I bought my Niva second hand in 2ooo from a old chap who had really looked after it since new(1991).I had some rust repairs done(new metal)& i fitted a electronic rust control unit(ERPS),no more rust in 13 years.It has a 1.6 LT engine & has been very reliable.It has been great offroad & have only been stopped once in really churned up dry sand but i reversed out no trouble.I do all repairs myself,that's the beauty of a niva they are pretty simple to work on.Keep up with oil changes new filters & adjust the timing chain now & then & make sure to drain & flush the cooling system & add good quality inhibiter.New parts are still easy to come by here in Australia.The Niva is a great little offroader & can take a lot of punishment & still be ready for more the next day.
