Factual error: In the street scenes of Washington, DC, the cabs are Yellow Cabs. DC does not have a yellow cab system, but rather "gypsy" cabs that come in all colors. There are actually very few yellow-colored taxi cabs. (00:21:30)

Suggested correction: During the movie, only two taxis are seen during the entire time in Washington D.C., so it's entirely possible they could be the same colour. And you in your mistake acknowledge the existence of yellow cabs in D.C.

Plot hole: Since they took down the telephone network, it would have been impossible for Justin Long's character to even be speaking to the emergency response woman for the car, much less send a signal to start the car up.

Suggested correction: Is it possible this is a satellite phone call akin to Onstar?

Continuity mistake: John M is driving to the Eastern electricity station and chatting. The view out of his window shows him driving past the same distant hill at least three times. Also the speed is faster out of the passenger's side than the driver's.

Suggested correction: Not really a mistake seeing the same hill 3 times. Also the speed can alter quite easily. Not a mistake.

Plot hole: After McClane, agent Johnson, and Ferrell leave in the police car, Agent Johnson radios another agent to have DC police clear a path for them. Then on Gabriel's screen it says they have a voice match to Farrell. The problem is Farrell never said a word, so how would they have a voice match to him? Without the voice match they never should have found them.

Suggested correction: The agent says "Ferrell" over the radio which in turn gets picked up as a name match on Gabriel's screen as they were scanning for anyone using that key word. Not Ferrell's actual voice but anyone mentioning his name over the radio.

If it was just looking for anyone saying the word Farrell it would have been a "voice" match. A voice match implies but they got a match to Farrell's voice.
