Top cars on the speed of decay

All cars are rusting (except Delorian – it is stainless steel), but some are especially fast. We will not once again be apologetic about some products of the domestic auto industry: their customers knew what they were going for. And let’s not dig too deep, remembering the models that ended their conveyor life in the last century. We chose the ten most rotting cars of our time.

Retrotest VW Passat B2. It still travels 120 km / h!

He was many-sided and amazingly tenacious. In different parts of the world, he was known as Corsar, Carat, Santana and Quantum. Yes, the mission “to become the founder of a class named after himself,” as the more successful younger brother did, failed, but he managed to become a people’s car.

Why buy an English crossover, not a Japanese SUV? Testing the new Evoque

Russian dealers in June will receive the Range Rover Evoque new generation. At one time, this first generation model caused a lot of rustling in the class of crossovers. The hit of sales cannot be called, but it set the direction followed by many other brands. Following the British, everyone rushed to make small “designer“ SUVs ”. Even Toyota now has a C-HR. So, it is time for the British to surprise the public again with something. Otherwise, why are they asking for a “parketnik” in a good configuration the amount that would be enough for the Prado?

Few people know that it is the Grozny car market in our country that is perhaps the most unusual. Here are the rules of communication of sellers and buyers and their ideas about consumer protection. It is curious that here in the open air they trade not only second-hand, but also absolutely new copies – still in the factory film. As elsewhere, there are pros and cons.
