Yes, I love the Volga fanatically and for a long time. But, alas, my “brunette” is a typical bitch: she accepts courtship and gifts willingly, but she is constantly acting up and rolling stupid scenes out of the blue. If you try to calculate the number of such tantrums in recent years, you’ll feel uneasy, but I’ll try to bend my fingers. For four years it took her - take a deep breath! - the second gearbox, the second engine control unit, the second wiper mechanism, the second DMRV, the second pomp, the third battery, the third generator, the fourth washer pump, the fifth central light switch … Uh-f - I don’t consider small “pop-ups” like drive jams door locks and fuses in the fuse of the cooling system fan.

But this is not at all about poor Cinderella - almost everything was replaced on my Volzhanka almost from the first day! What exactly? I’ll try to remember: all the electrical wiring plus all the sensors, as well as caps, gaskets, rings, liners, coils, candles, clutch, hydraulic tensioners, hydraulic pushers, chains, drums, silencer … At the same time, “Set” stars appeared immediately instead of shoes, a little later mine a miracle found the ZF power steering with the Nardi steering wheel in addition, alloy wheels and air conditioning. Yes, and another Finnish salon. And cylinder liners. “Music” and soundproofing do not count …

Honestly, I wanted to believe that after all this, you can calm down. However, the heavens decided to laugh at the “Russian tuning” - the list of initially replaced elements was too small and did not completely coincide with the list of what required replacement later! Moreover, sometimes something happened that cannot happen at all … Have you, for example, seen a diffuser falling off a headlight? That's it … And also, when my “brunette” wants to play pranks with me, she starts winking at the low-fuel light bulb. Translated into human language, this means: “Now I’m going to faint!” If you don’t rush to a gas station immediately, then after 20 kilometers at a nearby traffic light you will be surprised - the engine will calmly throttle at idle, but will refuse to drive further. A whim is treated exclusively by adding 5-7 liters of gasoline to the tank: I don’t want to bring the theory under this matter.

Of course, any toy should be at least a little useful. When our “brunette” is in a good mood, then we are solidly and powerfully rushing to the destination, forgetting all the previous quarrels. At the same time, I sincerely consider this car beautiful - in my opinion, this is the only modern creation of the automobile industry that has its own face. I am pleased to drive this car - I like to be carried away on it thousands of kilometers from home. He is never “offended” on the roads - and not everyone can. By the way, my personal record for fuel consumption is 8 liters per hundred: less does not work out. This is if you do not climb above 110-120 on the speedometer: the savings do not live on the right side of the scale.

To questions such as: “Why plunk money here?” I can’t answer. It’s just that I’m stupid to get used to my things … But for things to really be “their own”, you unwittingly start putting your soul into them. And money, alas, also: interesting toys are expensive. Of course, you can call tuning blue bulbs and stickers like “You will be behind us,” but I have a different approach.

And again, I will criticize my favorite car factory. What class do we have “Volga” - is it really a “business class”? Have mercy, gentlemen, even my completely remade and licked-out cars cannot be driven into this niche … Who can I say thanks for the idiotic steering column switch, which cannot simultaneously wave windshield wipers and pour glass on the water? And for the huge trunk, in which nothing fits? And what about the ZMZ-4062 pseudo-modern engine, whose power cannot be determined by either ZMZ or GAZ? So how many forces did you find there - 150 or 135? And why on earth do I have 145 on my data sheet? And why aren't they really there? Zhvanetsky is right - “their horsepower is greater than ours” …
