Excellent value

We bought our elx 6 mths. It's soo quiet. We wanted it to tow up to 2750 kgs.
It has all the tow kit on it including rear air bags . Awesome value, we love it, the only thing we are adding is side steps. We do admit we would prefer if it had gps but that's being picky. Show details

Looks good

I've been looking at the Rexton as a vehicle update. What I've found is the vehicle appears to be on the money and a vast improvement on previous models. Worth considering. Show details

Great value for money

I have been happy with my purchase, great quality and no issues so far!
I love the interior, the only annoyance is I feel like the infotainment is angled wrong an can be hard to see in the light. Show details

Very happy

Quiet drive, smooth transmission and good towing ability. Can tow 3.5 tonnes with a whopping payload of 460Kg's compared to a more expensive SUV with a payload of 400Kg's and an even more expensive SUV (that's considered the best in this class) with a payload of a modest 258Kg's. We owned a Ssangyong Korando a few years ago and loved it but we bought a bigger van and needed to have a vehicle that could tow it. The Rexton does it with ease and we looking forward to many trips in the future. We use the car daily. Show details

Great Car and good build quality

Great build quality, has everything you need. Very quiet inside, surprisingly so. Strikes decent balance on and off road. Not hardcore off roader but can keep up other reputable 4wd with light to medium off roading whilst quite comfortable getting around town. Its not perfect but overall I really really like the car and enjoying it! Show details

Great value for money, a smooth and comfortable ride for our family of 5!

We love our 2022 Rexton Ultimate, purchased in March 2022. In terms of value, it’s unbeatable really. A large 7 seater with all the fancy features you’d love to have, it ticked every box for us back in 2022, a year and a bit later.. it’s still fantastic. Easy to clean and hasn’t missed a beat.
I will admit we were hesitant to purchase a SsangYong, but the 7 year warranty was the deal maker for us in the end ☺️ Show details

Good car over all comfortable, handles well and good on fuel. Only problem we have had is from the dealership itself damaging the vehicle and power steering issues, power steering pump has been replaced and still not fixed the issue possibly the rack needing replacement.

Engine failed

After a month I've purchased my car Rexton Ultimate for two times engine is failed when I was driving the car uphill. I will call the service centre tomorrow but am very disappointed when I paid $57k cash and now I feel this is a used car. Show details

Great vehicle which exceeds expectations

I test drove the Rexton, only to satisfy myself I’d look at all alternatives before I purchased a second Isuzu. I expected (almost wanted) to hate it, but I immediately liked the vehicle. I purchased with many reservations, but a couple of years into ownership, with lots of kms’s, some towing and heavy use, I still love it. It’s a great vehicle and at this stage, probably the best of all the vehicles we’ve owned. Show details

Lack of after sale service

I have a Rexton ELX 2018 - love the car, the ride, towing ability etc.
But when the rear lefthand shocker leaked oil, I sent the photo to my closest Ssangyong service centre (2 hrs away) who refused to order new parts unless the vehicle was seen onsite. So I opted to use my local authorised garage (10 minutes away), who ordered the replacement via Ssangyong Sydney... that was three months ago - they're still waiting, I'm still waiting, still driving an unroadworthy car... and we still have no word from Ssangyong Sydney as to when it will arrive. Show details

Son V. · Rexton Y200 II / Y285 II RX270 Sports Automatic (2006-2008)

I have a 2007 SsangYong Rexton RX270 Sports Auto 4x4 MY07. There is a periodic issue where the amber 4WD low and red 4WD check lights illuminate on dash and the car won't shift out of low gear. The only solution is to turn ignition on and off again until it chooses to shift into normal gear (with no error lights). It mostly happens when the weather temperature is hot.

Anyone solved the C300 head unit reboot issue? Put ours in to be fixed and the whole system crashed so they replaced the whole head unit, only to find the car now shows on an angle on screen (skewed to the right) for the reversing cameras (makes reversing anywhere very confusing). Also the C300 reboot still intermittent issue. Getting nowhere with Ssangyong on fixing it and have gone silent. Have the Y400 Ultimate 2023
