2014 SsangYong Rexton SX 2.0 turbo diesel
Perfection need not cost a fortune
Not a thing! Three years, 50,000 km, no worries.
What a bargain the Rexton W series is. I was one of the very first people in Australia to take delivery of the W when they were released in 2014. It has distinctive looks, is bolted together extremely well, rides nicely and is sufficiently powerful and extremely quiet. All in all a great all round package.
It spent its first 2 years traversing Adelaide through heavy traffic between home and work. The last year has seen it doing a daily 80km round trip on country roads to work and back.
My Rekkie has never missed a beat, traversing country roads in all weathers with the utmost confidence. I really do not understand why the brand is not more popular in Australia, as they really are a class act for a very small price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
