Operating cost

Although the new UAZ Farmer price is quite affordable even for beginners of small entrepreneurs, all do the math, how much is totaly out the operational period of a machine, for example, in the first two years, if you are thinking of buying a new car. The calculation will take, in addition to the value of the vehicle, fuel expenses, insurance, transport tax, maintenance and purchase of winter tires.

1.    the Price of the machine. Recommended Ulyanovsk automobile plant on UAZ Farmer price 2013 – 487 thousand rubles, while the cars produced in 2012, you can get a discount in the 30000 roubles – as a result, last year's model will be released in 457 thousand rubles.

2.    Fuel costs. We rely on intensive operation of the machine and take a tentative millage over the next couple of years, 60,000 km, and the cost of used 92-octane gasoline will assume 27 rubles per liter. Calculate costs will, based on their officially declared fuel consumption, although in real terms, of course, these figures will be higher. So, our 60 thousand kilometers, according to the declared cost 15.4 liters per 100 km, the car needs 9240 liters of petrol. Amplifying their 27, get a considerable sum in 249480 rubles, that is more than half the value of the "Farmer". If not go to so much, say, 40000 km for a couple of years, the total gasoline will need 6160 litres, and the total cost of $ 166320 roubles – looks like it's still quite significantly, but much less than the first indicator of the cost.

3.    Mandatory insurance fee. The insurance policy for 1 year will cost the driver older than 22 years of age and driving experience of more than 3 years 4277 rubles if such seniority is still no – 7270 rubles. For the current biennium, these amounts, respectively doubled – 8554 ruble or 14540 rubles. We note that in different territorial subjects of the estimated cost of the compulsory insurance policy may slightly vary within 10% of the amounts.

4.    the Tax on technical means. Annual vehicle tax on Farmer will 4480 rubles, therefore, for all of the current biennium – 2 times more – 8960 rubles.

5.    the Passage. At design during mileage 60 000 km vehicle will undergo scheduled maintenance four times. If you have to use the services of the official dealer with a minimum of required spare parts, the total value of these THE amount of 25000 rubles.

6.    Winter set of tires. Acquisition of winter version rubber involves the selection of the tire producer, and their quality. Focusing on the budgetary category of spare parts and taking the approximate cost of tires 4,000 roubles manufacturers such as Cordiant or Kama, we can conclude that for UAZ Farmer price of tires on all four wheels will be about 16 thousand roubles.

The total cost of operation of UAZ 39094 for the first two years of work by summing up all of the resulting prices and several will vary – mainly because of possible mileage mileage and age with the experience of the driver in insurance. Thus, operation of the machine with 60 thousand mileage with a driver whose experience of driving less than three years, cost, excluding the cost of the car in the total amount of 314 thousand rubles, where the main item of expenditure – the cost of gasoline. Buying the same Farmer 2013 issue together with the operation under such conditions will just 801000 rubles. If to take for calculating mileage 40 thousand kilometers and an experienced driver, use УАЗом will cost in the 225 thousand. With the purchase of the same car this amount grows to 712000 rubles, of which more 30000 you can save money by buying in a motor show, car 2012 model year.

At the same time, this machine is pleased road in operation: the cost of using it is comparable with similar costs on foreign SUV, whose price is several times higher. Meanwhile, small businesses and entrepreneurship in rural areas, it should not become a barrier to the purchase, as this amount does not need to upload all at once, and it's quite reasonable to produce spending a regular basis throughout the period of operation, that is not so will hit the pocket of farmers.
