1996 SsangYong Musso Silkroad 3.2 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Great 4wd for the price, if you can get a good one
The engine is noisy under heavy acceleration, and does not give as much power or as accelerate as smooth as expected.
The handbrake does not work.
The interior blower fan is noisy; sounds like it has leaves in it.
Cracks are appearing on the instrument cluster plastic cover.
Would not turnover/start 2 times after short stops. Suspect the gearbox inhibitor switch; started after a few minutes.
When driving in deep, soft sand uphill for 5-6 minutes, it started to heat up, but turning on the heater cooled it down again, so suspect it just needs a radiator flush.
Paint is starting to fade on the bonnet.
Recently purchased from auction for a 1000km 4wd camping trip. The car was great and handled the trip well. I have listed every problem, however they were not major issues for a car this old. Everything works, and the car is still very tidy, and solid.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
