Meet Great Wall customers John and Dianne Gorham, who use their new Steed Dual Cab for their invaluable volunteer work with FAWNA (For Australian Wildlife Needing Aid) helping wildlife needing assistance. FAWNA receives no formal funding to carry out its vital wildlife rescue, relocation and rehabilitation work and relies on membership subscriptions, its own fundraising activities and public donations. All activities are totally voluntary and no salaries are paid. Great Wall Motors Australia has pledged its support to help John and Dianne continue their incredible work and encourage all our friends to do the same.
Our trip turned into the best adventure of our lives and it is in part thanks to the strength and comfort of the Great Wall.
For us our goal was simple, we wanted to reach the tip and thanks to the handling of this vehicle we were able to do so and experience some of the most beautiful scenery along the way from outback Australia to coastal views.
It wasn’t an easy trip by any means as there were some rough rides on the Development Road, red dirt, river crossings and we saw many a vehicle and trailer discarded that basically just couldn’t handle this terrain. Eric F.
We started our building maintenance business with not a lot of money back in 2009 & 2011. We took our chance with the V240 single cab & a duel cab, both of these vehicles have performed extremely well. Regrettably, we’ve just recently sold the duel cab as our modern fleet had expanded, yet the V240’s has well outlasted our 2014 Ford Ranger in maintenance & repairs.
Our V240 single cab drove with the same factory tyres for 110,000Ks before requiring replacement. The Ford Rangers tyres needed replacement at 65,000Kms. The Ford Rangers suspension sagged in the back after 100,000 kms, whereas the V240 never required a suspension replacement or adjustment during its service life. Our last remaining V240 single cab has on 200,000Kms and I can’t part with it. It has now become our spare vehicle and in 2018 will see it moved to the farm & overhauled to become the farms main services vehicle for a few more years to come. It is still as tough as nails. My only gripe to Great Wall is that if you made a space cab version our whole fleet would continue to be Great Wall utes. The V240’s reliability, fuel economy & low maintenance costs have been a major help in growing my business to where it is today.
In 5 years I have never had trouble with my Great Wall. Mind you I really look after all my vehicles over the years and this one is no exception. I would dearly love to buy the latest model Great Wall but that will never happen due to lack of finance, but I know the one I have will last me for a long time yet!
Have had a V200 for a number of years, wanted to buy an affordable Turbo Diesel ute so bought a Great Wall. Have been pleasantly surprised with its reliability and capabilities!
I initially fitted a larger exhaust and a DP Chip which helped a lot with power, and since then have been to a number of locations including Fraser Island, Remote QLD and Various National Parks and 4WD Parks.
It has actually never broken down, been stuck or caused me any issues to speak of. It’s been a great ute, especially considering the price. I now have my first child on the way and will be trading my single cab in on a new Steed. Happy customer!
Solid, reliable, economical and great value. Two small issues that were sorted during the warranty period and proved to be minor. The 4 wheel drive functions well and has excellent low range capability. Top value and I recommend the model and the brand whenever I can.
For me and for what I’ve done, I can’t fault it one bit.
It made a great work ute and family car until it got written off in 2015 when I was hit up the backside. I’m very keen to get my hands on a new Great Wall 4×4.
