A big piece of solid metalwork
Clutch pressure plate went wrong this year and I'm still looking for a spare part.
I bought the car with broken differential, had to replace it after a year.
I really love this car, it's big, heavy (Russians had experience only with tanks before ;) but the engine is really powerful (55kW) and has diesel-like torque on low rpm. Engine is copied from the well known BMW 1500 sportster.
Fuel consumption is about 8l/100km.
This Moskvitch performs well, especially on slippery surfaces, despite being rear wheel drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
