It's a brilliant if flawed vehicle. Great fun to drive - stops and turns on a dime in the wet. It's eager, put your foot down and it moves - loves to be driven aggressively. Bodywork is strong, you look under the bonnet and see the two gas struts that hold it up - that bonnet is rigid. Plenty of room in the boot. I like the interior - I don't mind the fake wood in plastic, I've electric windows, dove grey leather in a pale metallic green body. -speaking of which I love the overall design - it's jeep/lorry (as in volvo sugga) with all the corners streamlined. The only flaw - which is more major than you'd think - the passenger seat doesn't return to it's old position when you move it forward to let someone in the back - no you have to spend a minute re-adjusting it. -This isn't a fault but a design fault - I think they ran out of money at this point and said we'll sort that out later. I was in the outside overtaking lane on the m4 - had to brake sharply to avoid an accident, a rover 200 ran into the back of me and wrote itself off on my towbar. I had an insurance assessor who did a complete check on my chassis - no damage - they replaced the plastic bumper - it was a little misshapen.
This car has truly been a godsend. Its terrific value for money. I use mine for commercial and domestic purposes as well as a spot of caravaning and its never let me down. Every time i step into it, i feel great, the driving position is spot on as well as its fuel consumption. The car always brings a smile to my face! The only downside is that its not really that fast on acceleration but it more than makes up for it with everthing else.
A vastly under rated vehicle. If a DIY mechanic one of the easiest cars to work on that i have owned,parts available easily as long as you know it is a mercedes engine used in sprinter vans. Also a fantastic support network at owners club with various discounts available. Avoid dealer inflated prices and servicing and you will have a bargain vehicle.
You'd better take your money and burn it as this will give you more pleasure than owning a Korando or any SSangyong vehicle. My SSangyong/Daewoo has now blown the head gasket again and probly warped the head, the garage it was taken to have tried to find out the cost of a gasket set and was told by a local SSangyong dealer that he will try to but he'll have to phone Europe as England HQ are so USELESS, 3weeks now and no answer, so it’s now going for scrap.In short during it’s 7 years it's had two new stixs units, suspension problems, engine rebuilt at 20k, alternator, aircon pump, front pulley's as they just fell off, a fly wheel, head gaskets, two oil pressure switches, water pump, turbo charger, more light bulbs than Halfords, 15-20 fuses, prop shaft, electric window motor, indicator switch unit, this is just the things that I can remember, not to mention the 5 times it's been low loaded back to Daewoo, SSangyong Chevy dealers who don't give a CR*% about the customer.I had to take it back four times to one dealer because they had not touched my car when it had meant to have been serviced and broken parts replaced. I was lied to by three separate dealers that where told that I was now using them as the previous dealer/s had lied when they had said they had serviced my car. The servicing was so bad that I marked all the nuts/ serviceable parts with a green marker pen to see if they’d been moved /replaced as per the service schedule. So good riddance SSangyong forever.
