    Hi! I am currently thinking of purchasing a 1998 Ssangyong Musso. Does anybody here have any idea on the performance, durability of this car? I also need some info on where I can source out parts for this. Thanks!

    Ssangyong Musso parts can be sourced for Mercedes specialist stores like MCR in Banawe. They can also service units.

    Don't have a Musso, but our 10 year old MB100 aka Ssangyong Istana is a solid performer. Of course things have gone wrong within the 10 years we have had it but nothing major. A/C seems to let go every 3 years or so but I just visit Mang Mario for that (he has a thread in the Workshop).

    Recent problem with the MB100 is overheating in traffic. Ngayon lang nangyari ito in the 10 years we have had it. But the shop said the problem might just be the fan clutch.

    The Musso might not be as reliable as a Honda or Toyota, but most problems are not as disastrous as they seem to be. Just try to find a unit that has not been abused. A lot of units in the market seem to have been neglected by their owners. But I'd take a neglected unit over an abused one.

    The engine is relatively bulletproof.

    lakas makina nyan... yun ngang fitted sa MB100 ang lakas eh.

    ang problema lang sa Musso. parang bangka ang body roll. nakasakay ako one time eh. although di ko na-drive...parang naisip ko handling ang prob nito. although the ride is good.

    In the MB100, the engine makes around 105bhp. But the Musso uses a turbo intercooler version of that engine so expect it to be more powerful. Transmission is Mercedes Benz (if A/T) or Borg Warner (if M/T).

    The ride is really floaty. Maybe Korean vehicles are really like that. Even the current Sorento is floaty.

    Question:
    Yung 1998 Musso ba ay yung new look na? New headlamps, bumpers, side mouldings?


    Or yung old look pa din?


    Musso Cabin:


    AFAIK, manual climate control yung local model with knob-type 4wd controller.

    I driven one pero sandali lang. OK naman sa akin ang ride at performance. Ang pintas ko lang eh maliit ang mga side mirror nya. Parang pang-kotse lang. Sabagay, pwede naman siguro ito palitan ng mas malaki.

    Sa pagkaalam ko 1996 or 1997 or earlier yata ssangyong. Yung 1998 MB na ang badge pero all made by ssangyong under license by MB. Parts nila same as MB. 4 types ang makina niyan.

    I once contemplated on purchasing one. Ang pinakamagandang ride is yung M/T na 6 cylinder gas. Masmalakas din makina niya. I think same sa MB C220. I forgot na which model pero may isang model daw diyan problematic ang A/t (pagkasabi sa akin ng isang mekaniko ng MB na nagservice na rin ng ilang musso)
