Overall extremely happy, however !!!!
Extremely poor tyre wear on tyres, only got 30,000kms from factory fitted set, apparently they are "sport tyres" with a softer compound... and this is why they wore so quickly. Also Noticed it feels funny from time to time between 100-110kmh on the highway, wife doesn't notice it just me, but I'm a car guy so it stands out, I had seen quite a few complaints about this but have learnt to deal with it since its my wife's car and it does not seem to be a failure issue. Also when you have two child seats on each side of back seat middle seat is r...eally quite skinny and squishy for that passenger. However all that said, this car is fantastic.... best value for money, best interior in its class and very capable off roader, would 100% recommend. Oww and the stereo could be a little lowder, the wife and I like to pump it up and its lacking a little.

Amazing car..great drive and feature rich
I upgraded from my challenger PB 2012 model. The Challenger is a good vehicle, had no complaints...Was attracted to the 2019 Pajero Sport as it is different, doesnt look or feel truck like even though based on Triton...wanted the 7 seat option, leather power seats, spoiler on the rear, dual zone climate control so Gls is the sweet spot...havent been offroad but driving in the city and across town with some rural driving i have been very impressed at how easy and comfortable it is to drive and despite one or two comments read about engine noise,...it almost sounds like you are driving a petrol model...for a diesel it is very quiet and smooth...a little bit of lag, common on all diesels, but the 8 speed auto is very responsive and handles the engine extremely well as it runs up and down to select the right gear for the demand. The engine is willing and not overly noisy. I have returning fuel consumption of between 7L - 8.3 L 100/klm and overall combined average is 8.2 L / 100klm. The seats are very comfortable, adaptive cruise control and the media entertainment and phone system is very good, runs Android Auto, rides well, maybe a little bit soft but generally a very smooth quiet drive. Handles well for a big vehicle..only negatives is the rear camera is offset so image takes some getting used to, the dab radio sometimes "tunes out" and says "no data" but seems to reset itself after a while...the led headlights are excellent on low beam and pretty good high beam..a light bar will further improve the high beams. As a big family station wagon that can go offroad, tow up to 3.1 tonne, has electronic trailer anti sway, this vehicle in my view is excellent and well worth considering.. Have read lots of comments about the rear end lights which seem to be polarising to some, but they are a great safety feature and not a deal breaker, great looking modern designed vehicle. Mitsubishi have made a great vehicle, low service and maint costs as well..Love driving my car, its a keeper for sure! Update...now more than 3 months in...have had no problems with the car...saw one reviewer with adaptive cruise control problems but mine works a treat and is great feature...got used to the offset camera but overall no regrets and love driving my car as its very comfortable and very smooth, love the seat comfort and its very quiet for a diesel in this class. Take one for a test drive...you might be pleasantly surprised!! Update: 11000 k,s in and hasnt missed a beat..tows a trailer and my caravan very well..have had it on some rough terrain...through clay mud and over rocky hilly terrain..handled very well...great on gravel roads and handles well..love this car!

Not the best car for child seats
What I like: the interior is pretty modern and decent for its price range, I love it. Performance is ok, I have no problem with it as I haven't taken it off-road.
What I don't like, to the point where I want to trade it in for another car is the 2nd row seat. The child seat anchors are at the roof, just right above the 3rd row. I thought I could live with it. Not until we actually had to use the 3rd row. It would be very unfortunate for the ones in the 3rd row as it obstructive/distracting. Imagine going for an hour with the car seat straps ...right in front of your face. To make things worse, the middle seat belt of the 2nd row is also coming from the roof. Again it obstructs vision, it is a little distracting and in my opinion, very annoying and unpleasant to the eyes. Now I am back on the market to find better alternatives. I love this car but this is a 7-seater. I bought this because I have a need to carry 7 people at times. Having straps running across the roof is just a result of poor design in this day and age.
Best car ever!!
Big deal from Mitsubishi Motors! I’m using the 2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport few months ago, and I’m impressed so far. Spacious 7 seater model, beautiful interior. Very economic on fuel, especially on highway. Around 8L/100km City: ~10.5L
Sound system is good , 4X4 abilities are impressing.
This vehicle is the best for the price you can get, recommended to everyone!
Loving our Pajero Sport
Whole family is pretty wrapped in our new Pajero Sport! It's classy good looks around town combined with us enjoying taking it along the beach for the day and along bush tracks camping means we can enjoy the cooler months of the year in North QLD more than ever. Kids love being able to control air-conditioning in all 5 rear seats. Legroom has been fine for our family of 5 with teenagers. May get a bit squishy with all of us in car as they grow.
Great for towing the boat too although I did have to buy an extendable tow bar so I could ...open the back hatch of the car with the boat attached. 7 seater comes in very handy with three kids' friends always tagging a long on outings. When just camping with one son I was able to put all seats down and use all of the back of the car for tent, tables, stove and esky etc., I love the acceleration ability when driving too. There is no lag in power and speed which I thought a 4 cylinder diesel might have. I wanted to get second battery put in the vehicle to run fridge / freezer for camping but unfortunately auto electrician advised that there is no room under bonnet for second battery. My only other criticism of the vehicle is that driving around town I thought the fuel consumption might be better. Everytime I fill up for around town driving, the dash tells me I will get 560 km for a tank whereas I was expecting a good 100 km more. Also the fuel gauge says that I have 60 km left but always I drive another 10 km and it tells me I have to fill up immediately. a bit misleading and annoying. Many pros of the car however outweigh the few negatives. I think the 15000 km / 12 month servicing and the 5 year warranty is a big attraction too. I am really enjoying this vehicle and I'll be keeping this vehicle for quite a few years I think !
