Peugeot cartoon

The English Blog writes about this cartoon:

This cartoon by Kipper Williams from The Guardian relates to news that French carmaker Peugeot Citroën will cut 8,000 jobs and close a factory in France. Read more.

A worker is showing a visitor around an Peugeot assembly plant. He tells him, “This is where the wheels come off”.

EXPLANATION

If the wheels come off something, things start to fail or go wrong, especially after a period of success.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands today:

Peugeot and Citroen diesel cars consume about 40 percent more fuel than their manufacturers claimed in their brochures. This is evident from tests carried out on behalf of the French carmaker PSA itself.
