“53 reg owned from new 70'000 m and 54 reg with 130'000...”

Written on: 14/11/2014 by Clarke411 (1 review written)

I bought my first L200 from new from a main dealer with a very bad reputation, now bankrupt but despite this so far I have had no issues with it apart from a rumbly noise from the gearbox, common fault? I laid it up for about 18 months due to having another vehicle with more seats. I started it after fitting a new battery and it started straight away as if I'd literally just parked it, took it for a MOT and other than some bulbs and cv boots it passed and runs fine. Can't fault it. I have used… Read Full Review

“2010 warrior 176 bhp auto ”

Written on: 26/03/2014 by chip69 (1 review written)

When pulling a trailer uphill the truck goes into a low gear, this is ok until you get to the top of the hill. The truck then wants to stay in that low gear,it wont shift up just revs its nuts off. It seems you have to almost stop for the truck to pisk up as normal. This drives me mad, i wish i had bought a manual instead.Does anybodt know how to sort this problem… Read Full Review

I bought my warrior 2009 with 49,000 miles on the clock? In 2011 after 57,000 58,000 miles hey presto the head gasket went plus bearings and seals on turbo.£1,200 later all was well,8 months later and about 4000 miles hey presto all the oil in the sump decided to make it way and mix with the water,so it looks like it could be another hefty bill.So anybody out there thinking of buying a truck steer clear MITSIBUSHI,I will never buy another ever… Read Full Review

“2009 and 2010 models”

Written on: 05/04/2012

Bought a pre registered 2010 4 life in 2010. Ran like a 3 legged dog from Day1, after continuing fob offs from the dealer and 3000 miles, I decided to trade the vehicle for a higher spec "Raging Bull" from a non franchised dealer,("talk about a fool and his money are soon parted"), this delight at least ran OK, but the paint then came off the factory fitted hardtop-after months of squit and excuses from the local dealer, Mitsubishi then condescended to a cheap hardtop respray. Guess what… Read Full Review

I know the feeling ... bought ours in 2007 new. First engine blew up in 2010 45k just after warranty had lapsed! Reconditioned engine put in ... that tanked last week. Ongoing problems with glow plugs and loosing power throughout. Mitsubishi very hard to deal with even bought a canopy with the truck only to have to wait 3 months for it to arrive when we were told it would be fitted ready when we picked the truck up. Anyone need some spare parts?

Written on: 01/04/2011

Only owned this L200 2.5 diesel for 3 months. Purchased from a local 4x4 dealer which is a part of a larger dealership in Norwich. With only 47000 on the clock I was hopeing this will last me for many years. Since owning it it has been back to have the Air Con serviced and has just had a new Head Gasket fitted. The gear change often feels very notchy and I am hopeing that I will have to fork out for a new clutch in the very near future. Battery failed today which is a non standard Mitsubushi… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2010

Had my L200 crewcab pick-up for 12 years, i have 3 children, 3 border collies and we love outdoor activities so our vehicle choice is limited. This has been the best 4wd i've owned but last couple of years starting to spend a bit more money on repairs so considering a new/newer one. Seems from the reviews its not only the shape thats changed, also its reliability. Could it be that being the most popular crewcab pick-up Mitsubishi are banging them out too fast....that said some previous… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2010

Our company bought an L200 Double Cab 4life DI-D on 1st February 2007 (56 plate).
35-37 mpg solo, 23-25mpg towing (exhibition trailers up to 1400kg).
Practical, comfortable and roomy; a pleasure to drive at all times.
Total cost throughout our ownership of non-service items: £17 inclusive to supply & fit failed oil-pressure switch: this done by a local competitively-priced independent garage (non-Mitsubishi).
Minus points:
* Truckman top had to go back for refitting twice due to poor standard… Read Full Review

I bought it second hand in 2005. It is single cab with 4d56T. A piece of junk. Engine failed just recently. Initially thought about getting replacement Mitsubishi engine but was over priced and I could not trust it. So i bought a Ford Transit engine 2.5DI non turbo and put it in. Never buy an diesel engine with petrol block. It is going to fail… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2011

Yes but you need one with Turbo to make it anyway practical. Your model is about 700kg heavier than mine. Also, you may have to do away with your 4WD and make it permanent 2WD.
<br/>
<br/>Also the engine sits a bit higher thanks to different size sump and the block is a bit bulkier than the Mitsubishi engine.
<br/>
<br/>You can see the detail on how it was done in www.shannonpowerlab.com

Bought this L200 to work on my site, it's job entailed pulling a 300kg trailer up and down a steep hill all day. For pulling power (not on the 'getting ladies front) it's great, a real tugboat of a motor, but the build quality and reliability is SHOCKING!!! Since owning it, new break pipes, new front diff (now broken again!), exhaust fell off, radiator blew up, now the head has actaully cracked!!!! so need new head, gaskets, skimming etc etc etc etc....
