Detailed Mitsubishi Pajero Review

What's Good?

This is by far the only SUV that still sports a very contemporary look besides the fact of its prowess, lends mute testimony to the fact of its worldwide success and capabilities. Although the domestically available variant had been significantly compromised by virtue of its pricing, and local representation, there is no getting away from the fact that this is a REAL SUV in every sense of the term. Its build quality is evident in the fact that I have still maintained my vehicle in a pristine condition, where other than a change of color necessitated by my need of a fresh look, the vehicle is in an absolutely original condition. Moreover this is the vehicle I use on a regular basis for all my intercity trips where Reliability, Stability and Comfort are of paramount importance.

What can improve?

The only areas that I would look at, and those that were unavailable at the time of its manufacture, are a Common Rail Technology for improved Fuel Efficiency and aesthetic gizmos like HID and LED Lights. Strange I cite Common Rail Technology for improved Fuel efficiency considering the fact that New concept SUV's like the Fortuner, Santa Fe & Captiva all deliver pretty much the same efficiency +/- 1 Km. Whilst their reliability is much to be desired basis the fact that they depend more on sensitive electronics as against Time Tested Mechanics...!!!

Overall Comments

Despite its contemporary looks, the Mitsubishi Pajero (At least the Original Japanese one that I own) looks every bit a Rugged SUV with a very commanding Driving position

Despite being an absolute SUV it comes adorned with warmth and all the Frills and Fancies sought after in an urban SUV

The Best of Both worlds, as it has Suspension Ride Control - Affording a Soft cushioned Urban Ride whilst affording you the benefit of ripping the rural roads with equal aplomb.

Unfortunately they just don't make SUV's like this any more. So the few that do own these, my word of advice "CHERISH & PRESERVE THEM" They'll yet afford you decades and miles of trouble free driving, provided of course that you maintain them as per manufacturer's specifications.
