    Over all these years spent graying my scalp in these MITSUs, I've found them dependable machines with decent performances from the 2.5,2.8 and the new 3.2 Diesels. All are fairly friendly to operate with comfy rides.....definitely won't let you down, whatever you throw at them. The NOT SO happy people are the ones using poor quality filters and lubes and unfortunately end up with bonnets up on the roadside. The 2.5L( 4D56), though not a beast but would carry you on and off the tarmac with ease. It has served me well.... be it the sands of Gwadar or the snowy tracks at Khunjerab.....without any hiccups. The new CRDI version of the same 4D56 would send a 1kz Prado spiraling into a fit of shame as it churns out 165 horses in the new L200 Triton animal/w'shaw edition. But if you can lay your hands on a 3dr 2.8( 4M40), you are in for a real treat!!! Wheel spin comes plenty everytime you floor it.....and won't let a 1kz Prado get outta sight. The petrol versions, 6G72 and 6G74, are even better but less common here. My vote....2.8 3dr if money is no major consideration, alternatively, the 2.5 can almost manage all the tricks!!!!

    @ Mitsu Man, Agreed. I had the opportunity to drive a 2003 5-door 3.2 Direct Injection Diesel a few weeks ago. It was the most comfortable 4x4 in its class, would put a Prado or Surf to shame. It had a very nice interior, all the other amenities of life you can think of. But the real gem was the engine, it was just so full of torque, the gearbox was amazing, and the 4wd system is just so easy to use. Plus, its a native 7 seater. I also think they look great now. I'd love to get one, if I had the money.Only drawback was that it didn't have the ground clearance I wanted, but its a SUV, not a hardcore offroader.


    Cheers, RKR.
    I will miss her, that RKR. She will always be the one that got away.

    What you drove is the 4M41(163 horses) in the 3rd gen Pajero....the motor in the 4th gen( 174 horses) is even better! I have one and it's fantastic.


    @syed237


    A petrol V6( 3.0....150- 170 bhp, 3.5.... 210bhp, 3.5 MIVEC....280bhp, 3.8 MIVEC.....270bhp) are the ones I'd then recommend. It 'll be only fair to warn you that these are more of collector's item if you have one here in the land of the pure and are hard to come by in good condition. But if you do find one, go for it!!!

    Ok guys lets clear up one common hype about pajeros... They are unreliable... nope thats not true at all, that wholly depends on how one uses it and then what he does after wards to take care of it. Now pajero's are very very good off road, now why the **** they are best in the dakar rally, probably the biggest rally on earth, because they maintain it and fix it what it needs to be with, and go to some corner ****** bag mechanic and give him a 1000 bucks to wrap it up for a while. Every vehicle needs maintenance and that solely depends how you use it. now addressing the some hype's related with "unreliability" First of all the "Heat Up" hype. Any vehicle will create, when its a diesel its twice, because diesel engines are made of steel while petrol engines are made of aluminum or alloys which are lighter and transfer heat more quickly, also petrol engines run a compression ration of 1:11 while diesels run around 1:21, this creates more pressure and thus more heat. A petrol engine top piston ring is exposed to 160 C of heat, while a diesel top ring is exposed upto 320! Twice the heat!!!! When a engine is turbo charged there is a amount pressure in created in the intake manifold and in the intake valves, which is known as boost pressure, a normally aspirated vehicle sucks in air via the vacuum created by the rings, while a turbo pushes in the air into the intake manifold then into the intake valves and then into the cylinder. So now you understand how much heat a diesel engine will produce.... This means that one should maintain ones vehicle more often, correct! First of all if you check your radiator regularly and fill it up with fresh cooloant and water after every month there won't be a heating problem, get the radiator serviced every three months. Also there is very common flaw in drivers of our time, they just want to turn the key and let it rip till it reaches a billion kilometers, that is the primary reason engines die on pajeros, every turbocharged vehicle when started should reach their optimum operating temperature, let the engine warm up, the turbo to build up pressure and then drive it. Reliability..... well its all about the mechanics advice, no its ****ing not, always get genuine OEM company parts, avoid repairs if you want you vehicle to not die on you, use quality lubricants and manufacturer recommended lubes according to their respctive climate ambient temps, don't pour any oil you see or what the guy in the funny hat tells so just he can make a few bucks, have your vehicle greased weekly, replace the air filter with every oil change and every next oil change. There are a lot of things people can do which can keep their vehicles mint and reliable, but i gotta hand it to the people who just have drivers get all the work on their vehicles. Well thats enough ranting for me now....i better skip... :-)

    Mitsuman,

    None taken, but decency as a virtue does not always accomplish the objective of a statement. Somethings have to be said in manner that people understand it thoroughly.

    I work by myself on my vehicles to an extent which i can, and i hate to see people blaming the vehicles and manufacturers, rather than their incompetence to fulfill a requirement of a vehicle which they do not, and take a short cut too.

    Though maybe my statement seems offensive, but it is to clear up a common flaw in the system of vehicle maintenance the motoring community have adopted.

    I take it that the manner adopted was not decent, so for the future to come, i will keep in mind not to adopt that unruly manner to express a statement i want to make.

    I'll chime in with a few anecdotes of mine. We've had one in the family from new from 1990. That's 19 years and just under 450,000 kms (maybe more, but the vehicle had a broken speedo cable for two years - so I'm guessing conservatively here). Not babied, it's a 3-dr with an N/A 4D56. As far as reliability goes, if you change oil regularly and use good filters, it will NOT let you down. It's only when you neglect it is when it starts to suffer. As far as breaking timing belts and bending valves is concerned, it breaks off its rockers before it bends valves. The valves go straight vertically into the combustion chambers, so bent valves aren't really a common occurence IMO.


    The engine was re-conditioned at 380,000 kms (again, an estimate) in mid-2005. Since, it has been smooth sailing. Even before being rebuilt, it was just weak, but it still ran fine. Going up mountainous roads was tough though, requiring low-range at every opportunity.


    Overheating issue? Make sure your not giving the engine death. It's a diesel for heaven's sake. It's supposed to lug, not to be revved to the moon. Max torque is at 2000 RPM. I change gears before. It stays happy and cool, doesn't drink fuel, and doesn't scream. Ours started overheating in traffic (in 45+ outside temp with A/C mind you) The problem? A recalcitrant thermostat. Changed that, now is as cool as a cucumber. Redbull_ar, Ahsen_rg, Spectra, and Ghuncha will vouch for the condition of the vehicle.


    Cheers Mate!

    @syed237


    P.S. Please be careful in selecting your car, if it's been abused, you might get stuck with a money pit. But if it's in good condition overall, I say go for it, you will not be disappointed. (y)

    Thanks for understanding my point of view. Much appreciated!!!


    @sami_voodoo


    Absolutely correct. With proper usage/technique, it'll last you your lifetime. My shift is around 2800 revs....keep it under 3k and you can go around the world. The only problem is the manual tranny(in a 4D56) would set it to 3500 revs if you wanna do the motorway at 120 and ,thus,sadly is not sustainable. The auto on the other hand does the same speed at 2800 rpm only....amazing difference....go 3000 and you are doing 130.....helps gulp the m'way decently!!!
