Great wall x240
Hi I have a great wall x240 2011 4wd light staying on an doesn't sound like it's engaging at all need help please would be greatly appreciated thanks any help
Money pit of issues
This car has cost me more in repairs then it cost me to buy. And still it’s still not working properly. It’s forever going into Limp mode even with it being fully serviced and after 1 light trip of 4x4 driving it blew the turbo.
Radio forever staticy and usb plug doesn’t work, inside cigarette lighter Came apart so now doesn’t work.
The car looks great but like most things in China it’s a piece of garbage.
Purchased in January 2018 for $13,500.00.
Great wall is just that great
Love it. Had it from new. Just replaced the tyres from at 120,000 km. Great family car and I live rural so can take out on farm. When I need to replace it will look at something the same, use it all the time to travel to work. Get service when I remember
I'm surprised by how much I like this truck.
This is mostly used for commuting and personal transport. I'm loving the Automatic everything. Headlights, wipers, windows, reverse camera, bluetooth connection for phone, Aux attachment for my iPod, leather interior, CC A/C, heavily tinted windows and large rear view mirrors.
The diesel has plenty of punch once rolling but is a little slow off the mark. A common complaint but with cheap and easy fix available via the internet.
The rear seats don't fold flat but the boot has a rubber mat and tie down hooks.
Great Value SUV Great Wall Turbo Diesel X200 Built DEC12
Purchased a DEC12 Built Great Wall SUV X200 2L Diesel. First on Road May13 65,500KM & appeared to be serviced well. Viewing the Great Wall reviews on web which indicated typical issues with this later model ie No problems to date except under warranty Rear Sensors which were not working had a few loose wires & small tailgate switch stopped working so need to climb in back to open. Fixed under warranty. For value paid well worth it; good options are leather seats, rear vision mirror auto dims rear lights & tyre pressure sensors as required.
Drove my car yesterday for a couple of hours stopped and then it wouldn't start engine light was flashing and we pushed my car out of way then it started and hasn't missed do you know why? Please help me as I don't want to send to a mechanic and get charged heaps
I purchased a used 2011 X240 and for the price I find it pretty good quality.
DRIVING EXPERIENCE: The Mitsubishi sourced 2.4L 4 cylinder engine is gutless at start but maintains a good highway pace. Steering handling is tight and responsive. Others have said that it is difficult to shift gears. I find it OK - you do not have to guide the stick, except for the hard shift into reverse. Overall vision is good, blind spots are typical for this size vehicle, but the reverse camera makes life easier when reversing.
THE INTERIOR: The leather...
Great Wall x240
If you are thinking about buying one stop now it’s not worth a cent have issues with just about everything single item on the car except for the engine itself (lucky for now I guess)
Steering stitches poor
Paint quality poor
Electric seat broke had to replace motor
Headlights and tail lights protective coating peeled off had to replace twice
Gear stick replaced thrice
Radio antenna crap
I bought mid year 2012 and stuck with this junk for life I’ve been it’s like herpies
Arrg this car drives me insane but who would buy it of us?
Radio is absolutely worthless as no reception, reverse camera don't give you a clear view in majority of situations, auto lock can accidentally lock kids in car during hot day and would threaten their lives, the aircon is only in the front and not actually cooling down much at all despite being topped up with the gas and circulates super poorly and not all around like the Kia Carnival for instance where the kids actually don't get overheated on a hot day here in Aus. Seats are comfortable, however seatbelts jam all the time creating huge fuss ...with the kids who will have a proper meltdown and you'll need to pullover frequently to correct this if your kids like ours actually aren't mannequins from a shop window placed in a car seat. So far we've bought it for about $6000 from a car dealership and within 3 months of buying it not having even gone 100 000km our battery needed replacing costing us a whopping $400, then a month and a bit ago the gearbox and a few other bits adding a bill of $1900 recently and I am afraid what the service will say once it's been property checked over OMG and let's not even start talking about the paint job of this Vehicle, it's actually so thin it's already rusted in small dots over the hood and peel off the rear side doors, simply put not enough paint job, so cheap as car - cheap as but cool gadgets not sure if it's worth all this hazzle as we didn't expect this car to read down less than a year after we bought it and had to be towed about 3-4 times now..... yes I'm not a happy mum however online on the tests it seemed to actually do brilliantly in 4WD... so that I haven't trie yet...running costs are actually more than you'd expect of a manual car of this size, legroom is ok if you're 170cm tall or below however dashboard is high up and restrict my vision but cool that the seat is remote controlled, interior the "leather" wears off quickly in te heat no doubt as it cracks when just touching it and that's with taking care of it like a baby giving it polish etc. I guess this is for families who want a cheaper but bigger car however I think a Holden Commodore or Kia Carnival or even a Volvo Wagon would last longer with less maintenance issues.
have oil leak an is it normal for turbo to whistle had it serviced then I discoved the oil leak machanic said it maybe the rear back seal ,some days it dosent leak an when I check the dip stick it shows its full im at a loss what to do can you advise me.
Dont buy unless you want to pay big $ in repairs
Warning, stay away. Had our X240 from 65K to now 150K. never been off road and serviced by the book. The list of monthly repairs goes on and on. Repairs to keep it going have cost 8k so far, and now we find out another $1,500 to fix up the engine management system. This model is now selling for around 3 to 4 K, so to put another 1k into repairs is just not good sense. just a quick snap shot of what went wrong....this is not the full list.....rear diff blew, rear tail gate door handle x 2, door opening cables x 5, electric window motor switches ...x 6, numerous electrical faults and false alarms, 4wd system does not/has never engaged, electric seats randomly move to odd positions, engine control system/computer misfunctioning, various lights blow or blown, gearbox has never been able to change gears without coersion, just stay away, and btw, fuel consumption is not good.
Any idea of what kind of shifter assembly i can attach to my x240 great wall? I want to replace the old one cause theres too much play and its very loose. I can find a diagram of how it looks and i want to install a short throw shifter.
its my baby
i enjoy driving my X240 drove it from Perth to Sydney no problems
the interior is ok dashboard is easy to read and plenty of leg room
it always starts first go i find the running cost are good it depends on how you drive its the same for any car
Just nope !
Bought an X240 with only 70k on clock thinking it would be less problems then a known brand with over 300k on the clock as I only had a 5grand budget , boy was I wrong
4x4 switch wouldn't work
Faulty central locking
Radio volume wouldn't work
Power surge in engine , absolute no power on take off due to this surge
Wouldn't ever buy another one
great family car on a budget
we got an x200 had it converted to a 7 seater for no extra cost.
have had it 4 yrs and have not had a single problem.
drove it from brisbane to tasminia and back fully loaded love it.
sales team were fantastic drives great often stopped by peopl to ask what its like great buy.
Questions & Answers
Hello, I have a 2013 Diesel with Turbo issues (very low power, I have been told there are two Turbos that fit this model, is that correct and how do I select the correct one?
