Release your pros for almost three years and the quality of to pull never can.The unnamed Author of the blog

Reviews UAZ a Pro when I look, [we swear] a little. Such praises writing, much laughter takes. And comfort them at the highest level, and the machine looks cool, and carries two tons and eats up to 15 litres, and there is some sort of Gazelle Profico not hold a candle gaditsya. But I’m not sure what these commentators generally on this UAZ went. Or are they some other unknown models of automobiles across. No offense gentlemen, but here where you see comfort? I understand the two-lane blacktop, but there is little other money, there is another area of the body. Only problems from this, no less. Because of the material used are the same – fuflyzhnaya…. Disgusting plastic, ferrous metal on the frame and all the supporting structure, more and horribly welded. Looks like the car may be interesting, that’s just such a truck is not what you need for urban transportation. And then there’s this option that before the probe can’t reach umywalka not fill, nothing under the hood is not done, not ugastoves from head to toe. No wonder that more and more manufacturers are trying to completely minimize conventional versions of the truck. About capacity is also a very strange statement. If the right to distribute the body weight, go very carefully and on a perfectly smooth road, the car can from point A to B limp. But as soon as one of the conditions is violated, the problem starts with the management, just the wildest. A lot of reviews about UAZ pros, in addition, when the frame just does not stand up. Bursts. That’s the truck. The flow of 15 do not believe, no polutoratonny as not ate and will not eat. A minimum of 16-18 liters and that’s fine, some people just raising the car a little exaggerated. As for the Gazelle, then to each his own. But to deny the fact that people take them with great pleasure, although at a higher price, just awkward. With them also have problems, are not small, but the Gazelle has time to go and earn, before they start. Over the years Gas has tightened the quality, UAZ with each new car only sags.

Toyota reliability is a myth or truth? And how long before the most desirable SUV on the secondary market? It all depends on the service, the expert explains.AFFILIATE MATERIAL

The body and electrics — almost without question

SUV Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in the body J120/J125 was removed from production in 2009. But it is built on the extremely tenacious the Toyota 4Runner/Hilux Surf. And still popular and marketable on the secondary.

And during the peak of his fame in high demand, and thieves: the criminal instances on the market up until now. So the first thing you need to check the VIN number on the frame behind the front right wheel. The matter is complicated by the fact that the frame is older “Predkov” is often unsightly due to surface corrosion. Especially a considerable number of machines, once imported already used from the Middle East (such are chrome, not painted in body color mirrors). Body from them, too, remains worse in the first place — the sills and arches under the plastic covers, the tailgate. Although dealer cars paint is not particularly durable. Directionsbus over 2007, with the spare wheel on the fifth door in addition to wear out its loop. And all from old age crack sealer under the roof rails. The water penetrates into the cabin is not worse than clogged drains hatch (koi should be cleaned regularly).

Interior parts are sturdy and thoroughly customized, so even cars with large mileage is not irritate the creaks and knocks. We have no complaints about the durability of materials.Interior parts are sturdy and thoroughly customized, so even cars with large mileage is not irritate the creaks and knocks. We have no complaints about the durability of materials.

Bottom from age and corrosion the most, up to the loss of integrity, suffer tube rear circuit of the air conditioner. And many of them just plugged: the replacement assumes the separation of the body from the frame. By the way, flattened to the ground on the cushion frame of the body — the sign of the real mileage of more than 300-350 thousand kilometers. It is important to know, because the testimony of Toyota’s odometers adjusted easily. Gradually corrode and the aluminum evaporator (sign — white flakes from vents). For replacement instead of the original 20 thousand roubles it is better to take copper analogue: will last longer, and cost half the price. Silumin bracket in the ignition may simply fall apart from old age — new cylinder will have to buy along with the keys for about 10 thousand rubles. And the front panel have copies of the first release able and small cracks surprise (however, this misfortune prone to a “Japanese” of the time). Is this 50 to 70 thousand rubles, so often the panel just pulls.

Paint from the Prado 120 is not particularly durable, factory corrosion protection is weak. Rust most often infects the sills, wheel arches, tailgate. More of her on the floor panels, frame parts, transmission and suspension.Paint from the Prado 120 is not particularly durable, factory corrosion protection is weak. Rust most often infects the sills, wheel arches, tailgate. More of her on the floor panels, frame parts, transmission and suspension.

When the creaking mechanism of the wiper delay is better not to clean and lubricate the bushings are worn you will have to pay for the trapezium 6 thousand rubles.

With the electrics as such problems are generally low, and everything is easy to fix. Not counting the wear and tear of the generator (many have already been refurbished after 150-200 thousand kilometers), from a generous bathing sometimes suffers rear view camera (20 thousand rubles), and a control unit Windows, not eternal servo damper air conditioning system. But if a motor peaks the stove, you don’t have to pay 12 thousand rubles for a new can just lubricate. By today’s standards — a mere trifle.

Engines — really long lasting

Four-cylinder gasoline engine 2.7 series 3RZ-FE (152 HP) gives heavy SUVs first years of release dynamics of an angry snail, but reliability is good. And with a calm driving style its a cast iron block to withstand more than 400-450 thousand kilometers. Using 200-250 thousand kilometers need to manually adjust valves and new pump. And after 250-300 thousand kilometers possible wear of the nozzle and stretching the timing chain.

Four-cylinder gasoline engine 2.7 series 2TR-FE (163 HP) appeared in 2004 and only slightly more powerful — it is made on the basis of constructive previous block and new cylinder head with a system of variable valve timing VVTi intake plastic intake manifold and a throttle valve with electric drive. The need for adjustment of the valves has disappeared — appeared lifters. The need later, but also good, about 400 thousand kilometers. The resource of the nodes sample around the same that the 3RZ-FE. And poorly made at first, flowing through the 80-100 thousand kilometers of plastic pipe in the cooling system and forever wet seal, crankshaft, upgraded to 2008, (tubing made of metal and eternal).

V6 series 1GR-FE (243 HP) is found on the vast majority of SUVs Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. The cylinder is aluminum with liners and resource around like engine 2.7 3RZ-FE, more than 400 thousand kilometers. The circuit timing as durable, and the valve clearances also need occasionally to correct manually. And the throttle clean of sediments every 50-70 thousand miles.

The main thing — do not overheat. Thermal shock the engine more afraid than younger motors, and they result not only in the breakout strip, but a warped head block (but typically it is possible to recover the alignment and the polishing plane). Especially in the RVS first two model years (later design modified). And essential consumable liquids, the motor applies better. From poor lubrication scuffing in the cylinders will appear faster and the oxygen sensors before, suffers from “burning” fuel.

Four-cylinder turbodiesel 3.0 series 1KD-FTV (163-173 HP) with a system of variable valve timing VVTi on the intake — not the best choice. Primarily because of the supercharger CT16V. The turbine part is decent and does not give reason for concern early 200-250 thousand kilometers. But the system geometry changes can already take 100-150 thousand in the servo mechanism corny worn out plastic gear and the entire Assembly is Assembly is expensive. At the same mileage can go in the flow and the nozzle, while the injection pump tolerate up to 200-250 thousand miles.

In the timing — belt with a replacement interval of every 120-150 thousand miles, the valve clearances also are set manually, and the EGR valve, the EGR has to be cleaned of deposits every 50-60 thousand miles.

When restyling 2007 only became worse. Motor 1KD-FTV modified to meet the requirements of Euro‑4, including change of pistons and combustion chamber. And after 150-200 thousand in the pistons began to show cracks, followed by a thud, the unstable operation with loss of full power and smoky exhaust. To finalize the engine before leaving the scene 120th Prado did not have time.

Occasionally there brought from abroad, off-road four-cylinder atmospheric diesel 5L-E (95 HP) frankly sluggish, and structurally, the old turbo diesel four 1KZ-TE (130 HP) is known for heat cracks in the cylinder head, which often occur after failure of the thermostat, pump or viscous coupling.

Transmission — no surprises

Four-speed automatic transmission Aisin Warner А340F/343F old simple design and slow, but extremely reliable. With regular replacement every 40 thousand kilometers of oil along with the filter to overcome more than 500 thousand kilometers a special feat for it is not.

A five-speed automatic transmission Aisin Warner А750F on my time was the latest and in 2004 went to all the motors, except the basic series 2.7 2TR-FE (remaining with a four А343F). Pariscope has become known to wear locks the torque Converter after off-road exploits. The oil also needs to be changed regularly, although less frequently: once every 80-100 thousand kilometers (used oil WS series, not Type 4, as in four-speed automatic). However, with this box you can count on a outstanding now 400-450 thousand kilometers. After overcoming the half of that mileage gradually tire of the clutch locks the torque Converter. Followed by solenoids. And with a fair amount of oil debris clogging the valve of the hydraulic unit and suffers the accumulator piston. Bulkhead tired of the box will cost about 100 thousand rubles.

Manual transmission in Prado is extremely rare, but there are. Exemplary resilient without exception, on the original dealer versions R150F five-speed unit and replaced it in 2004 with a six-speed R161F. And a five-speed box W56 and G52 have imported from the Middle and Far East cars. Even the grip when a considerable mass of the car is able to hold a commendable 140-150 thousand kilometers.

The simplified drivetrain Part-Time with a forced connection of the front axle can also be found only in middle Eastern copies. The system with permanent all-wheel drive Full-Time transfer case chain for geared parts will last at least for the transmission. It might seapowet from old age at the junction with the drive module lock the center differential: and basic rubber ring rasgado will have to remove and disassemble for parts. But the actuator can go haywire through 200-250 thousand kilometers and broke the short-lived plastic material gear.

On the joints of the driveshaft are lavatrici — and in the twenty-first century Toyota Land Cruiser Prado old fashioned requires a regular injection. And better not to forget about it whenever the FACT. Cost the procedure is not more expensive than a thousand rubles, and big play threat from the vibrations may affect the rear gear. And if the crosses are changed separately, when worn splines will need an expensive gimbal Assembly (rear pull on 35 thousand rubles, but a sign of future costs — transmission shocks in the beginning of the movement and when stopping). Served the same driveshafts go indefinitely. How often CV joints: if after 200 thousand miles time to replace their cracked old boots.

Suspension-marathoner

The simpler the suspension on the Prado, the less hassle it gives. But in any case may not require attention for years. Even the usually who are supposed to be consumables bushings and strut stabilizers, if not regularly to conquer the road, able to hold up to 120-140 thousand kilometers. And ball joints not too it’s a shame to change the together with double wishbones front suspension. In the original, each worth 15 thousand rubles (although the price of analogues in several times lower, but they go less). But, as silentblock pull the rear axle, upgrading them usually requires only using 200-220 thousand kilometers.

The shock absorbers are about 200 thousand kilometers, and even in the original are inexpensive, 5-8 thousand rubles (and counterparts even half the price). And it is so long that at the back due to dampness under the protective screen at times before have time to rust through the housing.

Optional adjustable shock absorbers system, TEMS (Toyota Electronic Modulated Suspension) is worse only by the fact that twice as expensive (and unique to find — only the original on 18 thousand roubles front and already on 24 thousand roubles rear). That’s just the front usually before themselves dampers through 150-170 thousand kilometers, refuses external drive module of stock. And sometimes earlier if crack its shell.

The rear drive module is not external, but integrated. And has its weak spot — right inside the insulation rots and breaks at the bend harness. The damper remains in the strongest of possible settings.

The steering gear perfectly fit the definition of “durable”. But if you rake in the end and talks about his, just to carry to the cashier 60-80 thousand rubles not necessary: the mechanism is easy to sort out. A relatively weak spot (like most Toyotas) is the lower gimbal joint steering shaft — when the dirt wears out after 130-150 thousand miles, and new cardanic is 7 thousand rubles. Knocking in the lower splined connection is purely senile: in ten years there do not remain grease, and if the moving parts have not had time to critically deteriorate from drying out, just need to lay a new.

Paired with the TEMS system works the rear air suspension. Weak spot — the electrician the control valve, so badly located on the receiver in the rear overhang, with age inevitably doomed to suffer from the slush. Even less reliable back gauge height in the suspension, this is not always enough and 100-120 thousand kilometers. But more is not better valves from moisture protected the electrics of the compressor behind the rear bumper fascia right without it, about the air pump would not remember to 200-220 thousand kilometers.

Themselves rear air springs protected corrugations, and are not space money for 8-9 thousand rubles. And although they are complicated by the friction with the abrasive manages to cover surface corrosion of its own reference glasses, steadfastly refrain from loss of containment up to impressive 220-260 thousand kilometers.

Attention requires a brake system. Without regular replacement of the fluid and grease will corrode and sour the fingers in the calipers and the pistons in the cylinders (a sure sign — rimmed corrosion of the surface of the discs). Over time, this situation is compounded by the cracking of the old rubber dust covers. And if you miss the moment and not time to sort out the calipers, new will cost from 12 to 17 thousand rubles each. When it runs for 150 thousand kilometers often lose their mobility the Parking brake cables (they are inexpensive, only 4 thousand). And in more advanced age, closer to 300 thousand kilometers, loses effectiveness the work of the main brake cylinder.

Summary

Rumors about the durability of Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV is not without Foundation. Health SUV do not deprived. Although the machine is still not cognac and over the years it’s not getting better. Meanwhile the reverse side is a considerable margin of safety — prices for a million rubles, even in the venerable seventeen years of age.

Strange-strange world: model Camaro is worth more than the original

The car holds a special place in pop culture as the most famous ever starred in movies. It is especially dear to the Australians — in this country was filmed the first part of “Mad max”.

Today Ford Falcon 1974 belongs to developer Michael Désert, who recently refused offers to sell the vehicle for $ 2 million. Say, to buy a car like one large Museum of Australia. In addition, a major Australian car magazine is going to persuade the government to buy back the car and return it to the constant local exposure.

Built on the basis coupe Ford Falcon GT, the car was substantially modified for its main role in the movie “Mad Max” and feature many custom features including a huge turbocharger.

When shooting the movie “Mad Max” was completed, the company Kennedy-Miller Productions presented “Interceptor” mechanic Murray Smith — is owed a fee. Smith was removed from the vehicle the supercharger and put the car on the account, to drive on public roads. In 1983, Kennedy-Miller Productions bought the car at the mechanic for the filming of the movie “Mad Max 2: the road Warrior”.

After filming the second movie Ford Falcon was sold in 1985 owner Bob Fursenko. Later the coupe appeared in the National motor Museum in South Australia, and then, in 1992, was sold to the owner of the Museum cars of the stars from the UK. As for Maladiere, he became the owner of a legendary car in 2011 when he bought all the property of the Museum of the stars, and then moved it to Miami, including the “Interceptor”.

Now the car Mad max it’s time once again to change the owner, and its cost, thanks to the huge popularity of the last part of the movie “Mad Max: fury Road”, despite the fact that the Interceptor it is not removed, it may be exorbitant.

“Take me, my Lionel!” — named common and unusual names of taxi drivers

In 2012, the average revenue driver for the day amounted to almost 7 thousand rubles, of which about 4 thousand roubles, the net income of the driver. In 2019, it dropped to 5.7 thousand rubles, and the income of the driver was 1.4 thousand. In this case, if it were not for aggregators, revenue drivers would be almost 6 thousand rubles, and income — 2,7 thousand rubles, according to a study of the taxi market HSE.

Over the last 10 years the share of income of the driver in the revenue structure decreased from 72% to 23%, while the cost of a fee and car rental increased by 3.5 times (from 18% to 63%).

Thanks to aggregators, the demand for taxis over the last eight years has increased more than eight — fold to 324 million trips. The volume of the market during these eight years has increased from 19.7 billion to 157.3 billion rubles. One possible reason for the growing popularity is the decrease in the average check per trip (484 ruble in 2019 against 493 rubles in 2012). If aggregators on the market today did not exist, the average ticket for the trip would have amounted to 620 rubles.

For customers, on the one hand, cheaper that the service became more accessible, and on the other as it fell. Access to the market easier today to become a taxi driver, just need a driver’s license and a certain amount for a rental car.

The state should regulate this market, experts believe. Otherwise, the negative consequences of rapid market growth will only increase — will increase the number of accidents, deaths and disease among taxi drivers due to overwork, non-payment of taxes, etc. it is important not to overdo it — the authors see risks and strengthening government regulation. In this case, the cost of services will increase, there will be monopolization of the market by large aggregators, as well as the slowdown in the growth of traffic.

When preparing the research analysts HSE interviewed 1.5 thousand passengers and 101 of a taxi driver in Moscow.

  • By the way, Vladimir Putin noted the growth in the number of accidents involving taxi drivers and gave instructions to understand.

Malicious debtors fines out of the way

The administrative code should be rewritten to conform to the requirements of the society, said the Ministry of justice, which will require two months. The officials are going to consider a proposal onf — differentiated system of penalties.

The new draft Cao was subjected to a comprehensive criticism during the discussion. They especially unhappy motorists for whom the document stipulates exorbitant fines, not comparable with the real income. For example, the penalty for exceeding the speed limit on the 20-39 km/h should increase from 500 to 3000 rubles — in 6 times, and constitute nearly one-third of the minimum wage. On this occasion, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin told very clearly, criticizing this approach to improving safety on the roads.

“As shown by the reaction to the sharp increase in sanctions and a Chapter devoted to traffic violations, demands of society the project is not consistent. The document will be changed”, — quotes “Kommersant” the statement of the Deputy head of the Ministry Denis Novak.

At this Deputy head was accused of increasing fines, the Ministry of internal Affairs, which insisted on this change, explaining its position by the fact that it will reduce the level of deaths on the roads in traffic accidents.

“But we do understand that the code is not fiscal in nature and its main goal is not collection of fines,” said Novak, adding that the need to improve infrastructure and bring order to signs and markings.

Special attention is paid to the possibility of appealing the fines online, which, by the way, was made by the government. As said Denis Novak, the new Cao will provide the opportunity.

What will the two-month changes changes in the code, we will know in late April — early may.

Nissan Qashqai second generation showed in 2013, but it still sold well. It is not a coincidence.Yuriy Timkin “Behind the wheel”

Nissan Qashqai is not just popular, and is in the top 25 of Russian sales (in 2019 were sold 25 158 copies — two thousand more than in 2018). Not bad for a “veteran”!

The success of the Qashqai has several factors: reasonable price, due to the localization model, and a variety of modifications and serious adaptation to our conditions. Perhaps we could start with this.

What exactly adapted for Russia?

About 15 years ago some automakers, bringing the car to our market, proud of installing the high-capacity battery. Some brands in addition have started to increase the capacity of the reservoir fluids, windshield washing fluid and improve the clearance. In principle, is not bad.

But Nissan went further, Qashqai St. Petersburg Assembly have received a lot more improvements. In particular, a separate button for the headlamp washer to not waste antifreeze. For a better protection of the body from flying from under the wheels of mud and sandblasting extended edging wheel arches. Changed and electrical equipment — is a 150 amp generator used 180 amp.

And the suspension is also modified?

Chassis Russian Kachkaev subjected to major revision. Used subframes (front and rear) from the X-Trail. They are attached to the body via silent blocks, which reduced the vibration level. The basic version of the Qashqai, which is available in the UK equipped with a rear torsion beam. Russian Kashkai in all versions equipped with rear multi-link suspension. In addition, our crossover other axle: the track increased by 20 mm front and 30 mm rear.

Nissan Qashqai produced at the plant near St. Petersburg. Crossover was originally well adapted to our conditions, and last year it upgraded. By the way, then the chassis tuning was involved and expert “Behind the wheel”.Nissan Qashqai produced at the plant near St. Petersburg. Crossover was originally well adapted to our conditions, and last year it upgraded. By the way, then the chassis tuning was involved and expert “Behind the wheel”.

Last year during the modernization of St. Petersburg Kashkai got new shock absorbers, which introduced a spring rebound. This decision significantly increased the smoothness. On the broken asphalt Qashqai wheels without a hint of discomfort. Along with the shaking disappeared and rumble — suspension works as if intelligent. For our customers this is a serious argument.

The approach angle is 20.5 degrees. Frankly, not the most outstanding figure. On the excesses of the topography should be careful.The approach angle is 20.5 degrees. Frankly, not the most outstanding figure. On the excesses of the topography should be careful.

Normal Qashqai is supplied with plastic protection of the engine compartment. If you want metal, you will have to fork out at least 3000 rubles.Normal Qashqai is supplied with plastic protection of the engine compartment. If you want metal, you will have to fork out at least 3000 rubles.

What about manageability?

It is encouraging that improving the smoothness, nissanusa’t sacrificed handling. On the contrary — it became even more interesting. In turns updated Qashqai looks confident helps a thicker front stabilizer bar, through which rolls a little trifle less impressed. I also note the new software of the electric power with which the wheel is freed from the former uncertainty and found sane feedback. Active drive Qashqai will be fun.

The interior is good or outdated?

Inside a few important options: steering wheel with thick rim, making it comfortable to hold, even with the heating function. Russia is an important option. The windscreen is also heated and “heated” the entire area, not only quiet places of janitors. All four power window with automatic mode — has pressed, and ready. Interior design is still outdated is not perceived. Also there is no question to the quality of the finish (deficit soft plastic is not observed) and the level of ergonomics — comfortable fit, the controls are good. Not only like a close and curve area of the left leg — you have to slightly twist the foot.

The interior still looks relevant, and the quality of the finishing cool — few rivals offer more soft plastic.The interior still looks relevant, and the quality of the finishing cool — few rivals offer more soft plastic.

It’s hard to believe, but the button to activate heated rear couch “spelled out” on the Central tunnel between the front seats. Second-row passengers she did not reach out…it’s hard To believe, but the button to activate heated rear couch “spelled out” on the Central tunnel between the front seats.

There on the second row, dull?

Qashqai have small dimensions, but in the cabin of the distress is not felt. Tall people feel at ease not only first, but in the second row. In comparison with competitors (Mitsubishi ASX, Suzuki SX4, Renault Arkana) “gallery” Nissan more hospitable. Praise is not only space, but also options. So, at the disposal of the rear passengers have a pair of USB ports for charging gadgets, personal deflectors ventilation and heated seats. That’s just the power button is located on the last tunnel between the front seats — passengers can’t reach it. Strange decision.

What you can cram into the trunk?

In this segment often is that for large second row the manufacturer donates the volume of the trunk. The Nissan this step did not go — thanks to the competent layout for the fifth door hides a fairly spacious compartment. According to factory data, its volume is 430 litres. We, however, measured only 324 L. For comparison, Renault Arkana according to our measurements — 304 l (claimed 409 l). Important point: under the boot floor in the Qashqai a full spare tire. For Russia, this is an advantage.

The boot holds 430 litres of Luggage. But it is in tokatkoy. In the presence of a full-sized spare capacity will be reduced.The boot holds 430 litres of Luggage. But it is in tokatkoy. In the presence of a full-sized spare capacity will be reduced.

Nice options there?

By equipping the Qashqai is not a simpleton. In addition to heating the rear seat, he was pleasantly surprised by the advanced equipment: panoramic roof, led headlights with auto switching from upper to lower, avtoparkova and system of the circular review, blind spot monitoring, control, lane driving and automatic braking before an obstacle. Of course, almost all of the above oils.

In addition, alternatively, the original multimedia with a 7-inch screen, it is possible to combine with Yandex.Auto, which allows you to use the services Yandex.Navigator, Yandex.Weather, Yandex.Music, voice assistant Alice. Another thing is that the fee for such happiness is 50 000 rubles — a lot. I buy a Qashqai for yourself to pay would not — because I always carry a smartphone, where there are all of these functions.

Staff multimedia functionality does not meet modern standards, and its screen can not boast of a rich picture. Not satisfied? Pay extra for Yandex.Cars.Staff multimedia functionality does not meet modern standards, and its screen can not boast of a rich picture. Not satisfied? Pay extra for Yandex.Cars.

What is the motor really going?

After the restyling of the motor line deleted diesel Qashqai is now offered only with petrol engines. Basic engine equipped with a turbocharger. With a modest working volume of 1.2 liters with it “removed” for such a worthy volume 115 HP the Alternative he is a 2-liter 144-horsepower aspirated. Both engines are available as 6-speed manual, and CVT. But xDrive can only be obtained with the most powerful engine. In our test like this. And this is the option that I would recommend to purchase. Primarily because of the reliability of the atmospheric engine.

Dispersed so so?

The output of the motor on paper is not impressive: a 2-liter competitors will be more powerful. However a wallflower Qashqai is not perceived — when overclocking it will hardly lag behind rivals. According to our measurements, acceleration to 100 km/h Nissan requires 10.5 seconds. The process itself is unique. If you start at floor Qashqai first leaps forward, then a fraction of a second to be “plugging” with a peck and at last the brisk acceleration.

Very much in the work of the Jatco CVT that simulates shifting and allowing the transition to manual mode to actively use engine brake. Such responsiveness and the sincerity of the reactions to look for more.

What if on the street, dirty?

The palm of the owner of the Qashqai will not last long, because the electric tailgate is not offered even for a fee. Well at least the fuel filler door can be open by pressing the key from the salon. But for the purity of the pants can be covered by the threshold of the door. So even after long trips on the road to come out from behind the wheel is possible without fear of purepacket pants.

Long doors covering the sills, which remain clean in any weather. Russia is a valuable feature.Long doors covering the sills, which remain clean in any weather. Russia is a valuable feature.

On the road the Qashqai is not toothless — confidently rowing all four wheels, and center the clutch does not overheat. Offset.On the road the Qashqai is not toothless — confidently rowing all four wheels, and center the clutch does not overheat. Offset.

And offroad you can?

For accessibility Qashqai goes to middling. The approach angle is 20.5°, departure angle is 29.5°. Under the steel guard, we measured clearance of 175 mm. While in the middle of the rear ground clearance is even higher — 210 and 205 mm, respectively. Thanks to this “geometry” Qashqai not succumb to the off-road middling — even a multi-coupler block is not necessary.

Go to transmission mode can Lock at speeds up to 40 km/h — in this case, the thrust is distributed between the axles in the ratio 50:50, and the machine starts to get more confident on the sticking to the ground and to cross difficult terrain. Diagonal hanging Qashqai, thanks to the competent setup ESP overcomes without problems. That’s only a body thus literally “breathes” — between the tailgate and the rear wing there is a large gap. So the picnic is better to choose flatter.

What’s with the prices?

The starting price of 1 250 000 at present very attractive. It is possible to reduce another thirty thousand at the exchange of the car Nissan trade-in. Still, I wouldn’t have to look at the basic version: steel 16-inch wheels, six airbags, ESP, climate control, audio system with Bluetooth Yes, heating front seats, Windows (front and rear) and side mirrors. Not enough for a modern crossover.

However, the version of LE Top for 1 880 000 — overkill. Leather trim, electric front seats, 19-inch wheels, engine start button and the monitoring system for driver fatigue — it is possible to do.

I would have opted for a 2-liter four-wheel drive versions SE+ 1 720 000 rubles. Not here as the aching emptiness and excesses. Fog lights, 17-inch “casting”, cruise control, heated steering wheel and rear seats, multimediasystem with touch screen navigation, rear view camera, front and rear Parking sensors — here it is, the Golden mean.

Insulation normal?

During last year’s modernization of riscanovca have focused on the improvement of acoustic comfort. Now have the new Qashqai windscreen (it has a sound-absorbing layer), additional insulation on the wheel arches and the engine shield, and now cover the bottom plastic guards. The result is felt in the cabin is really quiet. When the car is running at idle, the engine sound level meter shows 47 dB. At the speed of 50 km/h goes up to 56 dB at 100 km/h — 65 dB. Very, very good performance.

The fly swatter on the hood you need to put?

The thickness of the paintwork measure at four points the body: in the region of the front edge of the hood, on the fender (near the wheel arches), on the threshold (in case of impossibility of calculation in the lower part of the door), and near the lower edge of the trunk lid.The thickness of the paintwork measure at four points the body: in the region of the front edge of the hood, on the fender (near the wheel arches), on the threshold (in case of impossibility of calculation in the lower part of the door), and near the lower edge of the trunk lid.

Here are the results of measurements of the thickness of the factory LCP indicated in the diagram points:

  1. The hood is a 224 µm.
  2. Wing — 115 µm.
  3. The threshold/door — 144 µm.
  4. Trunk lid — 123 microns.

Measurements have shown that on the wings of the thickness of the paintwork modest. But on the bonnet (which takes a bigger share of flying off the road and sandblasting of stones) “coat” to be extremely thick. Welcome. You can do without a fly swatter on the hood.

Family approve?

My daughter is a first-grader from the Qashqai was delighted, or rather, from its multimedia with Yandex. She was continually listening to nursery rhymes online and was pleased with their variety. But unworldly wife remained neutral: “Nice car, but I would wait about the fresh classmates Seltos Kia and Skoda Karoq — what you mean to me all ears buzzed. Suddenly they are better?”

Expert “Behind the wheel” traveled about a thousand kilometers on the asphalt and grading roads of the island-state.Maxim Sachkov “Behind the wheel”

There are places on our planet that cannot be described in one sentence. One of these is Iceland.

Travel on this mysterious country is best by car rental: from 50 euros per passenger up to 100 euros and above for a SUV. You can go by public transport, since he is well developed, but this is not the same freedom of movement. Time to visit less places in eternally short vacation.

We traveled with the company on several Subaru, and it was the right choice as the XV, Forester and Outback is a great compromise between comfort and maneuverability.

To travel around Iceland it is best by car. You can bring your own on the ferry, but easier and cheaper to hire.To travel around Iceland it is best by car. You can bring your own on the ferry, but easier and cheaper to hire.

Started from the Peninsula Reykjanes (duplicate Icelandic names in Latin will not neither here nor further, because they are difficult to read and impossible to remember). It’s shaped like the Apennine, reminiscent of boots, only less elegant, in the style of Northern peoples. Here is the international airport Keflavik and the capital Reykjavik. And right here starts the same Iceland that everyone knows by photos and videos. On both sides of the road stretch endless fields of lava, covered most common vegetation — moss.

Reykjavik, where two-thirds of the entire population of Iceland is the northernmost capital in the world. But it differs little from other European cities. Therefore, it is not necessary to spend a lot of time in his examination — in Iceland, a lot of other, more interesting places.Reykjavik, where two-thirds of the entire population of Iceland is the northernmost capital in the world. But it differs little from other European cities. Therefore, it is not necessary to spend a lot of time in his examination — in Iceland, a lot of other, more interesting places.

A landscape shaped active volcanic activity and tectonic processes in the earth’s crust. Across the Peninsula and further through the rest of Iceland, is the line of the Mid-Atlantic ridge. This crease on the planet was formed billions of years ago, when swishcontent Pangea divided into continents. The main part of this mountain range, separating the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, runs along the bottom of the Atlantic, but here in Iceland, this fault just comes to the surface.

Typical Iceland landscape: fields of frozen lava covered with moss. Most of the roads are paved, however, and on the main ring road No. 1 there are gravel areas and narrow one-lane bridges made of wood and metal.Typical Iceland landscape: fields of frozen lava covered with moss.

Valley of Thingvellir is located on tectonic fault lines between two continents: Eurasia and North America. This rift runs through Iceland.

One of the most unusual waterfalls in Iceland — two-stage Gullfoss, meaning Golden falls. Its name he received because of the mist, dyeing the water a Golden color. At the end of the last century wanted to build a hydroelectric power plant that would lead to the destruction of the waterfall. Construction is not started due to lack of funds. Although there is a more romantic version: the decision overturned because a woman threatened to jump into the water.One of the most unusual waterfalls in Iceland — two-stage Gullfoss, meaning Golden falls.

The most active geyser — Strokkur — is located in the southwestern part of Iceland, in a geothermal area near the canyon of the hvita river. This geyser erupts every five minutes, throwing a column of water up to a height of 30 meters. But sometimes Strokkur can erupt twice or even three times in a row.The most active geyser — Strokkur — is located in the southwestern part of Iceland, in a geothermal area near the canyon of the hvita river.

Volcanoes, geysers, unusual mountainous terrain, only a timid reminder of what is happening under the ground. No wonder the locals joke that live in a hot pan. That’s one of the burners is a geothermal area Seltun. Of the many fumaroles — cracks in the slopes and at the foot of the volcanoes break out the hot gases. Around hear the gurgling of boiling water, the nose hit a sharp smell of hydrogen sulfide. This is the most stinking place on the Reykjanes Peninsula, but also the most beautiful — such an abundance and such combinations of colors of soil and rocks I had not met.

In the southern part of the island is another hot spot, the volcano Hekla, the most active in Iceland. Last erupted in 2000, and for the last thousand years threw ash and lava more than two dozen times. Studies have shown that it was active during the last 6600 years.

But far more misery and destruction brought the volcano Laki. In 1783-1784 he erupted without stopping for eight months. It was the world’s largest lava burst. Rivers of fire flowed more than 130 kilometers, forming a huge lava field. Killed a quarter of Iceland’s population and about 80 percent of the cattle. It is impossible not to recall the Eyjafjallajökull volcano dimevski in the spring of 2010. He did not cause serious damage, however, badly tarnished not only the lives of Icelanders and their neighbours: because of the large quantities released into the air the ashes were canceled many flights.

However, any evil can be turned good. Icelanders have cleverly used the energy hidden under the ground. That’s because the pass is Hellisheidi is the world’s largest geothermal power plant. Steam coming from under the ground, turns the turbines of generators — so the thermal energy of underground sources is converted into electricity. And the remaining heat is supplied through the pipes in the nearby houses for heating.

Black beach Reynisfjara on the South coast of Iceland, often called Vic by the name of the neighbouring village. Hot volcanic lava flowed to the ocean and froze, forming a black porous mass. For many years the waves crushed it, turning it into fine sand. And black formed a five-kilometer coastline. Another local attraction — the fingers of the Troll, basalt rock-columns in the ocean. According to legend, trolls stole the ship and almost dragged him to the shore, when the sun rose; they did not have time to hide and petrified, and one arm remained above water.Black beach Reynisfjara on the South coast of Iceland, often called Vic by the name of the neighbouring village.

According to legend, trolls stole the ship and almost dragged him to the shore, when the sun rose; they did not have time to hide and petrified, and one arm remained above water.

Icelanders cherish nature, and she — no. From locals I heard an apt saying: if bad weather, wait fifteen minutes and it will be even worse. And it’s true: just luxuriated under the warm rays of the sun, and after five minutes the temperature drops more than 10 degrees and you’re in a hurry to hide in the car from the biting wind, and as if sifted through a sieve of rain. Active safety system EyeSight Subaru on our receiving information from the stereo camera several times blinded from the water mist in the air.

Vatnajökull, the largest Icelandic glacier, it takes a tenth of the island. We crept up to him as close as possible, then you can go only on specially prepared equipment.Vatnajökull, the largest Icelandic glacier, it takes a tenth of the island. We crept up to him as close as possible, then you can go only on specially prepared equipment.

It is windy and summer and winter, and the normal wind speed is considered 20 m/s (against this it is difficult to go). In a storm it can be up to 50 m/s, and the hurricane easily blows away the road, even the truck, not to mention the car. Local in bad weather is not only out to sea, but even by car try not to go.

In such a climate to all living creatures find it difficult to adapt, and therefore flora and fauna are scarce and damn hardy. Instead of grass, moss, flowers, wild lupins and daisies, trees — the dwarf birch. Of the animals are found only foxes, foxes and deer. By the way, hunting them is allowed, but the license for shooting is very expensive. A deer will have to pay several thousand euros. Because hunting looks like fun: the hunters killed exactly one deer, and drooling, taking him past the other animals grazing. Touch — will remain without pants.

Fish in local rivers and seas much more than game on land, but the license for fishing is too expensive. Probably because people here like to go fishing celebrities. Including Elton John, who regularly goes to Iceland to leave the spinning.

Fishing is one of the most profitable articles of Iceland. In a year there are about half a million tons of fish. Naturally, a large part is exported. And so unpretentious dried cod. Similar designs are found throughout the island.Fishing is one of the most profitable articles of Iceland. In a year there are about half a million tons of fish. Naturally, a large part is exported. And so unpretentious dried cod. Similar designs are found throughout the island.

Fish restaurant menus rich, and among the familiar names meet exotic — from the diet of the Vikings. For example, haukal, which is a foul smelling meat of the Greenland shark. This fish is missing the bladder, and therefore poisonous to humans urea accumulates in the meat. To remove it, shark buried in the ground for six to eight weeks, where it decomposes. Serve this traditional Icelandic dish usually with vegetables and a glass of brennivin Icelandic potato vodka, which in itself is disgusting, but against hawkers seems divine drink. For dinner I tried it… and understood why the Vikings were so harsh and ruthless.

Why do you need those bars across the road? Is it doing here original drainages for rain water drainage? Not knowing the local peculiarities, difficult to answer correctly. In Iceland the sheep do not graze the animals walk by themselves, but within a private area. That the sheep did not go to the neighbors, it is fenced and cross the border by the way, they do not give just the best of the grid. Within the boundaries of the possessions of the master’s sheep are safe: predators, able to attack them in Iceland are not found, and for stealing livestock could have a prison sentence, because there are none. By the way, prisons are quite comfortable: hearty and tasty food, good medical care, even Internet cameras.

Not to worry, not only for sheep but also for cars. Stealing them is pointless — sooner or later the missing car will be found, and take her off the island undetected fail. Local police faithfully perform their duties. Sometimes, even too honestly. Arriving by ferry our Subaru was detained for three hours for the inspection and the drivers had a conversation, and detailed instructions on how to behave in Iceland. And warned that on the way back will also be checked, so you need to come early. Curiously, the local police didn’t have guns, but all well prepared physically and proficient in unarmed combat.

Horses on the island were brought by the Vikings in the IX-X centuries. To save space they take on the Drakkar only undersized animals. Therefore Icelandic horses stocky and not greater than 144 cm at the withers; they have a big head and long bangs.Horses on the island were brought by the Vikings in the IX-X centuries.

Undone here with almost all cars, from small SUVs to buses and trucks.

The main road in Iceland — the ring road No. 1 with length slightly more than 1,300 km, is laid along the perimeter of the island. But to see all the beauty of this country, we need to turn from it and go inland, in the mountainous region of the highlands. Just keep in mind that the roads are open from June to September and the rest of the time is able to drive a specially prepared four-wheel-drive cars on the huge wheels with low-pressure tyres. But even in favorable period ordinary cars check here ordered. Keep this in mind when choosing a rental car if you are going to visit the highlands. Not time we remembered the good word of good accessibility and all-wheel drive of our Subaru when he crossed many fords, plowing through rough graders and climbed rocky hills.

Iceland is a large sanctuary to move there can be only on the roads. And not because high risk to get bogged down in the sand, the rocks, the snow. Left wheel track is not delayed for decades. Therefore, violators are fined mercilessly.Iceland is a large sanctuary to move there can be only on the roads. And not because high risk to get bogged down in the sand, the rocks, the snow. Left wheel track is not delayed for decades. Therefore, violators are fined mercilessly.

As you go deeper in the highlands, the landscape becomes increasingly barren and resembles the moon. In winter this area turns into a vast snow desert. Only some desperate local, to cut a path from North to South of the island, cross it on supersaturation. And in the summer you will not find anyone except tourists, breaking camp and spending the night in local houses.

But what to go here? At least for the sake of the valley Landmannalaugar, ascended to a height of 600 meters above sea level. There are many natural hot healing water from thermal springs. But not as much as this place attracts with its colorful mountains of rhyolite. This volcanic rock, in composition resembling the granite contains inclusions of various minerals. Reaction with water and oxygen to brighten them in a variety of shades. Beautiful incredible! In most parts of the Highlands nature rested, and then woke up and put it down.

For four days we toured the major landmarks of Iceland, met with the local cuisine, customs and even visited there where a lot of tourists for various reasons not to call. To see this country and a couple of days, and you can hang on a month — Iceland deserve no less. The tour duration is determined solely by the availability of free time and a thick wallet. After all, this country is one of the most expensive for tourists. Even the most ardent ascetics are forced to leave at 60-70 Euro per day for food and accommodation in a hostel or tent campsites. But it’s worth it. And if possible do come — you will not regret.

Top 10 male auto what brands they want and what choose

In 2019, the premium car segment showed sales growth of 5.1%, according to “AUTOSTAT”. And this despite the fact that the demand for the market as a whole declined by 2.3% (according to AEB). In all, over the year in Russia has sold 159 of the 400 cars in the premium class.

Among the brands, the leaders were Mercedes-Benz, whose dealers have implemented 42 046 cars, BMW who has sold 41 520 cars, and Lexus, whose cars are preferred by 22 395 people. The five leaders also included Audi (16 333 sold the car) and Volvo (8846 machines). The second five is as follows: Land Rover (8663 pieces), Porsche (6023 pieces), Infiniti (3479 items), MINI (2524 PCs) and Genesis (2276 pieces).

But much more interesting, what models of premium cars today are prized by wealthy people in Russia.
