2000 Daewoo Musso 2.3 from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Well worth the money, hugely underrated

Faults:

Nothing at all - car has been regularly serviced, but has yet to develop any serious problems.

Has had new tires, brake pads etc, but all standard wear and tear issues.

General Comments:

The 2.3 is not the fastest 4x4 around, but it is spacious, comfortable, easy to drive and very reliable.

It corners well (rear passengers aren't thrown around), is a high spec for the money and is really a very good vehicle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is a large, tall, heavy 4x4 with an average engine not an F1 car.. you should try driving a 2.4 petrol LWB frontera, now theres a life threatening ;)

I have an 02 2.9 TD Musso as a work vehicle, and it's a tank!

Faults? None.

Spares required? None.

Had tyres, brake pads, lots of oil changes and lots of diesel.

Men I work with mostly have Pajeros (soft, troublesome and slow by comparison). Any time they get in with me, they can't believe how rapid it is and how good it pulls a heavy trailer. I hope people keep slating the Musso's, as it means I can keep quietly plugging along under the radar in mine. I've had Landcruisers, Fourtraks and Land Rovers in the past. I'll keep the Musso.

BTW, every mechanic and MOT tester I know says the same - "great engine in them Mussso jeeps".
