2007 Chery QQ TXE 1.1
My alternator malfunctioned after 10000 km, and the dealer refused to replace it free of charge.
Airbag light stays on. The dealership can't find the problem. I gave up asking to repair it after four years. I doubt the airbag even works now.
The seats broke twice. The dealer replaced it. I had to wait twelve months per chair, and on top of that the chair was the wrong size.
The air conditioner control unit malfunctioned after 6 months of purchase.
I have a book of the list of problems that I got within the first year of ownership, amounting to over 30 000 Rand. The car is definitely not worth what I paid for it. I can't even sell it, as the resale value of the car is less than 25% of what I still owe on the car.
This is the worst car ever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree with you 100%. My fiancé has one and it's the biggest piece of crap.
Spark plug leads just break out of nowhere.
Dashboard caved in and crumpled up.
Interior plastics crack and fall off. Everything rattles.
Shifting gears is harsh and clunky.
Shocks are shot. Handling is terrible.
Front headlights fog up.
Yesterday the alternator packed up.
All of this and more, and the car's got a full service history with Chery. We are trying to sell the car, but it's worth 25% less than what we owe on it.
I WILL NEVER AGAIN BUY A CHERY OR RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!
