“I love my Pajero”

Written on: 02/05/2014 by MiguelDGS (1 review written)

Reading the review «best car I ever had» I could not resist to express my devotion to this legendary 4x4. My Pajero is 3 door canvas top 2.5tdi I bought it knew when i was 24 and I'm almost 39 and altough I have another car (2008 Volvo XC70 D5) Pajero is still my everyday car, I think I will never buy a car so cool and nice like this, it was love at first feel since the first time I saw it in magazine that I can't remember the name, when I was a young boy without driving license.

“Best car I ever had”

Written on: 21/08/2011

Ok, mine was one of the first grey import Mk2 Pajeros - 2.5 Auto exceed 5 doors, 7 seats, Harvest Gold over Aqua Green, grey leather. For a 1991 car it was fully loaded, Climate Control, electric windows, sunroof etc etc, full leather (very hard wearing), Compass, Altimeter, Inclimometer thingy.. (ok, the last 3 were frankly useless but did look good - and all worked 100%!). Really nice interior for the year and easily put cars 10 years newer to shame. The only downside was the performance… Read Full Review

I've got the last of the mark ones on a h reg if I was to buy another pajero when this one ends its life i wouldn't be tempted to going to a 2.8 later model....I would invest in the early mark 2 which has a 2.5 t intercooled lump the same as the mark1.

Written on: 21/11/2007 by sokaprok99 (1 review written)

Overall I'm very pleased with the pajero's performance and reliability to this point. It performs very well for what it was made to do - It's an off road machine, easily giving a Toyota Lancruiser a run for its money. However if you stick to mostly driving on pavement and freeways this vehicle will not be you first choice. For the prices they go for I would continue to say that they offer the best value out there in a 4x4… Read Full Review

Can't believe how much you can get for the money. Japanese imports are the best - often very low mileage even for early 90's cars. If mine breaks tomorrow I go out and buy another straight away - love it… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2004 by Niall (1 review written)

I drive a 1987 Mitsubishi Pajero (Shogun in some markets) 2.5 TD. It is a pre-intercooler version. This venerable verteran now has 472800km on the clock, the engine still runs like a dream, the bodywork is still excellent, and the base has been protected with waxoil. I am extremely happy with my Pajero, it has never left me stranded on-road or off-road. The only negative issue I can identify is that tight turns at slow speeds in 4x4 mode, especially on dry surfaces, is hard work for the front… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2004 by ARTHUR WILSON (1 review written)

I agree with most points made by the previous reviewee on the Mitsubishi Shogun 2.5TDi, and some, generally the car performs very well in all conditions. Just recently returned from a meeting that was held in a large field, on a very steep hill, everybody got in, luckily but when it came to leaving that was a different matter. I have never been 4x4 trained therefore it is mostly hit and miss with me. Still I selected the very low gear/ 4 wheel and diff lock, I was pulling a 2.5 ton trailer and… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2004 by Big John (1 review written)

I have owned my Mitsubishi Shogun 2.5tdi for 4 months now and its by far the best motor ive ever owned. Its my first 4wd but I have driven most others and nothing comes close. I do go off road occasionaly but only tracks and fields and the pajero loves it as much as I do. Im 6ft 4 and I have loads of head and leg room and after a 4hr drive Ive stepped out as frsh as as the start.Tyres are available very reasonably and for a 2 ton plus motor she isnt toooo hard on the fuel.If you want economy… Read Full Review

I agree entirely with all your comments I have just purchased a 1998 2.8 TD 7 seater,with reguard to fuel consumption being high you should try a 3.5 V8 petrol Range Rover ( I have had 3 in the past ) lucky if you get 15 mpg from them...Shogun is far superior...

“I have owned many 4x4 vehicles and about a year ago I...”

Written on: 23/10/2003 by Gary20 (1 review written)

I have owned many 4x4 vehicles and about a year ago I found a 1988 Mk1 2.5 LWB Hi-Top for very good money. On the test drive the steering felt VERY light compared to Sportrak I was using at the time, and there was a tendency for straight-line wander which was easy to sort out with a few spanners. The exhaust pipe runs very close to a gearbox mounting so there is a good chance of 'Banging' from underneath when you have a full cabin (7 Adults), or while towing a heavy trailor. The mirror size… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/07/2003 by MAC. (1 review written)

I have a Mitsubishi 2.5TD SWB GLS 1993 model. I have always wanted to purchase a shougun and looked everywhere for a decent well looked after model. I found this baby in a garage in preston, the body work was fine, had full service history and had been well looked after. I avarage about 26mpg and you wont get better than that, i try not to be so "Foot-Heavy" when driving the shogun as they can be v.thirsty when thrashed. I dont do any off-road driving with the shogun its a road use vehicle… Read Full Review

119812_Niall.'s Response to 118734_MAC.'s Review

Written on: 29/07/2003

MAC, I agree with all of what you say, I drive a 1987 Pajero (aka Shogun) TD with "only" 448000km on the clock, and on the first engine too. Runs perfect still. I like the chunky boxy looks too. My only gripe with the Pajero is that it doesn't have permanent 4x4, one must stop to shift fom 2x2 to 4x4, and the 4x4 transmission is quite noisy, stiff, atrocious to steer tight turns on dry surfaces, and consumes considerably more beetlejuice. Apart from that, Pajero/Shogun is real solid engineering.
<br>
<br>But still I am looking to buy a permanent 4x4 next, very probably a Land Rover. For a 4x4 it's better to just have a 4L-4H shifter without a 2H option.

Iveco1's Response to 118734_MAC.'s Review

Written on: 18/02/2006

I have owned a 1994 2.5 tdi pajero for about twelve months. I have used it for offroad driving and never had a problem. I owned a land rover 90 before and it spent more time in and out of garages than on the road. The finish and extras on the Pajero do not compare with the land rover.

Weary's Response to 118734_MAC.'s Review

Written on: 15/09/2003

Hi,
<br>
<br>I am from the Pajero club in Australia and I also drive a Pajero 2.5 TDi but the later 1995/96 model. I am finding it next to impossible to find an air filter here. Do yours take the 'oval' shaped air filters about 140mm in height and about 240mm in outside diameter? If so, I would REALLY like the details of your supplier so I can possibly organise.
<br>
<br>Thanks heaps,
<br>Weary.

“I have had the Shogun 2.5 gls SWB turbo deisel MK3 now...”

Written on: 25/06/2003 by Tony B. (1 review written)

I have had the Shogun 2.5 gls SWB turbo deisel MK3 now for 12 months. It was purchased mainly to get around the country with the lads moto cross bike on the back. It will easily touch 90 mph but feels more comfortable at about 75 on the motorway. Towing is easy, you forget you have anything on the back!. The drive is superb and a very spacious interior. Adults getting into the rear on the SWB model I have find it a bit difficult.(I must get some side steps !)
I average about 26mpg, and if I… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2003 by ferkessedougou. (1 review written)

I have had my 1992 model Mitsubishi Shogun 2.5tdi for 2 years now, It was hard parting with 6g's to buy a 10 year old car, but I always wanted one so I stumped up the doh and bought one. The good thing is according to market prices it's still worth about the same, so no big depreciaton on older models.
The car is extremely well built and reliable, it has so far never let me down and passed the MOT with no work to be done. This 2.5 model was only build for about 3 years, and I am sure that the… Read Full Review

119816_Niall.'s Response to 73958_ferkessedougou.'s Review

Written on: 29/07/2003

Good accurate review. I drive a 1967 Pajero TD with 480000km on the clock (first engine still). Pajero is a great puller and offroader. With your 1992 model do you have that terrible stiff jumpy behaviour from the front wheels when making tight circles on dry surfaces? Apparently that is a "design feature" at least for 80s Pajeros, no wonder they recommend no using 4x4 on dry surfaces! I like everything about the Pajero apart from that and the lack of permanent 4x4 which can be handy for those unforeseen circumstances e.g. sudden thundershowers on motorway drives, when stopping to switch from 2x2 to 4x4 is a pain in the neck to be honest!
