Thank you Marshal regarding your expert advice on Nissan Patrol, I havent found any good Nissan so far, all looked shady to mee.
Lately I have seen couple of Mitsu Pajero, one I have seen today 2.5 L Turbo Diesel, 1991 model, 5 doors, It has got round front lights and a highroof. The guy was honest enough to tell me that the bonnet is re-painted, and engine is weak. He is demanding 5.5 lacs. According to him the car is all original and doesnt have any major accident or overturned.
I have noticed rust at edges specially around windscreen, above tyres etc. He suggested me to leave the paint as it because the jeep would be in the original condition and it doesnt matter, but due to rust it looks little ugly to me.
he also said that the engine needs to be overhauled or changed.
One interesting thing, he told me that the 2.4 liter diesel engine of Pajero is the same that is in Shahzore and the same parts that are available of Pajero say 20K will be available of Shahzore for 8K so its cheap to manage it. I dont know whether its true or not??
Pajero lovers and haters any suggestion? Should I buy it and then get its engine replaced or overhauled, I expect atleast 30-40 K in overhauling and around 70 K in replacement. Also I would like to get it repainted due to the rust factor?? If I would do it then I expect another 100-150 K on it and it will cost me around 650-700 K to own. Wondering, is it worth it??
