Five reasons to love and hate Daewoo Nexia

In the land of morning freshness, Opel Kadett turned first into Daewoo Racer, then into Cielo (and the car was delivered to a number of markets under the name Lemans and Pointer). In 1994, the car was upgraded to the Nexia name, and in 1995, the Daewoo assembly line in the Uzbek city of Asaka, not far from Andijan, began to work.
In those years, the Daewoo chaebol was actively expanding, and Nexia began to be assembled in Vietnam, Egypt and Romania, and since 1996 it stopped production at all in Korea, leaving it, however, in foreign branches. By the way, from 1996 to 1998, the SKD assembly was also carried out in Russia, at the Krasny Aksai plant in the Rostov region. Still, the main supplier of Nexia to our market was the UzDaewoo plant, where full-cycle production was organized. Continue reading

Almost as real: the cheapest all-wheel drive crossovers

Most recently, we have already figured out what choice there is for those who need not just a crossover, but a real frame SUV, but at the same time for little money. Today we will talk about crossovers in their modern sense – that is, we will not include Niva here (neither the former nor the real one), as well as those cheap frames mentioned in the past material. And yet, even with the mandatory all-wheel drive, you can also meet the amount of “a million and a little.” What is on the market for this money?
Like it or not, and everything is expected to begin with Renault Duster. Keeping the extremely low cost of the basic configuration due to its absolutely minimal equipment, Duster, nevertheless, and with the increase in the number of options, remains one of the most attractive options.

RADAR DETECTORS NEW GENERATION

If earlier, antiradars constantly “squeaked” and unnerved drivers with false positives, now this problem is a thing of the past. At first, the GPS system came to the rescue, which determined the speed of the car and, accordingly, did not work below a certain threshold, which the driver set at its discretion. For example, you can set the threshold of the device to 69 km / h, and if the speed of the machine is lower – the device will be silent. This allowed to get rid of most of the false positives, but not all. Therefore, a new type of radar detectors with a signature module came (signature from English – signature). Continue reading
