If it's true that you get what you pay for, then hopefully this POS was free.
Had the misfortune of driving one of these at work, albeit with a few kms on the clock.
It's impossible to get comfortable in the driver's seat, wheel is too low and too far.
Noise is horrendous, from everywhere, engine clanks, gearbox whines, and everything rattles.
Steering is lose, and mostly by guesswork, as at TDC there is no feel and the car wanders.
Turbo-Diesel engine is completely torqueless until around 2,500rpm, then suddenly takes off.
Practically impossible to select 3rd gear. For First, you're in the passengers lap, for Fifth, its hard against your leg, but venture anywhere in between and its pot-luck.
4x2 petrol dual cab
Very good so far as others have said, the not so good, light steering, turning circle not great, gearbox little bit noisy, but other than that we love it great to drive, getting better performance as its getting more klms on it for $20.000 I don't see why you wouldn't buy one will update as we get more klms on it.
Purchased in October 2021 for $20,000.00.
2018/19 Great Wall Steed Dual Cab Test Drive ...... Coooool.
OK, before l begin writing my review of the 2022 Great Wall Steed Dual Cab 4 X 2 petrol engine, let me say this firstly .........Yes it's Chinese and yes it comes from China ...... If you can get yourself over that one fact, read on ... If not, it's your loss.
Great Wall has been producing dual cab utes originally based significantly on 2003 2004 2005 Holden/Isuzu Rodeo twin can utes.
Do you need me to tell you that again .... I don't think so.
Gone is that fuel hungry horrible 3.5 V6 engine that even Holden dumped in 2005 for the Commodore eng...
Needs more power!
The ute itself is great. And many more features then previously offered, But with the same, underpowered engine. It's fine if you don't want to tow or go for a serious 4x4. But the engine needs a larger size option available. If there was a 2.8 TDi or even better, 3.2TDi, I would definately upgrade to it.
Questions & Answers
Bought a demo 11/2016 dual cab steed in January 2018 with only a couple of hundred on the clock. This is our second GW no problems with the first, but this one, Oh Dear! We have just had it to the dealer for a diagnostic ($150) it seems the Turbo is shot and they recommend not driving it and quoted $5500 to repair. Ouch. That's a lot for a vehicle we only paid $26000 :( The new Mandurah GW (Mandurah Holden) dealer (Apparently Peel Motors who sold us the car stopped being dealers) tried with GW to see if they would help out but it seems that as the first 5000km or six months (whichever came first) service was not completed in the book by the previous dealer makes it a deal breaker. Yes, she is out of warranty now, but with only 60,000km on the clock and considering we have not had it for 2 years we hoped they would oblige. No go it seems. So I need to get this vehicle repaired any suggested repairers in the Mandurah vicinity at a more reasonable price would be much appreciated.
I have a dual cab GW steed which I purchased brand new April this year and paid the extra $1000 for the radio/sat nav etc and putting air in my tyres the unit no longer works. It only shows the GW logo on the screen. I have tried to reset the unit, I have checked the relevant fuses and still nothing. Can anyone suggest anything else? Is the tyre pressure measurement related to the multimedia head unit?
Thanks in advance!
