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

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! Show details

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! Show details

Best car ive ever owned

Good family car
Drives amazing
Never had any issues with it
So spacious & good for towing our van
& 4wding
Has built in DVD player, heated seats & all these cool little extras. It's comfortable & I couldn't recommend a Pajero more. When / if I ever upgrade it will be to a newer pajero best car we have ever owned

We have big 4wd wheels on it which are rather noisy & a 2inch lift kit. Need to put a bullbar on before we head around aus Show details

Great comfortable 4wd with grunt

I have the diesel version. She sounds like a small truck, but you get used to it. It’s a very comfortable 4wd that drives like a sedan. Easy to operate the 4wd and diff lock from inside the vehicle.

The radio in mine is terrible and it’s quite ridiculous that in 2006 they couldn’t include a USB socket. They have been around for ten years when this thing was built.

Awesome 4wd...underrated

I have had a pajero turbo diesel in manuals and autos for the last six years. .

1. Plenty power.

2. Fuel economy. ..I generally drive from inala brisbane to Sydney cbd in one tank of diesel

3. Very spacious

4. Done heaps of 4wd in it...done Stockton beach..rainbow beach and noosa..

Has 3000000km on it and unstoppable. ..no extra work ever needed..just oil and brakes

With autos...egr will need to be cleaned at app 200000km..cost $300 and place a blocker..

Love That Pajero

Owned my NS Diesel Exceed for almost 2 years now and its been awesome. Love all the great luxury features. One thing I would like to do is change the whole suspension as its a bit too stiff for regular road use. Overall its a very capable 4wd and looks gorgeous too.

Great drive but watch the DPF

The Pajero has great visibility, is great around the city and easy parking. Off road (soft sand) and it performs very well. Buyers of second hand diesel Pajeros need to be aware of the DPF.

Mitsi don't really have a handle the issue. My car had less than 130,000km when the DPF failed. The repair bill was more than $6000.

The DPF fail brings an otherwise great vehicle comes to a standstill.

2008 Mitsubishi Pajero diesel went into limp mode and traction control light and engine light is on, cant go fast enough for auto to change gears

Could be any number of things, you need to get the error code. I believe places like Supercheap can do this, but will almost certainly have to go to a mechanic.
