    Default Haval Resale value

    I heard an impressive story from one of my clients.

    Hed bought a H2 out of the box in Dec 2019 for R299k. He was always very happy with it & had no nonsense wrt ownership, reliability, perform, drivability, etc.

    Then Haval recently launched the Jolion (it gets very good press). Its probably got the best motor & spec out of all its competitors.

    https://businesstech.co.za/news/moto...asZnt_ujfQeL1s

    So he traded in the H2 for the Jolion. They gave him R255k trade-in!!!!!

    Id call that pretty impressive.

    Due to the shortage of new cars, used car prices have increased big time. It is a good price none the less. That Haval is one good looking vehicle.

    Default Haval Resale value

    If Id bought a Haval, Id fear the day Id have to flip it. But it goes to show that perceptions arent always correct.

    They are very well built units. Top quality.

    That engine has impressive specs for a 1.5l and it's petrol:

    Haval Jolion

    The Jolion 1.5T City Manual starts at R299,900

    The Chinese made vehicle makes use of a 1.5-litre turbopetrol engine with power outputs of 105 kW at 5,600 6,000 rpm and 210 Nm of torque at 2,000-4,4000 rpm.

    Engine is strong, but it's also pretty heavy on fuel, as I have it. That's my big downside with these. The fuel economy does not match other modern 1.5T engines out there.

    Would be interesting to see the trade in value if not buying a Haval

    Well my daughter has a 2 month old one sitting in her driveway a few hundred meters from me, and I have driven it.

    I have looked at the machining and the finish. Must say it is pretty hard to fault, impressive to say the least.

    You can feel the suspension isn't European, but it's a damn side better than ANY Toyota I have ever drive. At least there is a link between the steering wheel and the wheels. It's not an Audi or even a Hyundai, but I can tell you right now, the Chinese aren't coming, they are here.

    Remember that those pieces of socialist rubbish from Dacia.

    Well turns out the Renault Duster 4x4 is one of the best kept secrets on the market with a cult following and prices thru the roof at the moment.

    And the NP200 is the only surviving 3/4 ton bakkie and it ain't half bad.

    My 1.5T Kuga delivers 135kw and 240Nm, but also ain't light on fuel. To much fun to drive. I avg around 10km/L. Which is very similar to previous petrol vehicles I have owned with similar performance, but much larger capacity.

    I have test driven the Jolion super lux and was very impressed. Really liked the 7 speed duel clutch. Tad smaller than the Kuga, lower, less spacious and smaller boot, but still impressive value for money.

    Was told that there's no discount even if you don't have a trade in. R398 000 for this top spec model.

    I am very curious to see the pricing on the 3rd generation H6 being launched here, in the upcoming weeks. 2.0T 150Kw and 320Nm also available with the 7 speed dual clutch.

    This is similar to the old diesel vs petrol storry,
    you need to drive one heleva lot of km before you breakeven on the saving in fuel
    Korean, Indian and Chinese and going to pressurise the market more and more with offereings far more cost effective than our current offerings that everyone so believe in.

    Has everyone forgotten how many Chinese makes came, went away, came back, and went away again? I can't express an opinion about a particular Chinese car because I have never owned one.

    But I have bought and operated a generator with a Kipor Motor-reputedly from the 'largest factory producing more diesel engines than any other factory in the world'. It is a clod of absolute rubbish. It chowed oil from new, all its rubber components failed within 3 months, the radiator started sweat leaking after 6 months and then it blew one of its head gaskets. Dismantling, I found up to 4 gaskets per exhaust joint, a badly corroded pipe in the cooling system, head gaskets that looked like they had been made in a school woodwork shop by a Grade 8 pupil, and head galleries so close together that even the smallest bit of heat stress would result in a crack. It was assembled with handfuls of gooey gasket sealant (even the head gaskets), residue of which I found everywhere, included behind the cooling pump impeller. And ZERO service in SA. No gaskets, no pipes, no heads zip. Bought gaskets on line and they never got delivered. I had them hand made in PE.

    There are guys in this forum who buy Toyotas simply because of the extensive dealership network, and they have around 160 or so-find out how many there are for the car you buy first. I would be surprised to see more than 15 dealerships, and how long will they last? They are not getting many government orders either-why? .

    this pretty much goes for most current models due to shortage of cars. I sold my one FJ at a small profit.
