. Never again..

published

Performance on the low side.
Handles like a rocking chair
Noise reasonable
Finish is acceptable.
Interior is acceptable.
Reliability is good for travel to the corner shop. Running costs OK..
The vehicle is reasonable but the Service supplied by the Importers with Roadside call centre is hopeless they have no idea whatsovever. Availability of Spare Parts and price for same are shockers so make sure you dont breakdown too far away from home. Oh by the way forget the warranty and I think the National Service Manager is rude arrogant and indifferent.

brilliant/reliable tow car

published

we bought a 2006 rexton brand new and it has served us well for a family 7 seater and the car has towed 2.5 tons for many trips interstate and locally .Its now just ticked over 100.000kms and still strong ,still towing long distance .it is nearly due for a new clutch as expected working hard most of its life.
reliable ,efficient
some sensor trouble on glow plugs and parts sourcing

It's done it again

published

You guessed it, the clutch is broken again. 4 clutches in 27 months and only 24000klms. What is wrong with this car. I guess it is time to let it go and purchase an ozzie car. It looks good - a lovely car but nothing but problems with the clutch.
Goods looks
No warranty service - just a useless piece of paper

Love the car. Excellent all rounder.

Dobinsons in Queensland have a full range of shocks/springs for most SSangyong models. They work well on my musso

David, my rexton engine is not starting, when never I tend the key on ,I see the lock key sign on . What could be the problem? Can the diesel filter cause that?

If the lock key sign is on, then the transmitter in your key is either missing or has been wiped. You will need to get it to a dealer and get the key reprogrammed. If you have a spare key, try using that.

Rexton Y200 II / Y285 II RX270 Automatic (2008-2012)

In The last 5 years by SsangYong rexton has had it's fan belt either partially or fully wrapped up in the motor. last Friday week they just replaced my fan belt and also a couple of the small flywheels one was very flaky and the other was really rough on one edge I think they've replaced it with a smoother one. Is 1 meant to be really rough on the edge? And last Tuesday part of the fan belt was chewed up again. Do you have any solutions to this problem?thank you.

I had similar issues, replaced belt and again within a week it shredded turned out to be the belt tensioner once this was replaced problem fixed you can get new one for about $350 fitted yourself or about double that if you have a mechanic do it.
