    Also, the Sweptail made by Rolls Royce doesn't look worthy of the Rolls Royce badge due to the prices and the looks.

    Yes, plus the more expensive price tag, which was higher than the Bugatti Veyron. Also, this car:

    I love Acura, but this doesn't need to exist, even as a concept car. Looks just a NSX morphed 350z or E-Class.

    The 2017 Toyota Prius. It looks like a 2014 Prius made as a glitchy Russian Beamng mod.

    It's really the design that makes it fail. It looks like a 2016 version of the 1st gen Prius.

    Come on, it's not that bad, altho I am no fan of anything that came after the 2108(Samara) because they went to fking FWD because the Ministry of Auto Industry said so.(Which got AZLK in trouble as they had a RWD Hatch already on it's 3rd prototype and almost in production.)

    Theyre not bad in general, but theyre bad for what theyre were projected, they were projected to be reliable and then when Putin tryed to start one in the launch, it taked 5 trys to start it, thats why i posted in this thread

    Would make sense why though to bring the car like that here.

    The Porsche with a VW bus/van engine. Is that it?

    Well, no company produces 100% flawless production.
    This is just 1 out of many.
    I have heard that it's actually the alarm system that prevented the car from starting up.

    Why do you all hate the Yugo?
    Check out Boosted Boris' review on one on the 'ring.
    It can be made into something good, the Serbians didn't do so, so the population could buy it and they could produce it in mass numbers, it wasn't intended for export into western countries, it was exported via an external company called "International Automobile Importers".

    Well he tryed to turn the car on with the keys, so why the alarm would dont let the car turn on, that makes no sense, if he was using a screwdriver or hot-wiring i even would understand, but thats a tecnically reliability fault, a car with he's keys should let the driver start it, as you said is 1 of many, but the majority of that many dont went to the market wanting to change world's mind about russian reliability ,thats why is in this thread, like the reliant robin and many others, it failed to show (at he's launch at least) for what it was created, reliability.

    Well, my family has bought at least three dozen cars, new and used, and the probability of them starting up after purchase was 1:1.
    Yes. It was one of the best-handling 80s cars in C&D's opinion, and is one of the most affordable 80s Euro classics.

    My family too, the only problem that they had was with a piece of cloth in the gas tank, and in the other was low quality ethanol, but nothing with the cars mechanic as builded or something related to the mechanic of the car

    Should add "when they bought it", because my dad's Nissan once refused to start.

    It was below -10°C (ca. 15°F) when it happened, though.

    In the cloth case was somewere between the '80s (the mechanic have forgotten he's cloth inside the fuel tank, thats why was not the car's fault) and the second one was a month ago, was somewhere to 7°C and 8°C and mixed with a low quality ethanol it refused to start, then a hour later it started
    PS: The first was a 1962 vw beetle and the second one was a 2013 Vw spacefox

    Zaz 968, its RWD, RR, made whit flammable(lithium rich?) metal, paired whit aftermarketish gasoline combustion based heating system(that was unreliable, especially the spark plug, it was not uncommon for the spark plug not to ignite the fuel(or ignite itself), causing extra fuel pumped into the combustion tank, causing bigger explosion than it was designed for). Those 2 combined made it a extreme soviet Ford Pinto.

    Immobiliser usually requires a code in the key or a button to be pressed, so it may have been the issue.
