General Comments:

I bought my SsangYong Musso Sports in 2004, and I still own this SUV. It's a silver colour and the car is 4WD.

It's slow since it has diesel engine, but it was built so well.

The seat is so comfortable in this car, and you will feel like you are sitting in an SUV.

This car is so good, and I was sad when I heard that SsangYong stopped making the Musso and replaced it with new model called the Kyron.

The spare parts of this car are so cheap, and both the engine and transmission were manufactured by Mercedes Benz.

Overall the car is a well built car, and I really recommend it to you.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

A frugal delight!

Faults:

Nothing what so ever has gone wrong with my car.

General Comments:

I initially could not decide between the 3200 or 2300 petrol models, but I opted for the smaller engine for economic reasons. In reality I found out that I had nothing to worry about with the 2300 version. Comparing to my 1999 model year Shogun 3000 GLS (it

's called a Pajero over here!) I can hardly feel any lack of power!

Meanwhile it is much more comfortable to drive and came with a few more options.

I love the car; I know its no G-wagon or Land Cruiser, but it costs a fraction of those prices as well. When I opted for Musso I thought I would miss my Pajero, not at all!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
