5 cons and 5 pros of the wagon Lada Vesta Cross

Lada Vesta Cross – like many in this title already for the heart of the Russian motorist merged. Breakthrough for AVTOVAZ model will certainly take its rightful place among such iconic cars in the line of the Volga automobile plant as: VAZ-2101, 2109 and 2110. No wonder the international team have worked on the exterior and the innards of the model rolling up his sleeves.

 

However, knowing multiple quality problems, which stretch for VAZ a long train of 90’s and early naughties, some motorists are skeptical about the “West”, ahead of time putting her stamp of unreliable, poor quality, and failure of the machine. Such gloating usually based on hearsay, conjecture and personal judgement, divorced from reality (many of the critics do not have to use the car), because the model still has not reached a significant operational milestone.

 

But first measurements and the first conclusions on the opinions of real owners can already do. Users in the network are gradually beginning to share them, generating both good and bad reviews. Are tested and known autoitalia, for example, the oldest Russian magazine “Behind the wheel”. Making the digest, we offer you to familiarize yourself with the most common disadvantages of Vesta that can not forgive most motorists. Some problems, as noted by autoportal occur even with small runs. So, here are the most common ones:

 

Cons Lada Vesta Cross

Transmission. Some owners say the noises emanating from the box during movement. Serious defects in this sort was not observed, but the sounds bothered. There were complaints about the bugs in the original firmware (important for robotic automatic transmission), which were failures in switching between gears. Was treated “peresadivka” firmware from the official dealer.

Some owners also complained about the “mechanics” who had seen problems with the bearings and the difficult shifting.

 

The chassis of the car. On the modification of Cross upgraded rear suspension and installed front shocks with springs, all due to the increased by 25 mm ground clearance. On the Internet there is a view that the pillars were supplied with sufficient quality, that the knuckle over time, there was a backlash.

Another kind of “disease” – fly caps Central part of the wheel. Over time the plastic from the temperature of shrinking, the mounting part out of the grooves.

 

Engine. Topping up oil between THAT phenomenon is apparently normal. Watch the level of oil in the engine since purchase. Some owners made up to a few liters between buying a new car and the first maintenance. I say, then calming down.

Salon Vesta. Over time, the interior begins to “sing.” Creak elements salon because of the lack of seals. At least in the Runet there is a view that the way to fix this occasional problem. Braid steering wipe and trim on the Central tunnel in the region of the handle of MKP scratched.

Wiper blades – a sudden disadvantage. Suddenly fell under the hand of the wiper blade. The material on the website “Behind the wheel” noted that: “… they (the brush), not only that, he jammed the glass, and smeared even in contact with plain water from the “sprinklers””. Replacement brushes help you in.

Problems that manifest themselves not always:

Noticed the failure of the heated windshield (blame the firmware or need to check fuses), sometimes goes down the ignition coils (warranty case), I use Bluetooth and rear view camera. Creaking hinges of the doors (rare), SAG elastic suspension of the exhaust system.

 

Of course it’s not all the sins of Vesta Cross, we found a variety of owners. But one thing unites them – a serious of breakdowns, complete overhaul of engine or replacement transmission has not yet happened. Rather, it can be had, but no resonant scandal to the whole country is not caused. So let’s get to the pros Vesta Cross.

 

Pros Lada Vesta Cross

AvtoVAZ became better. Major breakdowns do not wait. Yes, the little things that we were able to find the Network, there are problems, but they are likely to belong to the category of “children”. The automaker is working on fine-tuning new products and really listens to its customers and users of Vesta. The model he made a big bet and WHA is simply no chance to discredit itself, again. At stake is the reputation and huge investments. At this point it appears.

 

Engine. If we ignore the “maslool” – motor will be torquey, not greedy. Good middling. Those drivers who has already managed to roll over 100 thousand km of additional complaints have not been announced.

Clearance – plus – Lada Vesta SW Cross. Clearance really helps in everyday urban use. Where will not pass conventional Vesta, the Cross version will easily overcome the obstacle without damage.

 

The European level? No wonder “the West” is actively promoted in Western markets. In General, the universal, and not only it looks modern and attractive (at least for most users). Therefore, care AVTOVAZ from “bricks” on wheels is another plus.

 

AvtoVAZ is upgrading their offspring. Vesta with the new firmware of the engine and noise insulation feels better, rides better and quieter. Ahead of family of models will have a lot of improvements, to stop AVTOVAZ is not going and that’s great!
