I also bought a Ssangyong Actyon, it’s a good car infact especially when you compare the price. My only complain is fuel consumption sucks, otherwise it’s a good car.
Does any one else have a problem with their Actyon pulling to the left? Since I bought her, brand new, she has been pullin to the left and the indicator stays on also. I brought her in for her annual service and they are going to see if she is covered. A second Actyon has come in with the same issue. There is also rust under both seats and the esp light comes on quite often!!!
It’s got that love it or hate it looks and ... I bought one hah! And what a presence it has any where with that luscious snout and the don’t mess with me look. The old Merc 230 powerplant is quiet even when pushed. It isn’t a quick car but I’m 46...so what do I care for quick pick ups anyway? There is a fair bit of pitch and roll (duh)...its an SUV. Its stable and at 130km/h, you’re firmly planted. You don’t buy an Actyon to throw it around bends and corners you’d want a Type R Civic or Bimmer for that. The build quality isn’t Merc or Lexus but I dare say comparable with the CRVs, Tucsons, X Trails and Sante Fes.
I found this car to be very narrow in the cockpit area, which left me feeling cramped and uncomfortable when driving long distances. I also feel a vehicle of this size should come as a standard 4x4 as you are paying the same amount of road tax as them and due to its inability to drive in snow due to the back wheel drive this leaves you very vunerable to hazard, due to the size and structure of it. I also found that this car has not been designed to be a family car due to the lack of space, both in the boot and in the back passanger seats. I was very disappointed with the engine power also, as it has no turbo, which made over-taking difficult, especially when carrying passengers.
