By far the most reliable car I have owned

2005 2.7 ltr diesel owned since new and had for 15 years is by far the the most reliable car I ever owned .only let down is the lack of service /dealers knowledge & back up. Hence why have done services and all repairs myself .
Towed duel axle 19 foot caravan & off-road 4wding including doing the skytrek with ease.
Will be sad to let it go but only replacing as decided after 15 years of Trouble free motoring was time to upgrade to a new rexton ultimate

Would highly recommend to anybody. And a very under rated car. Show details

Great vehicle

I have owned this vehicle for over two years and have had no problems as yet, the power is great and the gearbox (auto) is smooth. I have installed airbag suspension as I tow a pop top camper van and the ride and economy is excellent. After driving a Nissan Patrol for several years, this vehicle is like driving a limo. Now in its tenth year and still going strong with no problems at all. If Ssangyong put sat nav and reverse cameras in as standard I would even consider upgrading to a new one.

Great car. Purchased new in 2006. Was 2005 badged. RX270XDi

Vehicle has done 150000km. Has been used as a comuter vehicle as well as beach work. Has not failed in any way. Very good on fuel. Purchase fuel filters from DELPHI distributor. Much cheaper than from SSangyong Dealer. Oil filter over the counter from parts specialist. My mate purchased 1 after my recommendation.
Powerful, fuel efficient real goer. Everything works.
Tyre size hard to find. Shocks leave a lot to be desired. Show details ·  1

300k update 9 years

I bought this car at a charity auction as there were no bids for it, initially there was a clutch and fuel gauge issue that was repaired promptly. Since then it has been a farm runabout with a lot of city work, hit 3 kangaroos and been momentarily under sea water, (big wave on the beach). The engine (2.9l diesel) has chugged along tirelessly. Fuel economy has been 8l/100km on long runs (95-100km/hr best economy) and tows 100km/h easily. Service every 20000km. Has been very reliable but as there is no resale or trade in value, I will try for 400k then take the $50 scrap value and try a Great Wall ute

OK

I am worried about resale value when i come to get rid of it next year. I would look at a new model but it would depend on what I was offered as a trade in.
I have liked owning and driving it.
The fuel gauge does not go back to full when you fill the tank(diesel). they tell me it is a common problem but don,t have a fix for it.

OK

If the parts were available locally and dealers had parts in stock the pain wouldn't have been so great. However, once one thing went wrong, it was down hill from there. Initially I was extremly happy with the prestige car on a peasants wage, but now it has cost more than that!
I appreciate greatly all the features that they advertise.
I have done 66000 klm's and have noted some minor issues which became major all over issues.Once one thing went other things followed suit. Add to this poor service from the dealer, Ian Parker.There was an 8 week turn around in waiting for parts from overseas and dealer error.

Excellent

Bought my car last year a 2005 320 for AUD29000.00 i am getting 12l/100 and are very happy , change of circumstances has meant i need a seven seater so thought i would trade. Dealers are offering me AUD13000.00 that is crap. Ssangyong need to do more to market this vehicle and to make it attractive to buyers new and used. They should have some obligation to protect their customers. I will be interested in what a ssangyoong dealer will offer me
love it great car to drive and has lots of features

Bad

Very comfortable, stylish, excellent on and off road driving, make sure the Dealership servicing the car knows what they are doing. Ssangyong Aust. Head Office (Sydney) did'nt want to know about it cause the warranty had run out..??
Value for New 4X4 vehicle, comfortable on and off road, spacious.
had the car for nearly 3 1/2 years 150000 km. when the lack of knowledge from Dealership stripped the threading of all 5 glow plugs, I was told $6500 to replace cylinder head, and would have to wait 6 weeks for delivery. I sent the head to local Mercedes workshop, and was repaired for $2100. So if ya want spares for any of Ssangyong vehicles be prepared to pay big bucks and have the car OFF the road for long period of time.

Hey I've got a 2004 rexton with a starting problem. Have to jump or aero start everytime even if it's been turned off for a second. Had the glow plugs and relay done, took it to ssangyong dealership, put their computer on it and nothing relevant to the problem comes up. Replaced the fuel pump and even tried one that auto pumps still nothing. Can't see any leaks or anything to make it lose fuel pressure. Anyone with the same problem or any ideas? Tia

Yeah mines a 270. Maybe it's a leak further down then coz everything closer to the top is fine. And yes perfect when running and the battery is new.
