2010 Chery Tiggo TXE 2.0 from South Africa
All that glitters is not gold
BE CAREFUL WHEN BUYING A CHERY, you might incur a lot of expense and no help.
When we took delivery of the automobile, we noticed that the transmission took 15 seconds before it kicked into reverse.
Sent the car back to dealer, 2 MONTHS LATER. Dealer's report said that the gearbox must be replaced. This car's warranty only expired in March 2013. Chery S.A. feels that car is out of warranty, so it is not their problem.
VERY SCARY THAT AN AUTOMATIC GEARBOX ONLY LASTED 30 000km.
Should Chery not be concerned with such bad reviews?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Still waiting for the car.
This is now late October. Emailed everybody from Cherry S A to China. The dealership that we bought the Chery Tiggo from have now changed our car for a reliable good old VW Polo.
My advice. LEAVE CHERY alone.

I have my Chery for about 5 months - and now I'm also experiencing the gearbox problem. When I stop at a stop light, as soon as I push the accelerator, my car runs BACK for about 2 meters...
I stay in quite a remote place and no one can FIND the place to change the transmission oil. Could someone please assist??? Would be much appreciated (no warning light on my dash board).

Wish I had read this before I bought my Chery.
I bought my 2009 model in May 2012, and now the gearbox is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Can anybody help with advice – what do I do now – where can I find a second-hand automatic gearbox?
Just my luck that I bought the car just after the warranty expired, and I never took the extra insurance.
Any help would be so much appreciated.
