We love out korando ultimate deisel

published

We bought a new korando in july to replace our 10 year old MB b200cdi.
Our requirement was a new family car to occasionally carry tall adults and normal daily drive but occasional need as a tow car for a Swift Caravan.
Was nervous about the smaller motor but proved to be unnecessecary it pulls the van fine its comfortable and cruises happily and quietly at 100klm with 1400 kg behind.
The comfort is fantastic, it's not a sports car but the diesel has great fuel.economy. in fact I think ssangyang should plug the diesel more its so much cheaper to run better mpg more pulling power with fuel cheaper per litre.

Purchased in at Hunter valley motors for $40.60.

The car is simply well build!

published

Amazing car with lots of extras that we seemed to find everyday.
Protection for the neck when crashing, automatic hazard lights when braking hard.
The noise of the engine might be a problem for some people, it really didn't bother us and we travelled from Western Australia with a big trailer on the back (5500km).

Purchased in at Toyota Dealers for $6,999.

It is a good honest car

published

On long trips we get 7 to8 lt per 100k. The acceleration for a small diesel is good the suspension is the only thing that needs some work as there are no after market shocks the two rextons that we had were fitted koni shocks and were very good vehicles to drive.

The right to repair: which brands are making it easier for you to fix their products?

The right to repair movement in Australia is calling for companies to make it easier for their products to be repaired. Here are some electronics and appliance manufacturers who are starting to listen and make it more feasible for consumers to repair, rather than replace, their items.

So many problems

published

First year car was great. Then timing belt had to be replaced, which was done in about 2 weeks. Then check engine light came on, was told I needed a new battery, cost $370. Next day check engine light on again took 4hrs to diagnose that i now need a sensor which is about $250 + labour. OMG when will it end.

Purchased in for $20,000.

Timing chain went and done the head

published

Engine light came on - timing chain stretched and done the head. Over 6 weeks and still haven't got parts. Had to pay for hire car as car can't be driven. Loved the car until now - Sangyong need to have parts available if selling these vehicles in Australia. Problem not with the local service department. Problem is Sangyong!!!

I would recommend this car to anyone.

Excellent service from staff of Takanini Ssangyong.

published

My korando drives quite well but the 2.0 litre engine lacks the punch when taking off. Steering response is bit slow and handling on motorway speed needs extra caution. Seats are very comfortable. Enterior feels modern and soft touch areas makes the enterior more comfortable. Leg room at the back row with flat floor is an excellent point.
