AvtoVAZ Brake Warning

AvtoVAZ said Saturday that it discovered brake malfunction in some of its models, and 11,700 of its Lada Kalina, Lada Priora and Lada 4X4 cars will need to be checked for it.

Dealers and car owners have been notified of the possible flaw, the carmaker said in a statement. The cars will be checked and defective parts replaced if needed, it said.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
