Of course, one cannot evaluate the work of such huge collectives on the machines that they rivet.
Let me remind you the essence of the problem: an electric power amplifier broke down, spontaneously twisting the wheels into the oncoming lane. AvtoVAZ replaced the defective unit. It turned out that the supplier of the amplifier, the Kaluga plant "Autoelectronics", instead of an expensive German control module, set its own. According to the representatives of Auto Electronics, it took almost two years to replace the import with the domestic block and they knew about these works in Togliatti. Problems arose only when a new module was docked with a common controller board - the soldering was not good enough, which resulted in a big wave of malfunctions. From December 2010 to February 2011, under warranty, 1938 EURs had to be replaced. With the norm of not more than three defective products per thousand pieces, a collapse occurred at that time - 21.3 per thousand!
However, they didn’t see anything terrible at AvtoVAZ. From the answer of the press center of the car factory: “In the process of joint verification by the specialists of AVTOVAZ and the supplier company of all cases of consumers contacting service centers with a complaint about incorrect operation of the electric amplifier, it was established that the detected number of malfunctions is not massive. Work was carried out to replace electric amplifiers from a party that came under suspicion. The AvtoVAZ Quality Directorate carries out daily work to identify any possible defects and eliminate them in a timely manner.”
However, the defect manifested itself in different ways for everyone: someone managed to drive no more than 400 km, my car broke down while running 22 692 km! Perhaps someone's EUR has not yet “fired”. Nothing terrible happened according to the developers: “Sudden transitions of EMURU 2172-345008-02 from the compensation mode to the failure mode at different speeds and driving modes do not lead to a decrease in the safety of driving the Lada-2170 car.

Today, Autoelectronics has invested more than a million euros in the modernization of equipment to improve product quality, completely avoiding manual labor. It can be seen that this story shook Kaluga residents noticeably and they learned a certain lesson.
AvtoVAZ also used this situation, but for its own purposes, pulling a leash for a fined supplier. The Priora will remain on the assembly line until 2016, further the prospects for the Kaluga amplifier are foggy. On the "Kalina", and even more so on the "Grant", they do not let him in, and nowhere else to put him.
It’s great, of course, that the factories responded to the publication, but it is no coincidence that we quoted a quote from Zhvanetsky in the epigraph. Either our amplifier turned out to be a one-of-a-kind device, which almost killed the driver before his death, or again they say something to us. In general, the topic is not yet closed.
