2008 Chery Tiggo 1.6 petrol from South Africa


Good value if there was back up service


Speedo faulty.

Stiff gear change.

RUST all over.

Rear wheel bearing.

Front universals.

General Comments:

Great value until things go wrong. Parts are very expensive, and not usually available; been waiting 3 months for discs (front) 292 mm.

Rust all over; been fixed twice by agents (correction they sent it to a local paint shop). They're now passing the buck; bonnet, bottom of the front doors, sills all doors, top of rear left door. Anybody know what the rust guarantee is (in years)? The local dealer can't tell me. Says they have not sold any in ages??

Wiring harness shorts to injector rail, causes missing.

Cheap plastic petrol pipes fall off, replaced with metal. They tend to hook on sticks etc.

Spares in our town are very expensive. I can buy in Durban at half the price.

Resale value is horrific.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
