would suck.

Sympathy upvote!

“Oh come on!!!”

...............................................shit

Happy cakeday!

That’s what you get for being a lazy ass

Good example of why i don't need automatic stuff on my car

That made me laugh way more than it should have haha.

walks into road and lays down

This would be the definition of “Old people and technology “!

Trouble is, the cleaning brush was in the trunk.

I keep mine in the back seat. Gotta think ahead

This made me laugh, upvote for you.

The UK doesn't get snow very often (well, outside some high bits of Scotland). The driving standard when we do have snow is truly abysmal.

Yeah because you've never made a silly mistake in your life. It happens dude.

Design flaw. What kind of car is this? I’m not going to buy one.

I've done this.

This would be the definition of “Old people and technology “!

VW - Scheisse auto

Did the same retrieving the groceries. Thankfully less snow but still, in the trunk, in the bags.

Personally, I feel that 30-ish year old him should have addressed this somewhere along the line... Y'know, so as to negate it's occurrence.

*an

I mean I woulda made this exact same mistake. If you forget how the back is designed it's an easy mistake...
