I've a 55 Plate L200 Animal,had it from new traded in my old Discovery. I'm active in the out doors plenty off roading, pulling Caravans' and my boat. It's robust and the 2.5 turbo diesel engine is responsible on fule and I've had it regularly serviced. Only fault I've had to replace the steering box but that's been its only fault since buying it and that was at 107,00 miles I've just done 180,00 and we are still going strong. Good chance ill die before my truck dose!… Read Full Review

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

I bought bought this car in 2004 brand new and to start with everything was fine then 32,000 miles and 4 years later the head gasket went so got that fixed and carried on. A year later the crank casing shatered so i got that fixed as well ( geting a bit pee'd off by now ) then finaly last week the timing belt went (after 81,000 miles) so I SCRAPPED IT. Wish i had not bought it only reason I did was because my 23 year old Land rover county was begining to damage my back but i will be going back… Read Full Review

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

this is the second l200td i have owned the first a for life great machine didnt even have to replace the tyres for the first 2 years!! no mechanical probs at all. the second is a warrior which i still own and just as good as the first. i think people need to realise if you carry lots of weight or tow heavy goods you will put huge strain on the engine no matter how well they are built this will take its toll eventually!!
my father has the nissan navara and if you like to fill up regularily and… Read Full Review

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

My vehicle was 3 months out of warranty. neither the local garage i bought the vehicle from or Mitsubishi customer services were interested… Read Full Review

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).
* 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

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....
Now I've done the research I hear the… Read Full Review

Wanted one of these since seeing it in its launch at the CLA game fair 2006. Bought mine Sept last year, its been great, fairly economic averaging 35mpg and I dont drive slow.
However, I am now totally gutted, the head gasket failed and its going to cost me £2500 in repairs, Mitsubishi acknowledge the problem but wont do anything aobut it.
Doing a bit of research on the internet and it appears that this problem is not a case of if it happens but more like when it happens.
I will be getting… Read Full Review

My only -ve comment on the L200 (4x4 model - manual) is the transmission ratio between 1st and 2nd gear (either 2H or 4H). I don't know the exact ratio but I can feel that the difference between those gears are too much.
A bit difficult for first timer to drive off-road. Need to rev up before shifting to 2nd.
My +ve comment is I never encounter any problem with mine. I have the full confidence with my L200. Coming to 150,000 km and had seen a lot of extreme off-road action since I bought it… Read Full Review

best jeep ever made.will pull 4 tonne at 70 mph and will eat a tank of diesel in 400 miles.engine is reliable if regular oil changed.not prone to rust or chassis distortion.will go over its 110 mph clock.will do burnouts all day.i drive the the jeep to try break it and cant.only down side is goes out of track easily and eats tyres.also should be 3.0 instead of 2.5 needs more ease instead of high turbo boost.sinks like titanic of road because of the weight it is.there a all rounder… Read Full Review
