2010 Chery QQ3 LX 0.8 petrol from South Africa
Wish it had more power and a bit bigger boot, but all round economical and easy to drive
Speedometer jumped and did not pick up kms. Had to replace speedo sensor. Still did jump little bit and then did not pick up kms. Auto electrician found a loose earth. Put in a new earth wire. Problem solved.
Lower control arm bushes were shot and had to be replaced.
Starter had to be replaced.
Keyfob likes to give trouble. Had to be repaired a few times.
Nice to drive in town.
Bit slow but has good third and fourth gear.
Battle to keep power when driving hills.
Like the comfortable seats.
Feels bigger on inside than what it is.
Steers very good.
For long road it even does 130 km/h.
Aircon is excellent.
Long distance drive gets as much as 17 kms to a litre.
In town drive it is like on 10 litres I can do 150 km.
Very short 1st gear.
When doing long distance, it tires me out especially with hills as I have to concentrate on the speed lessening and when to go to third just to make the top of the hill.
Going uphill in third is the best and the 3 cylinder is rev happy... 5000 rpm is no problem.
Parts are available and like the service parts like cambelt and tensioner are over 6 times less than my previous car.
The car drives easy.
Just do not like the sound; it emanates like a loose plate by the exhaust, but no one can trace the origin of it.
Hooter is funny... sounds like a 150cc motorbike hooter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
