Very expensive in the long run
Head gasket, drive shafts, loose bolts everywhere, electrical - just about everything that can go wrong did.
The only good think is that Niva in an incredible off road vehicle. On it is just bad in every way.
At the time I could not afford Hilux so I bought cheap Niva which in the end has turned out to be more costly than hilux due to constant repairs. Apart from that It was a great fun 4WD which goes anywhere so I have some good memories, but would never buy one again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
