A reliable vehicle

published

We decided on a Pajero when we purchased a 19 ft caravan, as research showed its towing capacity was great. We are very pleased with all aspects of this vehicle. It is what I would class as 'sturdy & reliable', a comfortable ride, plenty of space, and no problems. Haven't tested it off road but would assume that there would not be a worry in this regard.

2014 MY15 NX Exceed

published

Brilliant car, has 75k on the clock and drives like new. It tows my 2.2T caravan with ease. Strong powerful diesel. High quality interior fittings and excellent overall build quality. This model is still made in Japan. Have previously owned an NM Pajero Petrol and I got 250,000ks before selling it. It never missed a beat. The NX pajero handles better, tighter turning circle and better fuel evonomy. Awesome vehicle.

Just what you need to get you anywhere

published

Lovely to drive. Very secure on the road. Steering wheel adjustment is the only negative I have found in my year of owning my Paero.
Taking rear seats out makes the back lighter but causes a rattle. Diesel is certainly economical without being over noisy. Servicing is no more expensive thus far.
Would recommend over alot of these alternative soft roaders.

Why spend thousands more when this does the same job

published

Now on our 2nd one, 3.2 turbo diesel. Pulls our 21ft van with ease. Fuel without the van 7.1 ltrs per 100. With the van on as low as 13.1. Reliability & comfort is excellent. If you wish to go scrub bashing go & buy a big 4wd with full chassis. If you want a good reliable family car/tow vehicle where you stick to the bitumen,look no further than a pajero. You will save money & have a vehicle that is a pleasure to drive with all the bells & whistles.

Old school style and reliability

published

The fuel consumption is good being diesel despite being a weighty car.
On road it eats up the miles effortlessly.
Comfortable good handling and braking .suprisingly powerful engine for highway running and towing. Off road it is a competant performer. Allow for correct tyre pressures and it handles most obstacles well.
Vision all round is good being an older style body.
Interior in functional if not a bit dated in design.
The sound system phone integration sucks .it is complicated and just silly.
The reversing camera function is very handy.
In summary a better choice than a soft roader.
A very good value for money package compared to its major rival.

Purchased in May 2014 at Mitsubishi Cessnock for $54,000.00.

great BUT..... the rust

published

the car drives well on and off the road, it is what i brought it for and it does a great job, the dash is very dated against today's models, and have found the running costs reasonable, that is why I brought a diesel, though the service cost is a bit higher.
The main problem is that the doors have a known problem of rusting, there was apparently a let down somewhere with quality control, I have not been able to have it fixed properly, the only real fix accounting to my search is for the doors to be reskinned, all I am offered is a paint job where the chances of it coming back are very high. SOOO if you are considering buying one check under all the door rubbers.

Tow power

published

Towing caravan and boat trailers and this Pajero is doing its job pretty well. Mitsubishi said it can actually tow up to 3000 kg. Its also great for long distance travels and the engine is quiet compared to my last one. Prob is GPS I had to buy a separate one also when towing there's really no way to open the back door.

Can't fault it!

published

2nd Pajero in 10 years. Put 200000 km on the last one and now 31000 in just over 12 months on this one. Tow a large caravan with ease however do feel it is a bit soft in the rear so fitting air bags. Also a bit thirstier then the previous NP but has more 'go' then the NP. Rides more like a car than a Jeep or Prado/Landcruiser. Best value for the money.

published

After 72000klm's I have had to replace the brakes and rotors for a second time. If towing make sure that your brakes are heavy duty otherwise be prepared.
