Russians are blessed because they still can buy this model!
- Due to corrosion, right wing was replaced after 8 years.
- The clock was not accurate.
- Once, after 6 years, the car could not start.
- The benzine slightly smells inside the car.
We used a LADA 1600 for 14 years, passed 78000 km, until it was destroyed in the war. It survived cold winters and hot summers without a garage. The car has a lot of baggage and passenger space. Our Lada never failed on the road. The instrument table is much better than the instrument table of any Mercedes of that time.
Generally: LADA 1600 was the best car I had, better than previous my Skoda 1000MB and later VW Golf II.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
