    Question Mitsubishi Pajero Petrol or Diesel???

    AOA Pakwheelers!

    My father recently sold his ride, a 1999 LC VX ltd,and is currently driving a Toyota surf that he borrowed from a friend for trial purpose. But he doesn't seem satisfied with it. So today ran into the local market and came through many Mitsubishi Pajero 2000+ vehicles in the market. the have some mean looks and options. I just want to know that which ones a better option, the 3.2 diesel version or the 3.5 GDI petrol version? And is it really worth buying? if not what would be a suitable alternative?

    P.S my father hates the 2003+ Prado shape.

    I was just referring to the shape when I mentioned GDI. It is kind of a showroom term.

    I would again say, petrol version is lots better than a diesel.
    There have been very technical reasons, logics given.
    I would keep it simple. Petrol engines ask for less maintenance. Those jeeps can be used for long period hence less risk of local ustaads playing with them.
    Diesel has first and basic disadvantage of bad fuel. Hi-octane makes up for bad quality petrol but what will you do with diesel? Mechanics ruin those engines.

    LC is a totally different league.
    I won't advise a down model MB

    @umarkhan1 & @Haroon_Tarar Come on guys. I'm trying to buy one of them Pajeros. This Little battle of your's is Playing a Full on Grand Finale in my mind. I still have no idea which one is better. I wish I could have bought either of em. As I can afford two of them with just a slight increase in my budget, But the Pajero doesn't seem to be a ride worth spending 5 mill on. I looked for the Rover, and it turns out that the shape I kinda found attractive was for 8 million. Sure I can't buy that space shuttle unless I join Politics or find some hidden treasure or something like that, you know what? Nobody always get what he/she wants.

    If you are leaning towards gen3 pajero, try to go for 2002 + models. That was when traction control was introduced.

    Hahaha Muzamil brother,
    The best one is which you like. A car is like a wife/gf. You see her everyday, be with her, spend time with her, lover her, adore her, treat her roughly and the list goes on.
    Jis p dil aata hy le lo. What worse could happen? 2-4 lac kha jaaye gi? Dil to khush ho jaye ga.
    I am naturally going to advocate the one I like.

    Sir, I have used both the vehicles, in petrol and in diesel. The petrol one is fun, quick yet very very thirsty and it has to be run with high octane to run completely problem free. As for the diesel version, its torquey and economical. It requires a certain treatment where they add a chemical to the fuel tank and its good to go for 50k problem free. My advise is, if you want to have fun on road, petrol(given you can afford to run on high octane), off-road, go for diesel

    Yeah Bro! We figured that buying a 7 years old Tundra is a better option than a 13 year old Mitsubishi. At least the common parts are interchangeable with a LC, like the plugs, air filter, brake pads, and a regular oil change wouldn't cost more than 7-7.5k. And the purchase itself was a realtime bargain deal. The owner is a family friend and we know that he hasn't used the tundra much, the odo still has 33k on it. The only down side is the LHD, but our driver has worked as a cabbie in UAE for 4 years and till I get used to it, he is the one to take me anywhere.

    The fact is that we own a Gas station near our village, and we are about to crack a deal for another one in karachi too, so it's no big deal. :p Alhamdulillah Fuel has never been a problem for us.

    Look on the bright side.
    If its village road, bingo overtake time. The dude sitting on the right hand is the one to die first.

    Most village local roads are hardly wide enough for a tundra to drive on it.
    Baaki traffic kithe jaye gi.

    It surely is going to be tough.

    On the other hand, it is a monster to drive.

    Kuch paane k liye kuch khona parta hy.
    Tundra is a lovely choice.
    Allah naseeb kre
