    Default Firsthand experience with different SUVs

    Respected members,
    A fellow member asked me to share my experience of my recent SUVs, pros and cons. Currently the thread will be about a Nissan Patrol 1992(Y60) and Mitsubishi Pajero Gen3 DiD 3.2L. Feel free to express your opinions and ask questions
    Firsthand experience with different SUVs -1531385Firsthand experience with different SUVs -1531384

    Starting with the Nissan:
    Pros:
    1)comparatively cheaper than competition(80 series Land Cruiser, 1992 Prado, 1992 Pajero)
    2)Quite economical(8 local and 10 long) I had the diesel non-turbo, manual one, 12V
    3)Immense Power and very comfortable
    4)Parts are easily available
    5) Air-con is chilling, I couldn't leave it on full in the July heat
    6) Completely Mechanical, less complications

    Cons:
    1)Adults can't sit comfortably in the second compartment, no leg room at all
    2)The turning radius is too long, annoyingly long
    3)Well compared to a toyota(little resale)

    Overall a lovely buy, but the lack of leg space is unacceptable, the low roof has that fault fixed. Besides this, in its price, nothing can beat it, atleast not off road.

    Coming to the Gen3 Pajero(DiD 3.2L)

    Pros:
    1) Drives like a car, very comfortable
    2) Ample space for 7 people
    3) 5 speed auto, seemless shift
    4) Electronic 4wd, can be engaged while moving
    5) Trip-tonic gearbox, fun both on and off-road

    Cons:
    1) Requires a lot care and attention, as most things are electronic, not everyone can work on it
    2) Spares are quite expensive
    3) Low resale
    4) Expensive spares, was too scared to put it to any major off-roading test but was quite comfortable in minor off roads

    This is a perfect family SUV for the people who mostly use it on paved roads, drives like a car, looks beautiful and has ample space. But just remember to stay away from faulty ones, once they go wrong, they can be a huge pain in the rear end, HUGE! .

    Any questions and queries are welcomed and will be answered at the earliest possible response

    I have always loved Nissan patrols/safaris. Specially the y60. Never thought about it would have like room issues for second compartment I mean like it's a huge vehicle.

    Well sir, I had never imagined that too. But after I bought it, I sat in the back the following night and had gone in a state of miniature shock. Tried a lot of things to fix/adjust it without permanently altering the original but to no avail. The only way to convince you is to suggest you to try it yourself because this is something beyond logic till where design is concerned

    that some serious myth busting regarding the Patrol i.e. economical, parts availability and tight leg room.
    if you get off your ride and don't look back at it, you have bought the wrong one !

    Do note that the economy was due to it being a manual non-turbo vehicle, the turbo auto version is probably heavier on fuel

    Believe me sir, after you sit in this, the leg space of an 80 series land cruiser feels like the space from an elongated S Class Mercedes
