As the title suggests, I am looking for some advice/feedback on purchasing either a Pajero (94-98 2.8 Intercooler) or a Surf (96-98). The primary considerations for purchasing the vehicle are as follows (in that order)
- Family vehicle, primarily for city driving with the occasional trip to Lahore (via motorway)
- Fuel Economy
- Easier maintenance (Cannot afford to spend 'quality' time with mechanics every weekend)
- Resale ( However, plan to keep the vehicle for at-east 2 years)
I have been advised by some that Pajero's have issues with their engines, particularly at consistently high speeds (such as the motorway) and its parts/other maintenance is quite expensive. However, I have found it to be far more luxurious than the other jeeps. On the other hand, Surf delivers consistent performance but is lacking in comfort though its parts are available relatively easier.
Having said that, I will appreciate any feedback/comments that will make my decision easier. Pls feel free to add any parameter that I should consider that I might have missed. Also, if anyone has a suitable vehicle for sale, pls PM me. Thanks in advance!
PS-- I apologize if there is a similar thread elsewhere else but I did use the search option before posting but could'nt find anything.
