[YesAuto Owner Interview] Relying on the technical support of Citroen Elysee, Dongfeng Fengshen S30 has achieved certain results since its launch in July 2009. Today, four years later, Dongfeng Fengshen S30 has already changed its appearance, with the addition of the H30 hatchback model. It has also further enriched its product line. Next, let's take a look at how the three car owners have evaluated the S30 and H30 after years of use.

● Mr. Wang

Mr. Wang, 38, is a company employee. He bought the current Dongfeng Fengshen S30 manual premium model in 2009, but because he doesn’t drive much, he only drove more than 18,000 kilometers in the past four years. Mr. Wang usually cares about his car. Let’s take a look at his car experience.

● About buying a car

Mr. Wang did not take too long to consider when choosing a car. At that time, he was mainly entangled with Kia Cerato and Dongfeng Fengshen S30. The reason why Cerato was excluded was mainly because Mr. Wang had some concerns about Korean cars. In addition, Mr. Wang compared He likes dual reversing lights, which is one of the reasons why he chose Dongfeng Fengshen S30.

● Satisfaction

Mr. Wang is most satisfied with the space of the Dongfeng Fengshen S30. Since most of the trips are with his family, Dongfeng Fengshen S30 has won the praise of Mr. Wang and the family’s love. Besides, Dongfeng Fengshen S30 is equipped with As well as the humanized design, Mr. Wang is also quite satisfied.

● Dissatisfaction

Speaking of dissatisfaction with Dongfeng Fengshen S30, the first thing Mr. Wang mentioned was the oil tank anti-oil, perhaps the problem of the tubing design. Mr. Wang often encountered oil choking when refueling. After going to the 4S shop to replace the tubing several times The problem is still not solved. As for the engine noise and the abnormal sound of the trunk, although it also troubled Mr. Wang for a period of time, it was finally solved with the help of the 4S shop.

summary

In the four years that Mr. Wang used the car, the overall performance of the Dongfeng Fengshen S30 still met his expectations at the time. Although some problems were encountered, they were basically solved satisfactorily. Finally, we asked Mr. Wang a more interesting question. If time goes back and back when he bought the car, would he still choose Dongfeng Fengshen S30 under the same environment? After thinking for a while, Mr. Wang smiled and said that he might still stick to his original choice.

● Mr. Sun

The last car owner, Mr. Sun, is a teacher. He also bought this 2009 Dongfeng Fengshen S30 manual noble model four years ago. However, unlike the previous owner, Mr. Wang, Mr. Sun drove his love for four years. The car drove a total of nearly 50,000 kilometers. I think he must have the deepest feelings about this car.

● About buying a car

When he bought a car, Mr. Sun also considered Hyundai Elantra and Volkswagen Bora, but in the end, after weighing many aspects, he chose Dongfeng Fengshen S30. The main reason was that the Elantra model was too old and the Volkswagen Bora was too expensive.

● Satisfaction

Speaking of Dongfeng Fengshen S30, Mr. Sun believes that it still has many advantages. First of all, in terms of configuration, the S30 with electric sunroof and automatic air conditioning is not inferior to other models. In terms of seating space and humanized design, Mr. Sun believes that the performance of the S30 is also remarkable. As for fuel consumption, the level of 7L/100km is also in line with his expectations.

● Dissatisfaction

Similar to the first owner, Mr. An, Mr. Sun also believes that the performance of Dongfeng Fengshen S30 in storage space is not good enough, and the design of the central armrest is also unreasonable. The area is too small and the height cannot be adjusted. It is not practical. Very high. In addition, Mr. Sun also feels that the S30’s seats are hard, making it unsuitable for long-distance driving.

summary

    As the owner of the car with the most mileage, Mr. Sun is quite satisfied with the overall performance of Dongfeng Fengshen S30. Apart from the oil choking problem mentioned by Mr. Wang, there are basically no other problems. As for storage space and seats As well as the central armrest problem, Mr. Sun can only solve it by himself through “Taobao”.

● Mr. An

Mr. An is 34 years old this year and is a company employee. Three years ago, he bought the 2010 H30 1.6L manual elegant model. The vehicle has traveled more than 39,000 kilometers so far. As the only H30 owner in this owner interview, let Let's take a look at the story of Mr. An and his car.

● About buying a car

Mr. An also visited Volkswagen Jetta, Southeast V3 Lingyue and Great Wall Cool Bear in the car selection stage. The reason for giving up Jetta was that the configuration was too low. V3 Lingyue was excluded because of the high price. As for the Great Wall Cool Bear, Mr. I still like it, but when I watched the car, I felt that the bonnet was moved by pressing it, which didn't feel strong enough, so I finally gave up.

● Satisfaction

Although usually a car is used by one person, after several trips with many people occasionally, Mr. An still hears from relatives and friends that he is satisfied with the riding space. In addition, the spacious trunk also saves a lot of worries. In addition to space, Mr. An also feels very good about the full-size spare tire equipped with Dongfeng Fengshen H30. Many joint venture cars are not so kind.

● Dissatisfaction

    Mr. An’s dissatisfaction with Dongfeng Fengshen H30 is mainly concentrated in the front storage space and 4S store services. Among them, because there is no cup holder in the front row, similar water cups and beverages can only be placed inside the door, and they are not easy to take when driving. Convenience. In addition, Mr. An also has something to say about the service of the 4S shop. He thinks that the name “winter maintenance” is not clear enough. In many cases, he personally went to the repair shop to see which aspects were repaired. It is not an exaggeration for consumers to request a transparent and open maintenance details.

summary

Overall, in the three and a half years of use, Mr. An’s Dongfeng Fengshen H30 did not have any major problems (experienced oil choking, reworked engine sound insulation), and basically met his expectations when he bought the car. Regarding the issue of service transparency in 4S stores, it is hoped that manufacturers can strictly control and regulate 4S store services to create a better environment for consumers.

Full text summary

Through interviews with three car owners, we can see that the owners of Dongfeng Fengshen S30 and H30 are quite satisfied with the space, configuration and fuel consumption. As a family car, it basically meets the basic requirements of consumers, but it is choking. Issues such as oil, lack of storage space, and transparency of 4S store services also really bother them. I hope that manufacturers can make corresponding adjustments in future model changes to provide consumers with better models. (Photo/Text Car Home Li Weilong)
