The test-driver of "Communard" Skidanenko A.V. has driven along the building of Cabinet Council USSR with Khrushchev N. S., turned on Ivanovsky square and drove back. The chairman of Cabinet Council USSR said that «Zaporozhets» would be good present for the working population (classes), and that the only thing would be necessary$1 affordable (accessible) price of that car. So, the price was affirmed at the rate of 18 (eighteen) thousand of rubles (it was old measure of price at that time). But the output of that car was not too large. Zaz-965 and Zaz-965 A recommended itself as very firm and unpretentious cars. Those cars had not bad passing ability because of smooth bottom side (underbody) and good loading of running wheel (60 % from gross vehicle weight (GVW)). But the buyers had some unfavorable criticism concerning the small car trunk (0, 1 cu.m.), bad dynamic of speedup, high-level engine noise, doors with back hinges, and tight salon.
