2012 Chery Tiggo TX 1.6 from South Africa
A great car at the right price
Cat converter at 50 000.
What a lovely car.
Apart from normal servicing, I did not spend R500 in 100 000 km. That was for removing the cat converter at 50 000 km. The door rubber kept on coming loose, but that was solved with a bit of Bostick.
Tires were replaced at 100 000 km with slightly smaller ones (225/60/16), which made the car a lot nicer to drive, and you can drive around in 5th gear, where you previously had to change down to 4th or 3rd. I can strongly advise owners to consider this change in tire size. It is much quicker and has better fuel consumption as well. It is also much easier to pull away with the air con on.
Service from the dealer was pathetic to say the least, and I decided to do the servicing myself.
It is basically a Toyota RAV of 3 models back. It uses a lot of RAV4 spares.
Ride quality is a bit hard, but bringing the tire pressures down to 1.8 bar sorted that.
I would buy another one without thinking twice.
Any enquiries about the tire changes can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Lovely car, but the dealer here in Egypt doesn't care about his client, so the customer service is a disaster. I love my car, but it has many faults.

Hi, I seem to be experiencing the same problem of the catalytic converter giving in at 51,000km. Where can I have this part removed, and what sort of cost can I expect it to be?? I live in Durban, KZN. Thanks.
