    They all are good, its all depend on your needs and budget.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    depends on your requirements, but obviously a cruiser will alwasy be better than a prado or surf of the same year.

    it's also down to price. i'd rather spend the same money on a slightly newer surf than a prado in the sme price bracket as i'd be getting a better, newer and lower milage surf in the same money. BUT if i just needed a solid SUV for offroading on the weekends then i'd go for a 80-series cruiser diesel (multivalve) and spend the rest of the money i save on offroading upgrades.

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    Ahem....so when are you getting tired of your (self proclaimed crumbling) white evo??? Whenever you do, remember there is a mitsu_man out there who loves machines with failing engines wiring blah blah....or you wanna rebadge it with TOYota emblems and keep it!!!

    @saaduk

    Man you are funny....hahahahaha....good one......failing parts but I do remember a thread in not so distant past from the great legend owner about selling crappy TOYota engines and parts.....what happened back there, amiiiiiiiigoooooo????

    @RAO

    Chill pill amigo....they all own Mitsus and crave to buy more but since this thread for inside TOYota wars....it would best if it is left to 'em!

    @sarosh_ather

    They are equally dheet my dear....they buy overpriced TOYota's....repair 'em with again over priced expensive parts and feel pissed off with a lower (balanced) priced Mitsu performs equally (or outperforms) their high and mighty LCs! But lets make 'em happy here as it is their thread .....happy motoring TOYota owners!

    Loose plastic panels is a problem of both Evos, whenever doing offroading speed runs, they just pop out, bonnet air intakes on both Evos had been repaired and later I glued them with silicon to keep them fixed, similarly the plastic wheel arches pop out frequently, resultantly, I tape them before hand to retain them even if they pop out during offroading, it is a genuine problem.

    Good points of Pajero like availability at much lower prices as compared to Toyota, abundance of Gen 1 and Gen 2 parts at cheaper prices than Toyota's comparable models and drive comfort is accepted, but Pajeros have flimsy plastic panels. In addition, Gen3 and Gen 4 Pajeros are known for their electronic problems and Gen 1 and Gen 2 engines are notorious for over heating problems. I faced it myself in Cholistan last year, trust me there was nothing wrong with the Gen 2 that I was driving.
