Reliable Desert 4x4
AC sensor failed (replaced for $100).
Rear cargo door no longer opens.
Passenger door window shim out of alignment.
I live in one of the remotest parts of Australia, and therefore I need a vehicle that is reliable, but can also handle desert track driving.
The Pajero hugs the tracks extremely well with its lower, wide profile (unlike the Toyota Troopies I use at work). The corrugations are brutal on most vehicles here, but the Pajero is still holding together pretty tight after 35,000km.
The interior cabin has ample head room for those drivers over 6ft, and the seats are very comfortable. I would buy another Pajero.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
