What surprises can present Skoda Rumster with a run
Skoda Rumster is presented in three versions: the usual passenger version, the commercial version called "Remster Practitioner" and "Rumster Scout" - differs from previous versions with a protective plastic overhang around the perimeter of the body, this version in our market is extremely rare. As the domestic experience of operation has shown, the Skoda Rumster bodies have good protection against corrosion. A weak point is the electrical wiring between the rack and the door, eventually it hardens and breaks. Also, the endpoints of the locks were rather weak, this sore is found on all brand cars Skoda.
The main part of Skoda Rumster is presented in our market with gasoline engines. The entire line of power units is similar to motors Skoda Fabia. The most widespread was the engine with a volume of 1.6 liters (105 hp), there are less frequent motors 1.2 liters and a 1.4 liter turbodiesel. As the operational experience has shown, the most problematic is a three-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1.2 liters, the weakest point in it is the timing chain, which stretches to a run of 100,000 kilometers, which makes the engine unstable to work, and the inevitable encounter of valves with pistons. Also, these motors are not recommended to be started from the pusher. With such start-up, it is possible to bend the valve, because with this start up, the hydraulic tightener does not have enough oil pressure and it can not provide the necessary chain tension. The metal chain of the timing is equipped with a 1.6 engine, which must be changed every 60 thousand miles. On all chain motors, a gasket installed between the cylinder block and the timing chain side cover may leak over time. In the cooling system, the temperature sensor often fails, this can lead to engine overheating. In all petrol versions, the ignition coils and the exhaust gas recirculation valves can be disturbed. Also in the engine compartment can add extra trouble to the wiring that is laid in the vicinity of the battery. My suspension Rumster borrowed from his sister Skoda Fabia, in front is installed MacPherson, behind the semi-independent twisting beam. Weak position of the front suspension, this is the bearing of the front pillars, they can creak when running at 30 thousand km, the rest of the suspension consumables serve long enough. To the rear suspension, the owners have almost no complaints, it is able to go on our roads up to 200,000 kilometers. Two types of gearboxes, five-speed mechanics and a six-speed automatic are available on SkoM Rumster. As the experience of operation has shown, both boxes have proved to be sufficiently reliable, and very seldom disturb their owners.
Like most cars in this class, the finish is made from inexpensive materials:
