1990 Mitsubishi Pajero EXE turbo diesel
The side panel reads turbo wagon, it should rightly be changed to SUPER WAGON
The car was caught in a flood during heavy rains in Feburary of 2000. The previous owner rust-proofed and made it roadworthy, leaving out creature comforts. No Air-Con, No Factory - Radio.
The Clutch simply just went. Which was believed to be a product of the flooding.
Fuel Gauge becomes biased at times, primarily when below a quarter.
As far as reliability, comfort, performance and economy are concerned this car is an absolute stunner.
At most it costs $60 dollars for an entire tank of diesel, if driven economically half a tank will yield 370+ kms.
The rear end is leaf-sprung while the front is independant. A little different to my fathers range rover. Basically he can get to places I can't when 4WD on our hunting trips. Albiet insanely rocky terrain that any sane person wouldn't dare venture over.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

We bought a 1990 NG 2.5 turbo diesel exe wagon in April 2009. The only things I have had to do is replace the alternator belt and the rear tires.
This is by far the best vehicle we have ever owned.

I have driven one of these for the past 20 years. It has never let me down. It looks bad, but drives great. I will fly next week to Townsville, North Queensland Australia, and pick up the old beast and drive it to Melbourne. I am not worried about the vehicle getting me there. Then it will be up into the snow. This thing will go anywhere with relative ease. Top car.
