The Drom.ru portal learned from the official representative of the brand about typical problems of the “five”. Mainly, customers complain about the electrics: multimedia glitches, failures of the “blind” zone control sensors, failures of the smartphone mirroring systems, failure of the keyless access. Under warranty, it is necessary to change the rear-view cameras, batteries and steering wheels: even with low mileage, the leather wears out.

Omoda C5 has been available in Russia for less than two years, but the crossover is consistently among the TOP10 bestsellers of our car market, in good months outselling Lada Niva Legend and Lada Niva Travel! Nevertheless, the “Chinese” cars already have technical problems: in particular, the primary shaft bushing on the variator falls apart. Sometimes the gearbox has to be changed entirely.

Russian Omoda C5s are still under warranty, but replacing the CVT will in any case cause inconvenience to owners: the car will be idle for one to two months. Not everyone is provided with a replacement car: some dealers do not have enough transport for everyone. Another common problem with Chery and its sub-brands is that the factory set the wheel alignment incorrectly.

The Omoda C5 also has its advantages: rich equipment and competitive prices. No problems with turbo engines and robotic gearboxes have been identified yet, but such a combination only became available in the spring of 2023, and most customers still choose the more affordable Omodas with a CVT.
