Lada Vesta after warranty: save fail

Guarantee on our West expired more than a year ago, and it began to serve in the drafting mechanic. And this, in theory, means self-selection of consumables and working for free.Cyril Mileshkin “Behind the wheel”

I anticipated a further decline in the value of the kilometer — she of the West, according to Park “Behind the wheel”, on average. It did not happen. Breakdowns for the last time never happened — just came over time cost of planned replacements, they were the spoiled economic calculations.

Made in the late spring on mileage 75 000 km cost pennies on the background of the dealer services. Synthetic oil Lada Ultra (1187 rubles) and three filters (the original oil, air and cabin Pilenga Finwhale) pulled together just to 1969 rubles. Major savings on the background of 7000-9000 rubles for official THEN!

The need for additional work picky inspection did not reveal. Except that the front pads and rotors already come to an end. We do not even have to measure a residual thickness. The output of the edge and the work surface as left no doubt that the third set of brake pads to put on them anymore.

The strangest malfunction Vesta — rear view mirror came unstuck from the base. In the small courtyard I have to fold it almost every day – but that’s no reason to fall off! Day of travel with duct tape, and home glue glue Time.The strangest malfunction Vesta — rear view mirror came unstuck from the base.

Cloth seats, after four years of operation deserves the credit. For machines in this price range looks great, the sky is smaller than my classmates, besides non-staining. I have three dogs, and litter under them sometimes strays, but bright inserts at the edges of the rear seats still look clean. They easily remove dirt with a damp cloth as leather.Cloth seats, after four years of operation deserves the credit.

The range for Vesta parts is huge. I chose the average price: 1148 rubles for Remsa pads and 2560 rubles on the Blue Print. You can find brands and cheaper, and more expensive, and in both directions the price can vary three to four times. Short of 80 000 km, came on as a substitute. Two sets of original front pads served 40 000-45 000 km. Rear brake intervention is still required. And than, say, a bad “drums”?

Back in the spring when pereobuvku drew attention to the terrible condition of winter tires. I pretty much traveled on the tires Michelin X-Ice North first and second generations. Impressions of them are very positive, but because of Vesta without hesitation chose X-Ice North 3. And was very disappointed.

After three seasons of tyres Michelin X-Ice North 3 lost too many spikes. If not to the premium segment include.After three seasons of tyres Michelin X-Ice North 3 lost too many spikes. If not to the premium segment include.

Matador tyres (standard equipment) our Vesta did not go immediately replaced by the GT Radial Champiro FE1. It was interesting to try out the tires a little-known brand, only ready in 2016 to the start of sales in Russia. I’m happy with them: noisy, excellent resist aquaplaning and not make me nervous at high speeds. But most importantly — durable. On the photos the condition of the protector after four seasons. If you ignore the recommendation on the five-year lifespan, you can leave and in the sixth summer.Matador tyres (standard equipment) our Vesta did not go immediately replaced by the GT Radial Champiro FE1.

To handling and noise, I have no complaints. But the tyres were very slippery, even in Moscow! And the rate of loss of spikes was horrified. For three seasons (or approximately 35 000 km) two tires remained less than half of the nail, the second pair — less than a quarter. And they not only flew a whole, but even break off. Therefore, despite the more thick the protector, decided to change tires.

This winter Vesta meets on the tires Gislaved Nord*Frost 200. Remember, “hundredth” model too, I was distinguished as the “third” Michelin active loss spikes. Let’s see how the show itself, its successor. While you can only to complain about the relatively high noise level. Snow Moscow never visited, so pure winter impressions from me yet.

For four summers I did not notice that the air conditioner has lost efficiency. The temperature sensor of the engine (in this car it works exactly) after turning on the air conditioner is not going to the right, so that readings to the sink of the radiator either. And praise the ventilation system: the air conditioner in humid weather for drying air need not glass so do not sweat.For four summers I did not notice that the air conditioner has lost efficiency.

Investing in large consumables added to the cost of the kilometer 22 kopecks for the last 5000 km. total — 4.72 ruble per kilometer. I don’t think I will be able to reduce this figure in the near future. Begins to slowly slip the clutch; you don’t know will survive the suspension‑90 000 km without investment. And yet, despite the lack of guidance in the service book, I tend to change at the next service timing kit. Experience drafting Grants and Datsun shows that with the replacement belt is better not to delay.
