Here's a few more underbody shots of a new 2wd H5 (2.0VGT/5-speed Hyundai auto transmission) on the lift at the dealer.

Re: Great Wall Haval H5
So you are saying just the Wingle pickup had/has the leaf springs on the back?

Thank for the extra pictures. Do you have any of the H5 auto AWD? Thanks!

Re: Great Wall Haval H5
I forgot to ask here, if anyone knows, if there is room to cranking those torsion bars which
would allow the front higher and therefore to level a bit better with the back of the hover?

Here are some left and right underbody pictures of an H5 with the Hyundai 5R35 5-speed automatic.

I stopped by the dealer yesterday and they still don't have any 2012 models. They had promised 2012 models would arrive in September, and then promised in October. And now they have no idea. It's all very strange. Certainly causes a customer to lose faith in the brand.

Re: Great Wall Haval H5
I think you posted the AWD version of this transmission with a transfer case in previous pictures, now that I understand its the Hyundai tranny, thanks!

Here are two things I don't like. The 2.0VGT's Delphi fuel system has a fuel "primer bulb" like an outboard motor. This looks cheap to me.

The 2.0VGT's engine oil dipstick design allows dirt and dust to fall into the top of the tube. Sure, the dipstick has an o-ring. But when you pull out the dipstick, inevitably, dirt will fall in and contaminate the oil.

The 2.5TCi has a much better engine oil dipstick design, with an upper "cover" over the dipstick tube opening, that effectively prevents dirt from entering. Most dipsticks have this design. I can't imagine what GW was thinking when they design the 2.0VGT's dipstick.

One of the 2.5TCi's few negative aspects is the engine oil dipstick is inconveniently located at the rear of the engine next to the firewall. It's inconvenient to reach.

Re: Great Wall Haval H5
I believe that I have solved the confusion over the 2.0VGT about Delphi and Bosch fuel systems. Apparently the 110kW (150hp) 4D20 version of the 2.0VGT, used with the Hyundai 5R35 5-speed automatic transmission, gets the Delphi fuel system.

The newer 4D20B version (100kW/136hp) introduced this year specifically for H5s ordered with the 6-speed manual transmission gets the better (my opinion) Bosch fuel system.

It’s important to remember that the 4D20 uses a Borg-Warner variable geometry turbocharger (VGT), but the 4D20B uses an inferior Shanghai MHI wastegate turbocharger.

The 4D20 with its Delphi fuel system and Borg-Warner VGT seems to differ little from the original Kia 2.0 CRDi. I only know they deleted the fuel heater (a bad decision by GW).

As I posted earlier, the reduced horsepower appears to be an effort to solve the clutch and transmission problems occurring with 6-speed manual transmission 2.0VGT H5s.

Because of China's terrible traffic jams, I'm leaning towards the automatic transmission although I do enjoy the sporty feeling of a 6-speed manual. I wish GW would stop using the Zomax 6-speed transmission and cooperate with a better transmission and clutch suppliers (ie. Getrag and ZF) to resolve the high failure rates.

Re: Great Wall Haval H5 you own hover???

Re: Great Wall Haval H5
I guess we cant have it all... But I would definitely go with the Delphi system as long as the more Hyundai-like engine design and auto transmission comes along... It seems to me that "chiping" the Delphi with already available Kia 2.0 CDRi module would give you the same or better performance/economy than the Bosh on a "B" version engine that has already been "tamed" by GW anyways... just my 2 cents :)
