Summary:

Absolutely Outstanding Value for money!!

Faults:

There are no major problems with the car, The outer door trims were loose when I bought the car, I took them off and re-attached them with new adhesive.

General Comments:

You get a lot of car for little cash!!

This car is as good as a Range Rover for Less that half the price.

There is Loads for room inside for passengers, A huge boot and the car looks great from the outside.

I had the (non Turbo) 2.9 Diesel which is slightly under powered, but you not supposed to race Cosworth's in it!

When I sold my Musso I really Regretted it. I will get another one soon.

The Musso handles like a Car rather than a 4X4,it was a pleasure to drive,

It was excelent off road too but you do have to be careful because for a 4X4 the Musso does have a low ground clearance.

To sum it up it is the best car that I have ever owned and I was really sorry when I sold it, As I have already said I am going to buy another one!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It seems that the Musso is relatively a good vehicle to own. I am thinking of owning one myself, but can someone please! inform the spares suppliers (manufacturers) to ensure availability of spare parts when needed!!

I have owned a 2002 Musso turbo diesel (auto) for the last month. The car is 12 months old and covered 20,000 miles now. All the comments regarding comfort, toys & gadgets in the reviews are correct. I am averaging 28mpg around town.

Looking forward to fitting a towbar and taking our touring caravan out in the early spring!

I have some peice of mind due to 2 years transferred warranty left to go!!

Summary:

Slow but reliable

Faults:

Paint stripping on the bumpers - replaced by main dealer.

Seat belt fails.

ABS failed.

General Comments:

A large 4WD with depreciation to match!

Slow off the blocks and unhappy at motorway speeds, handles like a elephant, limited off road ability, however - this is a very reliable car - thanks to the Merc engine and running gear. If you accept its limitations, you will find it more than satisfactory.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Summary:

A big 4x4 at a bargain price

Faults:

Nothing whilst I have owned it, but I have had to have the brakes and discs renewed at the cheapest price I could I find £699.60.

General Comments:

Big, comfortable, quite economical - 32mpg.

Used as a tow car for my 20ft caravan. No problems.

Gobbles up everything we throw in it. A friend had a ride in mine and went and bought a new one.

Now made by Daewoo.
