Rating of low-cost suv service


In fact, any act requires an analysis of its consequences. At least, when a purchase of half a million rubles is at stake, it doesn’t bother to think about what such an acquisition may later take. For example, if your goal is a crossover, then calculating the cost of maintaining it in the future is both important and reasonable. After all, this brand of cars can not be attributed to the category of cheap. Expenses, in addition to fuel and rubber, will be taxed on transport, parking, washing. Do not forget repairs and service. It does not interfere, in this regard, even in advance to prepare for themselves an estimate of the cost of maintaining a particular model offered by the market, in order to choose a reliable and inexpensive crossover in service.

Two domestic applicants

If we put in the forefront which crossover is the cheapest to maintain, then here, of course, out of competition are two domestic models: the small SUV Lada 2121 (4 × 4) Niva and UAZ Hunter.

Both cars have a solid production history. But looking back on this story in Soviet times was somehow not out of hand - everything changed dramatically and the current reliability of these machines is much higher, the one that was 30 years ago, and for the lack of which these models were scolded.

Non-modern workhorse

But the cost of servicing the submitted Russian models is extremely small. First, there will be no problems with spare parts. Secondly, the qualification of service personnel is higher and cannot be, it has been practiced for decades. Moreover, given the high prevalence of models, often repairs are performed by the owner of the car. So it turns out with the initial cost of Lada 450-500 thousand, brake pads in the future will cost no more than 700 rubles, and a set of shock absorbers - 2500, not more.

Spare parts for Hunter expensive

With Hunter, the situation is about the same. Here, the cost is even cheaper - it will not reach 450 thousand. But the parts will cost a bit more expensive. The same pads - under 800 rubles., And shock absorbers - 3 000 rubles.

What do we have for such a price !?

With Lada - four-wheel drive, 4 different engines and two manual 4-and 5-speed gearbox to choose from. With Hunter, the situation is almost the same. These two models coincide and are backward from the century. When you consider these two models, you realize that the concept of “design” is not applicable to them, in principle. These are just workhorses for moving from one locality to another. Such machines are bought only where life has stopped, and they know nothing about the offers of Korean and Japanese manufacturers.

In general, there are options, just need to carefully calculate everything.
