AvtoVAZ published an article in which he said that the mechanical gearbox has not slowed down in development and continues to improve along with the machine.
The article tells that in recent years the VAZ manual transmission has been significantly improved and brought to perfection.
Some of the achievements of the plant are listed below:
- the introduction of a cable drive and a new shifting mechanism that does not require adjustments has improved the clarity of gear shifting and improved the quality of the transmission;
- a set of works developed jointly with partners in the Renault-Nissan alliance helped to reduce the level of noise and vibration;
- the shift mechanism was not only updated, but also moved from the oil bath at the bottom of the box to the top, where it is lubricated in oil mist, which not only eliminated tight shifts in cold weather, but also significantly reduced oil consumption, as well as minimizing the risk of leakage.
At AvtoVAZ, they note that they have done a lot of work so that the mechanical transmission is as modern and efficient as the automatic one. The company believes that they succeeded.
Previously, AvtoVAZ called manual transmission and talked about the advantages of this box over automatic transmission.
