2010 Chery Tiggo LXE 2 liter from South Africa
If only Chery had a dependable after sales service it would be OK
1. Cutout while driving; needed to pump accelerator; replaced petrol pump.
2. Master cylinder replaced.
3. Oil pump broke. No warning light of oil pressure came on. Replaced all engine engine parts. Complete engine rebuild.
4. Cam position sensor replaced.
Biggest problem is parts not available for Chery models as they withdrew from SA and left all owners in the lurch. Chery SA will take orders on prepaid and parts are delivered in +/- 40 to 60 days. No customer support from Chery. Fortunately other suppliers stock majority parts (MPD). Chery are now back in the country, but trade in values are almost nil. Dealerships not very helpful on servicing older models. I hope with new models Chery SA will be more loyal to their customers.
