1. Because their suspension is horrible for a country in Eastern Europe. I'm a bit overweight person and I don't like when my belly is shaking all the time inside and my guts become sausages. And when I'm finding myself around the third door I have the felling that there is an earthquake.
2. Their design is not just ugly. It's mega-hyper-ultra-super-duper ugly. All these sharp edges, the taillights from a truck, more over they have been put in the building process, not by "BurgasBus". Everything has a square shape except the wheels and the you-know-what of the driver.
3. I hate low-floor buses as whole. All that feeling that something's missing. In Bulgaria we use the expression "to climb in the bus", which just has no sense if we talk about a low-floor bus, because you just get in. And I'm not old enough for this kind of bus.
4. Our pieces come in Burgas already vandalised. I'm sick and tired of buses with so scratched with sharp objects glasses, that you can rather see through them. The seats are torn and covered with dumb writings, which incite the vandals in Burgas to proceed with the vandalising.
The only thing I like about them are the doors and the power and the sound of the engine. But most of the drivers, who drive MAN buses here drive with 30 km/h, so that nothing happens to the "precious" buses. So what? The buses fill up their capacity and overload. Now the slowest MAN NG has a terrible hump due to overloading with passengers in result of slow driving every day.
And I ask myself the question: "What do these buses have that Ikarus 280 doesn't, except the heating?" I mean they are the same discomfortable buses, but noone tries to convince me that the Ikarus is a modern and comfortable bus just because of the low floor. If BurgasBus modernises all the Chavdar 141 and 120 buses (including the so needed low floor), we'll have much more beautiful and comfortable buses than MAN NG and NL, and what's more they'll be Bulgarian. Bt no - we scrap these buses, which are newer than all other buses possessed by BurgasBus except the 2 Conectos. They even haven't passed through a maximum overhaul. But even in this critical shape I think they're cosier than the German coffins. But all said is just my opinion, I guess I'm from the few, who think like that.
