I am considering buying a SUV/4x4 and would really like some advice.
Basically,I want a vehicle which I can drive to far flung areas where there are no proper roads.I am not into serious offroading as a hobby but I want my vehicle to be a fairly good and sturdy offroader as to travel in rough areas.
I was considering Pajero,Toyota surf, Prado,
Here are the requirements:
1)Ideally should not be older than 1999-2000 model. I think my budget allows uptill 2005,2006 models.
2) Very Durable and reliable,should not give problems and should not require much maintenance. (keep in mind I travel to remote areas where a mechanic might not be available).
3)Manual transmission and diesel.
4)Should not give problems if driven for long distances in very hot and cold weather.(I heard that Pajero has issues when driven in hot weather for long periods.)
5)Does NOT have to be very comfortable or "nice-looking" or stylish interior.
6)Should be good for driving in sand in desert areas of Southern KPK eg lakki marwat,dera ismail khan.
7)Overall a good off-roader.
