A carbon filter in the system of ventilation. Believe motorists, this decision creators, most likely, have adopted is to increase the resistance to flow, while increasing the capacity of the system. This leads to the fact that the ventilation system is not such a noisy even at the minimum functioning.

Washer, rear and windscreen is radial, that is such a saying experienced owners, as for the first tens. There and mode of operation with pause regulated character. But no rain sensor in one of the outfits.

Let us dwell more on some characteristics of the salon, which speak of our compatriots.

Steering wheel finished with a soft material, has a sufficient number on the reverse relative to the driver's side of depressions and other elements, which is why the fingers so conveniently located. Motorists stressed that the wheel can and понастальгировать a: it seems that you are behind the wheel of Muscovites and the first Zhiguli.

Dashboard fulfilled in the retro style. All elements of the round, located symmetrically in relation to each other, arrows sectors are well marked, not intersect each other. As they say owners, it's something like an old calculators Soviet era. In their opinion, is a definite plus panel is that all information perceived excellent, even if the sun is very active and many rays falling on a car.

 Jeep liberty Luggage compartment

Seat, to increase the volume of the Luggage, formed a very unusual: something like ремешковых loops that need to pull in beauty.
