When a Volkswagen named symbiotic pair of expressions in German - Folks and Vagen, people and cars. Affordable car was originally an idea for all people, was intended to be a full-fledged leader market to enter, you can tell, if not in every cottage, then in every garage. And we must assume that Volkswagen has achieved this goal. In fact, cheap and reliable car showed its advantages, not only the best way to quality highways, but also on our roads. Of course, the first on the economic territory of the former Soviet Union began to penetrate no new cars as well, so to speak, second-hand.
That is now repaired VW cars are special in dealerships and is fully carried out with the replacement of consumable items and other small components. But in the early 1990s co-operatives were hiding in the garage mechanics, which restored completely finished off severe accident and really unfit for consumption from age machine. However, since there were largely inaccessible to the Soviet car owners car air conditioners, elektropodemniki for windscreens. And, besides - of course, the automatic gearbox. And in those days, VW automatic transmission repair was significantly more economical and promised a few more high-quality results than use of local production of "Lada", or the Volga, not to mention "The Cossacks" and "Moskvich". It shows customers of Volkswagen spilled the Soviet Union, what it means to look simple and absolutely affordable car in the Western sense. Probably because so quickly broke the great one-sixth of the land ', which demanded the production of cars, as queens, frequent stay in the garage of the owner. Moreover, not only near, but even constant technical attention.

Also recommend to note that repair VW Passat b5 or every other well-known auto Folskvagena many times cheaper than a car service or made in Japan American cars from the United States. But it is no secret that the cost of service, of course, fundamentally important.
