The best car in the world
Bought this incredible car in 2015 it was a year old. We bought it as a family car and a highway cruiser and it has been amazing. Over the past 6 years we have only had one issue. It is extremely comfortable on the road and the 3.2 Diesel engine is punchy while getting very good fuel economy. This car is leaps and bounds better than the parado in lots of aspects.

This is my 8th Exeed I have owned. I keep buying them because they are so reliable. I do 25000klm a year towing an offroad hybrid van travelling Outback Australia on some of the counties roughest roads and it handles everything extremely well. I am sorry to see the end of the model I believe mid year

Best combination between Off-Road/ luxury / reliability
I bought my Pajero NS DID VRX in 2019, with 160k on the clock, I did 50k in one year, commuting to work and doing long road trips on the weekend, driving into water crossing, snow, and mud! Spent about AUD2k in servicing, including major service and manifold clean. If you are looking for a great off road vehicle, which is comfortable, and extremely reliable, look no further!

It grows on me!
I purchased my 2006 NM GLX 3.2 diesel Auto two years ago with 220K on the clock.

Solid, reliable & capable albeit not the most exciting or intimidating
Pajero owners cop a bit of ribbing & smirks from our 4wd brethren. Owners of the other 2 japanese wagons like to point out theirs are tougher & more hardcore whereas the euro luxury crowd look down at Mitsy as well heeled gentry may look down on a commoner. Which is Ok by us because these haughty opinions help keep Pajero pricing as family biased and affordable as they are. Easily the most pocket friendly of the truly offroad wagons, our Paj conquered the same rocky hill climbs, corrugations, water crossings & eroded 4wd tracks through Cape Yo...rk etc provided common sense prevails with wheel placement, machine empathy & you're not trying to rack up YouTube views with adrenaline stunts. The other 95% of the time the Paj is car like, manoeuvrable & civilised in the cities & burbs where most weekend warriors actually spend their time. Towing & touring capability handles all but oversize boats & vans, running costs on par with a large sedan & electronic gizmos are all there if not cutting edge. Downsides? Well the interior is more practical & functional than inspiring, diesel performs like a faithful workhouse than a roaring monster, less aftermarket accessories to spend $ on than other brands (tho Mrs thinks that's a good thing!), 2nd row seats bit hard & flat for my taste & enviro friendly paintwork scratches & marks more easily than the old 2 pack. Paj is probably not the market leader in any one vector but as an all round general purpose package she comfortably covers all the bases. 7 years & over 100kms trouble free reliability so far.

We use the Pajero mostly on weekends to go 4wding around Brisbane with the occasional trip to Inaminka, Birdsville, Fraser and Moreton Islands. Found this Pajero to be extremely reliable and will go anywhere outback. The only issue we have ever had was trying to head North to South at Ngala Rocks on Fraser and it simply could not get through the pass. In all fairness it had not rained for a long period of time and the soft sand (very powdery) was half way up my calf. It also got us out of trouble when we had to take it over Ngala rock...s. While scary for the driver (me staring at the sky) the Pajero handled the steep climb with ease. Although due to the the angle and despite the lift kit, I broke the rear tail light but secured a generic one for only $30.00 and was very easy to fit myself. Car serviced every 10K without fail. Apart from servicing and a new battery no issues. If we had the time would drive this car around Australia. On the open road very comfortable and powerful and sips the Diesel. Off road, particularly in soft sand, it can be very heavy on fuel which is understandable. If you find a good low K one like we did grab it.

We bought a 2005 pajero off my parents, we have owned it for 3.5 years now. It has over 300,000kms on the clock & hasn’t missed a beat. We are so pleased with this car, great family car, good for 4WD-ing & towing, also not bad for cruising around town. The fuel economy is ok considering the size of the motor & weight of the car, I consistently get around 11.5L/100km with mostly town driving.
We have just this year spent a bit replacing bits & pieces including the suspension, but this is to be expected for a 15 year old vehicle.
My only gripe i...
Purchased in December 2016.
After requesting a 60,000 klm service for my vehicle i have been told by the dealer and MMAL that there is a requirement to have the valve clearance adjusted every 30,000klm at a cost of roughly $1600 for the total service with the adjustment costing roughly $1,000 due to time taken and parts required. If you review their own data online it does not say that this is a requirement at all. It is listed as INSPECTION only. This is either misleading or false advertising as i know of NO other diesel that this is a requirement to ensure the warranty of the vehicle. Poor MMAL Poor.

Tough, reliable, nice to drive.
I have had this car for 5 years, very reliable, pretty good on diesel, regularly tow a 2.5 tonne caravan. Regularly drive off-road in Victorian high country. It does it all with no effort, smooth reliable dependable. Feels powerful and the auto transmisdion dies it all with no effort. Have had no mechanical failures except cracked intercooler from bottoming out off-road, my fault.

Experience with a petrol Pajero
I have had a 2010 3.8L auto Pajero for 16 months now. I was looking for a diesel Prado, mainly for the 150L fuel tank. When I came across the Pajero I was impressed by the interior space. The second row seats are a slightly knees up proposition. The third row seats are removed and the 90L seat well used for storage. I only have one passenger and do not need them.
The engine is very smooth. Pulls well making overtaking a breeze. It does not have the low down torque of modern turbo diesels but is good for a petrol engine. It actually produces m...ore torque at 2000rpm than a non turbo 4.2L Landcruiser diesel and a lot quieter doing it. The main down side is the fuel consumption. On the highway it uses 12 to 13L/100km, rising to 16L/100km in the suburbs. Offroad in 4L it is 25L/100km The high consumption is not a huge concern as I only go out once a month on club outings. Yearly kms would be around 5000 km tops. I feel this is balanced against cheaper and less frequent servicing. Buying 92 RON petrol on the cheapest days also helps. I would have liked a locking diff (not standard on petrol Pajeros). The traction control does a good job and I am more than satisfied with off road performance. When I put in an aftermarket locking differential the traction control will still be retained unlike the OEM locking diff. My vehicle has a totally random beeping noise which is annoying but becoming less frequent with time. That is my only real negative with the vehicle. It drives like a big luxury car with plenty of power delivered with the minimum of fuss. If I had to replace the vehicle it would most likely be an Exceed Pajero

Phenomenal car feels solid!
We love our Pajero, drives for hours and hours without skipping a beat and is just so comfortable on long distances. Equally capable off road. Mitsubishis are generally called the poor cousins of the Toyotas but nothing poor about the Pajero and you don't pay unreasonable amounts to own one! I was looking for a Prado when a friend offered to let me check out his car and it was instant love. Fuel efficiency is also not bad for a 3.2 diesel and now that we've had our baby the baby seat is definitely going in this one it's solid and feels really safe!
Questions & Answers
Have a 2011 diesel Pajero. Currently in the old telegraph trail. When through water up to bonnet no worries. Been driving all good. Come to a small creek that was just below the bumper. Car almost immediately stopped. When towed out the car would start no problems after a couple of minutes. The engine was dry as water was not that high. Same thing happened again at another shallow. When out of water there is no problem. Taken to mechanic at bamaga. He did not have any idea what was going on. Vehicle has a snorkel and diff breathers. Any ideas.
