Fifty thousand kilometers and two years of operation showed that for the performance of this «sneva» head and shoulders above its predecessor, which have passed through my hands.

CHEVROLET NIVA

  • The factory GM-AVTOVAZ
  • Year of manufacture – 2013
  • In operation «Behind the wheel» – since may 2013
  • Mileage at the time of the report – 52 000 km
  • Publication in SP: 2013, No. 10; 2015, No. 1

Take the tightness of the cabin: the machine 2013 release in winter retains heat much longer, and in summer a passenger and Luggage compartments barely penetrates the dust. And rear door glasses are in movement themselves more can not be lowered.

What is especially important for owners, the car is much less likely to break – like in detail and in an adult. For example, «ancestor» shock absorbers and ball joints were dying earlier than worn out front brake pads and water pump did not live up to 35 000 km, and a List of replaced parts quickly was covered in a thick writing – book- reports on the operation might have been though in each issue of WR. Now the bulk of the spending on petrol and routine maintenance. To repair the waste of rare and modest. By the way, for the next service (45 000 km) paid a total of 3340 rubles; however, work conducted independently, the benefit is they are simple.

But a carefree time, it seems, goes. Closer to 50 thousands rustled gearbox. The noise from under the car, at first barely perceptible at idle, louder with every hundred kilometers. When you squeezed the clutch, the rustling disappeared… Release? But «snowy» he is constantly rotating. Then, most likely, the bearing of a primary shaft of a transmission, which is worse: to repair will not just remove the box, but to dismantle.

The ceiling close to the rear seats is a recent innovation. Does he need? For all the time I used it a couple of times. He’s not «tied» to the door, switch on / off only forcibly (keys), and it is in everyday life uncomfortable.

Chevrolet Niva will receive a special model for the winter

Decided to go to crumb-Service: Togliatti is the official dealer has the necessary tools and instruments for repair of the box, no need to look for good parts. The experts agreed with my diagnosis and took the car to work.

I asked at the same time to replace the oil in the whole drivetrain less viscous. Filled at the factory lubrication so thickened in the cold, that when you release the clutch pedal after a cold start, the engine was stalling, refusing to crank out a frozen transmission. The choice fell on multigrade synthetics BP Energear SGX 75W‑90. This oil faithfully worked many tens of thousands of kilometers on the previous «snipe», so to experiment, I did not. For a five-liter canister posted 4600 rubles – adequate for today price.

Box repaired a couple of days. Repair eased the purse of nearly 10 000. Among replaced parts turned out to be quite efficient in view of the release bearing, the main and working cylinders of coupling (replacement of the fluid in the drive also had to pay for) and a few seals. That is negligence, «divorce» or a reasonable replacement?

The shelf holders on the «old lady» collapsed in the first year of service. Stay there for the third year. Even no cracks.

Call a friend, the quality Director of JV «GM-AVTOVAZ» Eugene Berezina, with a request to check the status of all replaced parts. The results of the laboratory tests confirmed my suspicions: only two bearing – primary shaft (2123 — 1701033-01) and intermediate shaft (2101-1701066-01) – had the pitting wear that was the cause of the noise, but other parts proved to be quite efficient. The only justification for the replacement is that the earlier «snipah» these nodes often went out of order and this service has updated them just in case, so in the short term the owner is not applied to the repair because of these parts.

However, overpayment «for the future» amounted to 2500 rubles. Psychologists advise: in any, even the most difficult situation you need to look for positive aspects. Well, I hope that now gearbox and clutch won’t require repair. Like the rest of the car.
