I have a very good experience with Lada's cars, so read it carefully before thinking to buy it.
Lada (Samara) is produced in Russia, Samara city.
Lada 2110 is a new one and is made using modern technologies. I can recommend it as a good, cheap and fast car.
****Good**** What means good, it is nice inside as an outside. With all general facilities: electro glass regulation, and so on. Unfortunately there is no airbag, cruise control and abs. I am not very sure, hope some more luxury models have all mentioned, but I had a general one. Shape of a car is very nice, has different colours that changes on the sun (chameleon).
*****Cheap**** Approximate cost of general complexion car in Russia is £2000-3000, however, prices different for UK. Also it is very cheap in service.
***** Fast***** As this car is not very heavy (no more than 1500kg) and has a good 1,5L engine it runs fast (220 km/h speed limit) and very easy to drive. My experience told me that it is no worst than many European cars
Unfortunately I want to point some disadvantages of this car. As soon as the car was bought we had some problems with it. On the third day on of the tubes, that is used for chilling the engine (sorry for my English, hope you understand what I mean) was broken. So It is a disease of the car, coz when we came to service workers told us that it is the 4-th car for this week with the same problem. I recommend to change that tube as soon as the car was bought.
As for my own opinion. This model of car is nice, generally reliable and CHEAP. But I would better prefer to buy second hand German BMW or Audi.
I have a skoda at the minute, but my mum use to own one of these cars. it was always very reliable for her. Georgina.

Some very useful points there especially about the cooling tube problems Lada's are prone to. I just found one or two parts a little difficult to understand you say it "engine it runs fast (220 limit)" I assume this is the speed in kilometers? Some idea of cost of car and how old it is and fuel consumption, drive and handling may be useful here incase you ever think of adding to this in future. (P.S. What is your first language?)
