"Why you should buy a Ssanyong Musso"

OK, so it's a bit big, but it's quiet, smooth, corners better than many a normal car and has the very impressive 2.9 Merc diesel to make it all move.
I get 39 MPG even living in the Peak District of Derbyshire and even towing my 1 ton caravan I still get 29 MPG. Despite many an attempt I've still not managed to get it stuck anywhere in either mud or snow. If you are really serious it has a low box and diff locks too, but I've never needed them yet.

You can go into or out of 4 wheel drive at any speed up to 50 MPH without declutching and rather than wrestle with a second gear shift lever it's controlled by a small rotary swith no bigger than an old 10p that's a doddle to use.

It's very quick up to around 30 MPH, then a bit sluggish up to around 50, but after that it's away. The power band is 2,500 - 4000 RPM, keep the engine there and it'll take you anywhere.

There are spare parts dealers in the UK, and mechanically it's worth knowing it's all based on the Mercedes Sprinter 2.9 so it's well worth comparing parts costs between the two.

    Never heard of this make before

    One of my colleagues had one (I'm not even going to try and spell it) and often extolled its virtues. I thought it was rather an unattractive car, but it did seem to last and last for him.
