Refernce to my previous thread
Please note that I am very much confused. I need expert’s advice on the below mentioned concerns:
I need a SUV to fulfill the following demands with a max range 600k also keep in view that I will posted in Gujrat & spare /mechanic availability.
Utilization of the SUV:
1-I need a family car for 4 adults & two kids.
2-In season I will go for hunting like Teetar or duck shoots.
3-In summer I use to go to Northern Areas Like, Naran, Babu Sir Pass or Skardu Deo Sai etc.
4-Bein posted in Gujrat I will visit to Islamabad & Lahore at least once a month to visit my parents & In laws. More over few rough terrains to visit my clients in rural area.
5-I got a 50 Hp Fiber glass motor boat which is 14 ft long & weights equal to a Suzuki Meharn.I also have to pull her behind that SUV for Suck shootings & water sports purpose.
Now coming to the point few people suggest me Mitsubishi Pajero (5 Door) Model either exceed or simple turbo wagon. There is a problem. All the Pajero's I saw are body change mostly with lots of suspicious about their chassis punching.
More over Pajero's are heavy on fuel.I am entitled for 250 Liter Diesel a month from my bank. If it crosses the limit rest will be from my pocket.
Advantages of Pajero is that ist a big SUV with all necessary luxury like A/c, Power steering & breaks, Sun Roof & its 8 seater.
Now for Sporatge its up model in low price. Comfortable or not I have no previous experience. But heard that its engine is not reliable. I saw few people swap original Kia Sportage engines with Toyota 3c Turbo Diesel.
You can also suggest me any other vehical other than above two keeping in mind I am posted as a Branch manager in Gujrat so please also keep in view that SUV will be respectable as well as presentable.
My previous experience in 4x4 are Willys Mb, Willys M-38, Cj-5 (wrangler Shape), Daihatsu Rocky (3 Door).Mean to say I have previous experince of Jeeping but now I need a SUV not a hard core four wheeler as utilization is already mentioned above.
Please reply on your earliest.
