To correctly choose a GAZelle from the proposed lineup, consider for what purpose you need a car that they are planning to carry maximum cargo weight, etc., for example, to transport boards, pipes and other bulky items (no more than 4m) to suit long-wheelbase modification. If, however, the cargo you will need to bring to the facility and a team of workers – the ideal option would be a Farmer. Plan to load the vehicle with a crane or loader – choose side car model. For standard goods, weighing up to 1.5 tons will look after the truck with the awning or the GAZelle-a van.
Decide what fuel should work your car. Carefully weigh all the "pros" and "cons". Note that the desire to save money on fuel can lead to frequent repair of the machine. So, when you start a cold engine in the winter on gas, reduces the service life of the gearbox, and due to insufficient compression for gas in a petrol engine - burned saddle head and valves cylinder block. In addition, the transition to gas fuel decreases the engine power from 5 to 15%.
During the inspection of the GAZelle with mileage carefully inspect the frame (especially in a location directly behind the cab) for any welding. This is one of the weaknesses of this brand and with frequent overloads it breaks in the first place. Note the clearances of the arches, headlights and thresholds – ideally they should be the same. Check out the body by the presence of rotten boards. Don't forget about the suspension: springs and podreczniki. They should not be straight, and pillows - cracked.
Look under the hood. No oil stains and traces of sealant at the junction of the hose should not be. Note the clutch master cylinder. In intensive use of cars, cracks. Then start the engine and listen to his work. It should work smoothly, without any extraneous sounds (clicks, knocking, etc.).
Another weak point is the rear axle. To check it, ask to drive the car and accelerate it. If he doesn't – buzz (howl) will not. Test the transmission. Should be no crunch when changing gears. When braking, make sure the brake pedal has created a confident, elastic resistance rather than go back to the floor.
With a purchase, you take a person who is well versed in the cars of this brand.
