2003 SsangYong Musso 3.2 from Iran
An absolute disaster
The break system is extremely poor.
Fuel consumption is very high.
Acceleration is poor.
The break system is so poor it is dangerous to drive the car very fast and must keep more than a minimum distance from the vehicle in front.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I totally agree with the writer of this comment.
I have owned a Musso for three years. It is 7 years old, and I would buy another. It's comfortable, no brake problems, thirsty yes (but it is a heavy vehicle), and it's very reliable.
A very strange comment about the brakes. How do you pass the annual test? (I guess you have such tests in Iran)
I suggest that a competent mechanic will have a good look. Did you bleed air / change fluid / adjust calipers / replace pads / check disks for uneven services? I know tens of Musso owners in another Middle Eastern location and none ever reported poor braking.
I was considering buying a Musso 2003 in Iran. A zero kilometre (brand new) one, assembled in Iran, costs in excess of 35 Million Iranian Toumans in Iran, which is equivalent to about $39000! while the same car manufactured in Korea with much better quality and specifications, costs less than $21000 in UAE! But you are not allowed to import this or many other foreign cars from abroad into Iran, even from its close neighbour UAE. If you are lucky to be able to import it, your final cost will be more than double after customs etc.. So I decided not to be forced into paying nearly twice the price, for much lower quality, just because imports are barred for the unfair benefit of influential internal entrepreneurs. I am using public transport at the moment.
