The name “red wine” is different from the nickname “Boom 9” for H9. I don’t want it to be associated with the impression of “big killer”. Moreover, red wine is just a regulator of our life and a continuation of Hongha.
In 2017, after ten years of use, Hongha retired. Out of recognition of Chinese products (not lack of money), he continued to choose the Haval brand, with the 2016 H9 as the successor. The car was picked up in April 2017, and it is exactly 2 Years, with a mileage of 50,000 kilometers.
More than ten years ago, I saw some articles about “off-road” and “off-road vehicles” in “The Great Wall Family”. Knowing that there is a company that is good at producing peasant vehicles, I have become a fan of the “Great Wall Old Farmer” (now people rarely hear the title “Great Wall Old Farmer”).
I learned a lot of DX posts here, increased my knowledge, and I also posted some travel notes here. It’s a pity that this place is not as lively as before, but I am still very grateful to the Great Wall family section, and I have gained a lot of happiness here!
As for the performance of “red wine”, many DXs in the forum have already talked about it, and I briefly describe it as follows:
After two years of use, I feel that the red wine has stable performance and low failure rate. The manufacturer has carefully designed the humanized design, for example, the automatic wiper is good, the headlights follow the steering, and the practical 360-degree surround shadow and so on. The cabin is well sealed, the chassis is well tuned, and the shock absorption system is good.
The suspension is soft and hard, and the high-speed steering is relatively stable. The power is also sufficient, and the feeling of pushing back is obvious (especially in the sports mode). As long as you step on the accelerator hard to increase the speed, it is generally easier to overtake another car, and it is also possible to increase the speed on hills and expressways. The operation is simple, the automatic mode can start, and the automatic mode can be used on roads, dirt roads, gravel roads, and potholes.
Using the economical mode on the road can also meet the needs, using the snow mode on icy roads does not slip, and using the automatic mode does not feel slippery. The fuel consumption is relatively high, 11-14L, and the fuel consumption in congested urban areas is 14-16L.
My red wine has no major bad performance (the problems that everyone often mentions have not yet occurred), mainly because the induction door does not open smoothly, the original car navigation is not good, the piggyback spare tire is difficult to remove, and “!” often appears on the dashboard. Calling the police is also a minor issue. It may feel better if the above problems are prompted in the manual.
I installed pull flowers, tow hooks, armrest boxes, car radios, etc. In order to prevent abnormal noises from the tailgate and to carry two spare tires when necessary, I added a spare tire rack and usually carried an empty backpack ( After the tow hook is installed, it will not fail the annual inspection. It is said that it is legal not to exceed the length of the vehicle).
In short: I am very satisfied with the power, power, sound insulation, audio, air conditioning and other aspects of the red wine! Thanks to the old farmers of Great Wall for producing this cost-effective car for us! If it is compared with Hongha, it is really a shotgun change!
This post mainly records the tens of thousands of kilometers traveled with red wine, of course including the condition of the car, the experience of using the car and the scenery along the way. I didn’t think about how to go off-road, I just wanted a hard-core off-road vehicle, because the world is so big, I want to see it. As a means of transportation, it needs better passability and cannot be blocked by poor roads such as rural potholes, mountain roads, wading roads, mudstone roads, and snowy roads.
In the past two years, Red Wine has been to Central China and East China successively, experienced hundreds of kilometers of snow-covered roads, and completed some routes around China (nearly 1,000 kilometers after the zero-kilometer starting point of my country’s land). In the middle of the journey, I changed to the Bingcha left route) to Nyingchi, Tibet to see the peach blossoms, etc. All kinds of roads are not a problem, and I am very satisfied with the performance of the red wine! This car is practical, comfortable for long-distance running, and the price is not expensive! Next, please pay attention and give us your advice!
I have walked a few short snow roads before, but not more than 100 kilometers! In January 2018, there was a sudden blizzard in Hubei. In order to avoid being frozen, I immediately set off and returned to Shenzhen. After driving more than 400 kilometers before leaving the ice and snow road, I have seen too many stories along the way.
Departing from Shenzhen to Yichang, Hubei, it was light snow when it arrived.
People in the north may be used to it, but I haven’t seen such heavy snow in many years!
These two photos show the difference overnight,
Take pictures as evidence:
Encountered such a situation, I don’t know what choice DX will make? Anyway, I only have one choice, to run away immediately!
Let’s go before the highway is closed!
I thought it would be possible to return on the highway all the way! We were overjoyed, and we were driven off when we arrived at Songzi. After getting off the expressway, there was a vast expanse of white land, and we didn’t know where to go?
Only follow the navigation forward! I met a gas station on the road and took a short break to check the condition of the car.
Under the chassis of the red wine are all accumulated and adhered ice and snow. This is the first time we have encountered such a situation. Let’s remove it first.
I don’t know what the road conditions ahead are, but I hope I can get on the highway before dark. Continue on shortly before entering Hunan.
I finally saw the highway sign, but I’m not happy, won’t I be denied access like before?
Suppress the joy in your heart and enter the high speed!
Although on the highway, there are still many situations on the road, which I rarely encountered before.
The performance of red wine is tested after going to high speed! The front and body of this oil tanker were almost twisted off.
Fortunately, this large truck only brushed against the guardrail and did not get off the highway.
Such ice and snow roads are a test for red wine! It turns out that the red wine can drive smoothly in automatic mode, and it can also be more stable in snow road mode. Because Red Wine was driving smoothly and faster than other cars, when I changed to the overtaking lane and prepared to overtake, the car in front of the right was not happy, and overtook my car, repeated several times, and soon found that he had crashed into the guardrail on the right!
Safe and smooth return to Shenzhen the next day. The photos sent back prove that our decision to return in time was absolutely correct!
With red wine, the Spring Festival of 2018 is destined to travel far. We decided to set off for happiness and go to Happy Avenue (the border road in Guangxi, the most beautiful Hena Expressway and the Puzhehei Scenic Spot in Yunnan are what we want to go).
Starting in the early morning of the first day of the Lunar New Year, thousands of miles of Mercedes-Benz in the southern border of the motherland. In the afternoon, I visited the first boundary monument of the Qing Dynasty. The starting point of my country’s coast is “0” kilometers (also the starting point of the land border line. This time, it is planned to complete the 725 kilometers of Guangxi border roads. ).
This is the “0” kilometer monument. We searched for it for a long time, and finally found it submerged in the sundries of small vendors.
