Ssangyong Musso

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD and Sterling

Victor reviewed on 24 April 2012 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD (88 Kw/120 PS, Year: 1997 - 2005) with a Sterling Elite Searcher of 1804 kg.

have towed up hill and down dale with the musso without any problems, with a few modifications and at no cost mussos can give an easy 140+bhp and will pull harder from lower rpm. just by turning a couple of screws on the fuel pump and blocking the erg valve. This car will also run without modification on cooking oil used or you can see I am a Musso fan.on the downside its a bit bouncy and loud on the motorway and ugly buy a good one and it will go on for years........

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD aut. and Lunar

Stuart Tingay reviewed on 22 November 2011 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD aut. (88 Kw/120 PS, Year: 1997 - 2005) with a Lunar Lexon EW of 1520 kg.

I had a Musso 2.9 towed ok but a bit underpowered for hills, I now have a 2.9TD Daewoo model, this pulls the caravan no problem and up hills. I get about 26mpg when towing and 38mpg!! normal driving. Got all the bells and whistles as standard. Well pleased with the car, recommend to anyone.

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD and Avondale

Colin reviewed on 03 July 2010 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD (88 Kw/120 PS, Year: 1997 - 2005) with a Avondale Land-Ranger 6400 of 1690 kg.

I have owned my Musso now for over 6 years, in that time I have coverd over 70k miles with no problems at all, I tow a landranger 6400 ebl and my wife dosent know travelling light, Hill starts used to be a bit of a worry thinking will it or wont it, but give it a foot full just befor starting to let the clutch out and its away.
consumption if you keep around 56 mph and run with the truckers you can expect 27 mpg boot it and try to out run the truckers and it drops off a lot, most hills and long inclines can have you dropping down the box if you let the revs get too low keep it at around 2200 and you should be fine.
We do a lot of rallying up a down the country some rally fields can be very soft or muddy but this is part and parcel, the Musso can be switched on the fly to four wheel drive and as long as you let the traction control do its thing you can cross most fields with confidence,I am so satisfied with my Musso that it will be with me for many years to come

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D and Abbey

Victor reviewed on 15 October 2009 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D (73 Kw/99 PS, Year: 1995 - 1998) with a Abbey GTS Vogue 516 of 1445 kg.

Fine on the motorway had to use 4th gear at times but went along ok at 60ish ok, pulls well on the flat , slow on hills you have to keep the revs up well in advance of the hills, it will pull you up anything but not very fast. not bad on fuel if you just plod along, have a look at the owners club site for advice on how to increase the power output with a few tweeks at no cost. ( I am very happy with my musso after spending half an hour under the bonnet, much improved pulls much better in 5th little need to drop down the box now with no loss of fuel economy I rate this truck very highly.)

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D and Sterling

Gary reviewed on 13 May 2009 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D (73 Kw/99 PS, Year: 1995 - 1998) with a Sterling Europa 460 of 1295 kg.

Great tow car, very stable and has the power to deal with most situations. I have towed all round Europe with it over the last ten years. The Temperature gauge never goes above normal even in 42 Deg heat. The lack of power is only a problem when overtaking, especially with an auto like mine, however if you get the right gear it has plenty of grunt. Overall a great towing car for the money at the moment they are as cheap as chips, but keep it quite they will all want one.

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD and Bailey

Kirk reviewed on 03 December 2008 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD (88 Kw/120 PS, Year: 1997 - 2005) with a Bailey Pageant S6 Bretagne of 1395 kg.

the musso pulls my bailey with no problems at all its not the quickest of 4x4's but as taken everything in its stride,did have a landrover freelander before this but the musso is a more relaxed and nicer car to be in with van on back and its alot cheaper to buy but alot more car for your money

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD and Bessacarr

Bill Crawford reviewed on 14 October 2008 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 TD (88 Kw/120 PS, Year: 1997 - 2005) with a Bessacarr Cameo 645 of 1769 kg.

the Musso fully laden is just on the cusp of being underweight,but never the less pulls the Bessie just fine.the only areas for concern are when large trucks overtake and for a second or two the bow wave affects the handling but the Musso soon pulls straight again withpout any need for steering adjustment.On hill starts the Musso's handbrake is notoriously dodgy but with a bit of deft footwork on the pedals the Musso has pulled the Bessie from a standing start on the steepest of hills without too much trauma.A steady 2000rpm will produce an impressive mpg considering the combined weight of the combination but stick your toe down and watch the fuel gauge drop visibly by the mile.
I lam impressed with the Musso it's definitely a poor mans Merc 4x4 but the 5 cylinder made under licence from Mercedes engine is bomb proof if you service it regularly, and it has everything you could wish for in a robust towing machine If the rear seats are folded the rear stowage space is cavernous and the Bessie is a luxury flatlette on wheels I would recomend both to any caravanner.

Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D and Lunar

Stuart reviewed on 21 July 2008 a Ssangyong Musso 2.9 D (73 Kw/99 PS, Year: 1995 - 1998) with a Lunar Lexon EW of 1470 kg.

My Musso pulls very well, it is more a workhorse than pulling the van at speed. I get about 30mpg which is a good return, not having the turbo gives good mpg BUT you do miss the extra boost. On saying that as fuel price's keep going I'll live without the boost. Recommend Musso if you want good mpg and a workhorse.
