Pleasantly surprised great ute.
Had many new Ute's from all brands and my 2022 gwm cannon X has been great with no issues. Takes a couple of weeks to get used to the way it works and suspension to settle in and just keeps getting better. I use it as a tradie so it carry 300kg in tools all the time and tows trailer and would definitely buy another one in the future.Show details
45000 kms later and very happy
Bought in 2022 May. Have had zero issues. DPF does its job and never had to do a manual burn. Very comfortable. Have not done any mods i.e all stock standard.Show details
We all make mistakes- This heap of garbage was mine.
Purchased this crap brand new on 7/2/23. It blew a turbo on 12/3/23 after approximately 1500K
Dealer no help whatsoever. Impossible to contact GWM head office. However, given the [Content Removed] they are selling I can understand their desire to be invisible!!
No one would listen when I advised that a failed turbo would likely lead to a failed motor. Guess what??? Picked up the allegedly repaired [Content Removed] cart and it blew a motor before it travelled another 400K. and needed the motor replaced
These things should be returned to China [Content Removed] making them.
Absolute garbage vehicle. Do not buy a GWM product if you don't want to spend the rest of your life trying to get the [Content Removed] to work as advertised.
Ups and downs
I've just clicked on 17,000kms from new and here's the honest opinion.
1. It's very comfortable and effortless to drive
2. Great features and inclusions
3. Handles well, reasonable turning circle
4. Great fuel economy
5. 7yr warranty with capped services
6. Good off road capability
Problem with earpain in a gwm cannon x ute
Hi I have a cannon x Bought late dec 2022
I have problems with low velocity sound comming from the mufler arear or pressure in the cabin
As soon as I start the car in idle or drive my ears start getting blocked
To the point where pain is created internal of my ears and also Pain at the back of my neck. After a while
It feels like blister Pain internaly
Of my ears. That can last up to a day after driving the car
When the car is in idle I can feel it
But when the car is doing high revs self clean dpf no issue's at all
I have done an audiologi test
Not driving and one driving this car

So far No Happy!!!
Only around 1500km on the clock and have some sort of gearbox issue.
Took it back to the Dealership and after having it for a couple of days, was informed that it was a faulty earth wire….
Wrong!!! Drove about 6km and it started again!!!
I had a loan car, and the transmission in it was smoother than mine and it picked up like mine in sports mode….
I think I might have a Lemon
Reasonably Priced Ute
- Utes are in stock
- Great pricing
- Look great with lots of features
- Haven't owned for long so will come back to you with reliability
- Clunky dash / settings - Cant change defaults and default settings suck, resets everytime you drive
- Spare key isnt a FOB with buttons, its a key
- Default 4x4 driving
Great Ute for the price
55,000 kms and still going strong. Awesome Ute for the priceShow details
Nice interior but infuriating driver nannies
Bought 11/21 with X-spec now 12800km in NZ
Haval people have no idea about what they are selling. I was told interior was resl Leather L- spec (8K cheaper) has Comfort-Tek Leather, whatever that is. Instead mine is cheap and nasty Leatherette. Not Leather. I put some decent wheels and tyres on mine and they did not even know stud pattern, offset, center bore etc so I could not pre-order these.
The driver aids cannot be turned off despite the dealer saying they can. I don't mean turning them off for every separate trip.
The constant tugging on t
I’ve purchased my Cannon X in October 2022 brand new and as of today Feb 2023 it’s gone back to the dealer in LANSVALE GWM HAVAL 8 times. All of which stayed there between 4-7 days each time.
Car front sensors were not working and the head Sales manager tells me ‘you need to put the car in Park then into drive for the sensors to work. Pathetic explanation. Eventually they place a newer program for it to work after I complained.Weather shields were loose and almost flew off. Car was retuned within a week of owning it.
A week later the car cou
Good Ute needs some refinement
I own 2 cannon X utes and find both of them to be reasonable quality. Not to say ther hasn’t been minor problems, which dealer hasn’t hesitated to fix .
I have found personally that after sales service is good and no worse than any other manufacturer.
I have own several different type of Ute brands, while I find it good I would say it is as good as say the new V6 ranger but I don’t feel that the ranger is 20 to 25 k better Ute and that saying something as I have been a for person until firs dropped falcon and started to up prices of ranger jus
Very Very Happy.
I'm a bricklayer and am extremely satisfied with my Cannon l. I know a few tradesmen who bought some big name utes and spent $15k more than me for similar or less specs. Only downside is some turbo lag. Couldn't be happier good work ute and good family ute. Vety Comfortable.Show details
Bought the Cannon X new in July, 2022. I have put 6,000 kms on it and no issues. Excellent value for money and the car does everything I need it to do. I have not yet used it to tow but had the dealer fit a tow bar.
Fuel economy I have been getting is around 10.5 litres per 100 kms around town. On the open road I get about 8.5. This is pretty good in my opinion. The often mentioned DPF issues are not an issue at all in my experience.
There are a lot of nice touches and electronic aids. The car is not perfect and a few minor gripes I have (not... Read more deal breakers) are as follows. A light in the glovebox would be handy, as would another interior light in the back passenger area. There is no grab handle for the driver to assist with entry and exit. The headlights are average to poor. All in all I am very happy and could have spent $20,000 or more extra on another brand. I have saved that money to invest or spend on other projects. If you’re in the market for a twin cab Ute, do yourself a favour and get a Cannon.
Far superior than vehiclesctrwice it’s price
60,000km in 18months and going strong
Tows 3 t van with ease
Questions & Answers
I am getting messages telling me the pedestrian safety assist is unavailable. What does this mean and what causes it?
Hey Guys,is there definitive time frame or klm for a DPF burn,when I first bought my Cannon it was Auto burning every couple of days(please not most of my driving is done is done in short bursts)then one long drive(approx 100klms it did 2 burns)then went for 2 weeks without a burn after which it did a manual burn,it has now since been a week and hasnt done a burn since,is the sporadic burn normal or am I just worrying about nothing and just get used to it
I have an intermittent problem when towing my caravan. The hazard lights come on when I break, it’s not every trip and sometimes corrects itself after a while but can easily start again.
My local dealer suggested deactivating the rear and side sensors.
Anybody have this issue? Did you resolve it? How do I deactivate the sensors?
