The ancient tradition of the auto mechanics league requires that you send an inexperienced “salag” for compression, handing him a bucket. However, a bearded joke can be adequately answered by bringing … a BERKUT Spec-2M compressor. This is a natural “bucket of compression”, with the full to the top!
Compressors of the Berkut line have long been well known in the Russian market. Their authority among users is evidenced by the fact that, in addition to the traditional use for pumping wheels, they are used in the construction of powerful pressure control stations in the tires of SUVs to increase patency, switch air locks, create air suspensions, etc. Surprisingly, until recently, the company’s assortment did not have a model with automatic shutdown at a given pressure – a very popular function among motorists. And so she appeared – BERKUT Spec-2M: Continue reading
Already at the moment of reading the title, the opinions of readers are probably divided into at least three streams. A third already instinctively replies “it’s not worth it, this is a VAZ”, another third exclaims “for three hundred ?!”, and the rest thoughtfully props their heads with their hands and thinks: “for three hundred – alive, yes with a gun, yes with air conditioning, why not?” . As a matter of fact, we do not set ourselves the goal of convincing the first or convincing the second – unless to help the third.

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
