Is the SsangYong Actyon reliable?

I am interested in a SsangYong Actyon 2.0-litre. I am told that it is a chain drive engine; is it reliable?

Hi there,

It is indeed a chain-driven engine so maintenance and reliability should be pretty good. SsangYongs tend to be reliable overall, but it's rather hard for us to get a good handle on their quality levels as there aren't that many on the road in Ireland. Experience in other countries where the brand is a stronger seller (Australia and New Zealand for instance) seems to show that they're pretty solid.
