Own car.... How proud and solid it sounds, is not it? The car is not only a means of transportation, but also a true loyal friend, a constant companion both in the stone city "jungle" and on long travels. Perhaps, a huge amount of forces, time and money will go to its maintenance, but is this an obstacle for a real motorist? First and foremost, it is worth considering that buying your own vehicle is too serious a decision to take and execute it in a hurry. It is necessary to think about a lot of things, among which it is especially necessary to understand and choose brands of cars.
Selecting a manufacturer is a responsible process, soHow does the cost and life of the machine depend on it, and sometimes the amount of money spent on possible repairs. So, the brands of cars divided into several categories - fashionable, reliable, unusual or domestic:
- fashion or image, representatives of the largestbrands of the world, which include Japanese car brands (Mitsubishi, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan or Honda), English (Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover or Lotus), German (Audi, BMW, Maybach, Mercedes-Benz, Opel, Volkswagen) , Italian (Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, FIAT, Lamborghini and Maserati) and Swedish (Saab and Volvo). The advantages of acquiring such vehicles are unquestionable: the owner's pride, fewer failures, ensuring the safety of both the driver and passengers, and even pedestrians, greater reliability of the materials used in the assembly. As for the minuses, special claims are made to the high cost of equipment of the car, the constant queues in the car-care centers servicing such cars, not to mention the increased criminal interest and high insurance value of CASCO.
- reliable, which many consider the averagein everything - both in price and quality. If you prefer this type of car, then you can choose auto Korean (SsangYong, KIA or Hyundai), American (Pontiac, Saturn, Chrysler and Ford), French (Citroen, Peugeot and Renault) and Czech manufacturers (Skoda). The great advantage of such vehicles is that many car owners consider the combination of quality and price already mentioned above. In addition, brands of cars in the "reliable" category are not considered to be the most popular among hijackers, they require a reasonable price for maintenance and repair. In a few words about them you can say simply: strong, true, inexpensive. However, the shortcomings can not be avoided, among which the main one is the lack of high-quality service and priority service.
- Unusual, that is auto Chinese orIranian production. Most often these cars are inexpensive copies of models of world brands that were produced earlier and are popular. It is clear that the main advantage of such vehicles is their low price, but the disadvantages are much greater. This is a mismatch with the basic safety requirements, and frequent lack of necessary spare parts, and a lack of car-care centers that can deal with the problems of such machines.
- domestic - for Russian roads this is exactlyexactly what is needed. Russian car brands are easily repairable (naturally, within reasonable limits), their owners are rarely faced with the problem of the lack of auto parts or necessary parts. It is also positive that such cars are quite inexpensive. Of the major drawbacks, one can only name one - the prestige of owning a domestic vehicle.
What to choose is the business of the person they wantbuy yourself a car. Of course, we can not compare the style of life that German cars of the brand BMW or Audi represent with the creations of the domestic car industry, but a beautiful packaging and a loud brand are not the whole machine that will have to meet the daily needs of its owner in the conditions of Russian reality.
