This is my 2nd ssang yong,had the radius first and come 1st mot needed a lot spent on it so decided to trade in for Rexton top of the range diesel with all mod cons, had nothing but problems since purchase brand new in 2009, car had 2 recalls but parts weren't available for several months then I was involved in a non fault accident and this proved very costly as ssang yong claimed the factory had gone on strike and were unable to provide parts for our car ,with a disabled child couldn't be… Read Full Review

Hello from South Africa. We have a Ssangyong Rexton 2 and it is the BEST car we've ever owned. Very reliable and really good value for money. It has ALL the bells and whistles - more than you get in any other SUV in it's category(like Kia or Hyundai). It ranks up there with the likes of MERC and BMW SUV's. Really comfortable, tows very well and with 4x4 low range is a dream off road. We've even taken 7 people in it and gone up Sani Pass! I love it and will buy another one in a heart beat… Read Full Review

It is an excellent car, have owned two previous Ssangyongs and very reliable cars. I think people who critisize it are snobs and have actually never driven one. I have owned Mercedes and other European cars and the Rexton has a similar feel. Most engine parts are European . Very happy with it, only drawback is the lack or poor marketing to improve the branding… Read Full Review

This is our second Ssangyong Rexton, the first Rexton purchased Sept 2004 the 'new' manual 270 SE, 29 mpg towing our twin axle caravan(1750kgs) to Scotland, my Husband thought he bought a different vehicle to the Rexton that was reviewed that month and 'slated' so badly by the Caravan Club Tow Car of the Year. Then after I had broken my left ankle he changed it for a 2007 Rexton automatic 2. this tows the caravan equally as well.
Can't see the point of a vehicle in permanent four wheel drive… Read Full Review

Message from Holland: own a chip-tuned Rexton for 1,5 years, no big problems. Tow a horst-trailer, cruise the autobahn, vacation in mountains.
The Mercedes-designed engine is reliable. Follow instructions on oil-change for engine and automatic gearbox. And wait for the engine and turbo to warm up (about 10 min/10 km) before rev it up.
Story from the guy who blew his Rexton twice seems strange to me, especially because he does not tell us the causes of the blow-ups… Read Full Review

We purchased two Ssangyong Rexton II SX in April 2006 - each engine in both cars has blown up - each vehicle has been serviced every six months at an average cost of £450 - The first car was fixed within warranty by NMG motors Norfolk, but was off the road for six weeks whilst waiting for spare parts - NMG and SSangyoung did not provide a loan vehicle so we hire a vehicle which cost us over £1500. The second vehicles engine has now blown up and SSyangyoung and NMG refuse to fix it landing us… Read Full Review
