      I had one in Caribbean when I was living there for a project. At least on the island I was staying at, trucks dont last very long regardless of maker. Salt completely destroys the frame within 4 to 5 years. Given that, I think a GW makes a lot more sense than a Hilux since the reliability doesnt really matter. (Not saying GW is not reliable, mine was reliable during the time I owned it)

      Somebody should've told the Chinese they can keep it. I wouldn't even consider buying one of these if they were the last pickups on earth. I'd rather buy a 20 year old Hilux.

      I don't know about the engine, but everything assembled in Bulgaria is extremely durable. I have a 35 years old drilling machine "ЕЛПРОМ ЛОВЕЧ" and it still works great. Now these machines are called Sparky and only Bosch may be considered better, but it's at 5x price. Everything we produce is like German, dumbasses. Also pretty cheap.

      I bought 3 of these nearly 7 yrs ago for my company so theyve served me well ive just recently replaced them with the new model all 3 have done over 300ks+ and were still hauling very well yes i got them tuned cause they where under powered with only 100kws but they where tuned to 150kws with a little over 420nm of torque they where a great cheap investment for my company ive now got 7 of these and a hilux and the luxy has had to go back to toyota a couple of times cause it keeps randomly going into limp mode i will say if you do get one only buy if your going to use it as a tradies ute or farm hacker if you want to pull a caravan or boat regularly then get it tuned up

      we've test drive 2 of them and we've driven range rover and such and could say alittle on the japanese side cause we're love older nissans and the great walls both drove well and were nice to drive along with seemed to have plenty of power and we still see them knocking around abit
      we've got nissan d21s and those are one of the toughest pickups made and terrano/mistrals and we could compared the great
      walls as pretty good against them and when we drove the great wall it felt fairly strong and pulled through the gears well
      remember the japanese had alot of problems with their earlyr cars and pickups and as we all know rust

      my mate had a great wally ute and he gave away for $4000 1 years old. he was driving doing 110 km and heard a clunk crack noise and his passenger door broke off lucky to hang on by the lock mechanism and that was just the start.
      he kept the $4000 and bought a canopy for his new Amarok

      I used to want to buy an RV, but back then a Great Wall RV(based on their pickup) was the only 1 I could afford, so I read a lot about it. Some body drove thousands of miles without malfunction, went all the way from east(north-east) of China to Tibet, I mean, that do says something, Tibet is the highest ground in the world, and the air is thin, road is tough, filled with stones.
      And everybody I read about said great wall diesel pickup is very robust, performs pretty OK for its price, and Great Wall Pickup has been sold overseas millions(NO.1 car exporter of China), I mean China isn't famous for its car manufacturing, that big number of oversea selling says something, those ppl in India, South America buy pickup not to do easy work like family picnic, mostly they are using them for business purpose, and they all like this pickup, also means it is very reliable car, with reasonable price.

      Typical Chinese quality. Shit! Replaced clutch, replaced rear diff, replaced idle control valve twice, broken drivers front seat, seat belt brackets have fallen apart and that's just at 40,000kms on clock. Can't tow for shit, no power whatsoever off road, struggles to overtake, people don't be fooled by the good looks. I know I was! I traded in my 1985 Land cruiser FJ40 for this piece of shit, very regrettable choice.

      Mr O'Brien has too much to say for himself. I suggest he look at the documented review by a group of Aussies who took a Patrol, a Pajero and a Great Wall on a grueling venture on the old telegraph road in northern Australia. The GW performed beyond expectations and didn't get stuck anywhere despite being loaded to the gunwales with people and gear and being put through some ridiculous situations just to see what happened to it.
      The earlier ones are getting up to the 150000 km mark now, and some members of the 4x4 paddock bashers club swear by their GWs and these guys don't tolerate shit. Col, NZ.

      Defiantly by Holden Colorado the reason is mechanics love the great wall and the great wall sucks it has low safety low towing low everything if you don,t won,t to by your coffin that early then don'y buy the Great wall i would even rather the Mitsubishi Triten witch also sucks. so be smart and don't buy a great wall they look ugly and they suck.
      So by a Holden, Toyota, Nissan, ford and Mazda if you don't want to sign your own death wish.

      Ooh, American cars are not great. There was great excitement that finally, after 60+ years of production, the new Mustang would be available here in South Africa in RHD at Ford dealerships. Despite it's exorbitant price (import duties etc. push it way passed the price of other premium brands) , most of the car journalists who tested it were disappointed by it's cheap, tacky interior and old car handling . Rather stick to Merc, BMW or Eastern brands.

      I don't know if these are made in different countries, but certainly the ones we get in my country have proven themselves to be tough workhorses. The interior plastics do get quite rattly over time, but that's typically with careless and even abusive commercial use. I've driven ones owned for family use and everything's still tight even after 5 years and 100,000kms. And running costs, especially in terms of parts and service, is A LOT cheaper than the comparable Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger etc
