I am considering buying the Rexton Ultimate 2024 and i would like to know how they handle a 19 to 20 foot caravan.

Personally I wouldn't tow a van over 2700kg with a Rexton. I think the 3500 kg is a big ask for the size of the motor and tranmission. 19/20 is not an issue as long as the weight is around the 2700kg mark. I'm a diesel mechanic by trade and a bit old school, so some might say my opinion is a bit conservative. Tread your own path. Cheers

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

2023 Rexton. Only 2970 klm. And has to have the steering rack and pump replaced. I know it’s under warranty but this should happen on a brand new car hey.???

HI all, I am curious if anyone is towing a 2.5tonne caravan with the current model Rexton. My concern is, will the 2.2L engine handle the load up hills etc. Our current vehicle is a 3L engine.

Many buy the Rexton due to the 3.5t tow capacity, myself included. You will find on paper the specs appear lower than some competitors but in reality the engine/gearbox combination makes up for it. Great tow vehicle, you will have no problems on hills.

Hi, I purchased Rexton last year in July 2022 (9months old), 2 months later I started to notice a slight ticking noise form the tailgate which over time now has increased to a bit of rattle + popping/thigging noise and appears on uneven surface when car flexes and on sharp turns and round abouts, I took this to the dealership twice and was told that the "car is flexing" ?!!!- never heard this in my entire life as I'm 48year old and have owned several SUV's.

Any one experience this annoying noise then please share this so we can refer to SsangYong to fix.

Couple of days ago, I washed my car and realized that the tailgate is not aligned properly as I could see clearly that there's more Gap on left side of the tailgate then the other side and apparently the gate is leaning more on one side (driver side) possibly causing stress on the hinges or on some other parts and creating all sort of noises?? not sure.

it 's definitely a Manufacturer Fault.

if any one can assist with this please?

Many Thanks in advance.

The Sanyong Rexton 2022-2023 I like this car. I live in Taiwan, But a few users of this brand. Any problem on this car looks like a build-like tank. May have your opinion from an old and new user of Rexton 2021-2023?
