Great Wall has been in Peru for like two years and, although it ain't a great success, I guess it's doing pretty well. Like I said in another thread, I've already seen two Hovers and one Safe in the streets, and that's only in near my house, so I bet there's more of these out there.

I don't have a GWM vehicle yet, but my stepdad has bought a Safe, and it should be arriving in like two weeks, so I guess by that time I'll be able to say what I think about the SUV.

Anyway, is there any Peruvian people or Latin american folks around here who want to talk about the GWM? it'd be cool to know any Peruvian, GWM contact =D

hahaha, calm yourself man... no, I don't live in Puno, I live in Lima, and we've had the Chinese cars - both Geely and Great Wall - for little more than two years, I think...

why would you be screwed, BTW? :O

Hi i following the chinese car industry for long time, i'm very impressed , just a 1 year ago i saw a report in Ruedas y Tuercas by canal 4 about the GWM models in Peru , can say the Hover model is selling very well in Russia and parts of Europe, im living now in Orlando but i'm Peruvian and watching the chinese car industry, i wonder why they don't choose Peru for assembly plant for GWM or another reliable chinese brand because the strategic location and long time ties with China.

The Safe i dont know it, i have some experience in the Hover and Wingle both with diesel engine. My evaluation is positive for both.
They are tough, resistent, economical.
The negative side is i think the 2.8 tc engine lacks torque.

we had a safe model, very good car for off road, problem was fuel consuption between 10 or 12 liters of gasoline...but we solve that with installing LPG sistem on it

newer models have 4 braking disc, which is better than before, before they have drums on back tires, also you can order it with 2.2 engine 106 ps and 2.4 engine with 130 ps, also eqipment is very good, have A/C, power sterring, electric windows, central lock and so...

also car have very cheap spare part's,here is some pics of my last model, 2005 year model



here is lpg instalation


also i put chip tuning on it, give 10 ps more to engine, reduces fuel consuption, and top speed was better, also engine was better to drive

for wingle isn't so bad...my wingle how have 20000 km and goes much better when he had 5000 km, for hover 2.8 tc isn't so good..lack of power,but you can install chip tuning on it, we put on hover 30 ps more without a problem

From my first day in this forum i always took much attention in your coments i found them very informative. Do you recomend any chip brand?
By the way the cargo cover you instaled in your wingle looks great, was is custom made?

thank you :)

that cargo cover is original from GWM, you just pay when you order your car,it's very good quality, i also sell other brand like ARB, they are very expensive but don't have this quality


for chip...it's very complicated question, the most important is not to mess with the original ECU, you can see on my pictures, better to install another computer who will do that and to have the communication between ECU AND CHIP, we are using dastek unichip, it's very good product, you can informe better on the internet sites(look in yahoo) how it works, on my car he give more power 5-10 % on gasoline and 20-30 % on diesel, it's not recommented to go over that because engine will over heat, and usually person who put it in your car must have dynomater to measure power, torque and heating of engine, to find best parameters for it...then you will not have any problems with engine, also fuel consuption will be lower and car will go better, before when i drive it on hills i must put in 3rd gear and I must step on in...after we put chip we drive it regular, on 4th or 5th gear on low RPM and car simply have more power
