Default Ssangyong Kyron 4X4?

So are these things any good? This will be my designated wheels for the next week whilst my Landy is in for body repairs after an altercation with some metal poles at the Shell garage.......

At the petrol stations, poles, about 15cm in width, about 500mm high obviously there to protect the pumps, went a bit close as I cannot see it from the drivers seat, with the result of both doors, fender all dented, R30k later!

I thought you had an altercation with some Poles. As in from Poland.

PS. What do you call men from Poland. Poles.
What do you call woman from Poland. Split poles.

You could complain about the "dirty" but the "funny looking" is part of the SsangYong marketing strategy!

Be honest. You liked it so much you were afraid that you would want to keep it and never go back to the Landy...

Ag nee man Dirk, ek is nou effe teleurgesteld. Siende dat Tata vir Land Rover gekoop het, het ek eerder verwag jy gaan die Landy op 'n Tata inruil.

Wat mens ook nie alles sal doen om vir 'n kort rukkie van 'n Landy af weg te kom nie, ry nou al met opset in pale vas...

Jy gaan nog baie van die Tucson hou (as 'n platkar). Ons het saam met vriende deur die KNP getoer met een, en ek was elke dag meer en meer beindruk.

Nou hoekom sal ek nou weer 'n Ssangyong wil ry ? Ek sal nooit weer 'n nuwe Ssangyong thread begin nie BTW Dirk hoe ry die Tuscon ? Jy kan bly wees jy ry nie met die 2.0 Kyron nie. Die turbo lag sou jou mal gemaak het

Sou dit nie makliker en goedkoper gewees het om net te gaan vir 'n toetsrit nie...

Soos hulle sÍ, uit die suigeling se mond.

Ek wat my dogtertjie netnou karate toe, sy klim in die Tucson in, kyk so bietjie rond, en reken: This car is just like that other uncle Uys' car.

Ek het maar saamgestem.

So- no-one came back to say if the Ssangyong is good or bad--I`ll be getting my Kyron M200 XDI T-Tronic on Monday(2nd hand )--When I tested the vehicle it had 235/70/16 on and with 4wdL it went up a wet and muddy hill with no problems--So 4x4 is working--So is the vehicle reliable or not?
Is it true that the motor and gearbox are made by Mercedes?,

Cheers
Mark

Het nou die dag `n gesprek met een van my kollegas gehad en aan hom gese dat ek `n Ssangyong Kyron 4x4 gekoop het, met `n baie vuil kyk hy na my en vra hoekom ek so `n dom ding gedoen het?? "Hy bestuur `n Toyota Landcruiser"--My vraag aan hom was , Wat is fout met `n Kyron en tot vandag toe kon hy my nie `n antwoord gee nie--Kan iemand hier op die forum vir my vertel wat die probleem met Ssangyong is of is dit maar `n Toyota of Land Rover ding

Gelukkige SsangYong 2lt Diesel T/tronic 4x4 eienaar.
