1987 Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5 turbo diesel
This Pajero is still great overall 4x4 vehicle, even though the design is 20 years old
The power steering developed a small leak.
The engine was fully reconditioned at about 235,000 k's by the previous owner.
There is great driver visibility.
The vehicle performs very well in rugged off road conditions.
This Pajero has excellent pulling power and traction in low range, and is able to haul heavy trailer loads out of steep positions.
For a reasonably compact car, it has loads of usable space and great storage capacity.
The none-rack and pinion steering is a bit vague on the open road.
The overall gearing ratio means the engine is a bit busy at 100kph.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have an ND Pajero, Its awesome. Its got 250 thousand km and drives very well. Pain in the neck to change fan belts. Great radiator, great off-road. Its not a power machine, but it does the job. Its very very good on fuel. I have noticed there is a bit of a leak in the power steering box. Other than that it is a very reliable car and I would recommend one to anyone.
