What winter tires do Russian car owners prefer?
  • 06.12.18 What winter tires do Russian car owners prefer?

    Experts of the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" in the framework of the new research "AUTOSTAT OMNIBUS - 2018. Car tires: car owners' preferences" conducted a survey on the choice and operation of winter tires. The results of a survey that was conducted in November showed that 94.2% of respondents “change” their tires for the winter ones and only 5.8% do not have a second set of tires.



About 650 thousand cars were recalled in Russia in 2019


In 2019, Rosstandart agreed 139 action programs aimed at preventing harm during the operation of vehicles. The total number of vehicles recalled was 649,594 units. In addition to cars, among the recalled vehicles in 2019 there were also Yamaha, Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Ski-Doo snowmobiles. The total number of recalled motorcycles and snowmobiles reached 1080 units, the press service of the department reports. In total, since 2015, when Rosstandart began to develop actively car recall mechanisms, more than 3.5 million units of vehicles fell under the recall.

As noted, among the vehicles with defects there are representatives of all segments - from low-cost to premium. The reasons for the recalls were discrepancies identified both by automakers independently and as a result of tests conducted by Rosstandart in the framework of state supervision. Identified defects are eliminated within the framework of recall programs agreed by Rosstandart exclusively at the expense of car manufacturers. But the programs themselves do not have a statute of limitations - statements appearing in some sources that the programs have been operating for a certain number of years are erroneous. At any time, the motorist can apply for repairs and get the necessary services for free.
