ACC service required and check DPF system alert

I had the alerts ACC service required and check DPF system alert the reason this happened in my case was due to a tear in the engine hose. Hence car was not accelerating. Nothing to do with battery. Am providing this as an experience and if it can assist any one facing the same issue out there. Since the mobile mechanic who I first consulted advised changing battery did not help and instead left me 500+ out of pocket with out any proper diagnosis or result.
Hope this post is helpful. Show details

VG Vehicle

Second paj.sport I have owned VG overall ,shiny trim around steering wheel needs dumbing down(sun glare)so black texta cures that.GPS is very ordinary possibly the worst feature by far ,so poor that we won't use it,just use the phone if we have reception,otherwise use paper maps if out of phone coverage.My wife has a Kona the GPS unit in it is way ahead and easy to use. Show details

2016 Exceed

I have issues with my DPF. I had it cleaned by the local Mitsubishi dealer and 5 months later the light is back on along with my engine light. I mostly drive 10km trips twice a day but go camping approx once a month (200km?) and the odd 1hr journey 3 times a month? Am I not driving to it's needs? Show details

Car has issues

Had a 2017 pajero sport exceed since new, had some serious issues with it. Had a $13k bill for a fuel system repair that was not covered under warranty. 6 weeks after getting it back from that, it's just lost power again (DPF service, just happened today). Had to have the front seat replaced because it got a hole in it (warranty), had to get the wiring harness replaced for the seat warmers (warranty). All of the switch gear is fading. Not a car I'd recommend. Show details

Issues when going to lower gear

I love my 2018 pajero exceed purchased new .July 2018
Except for the horrendous noise it makes when in lower or trying to go to lower gear usually at 60 kms
I have been back to the dealer from the very first week and continually back to them they have had senior technicians test it from Mitsubishi .
Say nothing can do about it as Mitsubishi changed the computer system for the new 2018 model
And apparently no one else in the World has complained about it
To stop the noise we have to accelerate and then it sometimes stops .does anyone else have this issue? Show details

Great buy

After having issues with a Nissan xtrail, I decided to move it on and upgrade to a pajero. I am so impressed, with the car feactures, including birds eye view cameras. It travels very sturdy and smooth, and for a Triton motor it runs extremely quiet. The 8 speed auto transmission is a great upgrade and happy I no longer have a cvt transmission. With all diesel cars like these there will always be a little pedal lag, so I purchased a throttle controller through Hikeit, and it has done wonders. I recommend this car, easy to drive, very very low road noise, and for the price, and safety for my family, it's a must to consider Show details

Loved Driving It

Bought my PS Exceed in July 2018. It was a BIG change for me, having driven a little Honda Jazz for so long. Took a while to get used to it, but I did. Now I love driving it. A few minor things that I don't like, but that is just things that I find annoying. No rear/hatch door electric or remote closure is one that needs addressing for this vehicle, considering its height and price point. I also find the location of the drivers cup holder awkward. Other than this, it is great!!! No issues at all. We haven't taken it "off road" as yet, but have towed a 24' caravan which it managed with ease. Lovely to drive long distance and the space in the back with the 3rd row of seats folded is AMAZING. Would not hesitate to recommend it. Show details

Great compact rugged SUV

Love it - it tows the caravan so well.

Fully optioned with most extras. It has up to date technology available without a high price tag. Rides a little rough but to be expected in a 4wd vehicle of this nature.

Electronic parking sensors a bit sensitive (go off when sitting in traffic). Android car play doesnt work with our phones so no GPS.

Hand brake issues, anybody had them?

Is any one else having issues with the adaptive cruise control? Quite frequently in adaptive cruise when the adaptive part is working keeping you a safe distance from the slower moving vehicle in front, there will be a beep and the adaptive cruise will lose its tracking lock and accelerate. I have captured this on video once when it was happening very frequently. I have taken it back to the dealer twice now, once leaving it with them for a week and they couldn't find any issues. As the adaptive cruise was a major reason why I chose this vehicle, I will be looking to trade soon. My wife's two year older Subaru Outback has adaptive cruise and has been flawless.
