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

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

A Great all Round Vehicle. I have now had three

I have had
three Pajero's and not one has failed. A few flat tyres, broken windscreen and a blown shock absorber on the NT RX Diesel
The cars have been used for work and since retiring for touring both on and off road with much of the off road in Northern Australia
The cars have followed the service schedules but with the diesel I tend to change the engine oil and filters more frequently, especially after a long hard run. Apart from the odd occasion I have used the same mechanic for 20 years and as he also owns a Pajero I have had no worries with him. If the brake pads need changing he rings me, if the injectors are up for service he rings me> All up I am considering a new Pajero but await 2020 to see what is on offer Show details

Great 4WD

I have owned an NT GL 2011 Pajero Diesel Auto for 6 years it is used for commuting ,holidays/trips & all types of 4WDing & is regularly serviced

& the only problems so far have been a leaking sump fixed under Warranty & the rear door strut siezed … It is great on Fuel & has plenty of power … Easily one of the best 4WDs I have owned !!

Excellent outback tourer

We live in the Pilbara and the Pajero is ideal. 2011 model, and no major issues apart from a starter motor and the odd recall. Easy to service and work on. Have been to some pretty remote places and back with no dramas. Looking forward to buying a newer model.

Great capable 4x4 well built for Australian conditions

Great capable 4x4 well built for Australian conditions. We don't really take it off road but on a few occasions it took us through rough tracks in Litchfield NP, river crossings in Kimberley and a beach or two. Little bit thirsty when towing a caravan but you would be too pulling a 2 ton brick. Rear Difflock is there just in case but I never had to use it.

good for long trips

Overall a good car but thirsty af. Have the top of the range model otherwise don't even bother. Does its job very as well as would a 4X4: everyday use, towing, rough conditions. Transmission may jerk at lower speeds e.g. stop start traffic.What i would like is that even though there's bluetooth connectivity, you can't play music through it - only answer calls which defeats the purpose of a bluetooth system.

Best family car!

We went from a Kluger to a pajero. Havnt regretted at all! Runs smoothly, so reliable! Spacious for a family of 4 and a decent sized dog! DVD player works a treat for the kid, especially with the long drives down south with the kids! We go on long drives economic with fuel! Don't think we will ever switch from the pajero, only to upgrade in models!

Hi guys
I have a clunking noise which appear to be from the rear diff.i here it when going from drive to reverse and vise versa and also while slowing down and it selects first gear.
I've had ARB install lockers thinking this would fix the problem only to tell me the diff member mounts were stuffed. After having pedders replace them the problem is still there.
I'm pulling my hair out try to find this noise and have spent over $6000 to end up at the same place.
And advice would de appreciated.......

Hi. I have some issues with my Pajero 3.5 2011. There's noise while launching the car. The noise is not permanent. I hear it some days while don't hear it some days at all. First i thought there was something with the transfer box which was checked afterwards to be ok. I'm really worried about the noise coming from the rear right side of the car. It sounds like a little stone stuck between the wheel and support disc. I've got the car tested at the service and was told that the car was ok despite the master also heard the noise while test driving the car. Service still insists on the opinion that there cannot be a serious problem even if there's any. Please advise and share your relevant experience. Thank you
