I love my Pajero!!!!

I don’t know where to start with this thing. I bought it a few months back and have not looked back since. I absolutely love this rig. The possibilities are endless.

Raw, Tough and Simple

A no frills 4wd that gets straight to the point. City driving is a pleasure but off road is where it belongs. Loves a challenge and doesn't seem phased when under pressure. A highly underestimated vehicle that continues to perform time and time again. I have tuned mine to extract the hidden power that Mitsubishi was too shy to give us. But we turned into a grunting gorilla that climbs, pushes and dominates it's terrain. Tow, city drive, beach drive , extreme off roading, it doesn't matter. Build quality is tough in all aspects and proves to be a mechanical complex unit. Change the oil and filters every 5000 klms and it will go and go and go. I had no issues with mine, I look after it and it's proved to be very reliable. Show details

Solid reliable vehicle

Had mine for 5 years, bought it at 150000 and now at 270000. It drives like a car, not a truck, a pleasure to own. Diesels are expensive to service, but it gets good fuel economy. Still looks good despite being 15years old, even had a guy think it was brand new. I've done several long trips towing a van, including a half lap of 16000kms. Great support from the user community.

Can last a long time, there is an owner who has done a million kilometres in theirs, without changing the engine. Show details

Great all round vehicle

Great tow vehicle for caravan and very comfortable to drive at all times. I tow a 21ft caravan with ease and it has been reliable. I have it serviced as per the logbook but that can be a bit pricey if done by the dealer. Show details

Robust, no-nonsense motoring. It goes everywhere I want to go

Purchased second-hand in 2017 with a ridiculous amount of kilometres on the clock due to the previous owner's work across country New South Wales. But it has turned out to be an excellent purchase. It has, so far at least, been robust. The mechanic says that, provided you keep them regularly serviced, these machines just keep going and going. Currently around 300,000km on the clock and hoping it will go another 100,000 to 200,000 kilometres. I've replaced the odd thing here and there, but never anything urgent (i.e. nothing catastrophic).

They're not for people who want all the mod cons. They're pretty spartan inside and it's a no-nonsense vehicle. But on road or off, it does its job. Show details

What an awesome car to travel in. Love my Pajero

My Pajero is my source of income and the way I transport my family around the town. From work, using to transport my clients, school, shopping, beach, road trips the choice is Endless. Such a reliable vehicle and keeps my family safe. Great car for my kids learning to drive with the reversing camera, heated seats, diesel yet quiet for a diesel. Great fuel consumption, especially Highway Kms. Great high level giving you a clearance clear view in the road. All the mod-cons you’d expect, Cruze control, sensor windscreen wipers, Apple car play, electric seats, fog lights, climate control the list is endless. We love our Pajero. Show details

Simple, efficient and no non-sense

I have owned this car from 2017 and have been using it as a daily drive with periodic off-roading. It has clocked 112k kms this month. While this may not be the most advanced 4wd option in the market, it more than makes up with its reliability and toughness for off-road adventures without trading off its performance on the tarmac. Absolutely no issues this far and a trust worthy partner in my adventures.
Such a shame that it has been retired! Show details

Best car

Have owned our Nt RX Pajero for 10 years since new. Has 240000km on clock and have never had a single problem with it. It has towed a caravan throughout outback NT, QLD, NSW and SA and was perfect. My daily ride and very comfortable. 7 seats has been very handy with kids. My L and P plate kids prefer to drive the Pajero rather than our other car a 2019 Mazda 6. Happy to keep the Pajero for another 10 years! Show details

Great for cruising and towing

After using other makes for years decided to try a Pajero.
Have had it for about 5 years now.
Its great for towing and cruising.
Its ok for soft off roading but wouldn't recommend it for serious off road terrain.
Its comfortable and has options that others don't have which help when cruising.
The on the run 4 wheel engage option is a real bonus as there is no LSD.
The rear diff lock is also an excellent option and does help if on slippery terrain - providing you have suitable tyres.
It would be nice if the rear windows went all the way down. Show details

NM-NP PAJERO

I found my 2003 Pajero being a 4x4, ultra reliable. Heaps of features for its age, plenty of storage compartments, plenty of room. And the Hi-Low manual gear selector, superb for any road condition you'll encounter. The 3.5 litre has plenty of torque for towing your caravan or boat while comfortable to drive, I've found it great on road and off road for me. I'd definitely buy another. Show details

Peter · Pajero NT (2008-2011)

My 20113.2 Diesel Pajero has now done 275k Km and just developed a clunking noise when driving. coasting at any speed is okay until I press the power on and the clunk sounds , take the power off and it sounds again. some people have advised that their rear drive shaft had been replaced and the problem still exists. I have had some bushes replaced each side as they did need replacing, the car rides better but the sound is still there. Any ideas would be welcome, thanks..Peter
