Wonderful car , love it

published

It is used as a daily driver, does offroading on the odd weekend , get it serviced regularly and on time . It has done 260000kms and I just changed the original water pump , not because it wasn't working ,but because I just put in a new timing belt. Amazing durability. Last Challenger made in Japan

Purchased in July 2013 for $5,000.

Good car but some improvements

published

Use the challenger as family commuter and some off road. The car gets used on a daily basis. The issues i have found is the car still uses a timing belt and the fact it has to replaced every 90,000kms. Car gets serviced every 6-12 months

Purchased in August 2017 for $27,560.

Don’t buy if you enjoy a safe drive

published

Wow, possibly the worst car I’ve ever owned. Sounded like a tractor, and handled like one. But I can live with that, it got me off road a bit. What is unforgivable is that when a car hit me at approx 60kph, hard enough to roll the challenger over its roof and on to the other side, NOT A SINGLE AIRBAG DEPLOYED. The car was under three years old. Having recovered from the surgery I needed, I now drive a Lexus - 450h and love it!!

2 wheel drive diesel

published

2WD. Huge problem with blowing black smoke and loss of power immediately after taking delivery purchased secondhand. Dealer refused refund.
Fair Trading involved but useless. Dealers only seemed capable of putting on computer and reporting no fault. Months of dispute.
Eventually a dealer Keystar Mitsubishi at Caboolture agreed to check and tighten everything found no fault caharged very reasonable $160 and problem has been solved
.Still, thirstier than expected around 17 litres per 100 kms towing a lihht caravan.
Have now travelled several thousand kms and pleased with vehicle.

2010 Challenger

published

we purchase new manual in 2010. Find economy good. We get 9l/100 travelling at 95 to 105. Sometimes better, sometimes worse depending on hills. With the camper it's12 to 14. We've done 173k travelling lots of tracks (Oodnadatta, Tanami, Birdsville etc etc) It's never missed a beat .
Now I would like an auto and with just a tad more power as our new camper is 1.5 T loaded. So reliable. Best value 4wd for the bucks. Any suggestions for a replacement with say 10% more power?

head issue

published

This has been a great car up until now that it looks to be having head issues. It got warm a limitless while ago but not boiling hot and is now using water and looks to have an oil like substance in the coolant
Should this be covered due to the recent recall for issues with this engine

Yep it's called a fulcrum bush. Can be a bit of a challenge to change. You can get them direct from Mitsi or about $40 from memory on eBay.
