I could say with confidence that I totally trust the quality and reliability of the cars of Kazakhstani production. Our family during the long period drives SsangYong car, that’s why when we decided to purchase a new car there were no questions what model to select. We chose SsangYong New Actyon priced at 23 000 c.u. We applied for a credit in one of the banks for the period of 5 years. We think that it is very beneficial in comparison with the previously offered terms. The lending interest rate was around 20%, and now it is maximum 7,5%».
