What about the Russian auto industry?
If you need a car for a novice girl with mechanics, we advise you to take a closer look at the Russian car market. The domestic manufacturer LADA produces good cars on the mechanics. For a person who has just received the rights, this is the best option for an affordable price. Obviously, the repair and maintenance of a vehicle in the country in which it was produced is much cheaper than a foreign competitor. So which car should women choose? Unfortunately, it is impossible to unequivocally answer which car is suitable for any girl. The choice of car is influenced by many factors. From the location of the buyer (you can’t ride a convertible in Siberian winter frosts) and driving skills, to the amount and dimensions of the car. You might find it helpful to make a list of thoserequirements that are important (in your opinion) for the car. For example, residents of Yakutia and Siberia will take into account the cross-country ability of a car in one of the key positions, but residents of cities do not need this.
The choice, as it becomes clear, is really rather big. At the same time, the cars discussed above are either budget options or the middle class. But these days, it's increasingly common to see a young girl driving, say, a BMW X6 or a Lexus. This suggests that driving has indeed ceased to be an exclusively male hobby. As they say, a car is not a luxury, but a means of transportation, and today a person of any gender can be a car enthusiast.
