Two in one: buy a Honda Civic VIII for 460 thousand (part 1)

Civic is the undisputed best seller. It was with the advent of this model that Honda was learned as a manufacturer of not only motorcycles, but also cars. Historically, Honda has been targeting the North American market, but the Civic has been selling pretty well all over the world. The release of the eighth generation Civic forced Toyota to postpone the release of the next Corolla – it took hastily to make changes to the design.
Indeed, Honda managed to create a unique design that appealed to a wide audience – a sedan for the “classics” and a hatchback for the “futurists”. Continue reading

Awesome rust, insidious step, call a friend: Cadillac Escalade 3 gen with a range of 200,000 km (part 2)

Simple, but change the oil!
The “handout” of the previous Escalade is simple in design, and although it does not have clutches, and the differential is free, the oil has to be changed strictly for 80 thousand km – this is the regulation, but the assembly itself is problem-free. The same story with bridges, at least on our copy they are in perfect condition. It happens that cars come with a misaligned contact spot. As a rule, this is easily fixed. Exposure of the spot can be carried out exclusively by an experienced craftsman: for this, an installation brass washer is used, which, when mechanically applied, is crushed by a torque wrench, giving the desired gear position.

Solaris alternative for comparable money: is it worth buying a Kia Cerato II for 600 thousand

A few weeks ago, we were thinking about buying a used Hyundai Solaris, arguing along the way that, given the fluctuations in the exchange rate, these cars today are not much cheaper than new ones. However, if you are disgusted with the idea of ​​buying what was originally created as a “budget sedan,” the secondary market nods affirmatively and points to the second-generation Kia Cerato. Comparable age and, oddly enough, quite comparable prices – although our Avito Auto colleagues suggest that, despite the overlap in the price range, it’s better to lay more than a thousand copies on a Solaris of similar age. What do you offer for the money?
The age difference when trying to win in the car class, of course, is obvious: for 600 thousand our virtual Solaris was three years old, but Cerato for this money will be at least twice as old – simply because the second generation sales ended in 2013. But, unlike the boring Solaris, which can be a sedan or a hatchback, Cerato can be found in the coupe. Continue reading
